AI and machine learning technology are progressing at incredible speeds, and our ability to aggregate and analyze information more effectively is one of the keys to helping solve the talent gap in our companies.

Machine learning authority Ashutosh Garg has teamed up with leadership expert Kamal Ahluwalia to release a comprehensive guide aimed at providing a better understanding of the changing talent landscape and how to overcome low retention and high employee dissatisfaction. Combining data and insight from over 20 experts with their own extensive experience, the authors illustrate how artificial intelligence (AI) can be leveraged as a multi-faceted solution to today’s talent crisis.

Having spent decades in various leadership roles, both Garg and Ahluwalia experienced firsthand the impact of high employee turnover and inability to fill roles with qualified candidates, twin pillars of the talent crisis. Armed with a desire to solve employment for everyone, they discovered that machine learning could aid business leaders in building the best teams possible while ensuring employees are receiving the necessary training and opportunities to feel fulfilled and successful in their roles.

“With our expertise in AI, we have an opportunity to rethink the entire talent management problem,” the authors said. “AI and machine learning technology are progressing at incredible speeds, and our ability to aggregate and analyze information more effectively is one of the keys to helping solve the talent gap in our companies.”

Ineffective recruitment techniques, mismanagement of applicants, emphasis on recruitment over retention, failure to cultivate existing talent and lack of diversity in hiring are just a few of the root causes of the talent crisis as identified by Garg and Ahluwalia. From recognizing key players in a company and mapping out an employee’s career trajectory to eliminating hiring bias, AI can initiate a positive transformation in how businesses cultivate talent.

“AI can help bridge the talent gap by providing candidates and employers with forward-looking insights that reveal not only what someone has done but what they are capable of doing. With this insight, companies can find, engage and motivate their best people to help them achieve personal and business success,” the authors wrote.

Geared toward business leaders, HR professionals and job candidates alike, “What’s Next For You: The Eightfold Path To Transforming The Way We Hire And Manage Talent” is a helpful resource in identifying problems with existing talent management strategy and exploring an AI-based talent management system as the solution.
