Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer limited to science fiction movies. It is quietly revolutionizing the way businesses manage their most valuable asset: their employees. If you work in human resources or are simply curious about the future of work, you should look into how artificial intelligence is changing the game!

Putting the “Personal” Back in Personnel

Ever wished your business knew exactly what you needed to flourish at work? That is happening thanks to artificial intelligence. It’s like having an all-in-one shopper and personal career coach. From your development plan to your training, artificial intelligence can customize everything to increase your job satisfaction and output. It’s a win-win for you and your employer.

Supercharging Your Job Hunt (and Making HR’s Lives Easier)

Job hunting can feel like finding a needle in a haystack. But AI is acting like a magnet, pulling the right candidates and companies together. It sifts through mountains of resumes in seconds, matching skills, experience, and even company culture fit. This means faster hiring for companies and better job opportunities for you.

In fact, AI is so powerful in this area that a recent McKinsey & Company study found that talent acquisition, recruiting, and onboarding account for roughly 20% of the total value potential of generative AI in HR.

And it’s not just about matching; it’s about crafting a compelling narrative. Companies are already using artificial intelligence for content creation, McKinsey notes, producing everything from job ads catered to particular skill sets to customized correspondence with candidates. One giant in the automotive industry even has an AI-powered avatar that comments on every application.

Making HR Decisions Smarter (Not Harder)

AI is more than just a number cruncher; it is a strategic advisor. It delves deeply into data to uncover trends and patterns that you may have missed. Are employees experiencing burnout? Is there a skills gap in a specific department? AI detects it, providing HR with the information they need to take action and keep the company running smoothly.

One way AI accomplishes this is through concision, which involves summarizing and extracting insights from massive amounts of unstructured data. For example, a European insurance company uses AI to combine performance reviews and 360-degree feedback, resulting in actionable recommendations and faster HR processes.

More Time for the Human Touch

Nobody entered HR to continuously push papers all day. Artificial Intelligence is aware of that. It’s handling those labor-intensive chores including payroll management and interview scheduling. This frees HR teams to concentrate on the truly important factors: your career development, well-being, and creating a workplace you love.

But AI’s role in communication goes beyond automation. It’s fostering employee engagement through direct communication and exchange with AI-based chatbots. These chatbots can access a company’s entire HR knowledge base, guiding employees through personalized journeys and answering questions in real time. A global software company, for instance, uses an AI chatbot to offer tailored learning recommendations to employees based on their skill gaps. This focus on continuous learning and development, supported by AI, makes up another 12% of AI’s value potential in HR, according to McKinsey.

Your Well-Being Matters (and AI Can Help)

Imagine if your company could predict when you’re heading for burnout before it happens. AI is getting pretty good at that. By analyzing data from surveys and your performance, it can raise a flag early on. This gives HR the chance to step in with support, whether it’s adjusting your workload or offering resources to help you de-stress.

AI’s coding capabilities enable this type of analysis, which involves interpreting data and generating programming code to support people analytics. Companies are using AI to sift through massive HR datasets, identifying patterns and correlations that would otherwise be invisible to the human eye. For example, a pharmaceutical company in Europe uses an AI “co-pilot” to analyze HR data and forecast employee attrition rates. According to McKinsey, AI-based organizational analysis and planning account for 15% of its potential value in human resources.
