Bloomberg BNA reports that employees and HR leaders have seeming different outlooks when considering the future of work. While workers are optimistic about the potential of new technologies, talent leaders have concerns about how they will effectively integrate automation and artificial intelligence (AI) into the workplace.
Rebecca Henderson, CEO of Randstad Sourceright, believes that all industries are affected by this rapid technological change. “No one knows what the jobs of the future will be or how to prepare employees,” she explains. “Organizations might need to focus more on skills and experience than formal education.”
Alan Stukalsky, chief digital officer of Randstad also weighs in, adding that automation is creating an incentive for employees to learn new skills. “It’s the continuous learning, and in particular, the ability to gain more insight into the company that millennials are looking for,” he says.
