In a sign of our times, a recent survey found CEOs so bullish on artificial intelligence that nearly half believe their jobs should be replaced by it. A similar share expected half the skills of their workforce to be irrelevant by 2025.

We’ll see if that turns out to be true. But I’m confident that the core human skills we people professionals depend on to assess candidates—things like intuition, emotional intelligence, and judgment—will always be relevant to our work. I also believe that AI will not only not replace our teams, it will actually make them more productive, more engaged, and better at identifying strong job candidates.

AI is shaking up the status quo across all business functions, and people management is no exception. Our people team is exploring how it can improve our ability to attract, recruit, hire, and even retain employees. But leveraging AI is only half the challenge: combining it with a “people-first” culture will provide the ultimate boost, enabling people teams to contribute to more effective organizations.
