Artificial Intelligence In The Workplace: How AI Is Transforming Your Employee Experience
It can be unnerving to think that AI is driving your career path. Just as Bernard Marr reports in Forbes that is often the case. So, it might block you from getting that job you need but it also might prevent you from making a bad choice. The more we coexist with artificial intelligence we will need to realize that, just like humans, the decisions it makes can have either a positive or negative outcomes on our lives. It’s just more difficult to get mad at a computer.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is quickly changing just about every aspect of how we live our lives, and our working lives certainly aren’t exempt from this.
Soon, even those of us who don’t happen to work for technology companies (although as every company moves towards becoming a tech company, that will be increasingly few of us) will find AI-enabled machines increasingly present as we go about our day-to-day activities.
From how we are recruited and on-boarded to how we go about on-the-job training, personal development and eventually passing on our skills and experience to those who follow in our footsteps, AI technology will play an increasingly prominent role.
Here’s an overview of some of the recent advances made in businesses that are currently on the cutting-edge of the AI revolution, and are likely to be increasingly adopted by others seeking to capitalize on the arrival of smart machines.
Recruitment and onboarding
Before we even set foot in a new workplace, it could soon be a fact that AI-enabled machines have played their part in ensuring we’re the right person for the job.
AI pre-screening of candidates before inviting the most suitable in for interviews is an increasingly common practice at large companies that make thousands of hires each year, and sometimes attract millions of applicants.
Pymetrics is one provider of tools for this purpose. It enables candidates to sit a video interview in their own home, sometimes on a different continent to the organization they are applying to work for. After answering a series of standard questions, their answers – as well as their facial expressions and body language – are analyzed to determine whether or not they would be a good fit for the role.
