Providing efficiency for the entire workforce

Watch the 30-minute, On-Demand Webinar Replay Now!

HR departments are like the proverbial kid in a candy store when it comes to selecting AI and bots “goodies” to lobby for and ultimately deploy. In the digital era, capabilities not even on the radar as recently as a couple years ago are getting increasing air time in HR staff meetings, including themes such as personalizing the employee experience based on machine learning. And in those same meetings, AI and bots are actually being discussed as perhaps the answer to the age-old question of how to invert the HR time allocation pyramid, allowing more time to be spent on strategic rather than tactical and transactional activities.

But cutting edge can also be bleeding edge. While such R&D investment themes may be a hot topic, there is still an awareness that both product capabilities and maturity and customer readiness need to be aligned, that choosing the most practical and impactful AI use cases is critical, and that these technologies still blend together for many.

Vice President Steve Goldberg, Ventana Research’s HCM practice leader, has been monitoring, covering and providing insights into these emerging capabilities, including leading roundtables of HR executives sharing early experiences. In this informative free webinar, Steve addresses the following topics:

  • What exactly the new digital technologies are and the opportunities they represent
  • What early-adopter HR practitioners are reporting and learning about AI and bots
  • How “smart bots” are changing customer and vendor strategies
  • What the current state of the vendor landscape is in these new digital technology areas 
  • What change management considerations are key for those considering undertaking this journey
