It is becoming clear that company CEOs are taking AI very seriously, and it is starting to inform the strategic direction of many businesses. For example, 44% of CEOs responding to PwC’s 2024 Annual Global CEOs survey believed that Gen AI will drive efficiency and boost profits in the next 12 months.

It is now critical that Talent Acquisition leaders take AI seriously and build strategies that closely align with their business’s strategic direction. Unfortunately, in most cases, this isn’t happening with the urgency that the situation requires.

So, what are the barriers here? Do we fully understand the challenges, and what can TA leaders do to ensure they stay in step with the rest of their business?

My guest this week is Paul Maxin. Paul is a highly experienced Global TA Leader who has worked at a diverse range of major public and private organizations. Paul firmly believes in the importance of approaching AI strategically with a sense of urgency and shares some pragmatic advice on how best to achieve this.

In the interview, we discuss:

Why TA is out of step with the rest of the enterprise

The challenges that stop TA from being strategic

The importance of scenario planning

Calls to action

• What questions should TA leaders be asking themselves?

• Data, measurement, and transparency

• Proving the strategic value of TA

• Auditing and the danger of AI being bias on steroids

• The continuing importance of the candidate experience

• An increasing risk of burnout

• What might the future hold?
