Despite a bare outcome of 2020, the pandemic has resulted in a growth of AI-powered automation level. Moreover, it has pointed out the need for a strong HR leadership amid a substantially changing workplace that purely relied on tech tools. In 2021 too, AI continues to transform HR on a vast level.
What is the Role of AI in HR?
Before delving deeper into the role of AI in HR, you need to understand what Artificial Intelligence is.
AI or Artificial Intelligence refers to any simulation of human intelligence in machines. The core components of AI are high-speed computation through complex machine algorithms in handling and processing large data volumes.
The integration of AI in Human Resource practices helps companies work efficiently and smoothly. Now, let us give you the three most essential roles Artificial Intelligence plays in HR in 2021:
1. Automate Repetitive Tasks
Do you spend most of your time performing admin-related tasks? Do you get no time to make strategic decisions for the growth of the company?
It is where AI comes to rescue you! AI helps you automate repeatable tasks easily, which further helps in the reduction of administrative work. So, you can focus on strategic decision-making and innovation rather than being stuck with menial tasks.
2. Data-Driven Decision-Making
Many organisations still rely on manual methods to draw insights from the data and are usually assigned to the data analysts, which creates a delay in the work. These organisations also make decisions with outdated or obsolete information.
Using AI will enable you or your HR team to extract real-time insights from data and give recommendations. In addition, AI removes the common human biases and inconsistencies in a function, resulting in quick decision-making.
3. Enhanced Employee Experience
Witha high level of automation and focus on customer experience, employees want an encouraging experience when they come on board with personalised engagement.
You can effectively embed AI into the entire employee lifecycle from recruitment and onboarding to HR service delivery to provide an encouraging employee experience for your employees.
