AI and HR Employee Burnout

Among working professionals, HR leaders report some of the highest levels of burnout, including 70% who feel they are working “beyond capacity” and 61% “working without enough staff.” In order to address these issues, some are turning to artificial intelligence and other technologies to find efficiencies—e.g., eliminating “manual, repetitive administrative tasks.” While much of the technology may be promising, early adopters also take on a certain level of risk—especially if systems become automated without appropriate testing and supervision.

Business Takeaway: While the adoption of AI technology is controversial in many settings, various experts predict beneficial effects in the world of HR. More specifically, short-term predictions suggest that AI will “augment but not replace the work of HR professionals.” How is AI affecting your industry?
