Hi, I’m Ben Eubanks. A researcher, speaker, and author living in Huntsville, AL.

My Message

Work could stand to be more human. It really could.

The way we work hasn’t changed significantly since the first workers sat down in their offices decades ago.

My research and books Artificial Intelligence for HR (2018) and Talent Scarcity: How to Hire and Retain a Shrinking Workforce (2023) look at the changing dynamics of the workplace as well as the intersection of people and technology at work.

I don’t believe that how things are is how they always have to be.

This is a recurring theme on my podcast and international keynote speaking as well.
