2019 HR Think Tank:
Artificial Intelligence: Elevating Employee Experience

Apr 23, 2019


Disruption is all around us, and it’s generating quite the impact on the employee experience. Incorporating new technology isn’t always an easy task, however, the organizations that are leading the charge in our current “digitally disrupt business era” have HR departments that are talent-centric and AI-powered. Now that Artificial Intelligence is taking the HR reins, leaders are tailoring their road maps and elevating their employee experience strategies to welcome the next level of HR. As we’ve already seen Artificial Intelligence make its rounds across several other departments, what could this technology have in-store for HR? 

Join Argyle, in partnership with IBM, in our 2019 HR Think Tank: Artificial Intelligence: Elevating Employee Experience. During the Think Tank we’ll discuss: 

  • New skills needed for HR executives and their teams as they incorporate Artificial Intelligence into their strategies
  • Where is AI making the most impact: Talent, Business, or the Employee Experience? 
  • How AI can build a better work force and stimulates a positive work environment
  • Challenges encountered by HR leaders when implementing Artificial Intelligence into their organization
