The Role of Artificial Intelligence in The Workforce

Artificial intelligence (AI) has been transforming various industries, including healthcare, finance, and manufacturing, and the workforce is no exception.

Not only does it disrupt the HR function, but it is becoming more common in traditionally human-driven processes.

To discuss this topic, Sommer and I are joined by a special guest, Alexandra Levit. She is a workforce futurist, which means somebody who looks at business and society and tries to make a determination about what has the greatest potential to cause disruption in the workforce.

One of the areas AI will transform the workforce is Talent Intelligence. AI Technology expands the opportunity for people to have more meaningful careers than we ever thought possible to a point where we can ascertain the roles that people can do based on what they've done in the past.

She has released a book, Deep Talent: How to Transform Your Organization and Empower Your Employees Through AI, a must-read for anyone looking to understand how AI platforms will impact the workforce in the coming years.

The book provides strategies and approaches that any business leader can adopt to reinvigorate their workforce.

In the Consultant corner, we tackle the topic of reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities in the workspace.

Reasonable accommodations for employees are essential to ensure that employees with disabilities are not discriminated against and are productive.

Employers should engage in an interactive process with employees to determine what accommodations are necessary and reasonable. By providing reasonable accommodations, employers can create an inclusive work environment, benefit from higher productivity from employees, and comply with the law.  

One reservation that small businesses have with providing reasonable accommodations is the fear of incurring additional expenses, but it's not the case.

Tune in as we go through some simple accommodations that don't cost anything for people with ADHD that you can implement.
