Talent and artificial intelligence

According to the CEO Survey, prepared by PwC in terms of talent, 57% of Mexican managers trusted that their workforce will grow moderately in the next 12 months.

“However, they were concerned about the lack of talent: 67% say that it is now more difficult to hire staff in their industry,” says the survey.

In the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI), 86% of the country’s CEOs considered that it will significantly change the world of business, although only 19% said they had already introduced the AI ​​in their business.

“40% do not have any program or solution of this type. Among those who do not have this kind of technology, only 38% would be willing to implement an initiative of this type in the next three years, “says PwC.

The main reasons for not adopting it, highlight the need for a better understanding of it and its effects for your business or the uncertainty about the impact on ROI.
