INTELLIGENT WORKFORCE PROCESS AUTOMATION FOR HR
An organization’s most valuable asset is its people. However, the HR function continues to be mired in administrative, time-consuming, and repetitive tasks that distract from providing strategic value to the organization. Companies in the UAE are now looking at accelerating their digital transformations to elevate the HR function from a transactional role to a more strategic one. Simultaneously organizations are looking at automation for significantly handling efficiency and reducing costs.
WHAT IS INTELLIGENT PROCESS AUTOMATION?
Artificial intelligence combines with automation to enable machines to sense, learn, understand, and act independently or with human assistance. Intelligent automation allows machines to reproduce manual activity and make intelligent decisions, as a human would. The intelligent workforce process is trending in UAE.
Intelligent process automation has the potential to transform the HR function by boosting efficiency, fostering innovation, and improving productivity. It can help HR professionals make smarter decisions, help shift the focus from repetitive manual tasks to take on a more strategic role in the business, and assist them in getting more done with less.
THE FUTURE OF HR WITH RPA AND INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION
HR is poised for an automation overhaul. There is a trend towards accelerating the adoption of Robotic Process Automation solutions, particularly Intelligent Automation, which is RPA embedded with artificial intelligence. Freeing HR professionals from tedious manual tasks to reduce errors and avoid high turnover has become imperative.
HR PROCESSES THAT CAN BE AUTOMATED:
HR processes that can be automated quickly for fast and valuable results with a high return on investment are:
- Screening resumes and shortlisting candidates
Intelligent software robots can be created to process the data contained in resumes and CVs and align it with the list of job requirements such as office skills, type of degree, or technical know-how. Rules can be created for sending requests for interview emails to candidates and emails informing other candidates that are not shortlisted.
- Onboarding new hires
The tedious and complex process of onboarding new employees becomes more manageable with an automated workflow. Bots send the correct documents in the proper order. They eliminate errors as the process cannot move forward unless adequately fulfilled requirements.
- Completing induction and training
New hires require digital credentials as soon as possible, including an email alias, inclusion in business processes, access rights to appropriate systems and data, etc. Intelligent RPA can do all this automatically.
- Handling employee data
RPA can manage data silos and navigate multiple systems, including benefits, payroll, and compliance. It also takes care of updating of systems consistently
- Processing payroll
Bots can be programmed to confirm employee hours entered into the appropriate system and flag discrepancies with other data sources. They can also aggregate and analyze data from different systems and send reports to the relevant people.
- Managing employee exits
All aspects of the exit workflow can be automated. Approvals and checkpoints can be routed through to human workers as appropriate.
