Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to transform the human resource (HR) industry by automating routine tasks, improving decision-making, and enhancing employee engagement and retention. In this paper, we explore the use of machine learning and deep learning techniques to boost employee retention in the HR industry. We review the current state of the art in AI for HR, including the use of predictive analytics, natural language processing, and chatbots for talent management and employee development. We also discuss the challenges and ethical considerations of using AI in HR, including issues of bias and the need for transparent and explainable algorithms. Finally, we present case studies of successful AI-powered HR initiatives that have demonstrated improvements in employee retention and engagement. Our findings suggest that AI has the potential to significantly enhance employee retention in the HR industry, but its implementation requires careful planning and consideration of potential risks and ethical issues.
