When Machines and Human Resources Intelligence Meet, It Can Be a Beautiful Thing

The robots are on the march, and human labor is in retreat. Or is it?

The anxiety over AI, and technology in general is understandable given the advancements in artificial intelligence, which can now handle tasks like writing HR policies, candidate screening, and autonomous driving to get you safely to work.

While the idea of a significant leap in automation aligns with the feeling of unprecedented innovation, evidence supporting such drastic changes, that some of last year’s eyebrow-raising predictions may have led us to believe, is lacking.

The 2024 HRO Today Association Conference and Awards Program, “HR ROBOPOCALYPSE 2024” will set the record straight about Tech and HR, as we debunk the myths, delve into the tech reality, and share insights about tech application and learn tips to adopt the strategies best suited for your organization from the HR leaders (not the robots), who are connecting technology to real business results.

Join the “HR ROBOPOCALYPSE 2024” conversation and our annual awards program finalists, in categories recognizing tech and innovation, leadership and collaboration and more, as we announce this year’s winners and share the success bullets that helped them get there, in an online virtual event on Friday, December 6, 11:00AM ET – 1:30PM ET.
