The Josh Bersin Company, the world’s most trusted human capital advisory firm, is today releasing the latest details of its Global HR Leadership conference Irresistible 2023. Scheduled to take place June 20-22, the conference is bringing together more than 450 senior HR executives at the University of Southern California to discuss the future of work, the labor shortage, organizational culture, and the emerging role of artificial intelligence (AI)–a prominent theme for this year’s flagship event.
In a keynote speech, CEO Josh Bersin will discuss the rapid shift in leadership strategies as companies move to the “post-industrial age,” a time of labor shortages, industry transformation, and a completely new model of work. His keynote highlights the new role of HR in creating “organizational ingenuity” as workers become “superpowered” by AI, and the best practices exemplified by “Pacesetter” organizations in this time of widespread industry convergence.
The Josh Bersin Company will also preview its revolutionary AI system, The Josh Bersin Company HR Copilot. This large language model-powered super search will evolve to access and analyze more than 50,000 pages of research, 1,000+ blogs, extensive podcasts, as well as the Company’s vast research library of case studies, vendor information, labor market insights, and economic data. The advisory firm will demonstrate the educational use cases of the solution to attendees and make it available to Corporate Members in the future. The HR Copilot will bring together search, accurate and detailed answers, exclusive research materials, and professional development opportunities into one, easy “walk up and use” experience to make decades of world-class content Josh Bersin and team have produced more accessible. The technology, which leverages ChatGPT, offers a unique professional development approach to talent leaders and practitioners, and reflects an innovative use of cutting-edge AI technology in the HR space.
