The role of Artificial intelligence in HR
Artificial Intelligence has been getting increasingly popular in the HR sector. According to the Gartner 2019 Artificial Intelligence Survey, 70% percent of organizations use AI-based solutions for HR functions, and another 30% will do so in 2022. This means that more and more companies that provide HR services or have HR departments are seeking to optimize, improve, and automate their operations in order to remain competitive, as applying solutions built around artificial intelligence can help them generate value.
With AI, HR firms and HR departments intend to:
- automate their existing manual processes
- reduce human error processing large employee databases
- enhance employee and candidate experience by improving talent acquisition, onboarding, talent management, and training
Ultimately, by using Artificial intelligence in HR, companies intend to improve their employee’s retention, performance, and productivity.

There are various AI applications available on the market that help innovate and improve HR processes. Here are just a couple of real-world examples:
