ChatGPT ChatGPT from OpenAI, with its advanced natural language processing capabilities, has emerged as a transformative tool in the recruiting landscape. By automating and personalizing various stages of the recruitment process, from initial candidate screening to preliminary interviews, ChatGPT offers a highly efficient and scalable solution.

Google Gemini Enter Gemini AI , a multimodal AI that goes beyond the text-based approach. I can analyze resumes, cover letters, and even video interviews, understanding not just the words, but also the skills and experiences conveyed. Imagine identifying a candidate's coding strengths by reviewing their GitHub profile, or gauging their communication style and cultural fit through video interviews. This holistic approach empowers recruiters to build a well-rounded picture of each candidate, streamlining the hiring process and uncovering hidden talent. Additional points you can consider mentioning: I can help with outreach by generating personalized emails to potential candidates, highlighting their relevant achievements. I can automate scheduling tasks and interview logistics, freeing up valuable recruiter time. My development is ongoing, so the possibilities for my use in recruiting are constantly expanding. (Also if you really want to learn how to use Gemini for Recruiting. Make sure to follow Donnie Gupton ?) Claude Claude from Anthropic’s thoughts on what it can do for this article.  (not going to lie.  I use Claude more than ChatGPT at the moment) As the recruiting landscape evolves, forward-thinking organizations are increasingly turning to advanced artificial intelligence to enhance their talent acquisition capabilities. In this regard, Anthropic's Claude AI assistant represents a powerful tool that can augment and streamline various aspects of the recruiting process. With its natural language understanding, expansive knowledge base, and analytical capabilities, Claude can assist recruiters in a multitude of ways - from crafting personalized outreach messages and optimizing job descriptions, to surfacing qualified candidates and conducting initial screening interviews.

What are the best practices for employee offboarding?If not managed tactfully, employee offboarding can be awkward and uncomfortable both for you and your former employees.Here are our employee offboarding suggestions that you can implement to create a graceful and successful employee offboarding process:1. Ensure fairness during your employee offboardingYou should make sure that your former employees are being treated with fairness and kindness while they are leaving your organization.You can thank your former employees for their contributions and the time they invested during their employment.Ensuring a civil departure will protect your organization from legal issues and data breaches. Moreover, you should maintain a positive relationship with your former employees so they can be brand ambassadors or industry connections. 2. Identify why your employees are leavingThe scope of your employee offboarding will change depending on the reason for your employee’s departure.For example, if your employee is retiring the offboarding process will be more straightforward. However, you can gain valuable insights from resigning employees who will work elsewhere.Furthermore, employees who have been let go might require a different approach when it comes to offboarding. 3. Communicate with the office about the departureYou should communicate with the rest of your crew about the departure as soon as possible because if you wait, your team might perceive the reasons for the departure differently and even think of it as firing.You need to be honest about why your former employee is leaving, whether it’s a voluntary or involuntary departure.Furthermore, avoid gossip since it is unprofessional and can ruin the entire employee offboarding process. 4. Secure your company assets and revoke accessTo ensure compliance with the company protocols and to secure your company assets you need an offboarding process.Before letting your employee go, you should make sure that the employee turns in your company equipment including keys, badges, uniforms, electronic devices, cars, and documents. With this practice, you will be also able to prevent data leaks.Moreover, you should revoke your departing employee’s access to your organization’s systems. These systems include email, CRM systems, social media, internal platforms, and sales databases.During the separation period, you can give your employee some time to remove their information from your systems. 5. Hold an exit interviewEmployee offboarding can’t be imagined without an exit interview. With an exit interview, you will be able to collect insight into your company’s strengths and weaknesses. Your former employees can give you feedback on workload, company culture, and management in general.A few important questions to ask during your exit interviews include: How satisfactory was your job? Did it meet your expectations? How did you get along with your manager and your coworkers? How can we improve ourselves? What are our strengths? What’s enjoyable about working here? You can find other questions by reading our article about exit interview questions! And you can always tailor these questions in a way that works better for your organization’s offboarding practices. Using review software for exit interviews: It isn’t always a matter of if you’re conducting exit interviews but HOW you’re conducting exit interviews. You need a digitized solution in place to make sure you are getting all the necessary insights from your exit interviews. This is where you can use the best performance review software for Microsoft Teams: Teamflect.Step 1: Go into Teamflect’s Reviews ModuleThe performance reviews module inside Teamflect serves as a hub for all the reviews conducted in your organization.

TRY TEAMFLECT FOR FREE No sign-up required. 6. Successfully transfer employee information You need to keep the departing employee’s information within your organization. The specifics of information transfer will change depending on what kind of job it was, but you need to consider these important elements: Have a solid understanding of your departing employee’s daily work routine. Have access to the systems and files the employee used. Know who your former employee worked with. Determine if your new employee has to go through extensive training once you replace the former employee. 7. Minimize its negative impact on productivity Your employee’s departure can disrupt the workflow of your team and have a negative impact on productivity. Your team members might be assigned to work that the former employee couldn’t finish and this can lead to a significant amount of stress in your workplace.So, you need to be as transparent and tolerant as possible when it comes to managing the changes of your team’s daily work routines.Moreover, you need to work with the former employee so you can successfully transfer organizational knowledge to reduce the departure’s potential damage to productivity. 8. Succession Planning is key! No matter how an employee leaves, they are sure to leave a gaping hole in their stead. You need to be ready to transfer the departing employee’s responsibilities and projects to someone else.There are plenty of succession planning methodologies you can use in order to name a replacement for the employee leaving. We strongly recommend using the 9-box grid talent analysis for succession planning. Why should you offboard your employees? 1. Employee offboarding improves security When an employee decides to leave your company, whether it’s a friendly or not-so-friendly departure, you need to secure your company data.Securing company information by preventing access to critical data, and restricting access to your company websites, important documents and software will help you keep things confidential.By implementing offboarding best practices, you can also prevent theft or misuse of your organization’s equipment.There is more to securing your company data. Let’s say one of your salespeople is leaving. If they still have access to the list of your top prospects, they can do business with your potential customers and this means trouble. So, you need employee offboarding to have a secure transition. 2. Organizational transfer of knowledge When an employee leaves, it’s similar to losing a walking encyclopedia of work-related information. This especially applies to senior employees who has years of experience working with you.These long-tenured employees know about the unwritten rules and their wisdom can’t be found in manuals.So, you need to be smart about your employee offboarding. You can minimize the disruption that might result from employee turnover by following formal procedures to document and pass on your organizational knowledge.By ensuring formal documentation you can continue to run your business smoothly and facilitate the onboarding of your new team members. 3. Opportunity to receive honest feedback When someone decides to move on, don’t think of it just as a farewell, their departure will also give you valuable insights.Employee offboarding can serve as a reality check because there might have been things happening under the radar such as manager issues, problems with colleagues or issues with your business strategy.However, employee offboarding is not all about troubleshooting. You will hear the positives including what business practices work and which employees contribute to a healthy company atmosphere.Even if it’s not all rainbows and butterflies, you should try to get to the heart of the matter by asking the right questions. You should take employee feedback seriously since it’s a chance to level up your company culture and business practices.Common Offboarding Mistakes to AvoidYou should avoid these common mistakes when tailoring your own employee offboarding process: 1. Not conducting the exit interview thoroughly You should be thorough during your exit interview to collect valuable information on why your employee is leaving. You need to ask about specific aspects regarding employee experience such as: Team harmony and dynamics. Working environment. The effectiveness of the management. Put simply, during exit interviews you should aim to understand how you can improve your company. 2. Not taking security measures seriously Your company’s security should come first so during the offboarding process it’s advisable to adhere to a zero trust model. To implement this model, you can change passwords, close accounts, and restrict access once your employee leaves your company.On top of that, it’s recommended to restrict building access and invalidate ID cards of your former employees. 3. Failing to take a data-driven approach to offboarding Your HR team and leadership should evaluate the offboarding process periodically to make sure that you are getting the desired results.You can review these elements of your employee offboarding process: How valuable the data you collect from the exit interviews. The purpose and efficiency of your exiting process. The effects of different offboarding practices on employee perceptions. 4. Holding only HR responsible for offboarding You need to create cross departmental harmony to ensure a smooth offboarding process. To achieve this, you can include: The former employee’s department IT department. And your HR department. Employee offboarding requires the collaboration of these departments.

    What is Employer Branding? 根据前亚马逊CEO杰夫·贝佐斯的说法,“你的品牌是当你不在房间里时人们对你的评价。”对我们这些在招聘领域的人来说,你的品牌是求职者和潜在候选人在线上阅读关于你的信息、在你的网站和社交媒体上看到的内容,以及从你现在的员工那里在Glassdoor等网站上听到的信息。 所有这些,还有更多,构成了你的雇主品牌。在这篇博客文章中,我们深入探讨了良好的雇主品牌战略的基本原理,并分享了如何将雇主品牌融入你的招聘工作的提示。 According to former Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, “Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room.” For those of us in the recruiting space, your brand is what job seekers and potential candidates read about you online, see on your website and social media, and hear about from your current employees on sites like Glassdoor. All of this, and more, is what makes up your employer brand. In this blog post, we dig into the fundamentals of a good employer branding strategy and share tips on how you can incorporate employer branding into your recruitment efforts. Defining Employer Branding Employer branding is the intentional management of an organization’s reputation and value proposition amongst current and prospective employees. In other words, it refers to efforts made by members of an organization (most often, recruitment and talent acquisition teams) to cultivate a positive image of their company’s brand, both internally and externally. Having a strong employer brand increases your credibility with job seekers, reduces company turnover, and can dramatically reduce your cost-per-hire. According to LinkedIn, among small to mid-size businesses, 72% of recruiting leaders worldwide agreed that employer brand has a significant impact on hiring. Image via @HubSpot on Instagram Their research also shows that having an employer branding strategy has an impact on their business’ bottom line, with a 50% reduced cost-per-hire, 50% more qualified job applicants, and a 28% reduced employee turnover. Numbers don’t lie: employer branding can have a significant impact on your business’ overall reputation, as well as your entire recruitment funnel. When job seekers can get a glimpse into what it’s like to work at your company, read reviews from current and past employees about their experiences, and see your brand’s initiative to share your culture outside of your business’ walls, they become attracted to your brand’s online presence. From there, it becomes that much easier for your recruiting team to engage those qualified job seekers, convert them into candidates, and, eventually, hire them into your organization. Who’s Responsible for Employer Branding? Employer branding, from an internal perspective, is culture, and culture is the responsibility of every leader and every employee within an organization. It requires input and, ultimately, buy-in from everyone throughout the organization. When you have a culture that your entire company believes in, people outside of your company will start to believe in it too. The implementation and execution of an employer branding strategy, however, remains largely the responsibility of the organization’s talent acquisition team. Why? Because talent acquisition and recruitment teams know their organization, and their ideal candidates, best. As such, they play a major role in helping to shape, share, and maintain the message of their organization’s employer brand. It’s up to them to understand how their organization is viewed (both internally and externally), to create and circulate a positive identity with current employees and stakeholders, and to craft a strategy around communicating that employer brand identity outside the walls of the company. This can be done in a few ways, from utilizing social media as a recruiting tool to elevating job descriptions to showcase company culture and perks, as well as engaging with reviews left on sites like Glassdoor. In some cases, like social media, it will make sense to team up with your organization’s marketing team to ensure that your messaging is aligned with theirs. By doing so, you‘ll be able to work together to achieve both teams’ goals. Building an employer brand is no easy task – it requires research, testing, and optimization. But in the end, it can become a main driver of applications from candidates who are excited to work at your organization. How to Build Employer Branding into the Recruiting Process In many ways, your employer branding is the recruiting process. Candidates have the power to research your organization, look up reviews, and even talk to current employees – all without ever contacting a recruiter or clicking on a job posting. When it comes to employer branding within the recruiting process, there are various moving pieces to pay close attention to, including: Cultivating an employer brand presence on social media: Become a champion of your own company culture, and make sure that job seekers who research your brand’s social presence (pssst…a lot of them will!) get a clear, accurate picture of what it’s like to work at your company. Improving and optimizing your corporate careers site: Despite the rise of social media, most candidates still visit a company’s corporate career site to learn more about their culture and the type of work they do, and to look for potential employment opportunities. Put your best foot forward with high-quality employee testimonial videos, office photography, and an accurate description of who your company is. Responding to employee reviews: Our research has found that on average, a higher Glassdoor rating leads to an almost ~50% increase in application conversion rates. Replying to every employee review your organization has on Glassdoor, whether positive or negative, can have a massive impact on the likelihood that job seekers will see, click on, and apply to your jobs. Ensuring a positive candidate experience: Word travels fast in the age of the Internet, and if a candidate has a poor experience during your hiring process, they’ll likely share their negative feelings. Continuously audit your hiring process for potential roadblocks, communicate timelines and expectations clearly with candidates, and ensure that even candidates who don’t receive an offer feel positive about their experience. And, like any other organizational initiative, employer branding efforts should be continually measured and improved. Common metrics include: Candidate and new hire satisfaction with the hiring process Cost-per-hire Time-to-hire Quality of hire (like new hire retention, hiring manager satisfaction) Number of applicants Employee retention rates Employee engagement scores Social media sentiment Number of social media followers Traffic to corporate career site Review site ratings (like Glassdoor and Indeed) eNPS (employee Net Promoter Score) Placement on employer ranking sites New hire interviews Employee exit surveys But don’t worry – you don’t need to measure every metric we’ve listed here (unless you want to, of course!). Where possible, set benchmarks ahead of the launch of your employer branding program, so you can later measure against the specific metrics that are most valuable to your organization. Connect these chosen metrics to your recruiting goals, and don’t forget to pay attention to post-hire measures of quality, such as new hire retention and employee satisfaction. Why Investing in Employer Branding Matters Across the board, one of the biggest obstacles that candidates come up against during their job search is not knowing what it’s like to work for an organization (LinkedIn). Think about it: you stumble on a job title you’re interested in, read the job description, and might come away knowing more about the position…but nothing about the company that position is for. So, you do a quick Google search, read a few positive (and, likely, a few negative) company reviews, visit the company’s social media (where they showcase their marketing efforts), and take a look at the careers page (which hosts their other various open positions). And still, you’ve learned nothing about the company’s values, culture, or what it might be like to join the team. Often, this can keep good-fit candidates from ever clicking on the “Submit Application” button. Your reputation plays a key factor in helping candidates take that final step to enter your recruitment pipeline. Having a positive reputation leads to more interest in your company, lower recruitment costs, and an employer brand and culture that your employees can rave about. By investing in employer branding, you can improve both your bottom line, as well as the overall culture of your organization.

The Consortium is catalyzed by the work of the U.S.-EU Trade and Technology Council's (TTC) Talent for Growth Task Force, with the goal of exploring AI's impact on ICT job roles, enabling workers to find and access relevant training programs, and connecting businesses to skilled and job-ready workers. Working as a private sector collaborative, the Consortium is evaluating how AI is changing the jobs and skills workers need to be successful. The first phase of work will culminate in a report with actionable insights for business leaders and workers. Further details will be shared in the coming months. Findings will be intended to offer practical insights and recommendations to employers that seek ways to reskill and upskill their workers in preparation for AI-enabled environments. Consortium members represent a cross section of companies innovating on the cutting edge of AI that also understand the current and impending impact of AI on the workforce. Individually, Consortium members have documented opportunities and challenges presented by AI. The collaborative effort enables their organizations to coalesce insights, recommend action plans, and activate findings within their respective broad spheres of influence. "AI is accelerating the pace of change for the global workforce, presenting a powerful opportunity for the private sector to help upskill and reskill workers for the future," said Francine Katsoudas, Executive Vice President and Chief People, Policy & Purpose Officer, Cisco. "The mission of our newly unveiled AI-Enabled Workforce Consortium is to provide organizations with knowledge about the impact of AI on the workforce and equip workers with relevant skills. We look forward to engaging other stakeholders—including governments, NGOs, and the academic community—as we take this important first step toward ensuring that the AI revolution leaves no one behind." The Consortium's work is inspired by the TTC's Talent for Growth Task Force and Cisco Chair and CEO Chuck Robbins' leadership of its skills training workstream, and input from the U.S. Department of Commerce. The TTC was established in June 2021 by U.S. President Biden, European Commission President von der Leyen, and European Council President Michel to promote U.S. and EU competitiveness and prosperity through cooperation and democratic approaches to trade, technology, and security. "At the U.S. Department of Commerce, we're focused on fueling advanced technology and deepening trade and investment relationships with partners and allies around the world. This work is helping us build a strong and competitive economy, propelled by a talented workforce that's enabling workers to get into the good quality, high-paying, family-sustaining jobs of the future. We recognize that economic security and national security are inextricably linked. That's why I'm proud to see the efforts of the Talent for Growth Task Force continue with the creation of the AI-Enabled ICT Workforce Consortium," said U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo. "I am grateful to the consortium members for joining in this effort to confront the new workforce needs that are arising in the wake of AI's rapid development. This work will help provide unprecedented insight on the specific skill needs for these jobs. I hope that this Consortium is just the beginning, and that the private sector sees this as a call to action to ensure our workforces can reap the benefits of AI." The AI-Enabled ICT Workforce Consortium's efforts address a business critical and growing need for a proficient workforce that is trained in various aspects of AI, including the skills to implement AI applications across business processes. The Consortium will leverage its members and advisors to recommend and amplify reskilling and upskilling training programs that are inclusive and can benefit multiple stakeholders – students, career changers, current IT workers, employers, and educators – in order to skill workers at scale to engage in the AI era. In its first phase of work, the Consortium will evaluate the impact of AI on 56 ICT job roles and provide training recommendations for impacted jobs. These job roles include 80% of the top 45 ICT job titles garnering the highest volume of job postings for the period February 2023-2024 in the United States and five of the largest European countries by ICT workforce numbers (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the Netherlands) according to Indeed Hiring Lab. Collectively, these countries account for a significant segment of the ICT sector, with a combined total of 10 million ICT workers. Consortium members universally recognize the urgency and importance of their combined efforts with the acceleration of AI in all facets of business and the need to build an inclusive workforce with family-sustaining opportunities. Consortium members commit to developing worker pathways particularly in job sectors that will increasingly integrate artificial intelligence technology. To that end, Consortium members have established forward thinking goals with skills development and training programs to positively impact over 95 million individuals around the world over the next 10 years. Consortium member goals include: Cisco to train 25 million people with cybersecurity and digital skills by 2032. IBM to skill 30 million individuals by 2030 in digital skills, including 2 million in AI. Intel to empower more than 30 million people with AI skills for current and future jobs by 2030. Microsoft to train and certify 10 million people from underserved communities with in-demand digital skills for jobs and livelihood opportunities in the digital economy by 2025. SAP to upskill two million people worldwide by 2025. Google has recently announced EUR 25 million in funding to support AI training and skills for people across Europe.

