The Power of Robotic Process Automation for HR Professionals
Human Resource Professionals are one crucial aspect of an organization, from hiring process to benefit programs, labor disputes to other administrative needs, HR managers coordinates and plans the HR activities. That's their responsibility, and they are expected to spend quite a lot of their time interacting with their employees. Unfortunately, this doesn't happen.
HR personnel is burdened with a lot of paperwork. From screening applications to managing the appraisals of the employees, there's a lot of tasks they need to perform. Automating these tasks will aid the HR professionals to be more productive. Robotic process automation (RPA) is a great and affordable solution. Here a few tasks are mentioned that RPA can help automate.
Using Intelligent Screening software can automate quite a bit of the process. Train the RPA bot to learn the job requirements of the candidates based on the previous recruitments. The framework additionally figures out how to assemble bits of knowledge about prospective candidates to decide their probability of accepting an offer. Automation can likewise enable recruiters to mine social media profiles of potential hires and fill in the gaps left by customary CVs.
Smart solutions can help in saving time by automating month-end tasks like finalizing the leaves, calculating the benefits and incentives, and making employee compensation as well, generating payslips on demand and distributing them along with the bank payment slips. RPA can perfectly do all these tasks.
Learning and Development
Automation in the field of learning and development (L&D) can present a layer of gamification apparatuses, for example, competitions, identifications, and social sharing that makes preparing modules all the more captivating.
RPA can also determine the training needs of its employee based on their current designation, interests, and aspirations that fills the gap that exists. The data is already available in the sheets, and all that the RPA bot needs to do is compile, calculate and report.

Employee engagement and satisfaction surveys cannot always tell the real sentiment in the work environment for many reasons. However, the current technology can analyze the texts and social media posts on emotions and feelings.
The technology is advancing; therefore, the issues of ethics and privacy should also be addressed. However, RPA bots give a deeper understanding of what the employees feel and what can be done to better engage with them.
