AI can identify the skills of the future and deploying the right talent development resources. Following are high-value use cases of AI that is providing meaningful results to HR teams.

• Personalization

AI can harness data from various sources to provide the right support to the right person at the right time. It is not just about pushing online courses to the employees but includes a full range of potential support tactics, including training, coaching, and performance support.

• Virtual Assistant

For HR department AI-supported virtual assistants usually mean chatbots put in place for customer contact centers or help-desk-related process flows. This is one of the most common use cases for AI in HR today. Rather than searching for reference content with keywords, employees are engaged in human-like conversations to find specific answers to their queries more quickly.

• Impact Analysis

The HR department is under constant pressure to justify its value and prove that it has a significant impact on business results. Similar to the way marketing connects ads to buying decisions, AI can be applied to show precisely how HR solutions are impacting targeted business goals. This impact analysis helps in improvement of the areas where it is needed.