    Will Chatbots Take Over HR Tech? Paradox Sets The Pace. 在快速发展的人力资源技术领域,Paradox.ai 已成为领跑者,其先进的对话式人工智能平台彻底改变了招聘流程。通过利用自然语言处理和人工智能,Paradox.ai 提供了一个全面的解决方案,涵盖了从最初的职位申请到入职的整个招聘过程。该平台不仅简化了筛选和面试安排等繁琐流程,还提升了应聘者的整体体验,显著改善了招聘时间和招聘质量指标。 Paradox.ai 由亚伦-马托斯(Aaron Matos)于 2016 年创立,目前为联合利华、CVS Health 和通用汽车等大客户提供服务,实现了 90% 以上的招聘流程自动化。 Paradox.ai 凭借其强大的集成能力和大幅缩短招聘时间、降低招聘成本的能力,在人力资源技术领域充分体现了对话式人工智能的变革力量。 Chatbots used to be tinker-toys. You type, try to get help, but usually result in “please call support.” Well all this has changed. Thanks to advanced NLP (natural language processing) and AI (retrieval-augmented generation) chatbots are entire applications. They can answer complex questions, search databases, and invoke transactions on your behalf. Pretty soon we’ll be able to ask our phones “please find me a flight to Los Angeles next Tuesday morning” and the system will check your location and calendar, look at flights, and book you a seat. Where is this going in HR? Well the leader in this space is Paradox.ai, a company that pioneered the application of conversational AI in recruiting. And their system “defines the category.” Let me explain. Recruiting Is The Perfect Market For Conversational AI Recruiting is a goldmine for automation. When you post a job, applicants want to ask many predictable things: “How much does it pay?” “What are the hours?” or “What uniform do I need” or “What are the benefits?” The recruiter, a person devoted to filling positions, has to answer all these questions and more. They have to screen candidates, schedule interviews, check for qualifications, and look at credentials, experience, and more. It’s time-consuming, error-prone, and filled with wasted time. (That’s why talent acquisition teams have many “scheduler” and admins.) The average “time to hire” is over 45 days and often the process goes on for months. And throughout the experience the job seeker is left wondering “when will they call back” or “what else do I need to know?” (CEOs cite hiring as the third most time-wasting process in companies, following emails and meetings, estimated at “40% wasted time.”) Paradox uses Conversational AI to solve this problem. And because this is a “narrow but deep” space, the system does many things we can learn from in all our AI efforts. Paradox was founded by Aaron Matos in 2016. Aaron’s vision was to transform the candidate experience, revolutionizing the way candidates apply to jobs. Today Paradox has become a complete Conversational AI Recruitment Platform (chat to apply, scheduling, candidate support, ATS, assessments, onboarding, career site, and more), serving clients like Unilever, CVS Health, Pfizer, L’Oreal, Nestle, McDonald’s FedEx, Compass Group, Disney, and General Motors. The platform automates tasks such as screening for requirements, interview scheduling, reminders, offers, and new hire onboarding. And because it’s so easy to use, it helps companies radically improves time-to-hire and quality of hire. Based on my conversations with clients, Paradox can automate more than 90% of the end-to-end hiring process, saving hiring managers hours every week and increasing candidate conversion by more than 10 times. But this innovation did not happen overnight. As you know, going to a candidate website and looking for a job is a frustrating process. There are often hundreds of jobs listed, a complex scrolling website and very hard to even determine what job to apply for. You might argue that the website paradigm for job applications was never really a good idea in the first place. People don’t want to browse for jobs: they want to apply for a job that’s best for them. So the first thing Paradox did was create an easy to use assistant (Olivia) so candidates could ask questions and schedule interviews. And this meant that Paradox had to build integrations with every ATS and personal email and calendar tools out there. Then, as companies started to use Paradox for scheduling, the company added more. Today Olivia, the chatbot, can integrate with background check vendors, schedule interviews, deliver assessments (Paradox acquired a conversational assessment Traitify designed for this), and function as an ATS … all from a mobile phone. In many ways Paradox can be “the integration platform” for candidates and recruiters, stitching together the messy systems behind the scenes. This turned into a massive opportunity. Just as the Google Assistant or Siri hopes to be our single contact with the internet, Paradox partners with systems of record like Workday, SAP, and Oracle to bring conversational AI to any company. The company’s revenues have grown 11 times in the last four years, and are now nearly doubling each year. For customers Paradox has been amazing. As the candidate pipeline speeds up (by an order of magnitude), clients get higher quality candidates with dramatically reduced staff. (Staffing administrators can almost go away.) Consider high-volume hiring companies. These businesses (McDonald’s, Compass Group, Neighborly, FedEx, Disney) hire service-related workers on a regular basis. Their revenue is dependent on having enough people. With Paradox they can set up a “continuous recruitment process,” one that even hires people the same day they apply. Paradox has become essential to these companies growth, often paying for itself in less than a year (through reduced hiring staff, reduced spend on job ads, and reduced turnover.) Today, as Paradox built out its ATS, customers can rely on the platform to integrate front end tool (job portals and candidate support) to back end tools scheduling, ATS, onboarding) most of which are legacy. One of our clients has 27 recruiting tools and they anticipate replacing more than half of them with a platform like Paradox. What about higher level white collar roles? Paradox works here too. General Motors uses Paradox along with Workday (ATS), (branded Evie) to redesign the process. Interview Scheduling: Evie automates scheduling of phone screens and interviews between recruiters, candidates, and internal teams. This has reduced the time taken for interview scheduling from an average of five days to 29 minutes. Candidate Experience: Evie interacts with candidates from the moment they land on GM’s career site until the completion of their interview. Candidates appreciate the immediate communication from Evie after they apply or complete an interview, and enjoy the autonomy to select and change interview times. Efficiency and Cost Savings: The automation of interview scheduling has led to a major reduction in the cost of external contractors for coordination. Career Site Interaction: Evie sits on GM’s career site, answering questions from potential candidates about jobs, benefits, and company culture. This interaction enhances the candidate’s experience and provides them with immediate responses to their queries. Where Is Paradox Going The company is perfectly positioned to continue its growth as companies look for AI solutions to improve the productivity and effectiveness of recruiting. And demand is high: the 2024 PwC CEO survey found that recruiting was considered the #3 “most bureaucratic process” by CEOs (following email and meetings). The impact on recruiters? All positive. Clients tell us they can redeploy hiring staff to help recruiters focus on the most important part of their job: talking with candidates. But there’s a much bigger story. When a job candidate is handled efficiently and effectively the process becomes a brand-builder for the candidate, improving quality of hire. Ambitious job seekers will not put up with (or wait for) a messy, confusing hiring process. So not only is the process faster and more efficient, the quality of hire goes up. Companies are desperately looking for AI solutions that work. As Paradox has proven, when you focus deeply on the problem, conversational AI can be transformational. Listen to my conversation with Adam Godson (CEO) and you’ll hear the details. This is where the HR Tech market is going.

