Artificial intelligence is creating ripples already and business leaders across the globe are planning for the future, along with their human resource department heads. Human resources is one of the most important functions in an organization, responsible for adding manpower, holding inductions and training, inculcating workplace culture, enforcing policies, and a lot more.
Though there have been underlying concerns about robots replacing humans in their job, experts are of the opinion that AI is here to aid and assist, making way for improved and high-efficiency roles for HR personnel. Here’s what they are looking forward to:
Extend hiring assistance
Scouting for perfect candidates is both difficult and tricky. It is not something robots can do flawlessly. However, they can definitely help reduce the effort by carrying out initial CV screening and finding the best match. It will help HR professionals save the time they spend looking for candidates and shortlisting them. Further, AI can aid in first-level communication with the candidates and scheduling interviews.
Assist in employee onboarding
On-boarding new joinees involves a lot of tasks such as introducing them to organization’s policies and processes, creating their profiles and IDs, and answering their questions in general. All these tasks can be done using bots while human resource team can focus on other leadership-centric tasks.
Encourage data-driven culture
Businesses are increasingly becoming dependent on data and all functions are expected to step up and speak the same language. Till now, HR has been a more human function with comparatively lesser adoption to numbers. With AI, data will become easy to compile, arrange, study, and analyze. This will encourage a data-driven culture, bringing HR at par with other functions when it comes to performance metrics.
Improving efficiency through insights
Artificial Intelligence will enable the human resources teams to identify redundant and time-taking processes, which can be either be eliminated or made leaner, making way for more efficient operations and management.
