Workers at all levels could feel the effects of generative AI, but entry-level employees are expected to see the biggest shift. Employees care more about doing meaningful work than flexibility and growth opportunities, but leaders aren’t always in lockstep with their needs. HR leaders can play a critical role in how organizations adapt to the changes driven by generative AI. That can serve as a broad foundation upon which employees build new skills, such as how to work creatively and responsibly with AI. The global AI skills gap is an urgent need facing many companies today across industries, and this will require strategic investments.
