Artificial intelligence (AI) technology is rapidly changing today’s workforce, creating new skill needs and displacing others.

Gartner research found that three-quarters of jobs had more than 40% of their required skills change between 2016 and 2019, indicating that static roles are no longer an effective way for organizations to think about building the future workplace.

Organizations have multiple options for roles impacted by artificial intelligence beyond simply eliminating them. Based on a role’s risk of AI impact and the proportion of digital dexterity skills, HR leadership can choose to focus, acquire, broaden, redeploy or downsize the role.

This research focuses on how to assess AI’s impact on current roles and then reevaluate role design based on that expected impact.

Answer questions such as:

  • What future skills will my organization need?
  • What can I do to protect my organization today and tomorrow?
  • What soft skills, hard skills, digital skills, etc. will my company no longer need in five to 10 years?
  • When should my organization choose upskilling and reskilling vs. hiring to close skill gaps?

Strategically redesign roles based on potential AI impact and better build the future workforce.
