EICN Shanghai – Breakfast Event: AI at Work

Since its first adoption, AI technology has significantly transformed workplace and talent management by enhancing efficiency, accuracy, and decision-making. In recruitment, AI tools reduce recruitment costs by up to 50%; AI facilitates continuous performance feedback, improving productivity by 13%, and ensures objective evaluations; automating routine tasks saves HR departments up to 40% of their time, and AI-driven analytics improve decision-making, with 72% of executives seeing AI as a business advantage. Moreover, in learning and development, adaptive programs have proven to enhance outcomes and reduce training costs, demonstrating AI’s broad impact on HR efficiency and employee experience. Yet, potential risks associated with privacy protection, transparency, reliability and accuracy, as well as legal and ethical issues remain major concerns of HRBPs for more extensive implementation of AI tools.

Join us for an in-depth conversation with industry experts and business leaders as we explore the transformative impact of AI technology on workplace and talent management across various HR functions.
