::: 27/02 - Within the framework of its research circle "Digital Humanism", the Collège des Bernardins is organizing a conference on February 27, at 7 pm, on the theme "Work and data, a dangerous link ? »Having become a privileged place of observation, the management of human resources transformed by digital technology, artificial intelligence and blockchaining in particular, raises ethical questions linked to economic interests.
While connected equipment is changing the use of space and working time via the digital workplace, improving performance, work seems to be transforming and penetrating into the space of intimacy or entertainment calling for disconnection temporalities. Thus, in today's highly competitive job market, we are witnessing a different kind of attention from the employer, who, in order to attract and keep the best talent, thinks first and foremost of the employee experience and the satisfaction of the employee's well-being.
Today, thanks to the capacity provided by digital technology in the processing of huge amounts of data, uses that require increased adaptability are optimised and low value-added tasks are automated.
However, if in the war for talent the employer becomes a service provider, does this not lead to the systematization of an increasingly explicit classification between individuals, which could lead to the creation of a society defined by categories, ratings and rankings?
In this sense, a certain number of values are often put forward, such as "transparency", "authenticity" or "sincerity", the validity or common requirement of which can be questioned by all the actors involved.
The social and anthropological preconceptions of the algorithms would have to be questioned. How do you design a tool? What responsibilities are assigned to HR management tool designers, customers and employees? For example, what are the purposes or convictions that accompany the design of a chatbot? Why are they so often cute, childish, friendly?
How can we understand the desire for digital transparency? Is a form of power that is exercised through the meticulous study of data more just and rational?
European leader in the field of HR software publishing, Sopra HR Software (a subsidiary of the Sopra Steria Group), will present its new generation of HR 3.0 solutions adapted to the challenges and practices of the digital world, such as decentralised data entry, electronic validation, data security and mobile accessibility.
What can be delegated to digital intelligence? What is the ideal man-machine complementarity? Will natural intelligence be influenced? This is the subject of research applied to HR practices carried out by the Sopra HR Lab (Sopra HR Software's innovation laboratory).
