The HR leader of LinkedIn addressed HR Tech Summit Singapore delegates about the future of work
What does disruption mean for HR and how will it affect the future of work?
“Change models have been out there for 30 or 40 years. It is actually the pace of change and the speed at which it is accelerating that feels a little different,” said Nutan Singapuri, senior director HR, Asia Pacific at LinkedIn.
“Think about how artificial intelligence, big data and cloud computing is transforming traditional business models. This pace of change is what we’re dealing with here – are you ready to keep up?”
Nutan was the keynote speaker at the inaugural HR Tech Summit yesterday and kicked off a day of thought leadership sessions addressing questions that resonated with over 300 HR leaders in attendance.
She quoted a finding by the World Economic Forum that there is an AI/automation-based position that will potentially displace 5 million jobs.
“This feels like bad news, however, with change comes opportunity. There are new jobs that are being created almost every day. Think about AI – we will need trainers of AI to teach them humanistic qualities and conduct assessments. How do you make tech more relevant to human beings?” she said.
