AI and the Future of Hiring, Retention, and Engagement
Against a backdrop of labor market disruption, HR leaders are anticipating an increased pace of hiring as 2023 closes out and 2024 begins.

In this session, hear from Google on how AI is impacting the candidate and employee experience, how employers can embrace these emergent technologies while maintaining quality controls, and what employers need to do to prepare their employees for the looming impacts of AI on hiring, training, employee engagement, and more.
