Employee Onboarding- Imagine being able to assign intelligent robotics personalized to every new hire in their entire onboarding process! This is made possible, thanks to new AI capable HR systems that create new employee profiles, and answer employee queries on policies!
Compliance – Compliance has largely been considered a mundane task by most HR professionals for decades and was one of the first use cases of artificial intelligence making headway into HR processes. By virtue of its rapid data processing and error removal capabilities, artificial intelligence based systems can drastically minimize compliance related bottlenecks.
These and many more, including even corporate learning and development, are seen to be practical applications of AI in HR functions. It’s time to welcome the artificially intelligent!
