Technology is driving significant change in many industries and professions—HR is no exception. Today’s technology, especially artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, have the power to impact employees in many positive ways—from hiring, to onboarding, to training, coaching, counseling, etc.
GoJob is driven by technology, of course, so we’re definitely biased toward its use at every stage of the employee life cycle. Our AI Lab is developing ethical artificial intelligence to serve recruiting companies—and help move employees along their desired career paths. We specialize in serving the blue collar market, helping manufacturing companies find employees quickly and conveniently. Once on board, we provide access to training for onboarding and other aspects of their jobs.
Multiple Applications and Opportunities
So how does AI come into play for training efforts. In a variety of ways. For instance:
In an IT Chronicles article, Roman Zhidkov covers “7 Ways AI is Transforming Learning and Development.” They include:
Best of all, AI-based training technology can be available to employees 24/7/365 so they can access, and re-access, information when and where they need it. It’s flexible. It’s accessible. And it’s scalable.
AI In Onboarding
Consider the onboarding process and the amount of paperwork that’s required for employees to complete—whether they’re on staff, or contractors. Technology can be used to streamline this process, pushing out the appropriate documents to employees, and even automating the setup of new employee records.
Chatbots also can be used to interact with employees and get them acclimated to the culture and climate of the organization. Employees can interact with this technology to ask questions and get the information they need to hit the ground running.
Employees can be on board and working more quickly—and because AI is so scalable, you can onboard dozens—even hundreds—of new staff quickly and easily.
AI In Training
Need to alert employees to a new safety initiative? Want to do training on a new piece of equipment? Complying with mandatory training requirements for your industry? Needing to keep Scope of Work (SOW) documents always updated and readily accessible for workers in the field?
AI and machine learning can do all of this and more.
AI In Self-Service Settings
The work world is complex, often especially so for blue collar workers who work in a wide range of settings, with various types of equipment, and who often need to navigate from one project to another quickly. It’s not humanly possible for employees to remember every detail about your operations, or their work. They don’t have to. Having access to information, policies, procedures, etc., through their mobile devices whether they’re in the office, or on a construction site means they can remain productive while following appropriate work practices.
