“Human Resources isn’t a thing we do; it’s the thing that runs our business”- Steve Wynn.Imagine recruitment without technology, your process is still manual, and automation is only an illusion. Paper flies from one desk to another. Your team is struggling to find the data they need and spends maximum time on trivial tasks that could otherwise be automated.
What chaos, isn’t it?
Let’s face it; you can never take the ‘human’ out of human resources. Many tasks, like creating a job description, sourcing candidates, conducting interviews, etc., are done manually.

HR professionals can use bots for scheduling interviews. Bots can provide candidates with real-time access to the hiring manager’s calendar so that candidates can select specific time slots based on availability.
