HR Happy Hour 279 – Artificial Intelligence for HR and for People
Host: Steve Boese
Guest Co-host: Madeline Laurano
Guests: Cecile Alper-Leroux, Armen Berjikly, Ultimate Software‘
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve Boese and special guest co-host Madeline Laurano recorded a special Happy Hour Show live from Ultimate Connections 2017 in Las Vegas. They were joined by Ultimate Software’s Cecile Alper-Leroux and Armen Berjikly to talk about the need to listen to the ‘Voice of the Employee’, the importance of technology to help HR leaders understand data, (especially unstructured data), and how modern technology solutions can help HR leaders move from just listening, to understanding, and finally, to taking actions, (and recommending actions).
The theme for the Ultimate Connections Conference was ‘Elevate’ – and the key idea to how HR and business leaders can elevate the employee experience by listening to their needs more closely, applying new technologies that can help analyze data from employee surveys and other disparate sources for things like sentiment and tone, and finally using those insights to take actions that can improve the organization and the individual employee experience.
Additionally, Steve re-visited Schoolhouse Rock, his old fashioned method of accessing data from a database, the happiest countries in the world, and Cecile cemented her position as all-time leading HR Happy Hour guest.
