Do you wonder how the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI) will impact your workplace, or what the future of AI could mean to HR? These are questions we as HR professionals should be paying attention to, and will get the opportunity to explore with Christina Gerow, Senior HR Business Partner at Workday and esteemed guest speaker Peter Scott. Come prepared to expand your knowledge of Artificial Intelligence as this event promises a lively discussion on the future of AI in the workplace.
