Megan Butler is a PhD student at the Leeds University Business School (LUBS) and Senior Research Advisor at CIPD, the ‘voice’ of over 150,000 HR professionals. She looks at artificial intelligence from an HR and recruitment perspective. “There is amazing technology out there that is doing so much for us. And we are definitely running into some challenges implementing it and really bringing out robust recruitment and HR practices. But we are in the early stages.”

As it is new, we as HR and recruitment professionals will have to remain an important part of the process”. Check out her whole story during the Recruitment Tech Event 2019 below.
