I presented themes from my book Silicon Collar at the IHRIM conference in Toronto a couple of weeks ago.
Automation technologies (robotics, AI, drones, autonomous vehicles, wearables, etc.) are changing the nature of work in every industry. The book looked at over 50 settings (accounting, banking, basketball, logistics, manufacturing etc.). It is having a profound impact on employer/employee relationships and a major opportunity and challenge for HCM executives as we move into a hybrid world of talent - some human, some automated. It’s also a major opportunity for HCM leadership to manage fears in workforces as many analysts and academics overhype fears of massive job losses from such machines.
I hope you benefit from the slides I used during the talk.