    Josh Bersin :劳动力市场已完全改变:您真的准备好了吗? Josh Bersin 最新撰文谈到,随着以婴儿潮一代为主的劳动力队伍的衰落和具有独特期望和职业模式的新一代的崛起,劳动力市场发生了巨大的变化。这一新劳动力的特点是偏好组合职业和副业,他们要求尊重、灵活性和精心设计工作的机会。企业在适应这些变化时面临着挑战,职位普遍空缺,人员流动增加。文章强调,企业需要采用一种动态的组织模式,优先考虑授权、内部流动性和员工积极性,以便在这个新的劳动力市场中茁壮成长。这种适应的关键在于了解劳动力现在寻求的是成长、灵活性以及他们的价值观与工作之间有意义的结合。 英文原文如下,推荐了解 The labor market has changed before our eyes. Employers and HR teams better watch out. Over the last five decades baby boomers defined the workforce. Today things could not be more different, and this change impacts all of us. I was born in the 1950s, growing up in a world where the middle class experienced steadily increasing standards of living. My father was a scientist, my mother sold art, and my brother and I had a nice middle-class life. This included a three stage career: education | work | retirement. I went to college, studied hard, and got a good job as an engineer. My career went on a predictable path. I worked for Exxon and then IBM – each company giving me training, development, and potential for long-term career. I met many great people, learned about work, got married and had a family. My cohort, the baby boomers, was huge. Companies built entire talent systems for us – onboarding, training, predictable career growth, developmental assignments, leadership development, and retirement programs. We strapped ourselves in and enjoyed the journey. Fast forward to now: things are very different. Today’s working population bulge (median age 33, born in the early 1990s,) entered the workforce in a disrupted world. They joined companies during a boom, experienced the pandemic in their 20’s, and live in a world where everything is on the internet. While my generation revered our employers, these workers see every corporate mistake in real-time. They expect their bosses to earn their respect, otherwise they’ll “quietly quit” or start moonlighting on the side. While my generation expected to work for only a few employers during a career, today people build what Lynda Gratton calls “a portfolio career.” More than 2/3 of workers have side-hustles and their resume is filled with projects, businesses, activities, and professional interests. If you look at the LinkedIn profiles of most high performers they look like personal journeys, far different from the linear career paths we had in the past. While most of these changes came slowly, the end result is profound: the expectations, needs, and demands of workers are different. And businesses have struggled to keep up. Companies have vast amounts of unfilled positions, we suffer high turnover in almost every role, and labor unions are growing in number. What do companies do? We have to accept and understand that the labor market has totally changed. We live in a world where employees will live into their 100s. Young workers are postponing getting married and having children and they see their career as a long series of experiences. The norms of a long-term linear career have ended: people try new things, change industries, and live in what I call a “pixelated” job market. And rather than blindly trust employers, people bring high expectations to work. Young workers don’t expect to “become the job,” they want the job to “become them.” (Often called “job crafting.”) And given the shortage of workers in every role, this trend is just getting bigger. While economists believe the job market will soften and employers will have more power over time, I think those days are over. Life just isn’t going back to the way it was. Despite the growth of AI, companies are more dependent on their workforce than ever. And with 70% of the jobs now service-related (healthcare, retail, hospitality), employees really are our product. I look at it this way. Companies and employers live in a pool of labor: it’s the needs and expectations of people who decide what we can and should do. People are upset about inflation. They’re worried about climate change. They want CEOs to behave ethically. And they want flexible work that lets them live a joyful life. And every year the workforce becomes more educated and connected. (The percentage of US workers with degrees has gone up to 54%, up from 38% fifteen years ago.) People know about the company’s financial results or other issues far before an announcement even comes out. While many of these trends are obvious, many companies aren’t ready. Last year I talked to the CHRO of Boeing and he told me the problems were highlighted by employees years ago. They simply were not listening, and now they’re a company in crisis. And that leads to the topic of “employee activation.” In the old days senior leaders made decisions, workers carried out the orders. Ideas and strategies were “top-down.” Today much of the intelligence we need to grow our companies is sitting with front-line workers. We need to “activate employees” and listen to them directly. The worker in the store, plant, or front office who feels frustrated by some system or process is the person who should advise us what to do. The old idea of “management by walking around” must come back. (Our Org Design Superclass explains this in detail.) I don’t mean chaos, holacracy, or lack of controls. Successful companies have a clear mission, a series of strategic initiatives, and budgets to hold people accountable. But they empower everyone to be a leader, unleashing power from the bottom up. (Come to Irresistible and learn about how Marriott and Delta airlines exemplify this model.) The key is building what we call a “Dynamic Organization” – one which is flat, team-centric, connected, and accountable. Our research shows that only 7% of companies operate this way: most are still very hierarchical and slow to adapt. But change is coming, as companies like Delta, Marriott, Telstra, Unilever, Novartis, Seagate, and Bayer have found out. (This week the CEO of Bayer announced a radical transformation to a team-centric management model, dramatically reducing the number of “bosses.”) A dynamic organization does two things well. First, it adapts to change, sees new markets, and mobilizes quickly for change. But even more importantly, it empowers people, encourages internal mobility, and focuses on meritocracy, skills, and collaboration to thrive. (Read about Talent Density to learn more.) While these ideas are not new, urgency is critical. Employees demand growth, flexibility, and agency – and we can’t deliver it unless our reward and development systems change. Today more than 70% of US jobs are in the service sector: health care, retail, entertainment, and transportation. If we don’t empower people in these roles our products and services will suffer. Let me conclude with this: we just woke up in a totally new labor market. If you don’t focus on empowerment, growth, and employee activation, talent will just go elsewhere.

    推荐:The best HR & People Analytics articles of March 2024 024年3月,David Green带领我们深入了解了人力资源和人力分析的最新趋势。在欧洲和美国的几场关键活动中,他强调了人力分析在提升员工体验、AI在工作场所的角色、以及四天工作周趋势的增长中的转型作用。此外,Culture Amp对Orgnostic的收购和在Culture First Leaders Forum上的见解,突出了培养适宜的组织文化对于未来工作的战略重要性。Green的观点强调了HR需要采用数据驱动策略,以实现有效的劳动力规划、技能发展和组织增长。 2024 HR TRENDS AND PREDICTIONS KATE BRAVERY, JOANA SILVA, AND JENS PETERSON - Workforce 2.0: Unlocking human potential in a machine-augmented world – Mercer Global Talent Trends 2024 The world of work is in full metamorphosis, forever changed by the seismic shifts of the past few years and accelerated by the imminent human-machine teaming revolution. Just as organizations were settling into a new normal — with a focus on hybrid working, comprehensive health and well-being, digitalization, and upskilling — Generative AI (Gen AI) burst onto the scene. Those are the opening words from the Mercer Global Talent Trends 2024 report, which has recently been published. As ever, the study, which is based on a survey of more than 12,000 executives, HR leaders, employees, and investors, and is authored by Kate Bravery Joana Silva and Jens Peterson is an absolute must-read. The study highlights a disconnect between what HR is prioritising for the 2024 people agenda and the initiatives that executives believe will have the most impact on business growth (see FIG 1).  The study highlights four priorities that firms that outpace their competitors are focusing on: (1) Driving human-centric productivity. (2) Anchoring to trust and equity. (3) Boosting the corporate immune system. (4) Cultivating a digital-first culture. My tip to enjoy the study: find a couple of hours, make yourself a cup of tea and have a pen and paper to hand. FIG 1: HR priorities for the 2024 people agenda (Source: Mercer Global Talent Trends 2024) FIG 2: Drivers and drainers of employee productivity(Source: Mercer Global Talent Trends 2024) HYBRID, GENERATIVE AI AND THE FUTURE OF WORK BRIAN ELLIOTT - Return-to-Office Mandates: How to Lose Your Best Performers There is mounting evidence that mandates don’t improve financial performance. Instead, they damage employee engagement and increase attrition, especially among high-performing employees and particularly those with caregiving responsibilities. That’s according to Brian Elliott in his latest column in MIT Sloan Management Review, which highlights that the workers most likely to be turned off by return-to-office mandates are the company’s highest performers. Elliott highlights the link between factors such as pressure from investors and the CEO echo chamber with RTO pronouncements, as well as how only one in three executives believe that RTO has had even a slight impact on productivity. He recommends instead focusing on productivity rather than physical presence (see FIG 3) and how this can inspire a boom loop in engagement as opposed to a doom loop in trust. Finally, Elliott presents findings from the Future Forum and i4CP, highlighting the negative impact of RTO mandates, before offering guidance on how to build an outcomes-driven organisation: “The bottom line is that when trust is balanced with accountability, people and organizations will thrive.” FIG 3: Focus on Productivity, Not Physical Presence (Sources: Future Forum, Centre for Transformative Work Design, and Slack) AARON DE SMET, SANDRA DURTH, BRYAN HANCOCK, MARINO MUGAYAR-BALDOCCHI, AND ANGELIKA REICH - The human side of generative AI: Creating a path to productivity As teams start using gen AI to help free up their capacity, the middle manager’s job will evolve to managing both people and the use of this technology to enhance their output. A fascinating new study from McKinsey, which provides analysis on workers who are at the forefront of gen AI usage (which as FIG 4 shows is dominated by those in non-technical roles) and dives into the job factors and skills these workers say they need. The authors emphasise how firms can enhance productivity by crafting jobs that put people before tech – rather than the other way around. They conclude that companies that set a people-centric talent strategy will give themselves a competitive edge as more workers and jobs are affected by the changes gen AI brings. The article is rich with data and powerful visualisations – kudos to the authors: Aaron De Smet Sandra Durth Bryan Hancock Marino Mugayar-Baldocchi and Angelika Reich ).

LLMs are much more complicated to use effectively in an organizational context than is typically acknowledged, and they have yet to demonstrate that they can satisfactorily perform all of the tasks that knowledge workers execute in any given job. In their article, Peter Cappelli Prasanna Tambe and Valery Yakubovich look at the use and challenges of integrating Large Language Models (LLMs) in organisations, and present practical recommendations on how to work with LLMs successfully. The five challenges outlined in the article are: (1) The Knowledge Capture Problem. (2) The Output Verification Problem. (3) The Output Adjudication Problem. (4) The Cost-Benefit Problem. (5) The Job Transformation Problem – How will LLMs work with workers? Guidance includes developing and circulating standards for the use of LLMs in organisations, establishing a central office to produce important LLM output, and providing training to users. NICK BLOOM – Why WFH is a win-win-win | WFH research update (March 2024) Nick Bloom’s recent post on LinkedIn highlighting his research on why remote working is a win for firms (due to increased productivity of $20,000 a year for each remote day a week), employees, and society is extremely compelling. I also recommend reading Nick’s latest monthly data for March, which includes numerous insights such as that workers in their 50s and 60s are fully onsite more often than younger workers.

The Peer Meeting, which was attended by over 60 people analytics leaders and practitioners from more than 40 companies focused on two of the key findings from the Insight222 People Analytics Trends study for 2023: influencing senior stakeholders and measuring value. In her article, Naomi covers four topics: (1) how to implement a people analytics operating model that drives business outcomes (based on insights shared at the Peer Meeting by Rob Etheridge and Bec Aoude). (2) how to use AI to democratise insights from people data, using an example of work Andrew Elston has led at HSBC. (3) how Microsoft’s employee listening ecosystem (see FIG 7) helped the firm identify the moments that matter for in-person collaboration (insights from a session led by Dawn Klinghoffer), and (4) how to influence the board of directors, with insights from Justine Thompson.

He provides reasons why data storytelling can’t or shouldn’t be automated including for reasons of oversimplification, transparency and trust, and the fact that storytelling is essentially a human skill. Instead, Brent advocates that the path forward should be augmented data storytelling, and lays out a powerful illustration of how this would work (see FIG 8) The most powerful person in the world is the storyteller.

These act as a spur and inspiration to the field. Five are highlighted here. (1) If you don’t already follow Hallie Bregman, PhD on LinkedIn, you really should. Hallie regularly publishes thoughtful and insightful posts on topics important to the field. The two I’ve included here look at the pros and cons of situating people analytics in or outside HR. (2) Willis Jensen analyses whether AI will reduce the amount of data cleaning undertaken by people analysts given that much of this work involves judgement without hard, fast or consistent rules. (3) Cole Napper, who I’m looking forward to co-chairing People Analytics World with in London in April – also with Michael M. Moon, PhD – explains how many of the models we use in people analytics are borrowed from other disciplines. (4) Alexander S. Locher highlights some of the current trends in people analytics (see FIG 9) and offers guidance on how to harness value from your people data.

That’s the standout finding from a new global survey by Jo Iwasaki Karen Edelman and Dr Yasmine Chahed for Deloitte of 500 board members and C-suite executives in more than 50 countries on corporate governance and talent. The three top insights from the study were: (1) Many boards could be focusing more on talent-related issues. (2) Most organisations are just starting to think about their AI strategies. (3) Amplifying the talent experience will require boards to adopt a broader perspective. FIG 10: Workplace related topics that are top board priorities (Source: Deloitte) DAVE ULRICH - Pre-flections on GenAI and HR: Where to Go and How to Get There GenAI will help shape HR’s future by offering both information symmetry to synthesize and optimize the past and present and information asymmetry to create and guide the future. Dave Ulrich offers some initial reflections on what the journey could look like for applying GenAI to HR work, as well as some possible actions to drive progress (see example in FIG 11 for ‘Talent’). Dave also highlights four important considerations to manage the risk and realise the opportunity of GenAI in HR. (1) Who should champion, sponsor, participate in, and be accountable for this journey? (2) What individual skills and organisation capabilities will be required to make GenAI in HR happen? (3) What will be the regulatory and legal policies and risks associated with the effort? (4) What metrics of value-added GenAI for HR will be most useful and tracked? FIG 11: Examples of GenAI/HR initiatives in the Talent domain (Source: Dave Ulrich) HEIN KNAPPEN - How HR Adds to Enterprise Value Hein J.M. Knaapen, a former chief people officer himself, shares his perspectives on the crucial role HR plays in driving business value, and offers practical advice to CHROs on how to make this a reality. Hein highlights the four people priorities that connect to value: (1) Performance management, (2) Succession management, (3) Leadership development, and (4) Capability building, providing guidance on each. Value creation should be the focus. Nothing else. And only four people priorities connect to value: performance management, succession management, leadership development and capability building. WORKFORCE PLANNING, ORG DESIGN, AND SKILLS-BASED ORGANISATIONS STEFAN HIERL - Identifying the AI Potential in Your Organization: A Strategic Approach Leveraging Generative AI to assess the AI Potential in a workforce helps businesses go beyond just talking about how AI might change jobs. As Stefan Hierl astutely observes in his excellent article, in the rush to jump on the AI bandwagon, many companies fall into the trap of overlooking a critical preliminary step: conducting a systematic evaluation of where AI can deliver transformative value. In his article, Stefan outlines a five-step approach to quantify the potential of AI to support organisations identify opportunities for automating and augmenting work activities. The five steps (see FIG 12), which Stefan outlines in detail are: (1) Decomposing roles by breaking down each role into its main activities and respective time shares. (2) AI potential assessment – estimating the potential of AI at the activity level. (3) Expert validation – cross-verifying the generative AI findings with domain experts. (4) Identify high-value areas – creating an overview where AI can significantly enhance workforce productivity (see example in FIG 13). (5) Use case development – exploring specific AI applications to capitalise on identified potential.

