Measuring the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on jobs at the organisation level
This Research Note by Wil Hunt, Sudipa Sarkar and Chris Warhurst proposes a methodology based on the use of bespoke employer surveys. Drawing on a new and unique survey of UK business leaders, it illustrates the utility of this approach through the presentation of descriptive findings on the association between introduction of AI and job creation and destruction within organisations.
Professionalisation of career development services and online/multi-modal practice in Canada
Jenny Bimrose, Emeritus Professor at IER, and Tannis Goddard, PhD graduate at IER, have co-authored a new paper as part of an initiative by Future Skills Council, Canada, aimed at promoting the value of career development to post-pandemic recovery.

Professionalisation of services has become urgent. Furthermore, Covid-19-related restrictions have made the integration of technology into the delivery of career development services no longer an option: the adoption of suitable technologies, however, implies fundamental change to practice.
