One of the of the most significant disruption over the last one year is how people and businesses have embraced remote working and virtual technology. Given the benefits experienced by everyone, remote and hybrid working models are here to stay and technology will be a crucial part of this.
On the human resource management front, be it the recruitment interviews, open houses, or employee onboarding process – all functions are being performed virtually. However, it is not anymore just about using various forms of conference calls and chats to communicate during the employee recruitment and onboarding journey. Data-driven HR practices are now helping people managers and CHROs to push the boundaries and explore possibilities for a complete overhaul of how human resource professionals conduct their business.
Use of these new-age technologies are simplifying and providing real time insights for recruitment. While there is a plethora of HR tools that aid employee evaluation and analysing their past work history, tools like facial and emotional recognition are getting prominence in determining the employee behaviour and their involuntary micro expressions to assess the candidates. These AI tools have been designed to assess their emotional intelligence and can serve as viable tools for employee listening. It also amplifies the employees’ digital footprint and provides additional information about an applicant with data analytics. An AI platform will analyse whatever data is available online to deduce the candidate’s profile and provides a deeper insight for people managers and CHROs to make a better hiring decision.
