This year, we will examine the massive uptick in the rise of people analytics which has opened up new opportunities for dedicated leadership in the HR analytics field. Many companies and their executive search partners are using workforce insights to narrow the data capability gap, something that is now fundamentally changing the way companies manage human resources and hire people.
Our report will also take an in-depth look at how HR and talent acquisition practitioners are already beginning to apply Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning and bots into their talent acquisition strategies. Among HR professionals and executive search consultants, the adoption of AI is at a very early stage. But make no mistake, AI and automated technologies are about to transform the search for people. Fifteen percent of HR leaders polled from 40 countries said AI and automation are already impacting their workplace plans. Another 40 percent said they expect AI and automation to affect their plans within two to five years. Learn how they utilize data analytics and artificial intelligence tools, emphasize skills over formal education to increase diversity, and target passive candidates through hyper-personalization.
