Why Artificial Intelligence Will Help HR Teams Reach Strategic Goals

As a Human Resources or People Ops team, you’re responsible for enabling employee success. Whether it’s onboarding or professional development, the employee’s lifecycle depends on you. You need the right tools at your disposal so you can support others. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) might sound like an intimidating idea, but it’s actually the most compelling new solution to problems HR faces every day. We all know how the old adage goes: knowledge is power. Think of AI as a tool that harnesses information. With the right tool, anyone in your company can access helpful, accurate information instantly.

For instance, if Jenna could ask if she has Veteran’s Day off and receive an automated answer, you wouldn’t have to waste time finding the company calendar, confirming it’s a holiday, and emailing or messaging her in chat to tell her that she does, in fact, have the day off.

Ultimately, the employee population no longer needs to send emails, chat messages, or do a drive-by of HR offices to ask questions. Plus, you save time hunting down the appropriate documents and sending it via email or chat. Your team can spend more time developing and implementing strategic initiatives at your organization instead of answering questions that constantly get asked.

AI is a game changer like instant messaging and mobile phones. Technology is advancing rapidly, but at the heart of AI lies the ability to aggregate information so businesses can use that information as a catalyst for fulfillment and success for their employees.
