Webinar Details

There is a lot of hype surrounding Gen AI and the role it should play in improving employee productivity and collaboration. According to the International Monetary Fund, nearly 40% of jobs will be impacted by AI. On the other hand, a majority of risk and compliance professionals say that employee who uses Gen AI opens the door to business risk (Risconnect survey, October 19, 2023).

But what is fact and what is fiction? As leaders of functions or applications that are employee-facing, what can we leverage now to impact productivity and collaboration, and what should we be wary of to prevent the sharing of sensitive employee data?

Join AI experts from Tola Capital and Simpplr as we discuss:

  • What questions should you be asking to ensure employee data and privacy are protected?
  • Where can you leverage AI today to realize real-world employee productivity and collaboration gains?
  • What does the future of AI look like and how do you future-proof your application and resource investments?
  • What are the potential impacts and opportunities AI presents to humans in the workplace?
