AI will be a critical tool for taking on some of the heavy lifting, so that HR teams can focus on the most strategic work for their jobs. 29% of HR professionals believe AI will be a tool that helps them in the next five years, enabling them to focus on the more strategic, human aspects of their roles – such as strengthening relationships with candidates and colleagues and creative and strategic work (33%). 

Adam Gregory, Senior Director, ANZ, LinkedIn Talent and Learning Solutions, says: “In Australia, the skills required for the same role has changed by a staggering 27%, with it expected to change globally by at least 65% by 2030. This shift is being driven by the increasing integration of AI in the workplace. AI will reshape entire jobs, work functions and sectors, and we want to support our customers through this shift in the world of work. To help support this change, LinkedIn is reimagining our hiring and learning through the power of AI.  


On the Recruiter side, we’ve launched Recruiter 2024, our new AI-assisted recruiting experience that will streamline the hiring process and make it more efficient. This will free up the time of talent leaders and allow them to focus on the most strategic, people-centric work for their jobs. While for learners, we’ve announced AI-powered coaching in LinkedIn Learning, a chatbot experience that offers real-time advice and tailored content recommendations which is personalised for each member based on their job title, career goal and the skills they follow.” To help organisations navigate the changing world of work, LinkedIn is piloting new generative AI tools in Recruiter and Learning Hub to a small handful of customers today, with plans to roll them out to all customers throughout the year: 

  • Recruiter 2024 – LinkedIn’s new AI-assisted recruiting experience makes hiring more efficient and easy so talent leaders can focus on strategic, people-centric work. Hirers can use natural language search prompts like – “I want to hire a senior growth marketing leader” – and LinkedIn’s AI models, paired with unique insights from over 950 million professionals, 63 million companies and 40,000 skills on LinkedIn can infer the type of candidate the hirer is looking for and provide higher-quality candidate recommendations from a much wider pool of candidates.  
  • LinkedIn Learning’s AI-powered coaching – LinkedIn is testing out real-time advice in two of most in-demand skills that apply across all types of jobs: leadership and management. Learners can pose a question like: How can I delegate tasks and responsibility effectively? Instead of giving you a one-size-fits-all answer, it will ask you clarifying questions to more deeply understand your specific situation and experience and then offer advice, examples, and feedback based on hundreds of hours of content from LinkedIn Learning’s expert instructors. For people looking to learn more about AI, LinkedIn Learning has also unlocked the most popular AI learning courses which are available for free until December 15, 2023.
