At Workday, we believe that smart public policy is crucial for harnessing artificial intelligence’s (AI) immense potential and safeguarding people from its risks. We’re also committed to taking meaningful action because we recognize that organizations, too, must take proactive steps toward the responsible use of AI in our ever-evolving digital landscape.
That is why Workday partners with policymakers and stakeholders around the globe to promote frameworks, regulations, and initiatives that cultivate trust in AI. When AI is trustworthy and supported by smart public policy, it can improve the way we work, support informed decisions about upskilling and career mapping the workforce, and foster greater access to opportunities.
Today, the Future of Privacy Forum published the “Best Practices for AI and Workplace Assessment Technologies,” the result of a yearlong partnership with Workday, ADP, Indeed, and LinkedIn. These best practices are a commonsense roadmap for U.S. organizations that develop or use AI tools for consequential employment decisions, such as hiring and promotion.
In addition to advancing responsible AI governance, the best practices are a valuable contribution to policy discussions about AI regulation and the future of work. We are proud to endorse this strategy and want to address common questions that our customers may have.
What Are the Future of Privacy Forum’s Best Practices?
The Future of Privacy Forum (FPF) is globally renowned for its research on privacy and responsible data practices. Workday co-developed the best practices with FPF because of the need for a robust, workable roadmap for responsible AI in the workplace that accounts for the shared responsibility of AI developers and deployers.
The best practices leverage Workday’s experience in developing innovative enterprise AI capabilities that maintain a robust responsible AI governance program and safeguard privacy and data security. They are also informed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) AI Risk Management Framework (RMF)—of which Workday is an early adopter—and guidance from U.S. regulators, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
