Following in the growing footsteps of artificial intelligence (AI) and all it can accomplish, IBM has recently announced the debut of IBM Talent & Transformation to offer AI skills training.
While CEOs and employees agree that AI will transform the workplace, recent IBM studies reveal that few feel prepared to take advantage of AI's potential:
In the next three years, as many as 120 million workers in the world's 10 largest economies may need to be retrained or reskilled as a result of AI and intelligent automation, according to new research from IBM.
"As organizations grapple with the dual demands of undertaking digital transformation and reinventing their businesses and processes through the application of new technologies such as AI, automation and blockchain, the biggest barrier to progress will lie in accessing the right talent and skills," said Mark Foster, senior vice president, IBM Global Business Services. "IBM believes that building a workforce to compete in the era of AI is as much about the culture and specialized expertise as it is about technology."
With the help of IBM Talent & Transformation, AI can be ushered into organizations with impact and responsibility and also become the catalyst for HR organizations to transform from service function to growth engine, helping companies to attract and retain a diverse and highly skilled workforce that drives and evolves with the future of their business.
IBM's new services, AI tools, and related training initiatives take learnings from methods and technologies that IBM has applied to drive its own workforce transformation. These services harness the power of AI personalization to guide employees in developing skills and pursuing opportunities to grow within the company. They also allow HR teams to measure flight risk for proactive retention and use bias reduction capabilities to flag bias in recruitment efforts, such as language in job descriptions. When applied to IBM's own HR function, these services drove more than $300 million in benefits to the company, $107 million in benefits in 2017 alone, and resulted in a significantly better candidate, employee and manager satisfaction.
