With technological innovations at its peak, the article highlights how conventional job roles in the HR industry and hiring practices have transformed over the years. New-age technologies like Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, Blockchain, Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) have brought in a paradigm shift in the way an organisation operates and have opened several new opportunities in the HR industry.

Speaking to the magazine, Dr Debasish Guha notes how SP Jain is making efforts to equip students and other program participants with the latest knowledge. “We are incorporating information about these innovations in many of our programs. Also, we have started to deploy some of these techniques into our own corporate practices, especially in the use of HR analytics for sales teams,” he says.
