1. Your voice as a talent leader is critical as the AI conversation shifts from technology to talent. In fact, 9 out of 10 of HR professionals globally say that their role has become more strategic in the last year. AI has opened a door for talent leaders to engage in joint planning with tech leaders, where both talent and tech are considered equally important to the success of an organisation.

  2. Your potential with AI is unprecedented — AI is a tool that will not only save you a lot of time, but transform how we all think about productivity. AI can help with time-consuming and challenging tasks HR professionals do to find qualified candidates, like conducting searches, and sending emails and follow-up messages. Today, 74 per cent of recruiters on LinkedIn who are using our AI-assisted messages say it saves them valuable time.

  3. You are now  educators and upskilling your workforce and putting people skills at the center of their company’s success will be critical — and not just around AI tools but also when it comes to people-to-people collaboration.

  4. Your talent brand matters more than ever. Hiring, growing, retaining top talent will be critical for your business as you adapt into the age of AI. That’s true for the AI specific roles — like Head of AI — that are emerging, but that’s also true for top talent of all kinds, given that all functions are adapting right now and you need the best people in your key roles to stay ahead and stay competitive.
