  • Far from the common belief, AI is helping the workforce

Being a manager is never easy — especially during a pandemic. Simple tasks such as hiring, scheduling, payroll, and benefits have become more complicated as people move to hybrid and remote working arrangements.

Thankfully, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to save the day. 

Far from the common belief that AI would rob humans of work, these tools are helping people work better while improving their work-life balance.

According to tech blogger Srikanth, there are three common areas where AI could be used effectively:

  1. Providing a more accurate assessment of labor demands. AI helps business leaders sort their data in no time, leaving all issues resolved and ensuring that the workplace remains healthy and sustainable for their existing and potential workforce.
  2. Improve productivity and workforce satisfaction. AI can set up a proper scheduling system so that everyone’s tasks are scheduled more efficiently — without conflict and duplication. 
  3. Evaluate performance and make accurate recommendations regarding assignments and advancements accurately, leading to a more effective and efficient work hierarchy.

It is not only the leaders who could benefit from AI

The usefulness of AI does not end with business leaders. It also helps employees be better at their jobs.

Dominic Fitch, Senior Consultant and Head of Creative Change at leadership development firm Impact International, notes that AI can take over tedious and repetitive tasks. He added that some can be programmed to tell people to take breaks, stop working, and disconnect from their jobs — something that is difficult to do for remote workers.

AI can also be trained to be on the lookout for areas of advancement for each employee. This allows workers to upskill and learn new things in their line of work.

With all these ideas for advancements, there is every reason to believe that technology will help solve many of the challenges facing the modern workforce as it marches into a new economy and a post-pandemic era.
