As the business landscape continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, so too does the role of Chief Information Officers (CIOs) in shaping the future of work. At the upcoming CIODAY in the Netherlands, Jens Löhmar, Workday’s Chief Technology Officer for EMEA, will set the stage. Löhmar’s presentation, “Driving efficiencies, productivity & employee experience with AI & ML,” promises to delve into the transformative power of artificial intelligence and machine learning in finance and HR. We explore what to expect from this session.

The current impact of AI in the workplace

Jens Löhmar’s plenary session will begin with an exploration of the current impact of AI in the workplace. This is an important starting point, as AI has already begun to reshape the business landscape. From HR’s shift to a skills-based economy to the modernization of finance with fully digital transactions, organizations across industries are using AI to improve efficiency and productivity. Löhmar will provide valuable insights into how AI is currently being used in different industries and business areas and what lessons CIOs can learn from these real-world applications.

When it comes to the impact of AI in the workplace, Löhmar will pay special attention to the theme of enhancing human potential through skills and AI. To prepare for the jobs of tomorrow, organizations must embrace a skills-centric mindset, leveraging the transformative capabilities of AI and ML. This approach not only facilitates wiser hiring decisions and the retention of top talent but also enables the upskilling of the existing workforce to meet the demands of today’s digital landscape. Löhmar will share a path to constructing a highly skilled and adaptable workforce, primed to navigate the complexities of the modern business world.

Potential barriers to adoption and the role of data and trust

One of the biggest challenges in implementing AI and ML in the workplace is overcoming potential adoption hurdles. Löhmar will shed light on these challenges and offer strategies to overcome them. Factors such as data quality and trust are critical to the successful deployment of AI technologies. What can CIOs do to build and maintain trust in AI systems and ensure data is used ethically and securely?

Opportunities of AI for the future of work

At the heart of Löhmar’s session is an exploration of the AI opportunities when it comes to shaping the future of work. In a world where the workforce is increasingly distributed, CIOs must adapt to new dynamics and challenges. Löhmar will discuss how AI can enable organizations to lead in this evolving landscape. In addition to highlighting the current impact of AI in the workplace, he will also discuss some of the latest Generative AI capabilities in Finance & HR, such as job description generation, employee growth plans to foster and retain talent, automated collection letter creation and the intersection of conversational user interfaces (UI) and generative AI to enhance how users interact with information and tasks in a natural and intuitive way.
