The process of recruiting qualified individuals to join an organization can be a difficult task for the HR. This is because, all manner of applicants respond to job advertisements without due care of whether they are really qualified or not. You can’t entirely blame job applicants that much because they are in dire need of employment and for that matter their actions are mostly fueled by frustrations resulting from unemployment.
The questions arising there is: How can HR deals with floods of application letters and still fish out the best talent for the ideal job? How can the long hours spent on recruitment process be reduced to the barest minimum to allow more time for the most important task namely quality interviews? Yet still, how can the recruitment process be simplified to enable applicants apply for vacant job positions faster. The answer lies in the discovery of an innovative solutions driven by automation.
According to KPMG UK, HR can drive the automation agenda in some 7 ways. The third way of driving automation according to KPMG calls for a change in HR practices. The article states: “Start small, but start now. Consider aspects of the business that could benefit from being automated. HR may be a good place to start – companies such as Unilever have benefited from introducing chat bots to deal with basic HR queries, freeing up the rest of the team to deal with more complex queries or work on more strategic projects”
We can agree less. One area needing an urgent change in HR is the traditional way recruitment is being done. Automation can really help innovate the process for efficiency. The best technology that can cause this kind of change is Artificial Intelligence to be precise, conversational chatbot. Upon thorough research and understanding of the recruitment process, we have created the HR Job Vacancy Chatbot. But the question is, how exactly are Chatbots Automating HR Recruitment for Efficiency? The answer lies in what problems are identified and what solutions can the HR Job Vacancy Chatbot provide.
How It Works
How does it work and what problems can the HR Job Vacancy Chatbot solves? First of all, the chatbot works as a conversational tool by interacting with job applicants. As an AI chatbot and a web link, it is programmed to collect applicants’ particulars as quickly as possible. This is flowed by an internal screening process where applicants are shown the job requirement before they are allowed to submit both CVs and Cover letters. Then the critical moment comes for the applicant to schedule his own interview. Since every HR Department plans ahead, the chatbot will program a specific interview period to guide applicants to book interviews within (for example between June 1-10, 2018). Important: Before each applicant books an interview, he is shown the key qualifications, normally 2 ( academic qualification – MBA plus minimum work experience 5). Applicants now answer YES or NO to indicate they qualify or otherwise before booking interviews. This is the best part of the process, it is programmed to do automatic screening of your applicants
What are the benefits of this automation and innovative idea? For one thing the process is conversational for job applicants. They apply for employment in just under 5 minutes and then wait for interview confirmation date from HR. Applicants also act on their own conscience by responding to questions asked by the chatbot. These responses can be verified any time needed during the interview. Above all, applicants are free to select their own suitable interview day and time.
The HR on the other hand benefits in many ways. The HR Job Vacancy Chatbot is capable of completing the recruitment process 95% for HR. Floods of unwanted application letters sent to HR under the traditional method is highly controlled when the chatbot is used for that matter, screening of application letters for longer hours is no longer needed. Time is indeed saved because almost all job applications are self-screened. It is however likely that, interview bookings per certain days may be more that HR can handle. For that matter, arranging interviews becomes the only work the HR will concentrate efforts on during the entire recruitment process.
