Disruptive technologies, from artificial intelligence to virtual reality, have the potential to transform the world of work. Many roles and skills are becoming outdated or evolving in our machine age.
Workforce transformation represents an opportunity for HR leaders to deliver solutions to help drive competitive advantages for their business.
Since HR is integrated with every functional group, HR leaders have a holistic view of the organisation and are positioned to lead the conversation on workplace evolution and transformation, according to our most recent global research.
The seismic shift driven by AI poses wider questions for both society and governments. And for companies and their leaders, it means that the skills that companies need, and the way employees learn and progress in their careers, are being transformed. CEOs are having to embrace a new way of thinking about talent, workforce strategy, and the need for upskilling.
In our recent CEO Outlook Survey 2019, only 10 percent of Irish CEOs said that they have implemented AI in automating some of their processes, with a quarter (26 percent) at pilot stage and two thirds (64 percent) at only a limited implementation.
