Many in HR exhibit an overly optimistic "this is fine" attitude about AI. But the reality is, AI is already transforming HR workflows and reducing headcounts.
In this episode, we discuss why passive optimism could doom the future of work. Just as past economic shifts brought immense social upheaval, the rise of AI promises to radically reshape the workforce. The difference is, these AI shifts are happening at breakneck speed compared to history.
This urgency requires proactive governance to navigate AI's impact on jobs. We can't casually expect that things will work out fine without deliberate effort to shape a positive future.
Drawing on historical lessons, we explore practical ways HR professionals can lean in to steer towards an ethical, humane AI-powered world of work. The time is now to awaken from passive optimism and guide the way forward.
