Using artificial intelligence (AI) technology for various talent and HR practices—such as recruiting, employee engagement, and performance management—has the potential to revolutionize HR and various talent management practices. As HR leaders and their teams explore these technologies and their use cases, I have pulled together this one-page PDF with 5 resources. These resources address different considerations for AI-based tools in HR, such as:
- promoting the responsible use of AI technologies in HR
- understanding how AI works and derives its predictions and inferences—a process known as “explainable AI”
- risk-mitigation strategies for overcoming common challenges of implementing AI tools in talent management
- different uses cases for AI in HR.
The PDF includes links to the source articles and reports and briefly summarizes the contents. For example, the 36-page paper by the Society of Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) presents recommendations for validating and using AI-based assessments for employee selection. It provides guidance—backed by scientific research — on how AI-based assessments can be used effectively and legally in employee selection contexts. The 59-page toolkit by The World Economic Forum includes editable checklists and questionnaires to guide the evaluation and implementation of HR-based AI platforms, such as questions to ask vendors when evaluating their AI tools. Each resource can help educate purchasers of these platforms on the various components of AI—increasing the likelihood of selecting the right technologies for their organizations while mitigating risks.
