The AI and Employer Brand Showdown
13 Mar, 2024
Kicking off our 2024 webinar series, we welcome Riley Stefano, Global Lead for Employer Branding at DataDog, and Claudiu Badea, Lead Graduate Recruiter at Shell, to the stage. The theme for this panel discussion is the AI and Employer Brand Showdown.
We are now firmly in the era of AI, which has taken over the landscape in recent times. It is by far leading the way for the most talked-about concept in 2024. Of course, AI technology isn’t entirely new, but we’re seeing more and more companies discuss how they can incorporate the concept into their day-to-day lives.
The same is true for Employer Brand. Teams worldwide are discussing how they can weave in the technology throughout their processes and reap the rewards from the benefits it can bring around scalability, time-saving and productivity. However, these benefits don’t come without challenges. Often, the challenges and disruption it can cause on authenticity, trust and removing the human element have been discussed which is so important in the world of Employer Brand.
Throughout this webinar, we will be listening to the different views and perspectives of our speakers. We will discuss potential use cases for AI, how the technology can be used in a responsible way, and what the future of Employer Brand may look like, as there’s no doubt that AI is here to stay.
Join us on Wednesday, 13th of February at 4pm GMT to see if a world can really exist where Machine-powered meets People-powered.
