Technology is moving at the speed of light engulfing the business world completely. But the big question is how well the disruptions created by technology are embraced by employers as well as employees.
Through the years, changes brought by technology have always been the source of distress for business owners and HR professionals alike. Even though it beholds better working practices and improved efficiency, it is human nature that some of them will feel dubious about incorporating AI and data analytics in their traditional process. Some of the alarming data which says that 7 million jobs will disappear by 2050 according to Labour Bureau data; is indeed a reason to worry. All of these put business owners in a bit of a tricky situation. This brings the HR to a crossroad wherein one needs to have a clear picture to overcome the barriers to go through this technology journey to reap the benefits in future.
