HR professionals spend an inordinate amount of their time on data collection and processing. This is why HR teams are looking to robotics and automation to liberate managers and executives from routine tasks so they can focus on adding more value to the business.

Here are five ways AI-empowered robots can transform HR practices:


Robots can shorten the recruitment cycle by shifting through huge amounts of data across social media profiles and CVs to shortlist the right candidate for a particular job. There are AI tools to analyze a candidate’s performance in the job interview to expedite the hiring process.

Payroll Management

Payroll processes are repetitive, time consuming, and low on satisfaction index due to the manual collation of employee data. Robots can bring in consistency and quality while trimming down the cost. They can use data analytics to detect compensation discrepancies and correct them in a timely manner.  

HR Inquiry Management

Virtual chatbots can handle routine HR queries while the more complicated ones can be left for human professionals. This is along the lines of customer service departments using virtual assistants to handle customer management.

Compliance and Liability Management

Changes in government regulations can impact HR processes and activities such as compliance reporting and benefits administration. Robots can ensure that the processes are executed in accordance to the policy of a particular location. The outcome of this is a faster and stricter adherence to compliance regulations with nearly zero human error.

M&A Incorporation

Mergers and acquisitions pose serious challenges to HR departments as it forces them to dedicate effort towards maintaining disparate systems, processes, and procedures across all levels of the company. Robotic processes can step in to seamlessly work across applications and systems without any disruptions, saving organizations time and money.
