This tight labor market poses a challenge for employers as they struggle to find the skilled talent they need.

Fortune 500 companies have already invested in accelerating their plans to incorporate Artificial Intelligence (AI) into their organizations and products. As a result, there is an anticipated surge in hiring to support these AI initiatives.

To effectively implement their AI plans, organizations are following key phases:

Phases of AI Hiring Strategy

Currently, most companies are in either phase 1 or 2 and have not reached the stage of hiring in large numbers. However, in the second half of the year, many organizations are expected to enter phases 3 and 4, leading to an intense competition for AI talent.
