Debriefing HR Technology 2023: AI's Impact on HR

One of the conference's standout moments was the keynote address by industry thought leader, Josh Bersin. He enlightened the audience about how AI is set to supercharge various facets of HR. His insights focused on the remarkable potential of AI in talent acquisition. In a time when organizations are striving to control costs, whether through staff attrition, technology consolidation, or both, AI-driven automation is significantly reducing the effort required to manage the often-laborious administration of recruiting. Josh's keynote left us with a profound understanding of the transformative power of AI in HR. 
On day three, author and visionary Marcus Buckingham took the stage, offering a different perspective. He passionately conveyed that the key to unlocking the most potent force in business—people—lies in love, not technology. Buckingham eloquently stated, "You can deploy AI intelligently, you can deploy AI strategically, you can hopefully deploy AI harmlessly. But you can't deploy it lovingly. Not ever." His passionate call to look beyond technology and foster an environment that taps into the essence of human potential, rather than relying solely on technology and AI, resonated deeply with the audience. 
In this conference, AI was front and center, with over 400 sessions dedicated to its discussion. It was clear that AI is not merely a fleeting trend; HR leaders are earnestly embracing it as they strive to learn and implement rapidly. 
An exceptional moment during the conference was when Josh Bersin spent time at our booth testing our AI assistant in Inspire. He even created an OKR to enhance our research sales, and his feedback was nothing short of extraordinary.
