Human Resources – Is it Really Human? Really?

automating repetitive tasks is a smart way to go, but automating a job meant for humans doesn’t seem like the best idea. Human resource employees and managers need to be better at what they do instead of endlessly chasing the thing that is supposed to fix the problems. Humans are capable of taking on the human challenges of being human in human resources. Robots are a long way from taking on human jobs, and people don’t want to spend their entire day chasing robots around.

Key Takeaways:

  • AI is a bright, shiny distraction from the more fundamental issues within HR, to include learning how to manage real people more effectively.
  • There are already many tools available to save HR managers’ time, but they don’t solve problems with management and employee engagement.
  • So far, AI has come with outlandish promises but a rather small and mixed body of proof as to whether it can keep them.

“Just as we get the humans back into Human Resources, we’re spending time and treasure to figure out how to make those humans artificial.”