This is one of the standout findings from a new study by Matt Sigelman and Alex Martin of The Burning Glass Institute and Joseph Fuller from Harvard Business School. Their analysis reveals three categories of firms, who have publicly stated they have removed degree requirements in hiring, based on their actual hiring outcomes: (1) Skills-based hiring leaders (e.g. Cigna) – who have increased their share of non-degree hires in the roles analysed by nearly 20%. (2) In name only (e.g. Bank of America) – 45% of firms studied have made the shift in name only with no meaningful difference in actual skills-based hiring. (3) Backsliders e.g. Uber) – 20% of the firms analysed had made short-term gains by dropping degree requirements, but the change doesn’t stick. The report also highlights the roles best positioned for skills-based hiring (see FIG 14). FIG 14: The roles best positioned for skills-based hiring (Source: Sigelman et al) JORDAN PETTMAN - How to Accelerate the Impact of Strategic Workforce Planning (SWP) through the Organisation Strategy Ecosystem Jordan Pettman, one of my colleagues at Insight222, knows a thing or two about workforce planning. In his recent article for myHRfuture, Jordan explores how strategic design can be brought to life through an integrated ecosystem (see FIG 15) encompassing four components: (1) Organisation strategy, (2) Operating model, (3) Organisation design and strategic workforce planning, and (4) Organisation effectiveness. FIG 15: The Organisation Strategy Ecosystem (Source: Jordan Pettman, Insight222) EMPLOYEE LISTENING, EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE, AND EMPLOYEE WELLBEING JACQUELINE BRASSEY, LARS HARTENSTEIN, BARBARA JEFFERY, AND PATRICK SIMON – Working nine to thrive One of the few positives to emerge through and since the pandemic has been a stronger focus on employee health and wellbeing. According to new research by Jacqui Brassey, PhD, MA, MAfN (née Schouten) Lars Hartenstein Barbara Jeffery and Dr. Patrick Simon, on behalf of the McKinsey Health Institute, improving employee health and wellbeing doesn’t just benefit workers and organisations, it could generate between $3.7 to $11.7 trillion in global economic value (see FIG 16). Their article focuses on six drivers of health that employers can influence - social interaction, mindsets and beliefs, productive activity, stress, economic security, and sleep – and provides guidance on how organisations can move the dial on each.

Aligning learning programs to business goals emerges as the top L&D focus area for 2024 in LinkedIn Learning’s annual report on the L&D field, which is based on analysis of LinkedIn behavioural data and focus interviews with L&D professionals around the globe. The report is structured into three chapters: (1) The State of L&D (the study finds that a strong learning culture derives retention, mobility, and promotion. – see FIG 17), (2) Skills agility (the study finds that only 33% of organisations have internal mobility programs), and (3) How L&D succeeds) with priorities #1 and #2 being to lean into analytics and build the right metrics – see FIG 18). The report features contributions from the likes of: Amanda Nolen (who asks: “What if Chief Learning Officers become Chief Skills Officers”), Chris Louie Geraldine Murphy Terri Horton, EdD, MBA, MA, SHRM-CP, PHR Alexandra Halem Ekpedeme "Pamay" M.

In their article for MIT Sloan Management Review, Ayse Karaevli and Serden Ozcan present findings from their interviews with board directors, CEOs, CFOs, and employee representatives to understand how to manage conflict and engage workers. From their analysis, Ayse and Serden identified three strategies effective leaders use to include employees (see FIG 19): (1) Identify mutual goals and interests, (2) Foster inclusive decision processes, and (3) Give employees strategic responsibilities. The article then describes each of these in detail with examples from the likes of ThyssenKrupp, Allianz, Siemens, and Bayer before highlighting the importance of employee advisory groups, engagement with board members and the role of committees and task forces to imbue governance and participation.

Despite the anti-immigration policies of many current European governments (that includes you, Rishi Sunak), stagnant economies, tight labour markets, and shrinking working populations mean that immigration is key to unlocking economic growth. In their superb analysis for McKinsey, Sundiatu Dixon-Fyle Massimo Giordano Tania Zulu Holt Tunde Olanrewaju Dara Olufon and Sandra Sancier-Sultan provide data insights on what they classify as ethnocultural minorities in Europe, and their (mostly challenging) experiences. The authors also provide guidance for companies on ethnocultural minority employee inclusion across five dimensions (see FIG 20).

RYAN HAMMOND, COLE NAPPER AND SCOTT HINES - Turnover Prediction, ML Ethics, & The HiQ Story – Ryan Hammond shares the epic story of HiQ Labs with Directionally Correct hosts Cole Napper and Scott Hines, PhD, as well as insights from his practitioner and academic backgrounds including how to ethically use internal and external data to do turnover prediction. VIDEO OF THE MONTH TANUJ KAPILASHRAMI, MICHAEL FRACCARO, TAMLA OATES-FARNEY, AND DAVID GREEN – CHRO Panel: Delivering against the transformation imperative March’s Video of the Month proved to be a highlight for me as it features me moderating the CHRO Panel at the recent Gloat Live event in New York. The panel was comprised of Tanuj Kapilashrami Michael Fraccaro and Tamla Oates-Forney, and featured discussion on the increasingly pivotal role of the CHRO in business transformation, lessons learnt and successes from transitioning to a skills-based organisation, and how technology can enable a culture of inclusivity and opportunity. BOOKS OF THE MONTH With a lot of travelling back and forth from the US in March, I found time to dig into two new books, which I recommend to readers of this newsletter: MARC SOKOL AND BEVERLY TARULLI – Strategic Workforce Planning: Best Practices and Emerging Directions Strategic workforce planning – the process of looking forward, assessing how to compete and win in your chosen market or business arena, and linking those insights to your existing and potential future workforce – is core to any institution that aspires to sustain itself over time. Those are the opening words of Marc Sokol and Beverly Tarulli, Ph.D., the editors of an indispensable new volume of SIOP’s Professional Practice Series. It provides an overview of SWP, covering best practices, methodologies and new directions in the field as well as featuring contributions and case studies from a stellar list of contributors. These include: Sheri Feinzig Alexis Fink Adam Gibson Brian Heger Adam McKinnon, PhD. Kanella Salapatas and Dave Ulrich. Grab yourself a copy! SALVATORE V. FALLETTA – Creepy Analytics: Avoid Crossing the Line and Establish Ethical HR Analytics for Smarter Workforce Decisions In Creepy Analytics, Dr. Salvatore Falletta provides a thoughtful approach to HR Analytics that is both evidence-based and ethical – ensuring that organisations get the insights they need while respecting employee privacy. The book is built around the author’s seven-step HR Analytics Cycle (see FIG 22) and is well-researched. Thanks to Salvatore too for referencing Excellence in People Analytics several times, particularly in relation to the guidance Jonathan Ferrar and I offer around governance and the development of an ethics charter.

