In this Digital CIO Summit moment, excerpted from the digital event which took place from April 4-6, Aaron Back hosts Shane Luke, Vice President, Machine Learning & AI, Workday, for a discussion on how Workday can help companies in the hiring process, as finding qualified candidates has become more challenging with rapidly changing skills.
00:05 — In the workforce 10 to 15 years ago, “it was really based on a pretty simple transaction between a candidate who has a resume and maybe some references and a job profile that they were qualified or not qualified for,” Luke says. It was a “one-on-one relationship” between your capabilities and the jobs you’re qualified for, which would change over the course of your career.
00:28 — Today, there’s a major difference, as skills that emerge in a market change very quickly.
00:34 — Generative AI and large language models (LLMs), for instance, are skills that have recently emerged within artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). These skills are now being added to people’s profiles, as it has become part of what employers are seeking for roles that involve AI and ML.
00:55 — Five years ago, having “machine learning” as a skill may have been satisfactory. However, there are now hundreds of subskills under machine learning.
01:15 — Workday can help employers who are looking to find qualified candidates in these spaces. “We have ML that actually helps disambiguate what all these skills are,” Luke explains, so those who are hiring “don’t miss that qualified candidate.”
01:34 — It also helps in cases that are internal to your own organization. “It helps people understand how they can track their own career trajectories over time.
