What role does AI play in HR?

Technology is tied to achieving business outcomes, driving greater efficiency, and optimizing processes. AI is continually changing how we interact with technology. The role of AI in HR has expanded to include candidate sourcing, success predictions and automating routine and time-consuming tasks. AI is also enhancing everything from content creation and chatbots to customer service and compliance checks. However, we need to remember we can’t take the humans out of HR. Instead, it’s about using technology to reduce complexity, solve problems more quickly and ultimately drive greater value creation.

Our industry-leading technology platform enables companies find, hire, onboard, pay, and manage team members swiftly and smartly, regardless of geography.

These integrations enable seamless and error-free data flow between the G-P Global Employment Platform and HCM, applicant tracking, payroll, and other systems.

How do you plan to innovate and improve the Global Employment Platform in the future?

G-P’s mission is to drive continued advances in enabling and supporting the ‘everywhere workforce’. In support of that mission, we’ve accelerated the pace of product development innovation and will soon be delivering additional platform capabilities including:

  • Equity – The ability to transact and report on taxable equity events requiring payroll and payroll reporting in various countries.
  • Background Checks – Automate and simplify background checks, making them an integral part of any hiring process, whether background checks are routinely done for new hires or only when necessary, to comply with local or federal laws.
  • Digital Wallet for G-P Contractor – Enhancements to G-P Contractor will provide greater flexibility, choice, and speed for payments. This will allow contractors to receive payments for invoices directly into their bank account or digital wallets. Additionally, customers will have options to pay contractors’ invoices directly from their bank accounts, digital wallet, or debit cards.

How does AI help companies expand globally?

International business growth and artificial intelligence often go together. The McKinsey Global Institute recently analyzed economic data from the United Nations, the World Bank, and the World Economic Forum and reported that by 2030, AI has the potential to add 16% — or about $13 trillion — to the global economy. It could also boost the global gross domestic product (GDP) by up to 26%.

AI automation via digital platforms provides a convenient way for companies to expand internationally. For example, AI provides instantaneous, accurate translation services that improve dialogue, decrease miscommunication, and make international cooperation much more streamlined and effective. With the right technology solutions in place, and the help of EOR partners, IT leaders can lead with transformative results giving companies access to talent anywhere.

Thank you, Nat! That was fun and we hope to see you back on soon.
