The world as we know it, has been consumed by the onslaught of inflation and disease, and with it are gone archaic ways of business and work ethics. Our destiny has been shaped by the dire need of connectivity and virtual presence on a global scale. The obligations to be physically present and conduct various business operations have been obliterated and have been replaced with Zoom calls, virtual board-room meetings, virtual conferences, meet-ups, and remote working situations. The need for all of it, to be efficient and fast has never been felt more than now. Even with the pandemic reducing force, the workplace has become more hybrid and hence the need for automation of a multitude of tasks is required more than ever. We need better ways of recruiting, connecting teams, and evaluating wellness via surveys that predict the outcomes of employee retention. All these and more can be done with the help of predictive analysis using Artificial intelligence tools.

At WebHR, we have been stressing the use of such technologies, years ago and have been constantly working towards the achievement of these goals. We at WebHR have identified the heightened need for faster, virtual recruitment, along with training, evaluations, surveys, onboarding, vaccine checks, health checks, well-being, social connectivity, rewards, Facebook-like structure of a tribe formation, and software that builds up a global family of companies. We have taught our systems to help the top tier decision-makers to view the performances within seconds by generating complex reports, with just a click of a button. Our systems can predict the trends that might change the course of very important actions, necessary to avoid overspending or under-spending and save time, in making those decisions. Many companies seem to have been trying their hands at this approach, to get it right, while they may be in their infancy, WebHR has tried and tested these mechanisms with years of research to account for. We know for sure, that we have only scratched the surface of the wide horizons of possibilities of HR automation and are headed in the right direction.

While AI seems to be an indispensable reality and there is no turning away from it in the future, we know human resources is one field that is incomplete without the human touch, our tools are designed to make the HR managers at any organization way more advanced than ever before, their work has been made easy by automating daily HR tasks so much so, that they have time on their hands to deal with human emotions and needs at workplaces. AI has enabled us to have chatbots do most of the repetitive work that requires unnecessary involvement of teams that could do more in the same time frame. Our super-fast communication tools have made sure the privacy of logging into external systems for deals that need secrecy is done in a safe and secure environment, by staying on the same platform.

In the past, companies had the ordeal of switching and juggling between multiple layers of systems to get simple tasks done, and then going further to make them all linked to produce data that can be handled at the same platform. WebHR has eliminated the need to have 100s of applications to solve major tasks at any company. Companies as small as five employees and as large as thousands of employees have the same level of sophisticated multi-task solving automation provided by the software, this has caused the clients to adhere to the software for all the major and minor HR needs. From the feedback that comes directly from the users, we have realized that we have solved a very complex system of handling all aspects of the organization's very basic needs - managing their most important asset "their employees" very efficiently. The always-available presence of chatbots has ensured that companies can now engage their teams at work in more productive tasks than before. Hiring, retaining, and managing the best talent is now done swiftly with these tools,  With the customized knowledge that we possess, professional user presumptions are high. The end users want data input to be processed in seconds, rather than days, to quickly access HR resources, get notified of their availability, and match with certain positions based on their area and localities.

With the raging agonies of the pandemic, it will become impossible to move towards modernization and a better company culture without the adoption of such tools, since we know that the market is ripe for change, as predicted by our team at WebHR, for years now.

We can't stress enough about the importance of automation but, that being said, communication is the key. The leaders at every organization must make an informed decision and educate the teams at work by approaching these methodologies that can pave the path for future success. We need to address the looming dread, felt by many, that AI will eventually replace them for good and provide comfort in the promise that these tools are here to make their jobs easier and not to steal them in any way.

More comprehensible techniques can help the teams slip into varied environments if applied at the right time and with the right people. A detailed road map towards the tasks to be automated should be provided to the task forces and enough time should be given for them to get comfortable with the learning curve, making sure that the employees are constantly aware of the fact that their input and creative desires are always respected when it comes to solutions that need a special human touch. Every human alive somehow functions higher than their capacity by going above and beyond when they see recognition and appreciation for their efforts and hence, comply with these decisions when put forward gently and intelligently.

Constructing A Mechanism of Understanding and Acceptance of AI

To emphasize the dire need, there has to be a display of its potential in every aspect of the operations at any business by a practical addition of AI throughout. AI is a robust way of supplementing and boosting all HR operations like hunting and recruiting suitable talent, hiring, evaluating their performance, and comparing it to threshold criteria of successful parameters, pre-selected through algorithms that gauge and provide accurate results of how to improve them.

The top tier management can assist and augment by jacking their revenue at businesses, through the incorporation of the right methodology, developed using deeper insights into growth strategies and data obtained by AI, that are in line with the company's motto, goals, and targets. This can be done by matching the right kind of talent with the jobs in focus, which can only indicate one thing, a ranged adaptability and acceptance of these advanced technologies and removing all constraints that stand in the way of incorporating these tools, that bring an ease of work at all levels in the company and mitigate all fears and concerns. We need teams and forward-thinking, open-minded professionals who do not fear change and positivity that shapes a progressive future for AI. A harmonious alliance of human elements, amalgamated with technologies, to equip and reshape the way future trends predict and to look forward to the growth trajectories that are both beneficial in the long term and time-saving. In these disruptive times, securing and rationing resources is what we can best do, to provide some relief to the exhaustive talent acquisition and training procedures, we need to learn to become more proactive towards the adoption of these high-tech tools, not just for the sake of efficiency but also to seal the drainage of precious capital that is wasted away, the "cash burn" that eventually leads to the demise of a budding business.

Hope is futile if it is not backed up with strong actions and emotions. Yes, "emotions" cannot be ignored when it comes to bringing AI to the front table. It will call for immense emotional understanding and intelligence. These qualities will most probably be the only growth markers of a successful future alliance of technology and human behavior, shaping a society that lives harmoniously, and making use of advanced and high-tech AI tools. We are looking towards building a world where human beings will be able to deliver their creativity into designing and implementing breakthrough technologies, best suited for the development of modern, more sophisticated workplaces.