    应对心理健康危机:42%的公司计划推出新的员工福利 根据The Conference Board的最新报告,尽管HR领导们对劳动力市场的乐观程度略有上升,但员工保留和参与度的预期与去年相比有所下降,显示出劳动力短缺的持续问题。报告揭示,随着员工心理健康问题的加剧,42%的公司计划今年提供新的福祉福利。企业承认对员工福祉负有责任,并在增加对健康项目的关注和支出方面取得了显著进展。报告强调,全面考虑员工福祉不仅可以提高员工参与度和生产力,还能保留人才。  Tackling the Mental Health Crisis: 42% of Companies Plan to Offer New Employee Well-Being Benefits NEW YORK, March 22, 2024 -- Corporate America's HR leaders continue to be more optimistic than pessimistic about the state of the workforce. The Conference Board CHRO Confidence Index ticked up to 54 in Q1, from 53 last quarter. (A reading of more than 50 points reflects more positive than negative responses.) While retention and engagement expectations improved from last quarter, the survey reveals they are down compared to this time last year, signaling ongoing concerns about labor shortages. Hiring expectations remained stable. The survey also reveals that businesses are stepping up as mental health concerns continue taking a toll on workers throughout the nation: 42% of surveyed companies plan to offer new well-being benefits this year. Indeed, 36% say businesses are responsible for the well-being of their employees, with another 62% saying they are somewhat responsible. As a result, they are ramping up their focus on employee wellness: In addition to those offering new well-being benefits, a quarter plan to increase spending on well-being initiatives. "Taking a holistic view of worker well-being can not only improve employee engagement and productivity but also retain your talent—a top focus of both CEOs and CHROs this year," said Diana Scott, Leader of The Conference Board US Human Capital Center. The Index, conducted quarterly, was launched in Q1 2023 and is comprised of three components—hiring, retention, and engagement—as well as special questions included in each survey. Nearly 150 CHROs participated in the Q1 survey, which included additional questions on employee well-being. Key findings include: Hiring The CHRO Confidence Index: Hiring component remained the same as both last quarter and YoY, at 55. CHROs' workforce expansion plans remained stable in Q1, with fewer CHROs expecting to increase or decrease hiring in the next six months: 36% of CHROs expect to increase their hiring over the next six months—down from 44% in Q4. 13% expect to decrease their hiring over the next six months—down from 19% in Q4. Retention The CHRO Confidence Index: Retention component rose to 53 in Q1 2024 from 51 in Q4 2023. But retention expectations are down YoY from 57 in Q1 2023. CHRO expectations regarding employee retention ticked up slightly in Q1: 29% of CHROs expect their employee retention levels to improve over the next six months—up slightly from 28% in Q4. 19% of CHROs expect employee retention to decrease over the next six months, down from 22% in Q4. Engagement The CHRO Confidence Index: Engagement component rose to 54 in Q1 2024 from 52 in Q4 2023. But engagement expectations are down YoY from 58 in Q1 2023. Fewer CHROs expect declines in employee engagement in Q1: 35% expect engagement levels to increase—down slightly from 37% in Q4. 20% expect engagement levels to decrease—down significantly from 31% in Q4. Special Questions for Q4: Employee Well-Being For Q1 2024, the Index also surveyed CHROs on employee well-being. CHROs overwhelmingly agree that organizations share responsibility for their employees' well-being. 62% said organizations are somewhat responsible. 36% said organizations are responsible. Only 2% said organizations are not responsible for employee well-being. A quarter of CHROs increased spending on employee well-being in 2024. 26% said their well-being budget increased for FY2024. 69% said it remained the same. Only 5% decreased spending on well-being. Nearly half of CHROs plan to offer new well-being benefits, despite most keeping spending the same. 42% plan to offer new benefits this year. 39% do not plan to offer new benefits. 19% are discussing offering new benefits. Mental and physical health are the top priorities for new well-being initiatives. Of those offering new benefits: 20% are offering mental health initiatives. 15% are offering physical health and fitness initiatives. 12% are offering financial well-being initiatives. 10% are offering work-life balance initiatives.

    Valoir 报告显示 HR 尚未准备好迎接 AI,你呢? 研究显示,人力资源管理领导者面临的主要问题包括缺少 AI 相关的专业知识以及面临的风险和合规性问题。 弗吉尼亚州阿灵顿--Valoir 发布的一项全球新报告显示,尽管 AI 驱动的自动化似乎无法避免,但人力资源部门似乎并未做好准备。这项涵盖超过150位人力资源执行官的调查揭示了利用 AI 的巨大机会,但同时也显示出在制定政策、实施实践和进行培训方面普遍存在不足,以便安全有效地将 AI 技术应用于人力资源管理。 “虽然许多机构开始采用生成式 AI,但很少有组织建立必要的政策、准则和保障措施。作为员工数据的保护者和公司政策的制定者,人力资源领导者需要在 AI 的政策和培训方面走在前列,不仅为自己的团队,也为广大员工群体做好准备。” 以下内容需要特别注意: “AI 正在快速融入人力资源管理领域,特别是在招聘、人才发展和劳动力管理等方面。然而,引入 AI 也伴随着诸如数据泄露、误解、偏见和不当内容等风险,”Valoir 的首席执行官 Rebecca Wettemann 表示。“面对这些挑战并采取措施减少风险的人力资源部门,可以显著提升其从 AI 中获得的益处。” 人力资源的自动化与战略转型潜力 报告指出,有35%的人力资源部门员工的日常工作非常适合自动化处理。在所有人力资源管理活动中,招聘环节最有潜力应用 AI 技术,并且已成为采纳率最高的领域,近四分之一的组织已经开始利用 AI 支持的招聘流程。人才发展、劳动力管理以及培训和发展同样被视为 AI 自动化的关键领域。 生成式 AI 正在加速人力资源部门的生产力提升及风险增加 尽管到2023年中旬,超过三分之四的人力资源领域工作者已经尝试使用过某种形式的生成式 AI,但仅有16%的组织制定了关于使用生成式 AI 的具体政策。而且,真正关于其伦理使用的政策数量更是寥寥无几。人力资源领导者认为,缺乏 AI 相关技能和专业知识是采纳 AI 的最大障碍,但只有14%的组织制定了有效的 AI 使用培训政策。这些政策对于确保所有员工都能充分利用 AI 带来的好处并最小化风险是至关重要的。 “尽管生成式 AI 正被广泛采纳,但几乎没有哪些组织建立了必要的政策、准则和保护措施。作为员工数据的守护者和公司政策的制定者,人力资源领导者必须在 AI 政策和培训方面先行一步,这不仅是为了他们自己的团队,也是为了整个员工群体的利益,”Wettemann 表示。 报告的关键知识点: Integration Challenges: HR faces challenges in managing AI use due to lack of policies, practices, and training. Early Adoption vs. Preparedness: While HR has been an early adopter of AI, most organizations still lack the proper frameworks for safe and effective AI adoption. Rapid Product Release: Post-Chat GPT announcement, HR software vendors have rapidly released generative AI products with varying capabilities. AI’s Double-Edged Sword: AI offers great benefits but also poses risks of "accidents" due to immature technology, inadequate policies, and lack of training. AI Experimentation and Automation Opportunity: Over three-quarters of HR workers have experimented with generative AI. 35% of HR tasks could potentially be automated by AI. Current AI Utilization: The main opportunities for HR benefits from AI are in recruiting, learning and development, and talent management, with recruiting leading in AI adoption. Adoption Barriers: Main hurdles include lack of AI expertise (28%), fear of compliance and risk (23%), and lack of resources (21%). Policy and Training Deficiencies: Only 16% of organizations have policies on generative AI use, and less than 16% have training policies for AI usage. Risk Areas in AI: Data compromises, AI hallucinations, bias and toxicity, and recommendation bias are identified as primary risks. Future Plans for AI: Over 50% of organizations plan to apply AI in recruiting, talent management, and training within the next 24 months. Least Likely AI Adoption: Benefits management has the lowest likelihood of current or future AI adoption due to data sensitivity concerns. AI Skills and Expertise: The significant gap in AI skills and expertise impacts the adoption and effective use of AI in HR. HR’s Role in AI Adoption: HR needs to develop policies, provide training, and ensure ethical AI use aligning with organizational principles. Recommendations for HR: Suggestions include experimenting with generative AI, developing ethical AI usage policies, creating role-specific AI training, and identifying employee groups at risk from AI automation.
