Limited impact of AI on the Job


level of automation


Our comments:

The Director of Human Resources holds a strategic position that requires a holistic view, a deep understanding of human needs, and complex interactions. Some AI tools can assist in specific areas such as initial recruitment stages, onboarding, internal mobility, and regulatory monitoring. Activities related to strategy development and human relations management demand sensitivity, intuition, and expertise that AI cannot easily replicate.

Finally, managing social relationships requires nuanced and contextual understanding, as well as acute collaboration and negociation skills. Thus, complete automation of this role seems unlikely in the current context. HR Director should be aware of the deep impact that AI will have on the HR teams they manage, and of the necessity to re-orient their activity towards employees development and coaching.
