👋🏼 Well, Hello There!

Welcome to the introduction of the Promptly HR™ newsletter.

With so much going on over the past year regarding Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it is impacting Human Resources (HR), we are determined to help HR professionals understand all of this.

That is why we brought together the Dynamic Duo to help you on your journey of integrating AI in HR. Let’s meet them:

Paul Carney, SPHR

Paul Carney is a well-known HR professional and technology geek. He writes and speaks about using AI in HR because he has a passion for helping HR professionals learn how to leverage the immense power of generative AI (GenAI) in their companies.

And in response to recent rumors, yes, he is a unicorn. 🦄 He has a very unique combination of expertise in technology, business, and Human Resources that very few people in the business world have. It is this combination of talents that enables him to help you quickly and effectively learn to integrate GenAI in your HR functions.

Paul earned respected accreditations from the Blockchain Council as an AI Expert™ and Certified Prompt Engineer™. Paul also published the insightful book, Move Your Æ(ash): Know, Grow, and Show Your Career Value in 2018.

Perpeta Paul™

Perpeta Paul™ is the virtual persona of Paul Carney. Perpeta Paul was born out of Paul’s work to download his extensive knowledge and experiences in technology, business, and HR into an AI Expert System.

Perpeta Paul is the integration of that Expert System with a massive database of HR and business information AND the powerful capabilities of generative AI (GenAI). As smart as Perpeta Paul may be, Paul reminds him that he doesn’t know everything that Paul knows – yet. 😁

🧐 Why is AI so Important to HR?

Since the release of ChatGPT in late 2022, we have been studying and using it, along with so many other tools, to better understand how it works and what impact it will have on HR professionals like you.

As you have likely heard and experienced for yourself, we can confirm that the life of an HR professional like you will never be the same again. Whether we like it or not, GenAI is going to influence our HR careers. And here is the kicker:

As HR professionals, you need to leverage GenAI to enhance your skills and abilities as you tackle HR-related challenges while you also hold the responsibility to be the catalyst for widespread AI literacy in your workplace.

To unlock the power of GenAI, you need to guide employees through the learning process to use GenAI for increased productivity, efficiency, and innovation.

The Promptly HR™ newsletter offers HR professionals like you a roadmap to accomplish these goals. You can only help others learn how to harness the power of GenAI when you have allocated the time to learn for yourself. 

📚 What We Have Learned

Where do we start? 😲 It has been an incredible expedition so far and we are barely out of the train station.

We have learned 2 major points that we will share with you now:

  1. You have used GenAI tools like ChatGPT and found them helpful, but our research shows that you have barely used 30% of the potential of GenAI.

  2. Building quality prompts are the key to leveraging the power of GenAI, and you need effective prompt templates to do this well.

For example, you may have used a simple prompt like this:
