"As machines increasingly complement human labor in the workplace, we will all need to adjust to reap the benefits." - Manika, J. & Sneader, K. (Executive Briefing, McKinsey Global Institute, June 2018)
Machines and artificial intelligence that can complement, replace, and even outperform humans are rapidly changing our understandings of work and the future of the workforce. How will your organization likely be affected by these game changers? What is your responsibility to the organization and its employees? How should you respond?
This session will help you:
- Identify the impacts that automation and AI are likely to have on your workforce in the next 0-3 years
- Explore approaches/strategies that you, as a leader or HR professional, can employ to help your organization effectively navigate the challenges and opportunities associated with automation and AI
