AI is certainly one of the biggest of all technologies developed for HR till date, but AI is not here to replace humans but to empower them. Yes, rather than replacing the human resource with robots or automated programs, AI will simplify the way HR functions.

Reveal New Insights for Potential Candidates
By quickly sifting through the large blocks of information, AI tools can dive intelligently into social sites, career portals, knowledge sharing platforms, journals and other platforms to update information related to specific candidates. This information is often used for skill validation. With this information, employers can understand their work patterns, interests, level of engagement and what potential opportunities that candidates are looking forward in the future.
Work as HR Assistant and Streamline Employee Onboarding
AI tool works as virtual assistants in the employee onboarding process. It can help create new employee profiles seamlessly and educate new staff about organization policies, insurance, benefits, and values. When you replace some of the mundane tasks of HR, they can focus more on what they are their best: nurturing, cultivating, retaining and working with talent.
Predict Probable Issues Before They Strike
AI won’t just enable HR in recruiting, it’ll help devise solutions for problems before they arise. For example, it will give you an insight how engaged are your employees by observing patterns in their activities. This can help in better management of human resource and more engaged work culture where employees feel valued and empowered.
The quicker an organization embrace AI, the easier it will be for them to scale and be ready for the digital era. Businesses who have employed AI-based technology in their HRMS software have seen striking results such as increase in employee productivity, happier workplace and employee retention.
Post Offer Acceptance
There’s usually a gray area exists where a candidate accepts a job offer. This high chance of uncertainty reaches it peak normally after two weeks from the date a candidate has given notice at his previous organization to the time they are expected to join your organization. AI could fill this gap by engaging and following up with the candidate to increase the acceptance ratio of your desired candidates.
Artificial intelligence can shift human tasks to more strategic tasks that matter. HR people will be able to do work more precisely in less time, have bigger-picture thinking and can free time for innovation and strategic HR tasks. The key thing is to remain flexible and open to embrace new technology.
