During this interactive discussion, our panelists will examine how HR professionals, policymakers, and regulators can approach automation in a way that ultimately benefits both workers and the workplace. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will play an important role in the future of work. HR professionals are looking to AI technology and automated employment decision tools to meet the needs of their organization including talent acquisition, retention, performance management, and much more.
Today, 1 in 4 organizations report using AI to support HR-related activities; and 43% of CHROs say that they plan to invest more in AI/automation for HR activities.

HR professionals are at the intersection of AI and an increasingly complex environment as policymakers begin to regulate and address the use of AI in the workplace. SHRM and our nearly 325,000 members are well-positioned to lead the conversation on this evolving issue to best address the current, and future needs of work, workers, and the workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how organizations and HR professionals can leverage automated employment decision tools to their advantage. 
  • Recognize the importance of ensuring that AI systems are utilized in a manner that avoids bias in the hiring process, performance management or other areas of HR.  
  • Understand how HR professionals can work effectively with lawmakers to create policies that promote more inclusive and dynamic workplaces.
