When it comes to basic HR functions such as hiring, a lot of time gets wasted on screening resumes and application forms received by the candidates for the open positions.
Software robots can make this process much simpler by easily gathering the applications and comparing all the information against the list of specific job requirements. Using RPA technology, these requirements can be seen as predefined rules which guide the overall selection procedure. Based on this, the qualifying candidates can be sent the interview notification calls, whereas rejection notifications could be sent to those who don’t match the selection criteria.
Use RPA bots to scan resumes for specific keywords, qualifications, and experience that align with the job requirements. The bot can then sort and rank the resumes based on their relevance to the job and send the most relevant resumes to the recruiter for review. The bots can also be used to extract and analyze online presence such as their LinkedIn profile or GitHub account.
Further, HR managers can use RPA technology to eliminate the huge piles of paperwork involved in the process. Using the database that keeps all the potential employees’ profiles, RPA in HR can categorize and notify all candidates of their interview results. With the help of RPA, the HR departments can turn the rather complicated recruitment process into a much smoother one and help attract and retain top talent.
This automation can save recruiters a significant amount of time that is typically spent on reviewing resumes. This also reduces the risk of human error and bias.
