Are companies equipped to solve the artificial intelligence (AI) and digital conundrum? Perhaps not. Less than half the human resources (HR) executives said in a KPMG survey that their companies had a digital work plan in place at the enterprise or HR level, although more than two-thirds agreed that HR had undergone or was undergoing a digital transformation.
The Indian segment of KPMG International’s latest global ‘Future of HR’ survey, which has responses from 90 HR executives, indicates that HR leaders in India show better acknowledgement and recognition of the need for change in HR compared to their global counterparts.
“Business landscapes are changing rapidly. Most business and HR leaders who participated in the survey have recognised a pressing need for both a workforce and digital transformation and are keen on bringing in this change by making increased investment in newer disruptive technologies like AI and enhanced process automations, in the future,” said Vishalli Dongrie, partner and head, People and Change, KPMG in India.
