Around 68 percent of companies surveyed believe that the implementation of Artificial Intelligence in the Human Resource process increases overall job accuracy, according to a report.

The report revealed that 72 percent of respondents agreed that using AI in the HR process boosts productivity and saves time as they believe it can automate many HR-related procedures and boost the effectiveness of the system through chatbots.

The report by HR solutions provider Genius Consultants is based on an online survey with over 825 organizations spread across sectors including banking and finance, construction and engineering, education, FMCG, hospitality, HR solutions, IT, ITES and BPO, logistics, manufacturing, media, oil and gas, pharma, among others.

It further revealed that over 44 percent of respondents indicated that AI-based chatbots are currently the preferred tool for initial interactions during the hiring process, which also helps new hires settle into their responsibilities and understand the company's many aspects later.

However, 48 percent said they are skeptical about using chatbots as most people are yet to adapt to the developing technology. Similarly, the report also revealed that 68 percent of the participants did not think that AI technology would be preferable for orientation and the HR process, as the implementation incurs huge costs and raises privacy concerns. In contradiction, over 63 percent said AI technology was a big helping hand for employee onboarding and training as it could yield more impactful results at work, it said. Over 56 percent of respondents believed that AI would take over humans in the coming years, it added. The report stated that most organizations are already implementing AI and other technological advancements in many areas, starting from identifying candidates with the right skill sets to payroll to manufacturing to customer management.

According to 75 percent of respondents, new hires should undergo automated and AI training as it helps them to better understand corporate rules and if it is educational it can also help in reducing attrition, it said. “With the current scenario, AI is the way forward for all industries including the HR sector. While it is considered to be a cost-center for the companies it should be viewed as an investment for grooming resources,'' Genius Consultants CMD R P Yadav added.
