#MissingSHRM20, but did we?

This is the point where everyone is putting out "what did I learn at SHRM" blog posts. But not this year. COVID has seen to that. But even if we can't meet in person, we are doing what we can to continue to meet virtually. It's not the same, by any stretch, and even the …

A.I. (artificial intelligence) has been a topic of conversation in the HR world for a long time. We want to automate some processes, but we also have employees who worry about their role if some processes are automated. What happens in recruitment if screenings are done by AI?
