3 Ways RPA Augments the Efforts of HR Professionals

By HR Tech Outlook | Tuesday, February 25, 2020

In the age of advanced technologies, Robotic Process Automation (RPA) might prove to be the perfect foil for the HR departments.

FREMONT, CA: Robotic process automation (RPA) is making strides in the talent acquisition and recruitment landscape. As an effective enabler, technology is transforming impersonal recruitment processes in the HR industry. A subjective understanding of the value that RPA provides enables forward-thinking companies and talent acquisition professionals to enhance efforts and develop intuitive processes. The following list contains some of the RPA applications that are transforming recruitment processes today.

• Intelligent and Convenient Candidate Sourcing

With prospective job opportunities attracting numerous candidates, it can be challenging for recruiters to engage personally with every candidate. Using RPA, recruiters can automate the online talent-sourcing process by exploring talent databases for qualified aspirants. With bots retrieving candidates on the internet, recruiters can spend more time on fine-tuning talent acquisition strategies. With RPA and talent acquisition experts sourcing candidates and offering guidance, companies will be better placed to extend attractive job offers to the worthy candidates.

• Automated Recruitment Marketing

With automation, HR professionals can engage and interact with candidates. The time saved from automated sourcing of candidates can be spent to create attractive recruitment marketing campaigns that can work for both passive and active candidates. This will create greater levels of engagement among talents. Automating recruitment marketing campaigns also ensures consistent correspondence and provides relevant job postings. This results in a robust talent pipeline and strengthens enterprise visibility.

• Effortless Scheduling of Interviews

RPA can serve as an aid to HR teams and candidates with the interview scheduling process. Bots can give candidates real-time access to a recruiter’s calendar and recommend time slots based on interviewers’ availability. After a shortlist for an interview, an automated invite can be sent to both interviewers and interviewees. This can remove many hassles and extra efforts associated with the scheduling of interviews.

While RPA can make recruitments more efficient, companies need to master the art of successfully implementing the technology into their current models.
