Rise of Artificial Intelligence in Human Resource Management
Human resource management’s future lies in making the business function more empathetic and individual-centric while creating governance mechanisms, reporting structures, and systems that ensure horizontal and vertical equity. Artificial intelligence can enable human resource leaders to zero down the gaps with people by leveraging data and digital transformation and make the dialogue between employees and employer enterprises seamless.
