Here Come the Machines - Preparing for the Impact of AI & Automation on their Workforce
In this webinar, Dr. Jerome Rekart with Southern New Hampshire University shares findings on from HR and L&D leaders about their thoughts on AI and automation in their industries.
Though there is little disagreement about whether or not advances in AI and automation will affect the global economy over the next five years, the specifics of which industries will be hit the hardest and the identification of the jobs that will no longer be needed and which will be created is still unclear.
To determine how organizations are preparing for the impending – though uncertain – impact of machines on their workforce, Southern New Hampshire University surveyed 500 US-based HR and Learning and Development leaders about their thoughts on AI and automation and their industries, organizations and employees. Results include data related to the predicted displacement of workers in various sectors and differently-sized organizations and the steps – if any – that companies are taking to prepare. These findings are examined in the context of other research exploring the views of workers themselves and their expectations for employers.
Key takeaways from this webinar include:
- Gain an understanding of the ways in which AI and automation are believed to impact different industries and organizations of various sizes
- Examine how organizations are addressing the integration of new technologies
- Discuss strategies for displaced employees and the logic behind upskilling strategies in advance
