Successfully recruiting new employees requires large amounts of paperwork and processes. In many cases, these tasks are repetitive and time consuming for the HR department as well as the new employee.
Through RPA technology, companies can dramatically increase the efficiency of the administrative and onboarding processes, by effectively communicating with other software systems. For example, after a new hire, the application track system will be updated automatically, a new employee record will be added to the workforce database, documentation will be automatically generated, and the new hire is added to the payroll system. In this way, the onboarding process can be shortened from up to a month to only a few days.
In an HR environment where regulatory changes are frequent and numerous – GDPR, anyone? – RPA offers important benefits as well. When robots are in charge of doublechecking compliance, the chance of a misstep resulting in a hefty fine diminishes greatly.
