Several significant changes are seen as companies enter a digitalized form of functioning. Technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) have been given credit for this transformation. Advances in technology such as AI reshape the way businesses recruit, retain and engage with their workforce. As HR professionals look to the future, their primary objective is to rethink from the workforce what they need. They also consider how to reinvent the role of HR by implementing the latest HR technology, and the importance of future-proofing will help drive change. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has a lot of talk and hype and everything it can accomplish. AI could also make a huge difference for HR, in addition to simply automating iterative tasks.

HR's use of AI is on the upswing. To help them overcome their workforce, many popular companies have implemented AI software. This software is used either through acquisitions, the construction of their own platforms, or the use of offers from third parties. The advent of AI has given rise to a new wave of re-skilling, which among the existing workforce is the need for the hour. In the next few years, around 120 million workers in the world's ten largest economies would need re-skilling to make full use of the AI-driven market's potential. All of this AI software is specialized in tracking and analyzing different metrics and is magnificently configured to solve a specific HR challenge. But what they all promise to do is to help business users boost productivity for employees, reduce costs, and help businesses stay competitive in an increasingly digital economy. This technology transforms HR in many ways by enhancing candidate evaluation efficiency, improving compliance, employee relationships, increasing metrics adoption, improving workplace learning, and reducing human bias. Artificial intelligence's most notable impact is on the recruitment and hiring process. When evaluating candidates, it eliminates unconscious bias, and it provides an organization with a more diverse and inclusive workforce. Ultimately, this results in hiring talent that is fit in accordance with the culture of an organization that is intended to bring future benefits.

AI is, of course, in a position to initiate enormous advances in how businesses operate and manage daily activities. However, as we know, it will also bring several changes to the workplace. Usual, iterative tasks and daily assignments will soon be fully automated, driven by AI.
