The future of HR in the technology sector

The future of HR in the technology sector

 The debate about whether artificial intelligence (AI) will wipe out or generate jobs shows no sign of winding down.


The latest KPMG report - 'The future of HR in the technology sector' - revealed that less than half of HR leaders in tech industries believe technology will introduce more roles than it will take away.


Perhaps even more striking is the fact that only 42% of tech business CEOs intend to upskill most of their workforce by 2022. This is despite the argument from many who have a horse in this race that employees will need to develop new skills to comfortably operate in an AI environment.


KPMG's findings led the organisation to suggest that HR leaders and tech CEOs train their staff and refine their roles, reshape HR's value to their company, and view colleagues as customers in an increasingly global, digital and agile workplace.


It also recommended getting on nodding terms with new technologies, such is the speed with which firms are evolving, whilst pointing out that HR leaders are in the perfect position to lead the conversation on workplace evolution and transformation.


The big challenge, KPMG determined, will be successfully integrating human labour with AI.


The general feeling is that time is of the essence. While almost 70% of tech company HR executives acknowledge the need for workforce transformation, only 50% have a plan in place.


The mindset of some will need to change as long as roles continue to become automated, meaning firms will have little option but to get their teams ready for the AI-related work that will cross their desks
