Ep 286: Robotic Process Automation
The events of 2020 are accelerating recruiting automation at a pace none of us could have previously predicted. One of the problems with the current approaches to automation in talent acquisition is that things tend to be vendor lead, and finding a vendor who fully aligned to all of your needs can be a challenge.
In Episode 283, I discussed the importance of building a strategy for automation and having a helicopter view of all of the elements. However, it is only possible for TA Leaders to take that helicopter view if they have an understanding of the critical building blocks of automation.
My guest this week is Leigh Pullen, Co-Founder and CEO at Ciigen a Robotic Process Automation services company based in Melbourne Australia. Robotic Process Automation or RPA as it is better known is something everyone in talent acquisition needs to understand.
In the interview, we discuss:
• What is Robotic Process Automation?
• Current HR use cases for RPA
• Combining RPA with Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and Artificial Intelligence
• Humans vs Robots
• What will RPA make possible in the future
• The impact on jobs
