AI Technology on Human Resources

It is undeniable that the advent of technology and automation, such as artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized numerous aspects of our lives, including how companies run their operation. One organizational function that has experienced significant transformation is human resources (HR). Indeed, AI has led to redefining the role of HR by reshaping conventional people management practices and unlocking new opportunities for efficiency, accuracy, and innovation. Here are the following areas where AI continues to disrupt Human Resources (HR).

HR Analytics and Data-Driven HR Decision Making 

Looking at our business climate, we now live in a data-driven economy where information is viewed as a currency. As a result, organizations nowadays demand more from their HR Department to contribute to the company’s ability to make more informed, strategic, and effective decisions.

Thankfully, one of the significant impacts of AI on HR is the ability to leverage data for informed decision-making. Chief HR Officers can now generate and handle massive amounts of data, including employee data, performance metrics, and talent management, allowing them to extract meaningful insights from these data. AI-powered analytics tools can analyze this data to provide insights and predictions that can inform HR decision-making.For performance management, AI can also analyze data to identify workforce skills and performance gaps, giving HR an idea of what training and development initiatives are needed to bridge those gaps.

Automation: From Admin focus to Strategic HR

Another aspect where AI is transforming HR is its routinized administrative tasks. With AI enabling HR functions to automate their routinized and administrative works, this frees them to focus on strategic and high-impact functions.For example, under recruitment,HR professionals had to manually sift through stacks of resumes, which was time-consuming and prone to human bias. However, with AI-powered resume screening tools, HR departments can now automate the initial screening process. By having built-in AI algorithms, it can quickly scan resumes, analyze keywords, assess qualifications, saving time and resources while improving the accuracy of candidate shortlisting. 

Furthermore, it can contribute significantly to candidate assessment. AI-powered tools can conduct online assessments and analyze data to evaluate a candidate’s skills, personality traits, and cultural fit. This can help HR departments make informed decisions and identify the most suitable candidates for a position since AI can rank candidates based on their responses and other factors such as qualifications, relevant experience and skills, helping recruiters make accurate decisions on which candidates are eligible for the next stage.

Apart from shortlisting candidates, AI can also help recruiters in candidate sourcing. For instance, there are AI-enabled platforms that have candidate-searching capabilities. These platforms are designed to search through vast databases of resumes not just in the organization’s internal career site but also in social media platforms to identify potential candidates based on pre-defined search criteria, such as skills, experience, and location, helping recruiters expand their talent pool and increase their chances of finding the right fit for job openings.

Shortly, we can expect to see further advancements in AI-powered recruitment and talent acquisition tools, with increased accuracy and sophistication in candidate assessment and sourcing. Furthermore, employee onboarding, along with training and development, will become more personalized and efficient, with AI-powered chatbots and virtual assistants to provide employees with the real-time support that they need. Employee engagement and performance management will be more data-driven, with AI analytics providing insights for proactive HR decision-making. Also, Work-life balance and employee well-being will be prioritized with the help of AI-powered tools that can monitor and optimize employee workload and stress levels.

All these automations will significantly help HR to contribute and focus on the most critical aspects of their work – helping the organization to be sustainable and win by gaining a competitive advantage in the market.
