HR Automation is the process of using software to manage repetitive human resource tasks. Tools such as Human Resource Management Systems (HRMS) can be used by companies and organisations to design, streamline and deploy human resource processes like managing timesheets, payroll, performance management, etc.
It is essential for companies to adopt automated processes as it efficiently and accurately performs tedious and repetitive tasks which would otherwise have to be performed by humans. This frees up time for them to focus on more human-centric activities such as strategising or decision making. This also saves the company time and money as automation ensures that certain tasks are performed error-free and as efficiently as possible.
