How RPA Can Help Companies Rethink HR Tasks
Imagine you’re a company actively considering — or even already successfully making use of — robotic process automation (RPA). While your initial purpose of RPA implementation may have been to help your employees speed up order processing or improve the accuracy of data transfer between company databases, you’ve also wondered how you could potentially streamline your human resource (HR) processes, specifically in running payroll and hiring new employees.
The 2015 Human Resources Software Buyer Report suggests that “Buyers relying on manual methods are seeking a new system to improve organization (44 percent) and automation (22 percent), while current software users want more functionality (35 percent).”
One method to move past HR obstacles and streamline activities such as payroll administration, talent management, and employee onboarding is to implement a new HR software suite; however, replacing a previous and dated HR system likely involves contacting a new vendor, paying for a new software, and learning the ins and outs of an unfamiliar system.
