The more companies rely on technological progress and put AI technologies at the forefront of their business models, the wider the gap between them and potential employees. The reason for this lies in the neglect of a fundamental human need: the need for meaning and recognition in one’s work.

The core of employer attractiveness

Employees are not just looking for salaries and benefits packages.  More importantly, they are looking for work that gives them meaning and self-worth. Alas, a work environment dominated by algorithms and automation processes threatens to marginalize the human contribution. The human being is being pushed out to the margin. This has serious consequences for the perception of the company as an attractive employer.

Job satisfaction

Job satisfaction does not arise solely from the execution of tasks. Personal interaction, teamwork and the feeling of making a valuable contribution to the overall goal are deemed higher. AI can analyze data, improve processes and even make recommendations, but it cannot replace human interaction, empathy or creativity.

Companies that miss the balance between technological advancement and human integration risk being perceived by employees as soulless and impersonal. The result is a decline in employer attractiveness.  This, in turn, can lead to a shortage of skilled and engaged employees.

Finding a healthy balance

It is essential for modern businesses to bridge the gap between advanced technology and human contribution. The combination of artificial and human intelligence is a key component to success in the modern business world. It’s up to companies to put people back at the center of their strategies, optimizing not only their technology, but also their employer attractiveness.

Human Business Labs

At a time when the balance between AI technologies and human engagement is becoming more precarious, organizations like Human Business Labs are taking on a critical role. The above context highlights the growing gap between technology and human satisfaction. This is exactly where Human Business Labs comes in, offering solutions that promise to bridge this gap.

Symbiosis of human and machine

Human Business Labs not only recognizes the value and necessity of the human contribution in the digitized world of work, but specifically focuses on placing this human factor at the center of its development.

Compass for business and humans
