HR, as a profession, is too obsessed with predicting the future at the expense of acting now especially when it comes to investing in new technology. The arrival of a new year is the perfect time for organisations to take stock, and look at what they can do better in 2020. Whilst it can be argued that HR technology doesn’t move quickly enough to satisfy the endless stream of conferences our profession indulges in, the ‘future of work’ narrative also gives the wrongful impression that tomorrow never comes.

Article | August 10, 2020

There are some powerful use cases for data science in HR, whether that’s chatbots delivering real-time answers to important analytical questions, or the huge cost savings that can come from reducing employee churn. So why isn’t everyone doing all this already?

Some companies want others to test the water before they jump in, but that isn’t going to happen here. Although large firms are making big investments here, the work is valuable intellectual property, which means the chances of details being shared are slim. Ask yourself: Will I lead the way?
