However, a nagging question remains — the impact of artificial intelligence in HR.

  • Gartner report suggests that enterprise adoption of AI has grown 270% over the past four years,
  • According to a report by CEB Corporate Leadership Council only 12% of HR organizations currently used predictive analytics for talent decision making. 49% of organizations plan to do so shortly.
  • Merely 5% of organizations feel they are effective at tracking and using talent analytics.

“To AI or not to AI” — a perception that is entirely dependent on the organization. But hey, some organizations are already on the bandwagon. Don’t you think you might need to take a second glance?

Using conversational AI, chatbots are already paving way for HR professionals by depicting a high-level technology landscape solution.

Day-to-day decisions like vacation requests, team training, determining your mood, and the hiring process can now be taken easily through cognitive engines.

Fascinating, isn’t it? Applicants and recruiters will have a custom experience tailored to their unique requirements while seeking jobs. For example, choosing the right fit and exploring development opportunities.

Verato’s AI platform has been designed in a manner where it can track when an employee plans to leave or take an exit from the company. Activities like emails, keystrokes, and internet browsing are tracked and stored for a month. This information is then analyzed through an AI system that analyzes the data with the normal pattern in the organization. Based on such knowledge, it flags outliers sending a report to the employer predicting that the employee might be thinking of exiting the company.

The transition won’t be easy but they just need to prove they will get there.
