The modern human resource department is faced with the daunting task of reinventing how they run activities like recruitment, job evaluation, teamwork, and employee perks. They face challenges such as rapidly evolving technologies, ensuring compliance with local and international regulations, managing a geographically dispersed workforce, and so on. Also, millennials will account for about 75% of the global workforce by 2025.
All these challenges necessitate that HR professionals look for ways to provide talent management, career development, employee engagement, flexible work schedules, and telecommuting.
Machine learning in the HR department

•Streamline the recruitment process
•Schedule HR functions including interviews, group meetings, performance appraisal, leave and holiday approvals, and so on
•Use HCM reports to evaluate employee engagement
•Streamline reward and appraisal programs
•Personalize employee training
With time and after absorbing data from applications such as HCM Fusion, machine learning will:
•Be a source of pertinent info and questions relating to company procedures, conflict resolution processes, employee benefits, and company policies
•Identify weaknesses and skill gaps and personalize training
•Track, guide, and improve employee growth
Integrating deliberate innovation in employees’ roles
In spite of the adoption of technology in the HR department, HR professionals should take a deliberate and systematic approach when implementing it. They should ensure that every employee understands how such technology suits their role. If this is not done, it is likely that you will not see its benefits as employees might not engage. Innovation should be incorporated into key performance indicators (KPIs) and employee job descriptions. Establish what technology-related behaviors you want to encourage in your employees and reward them accordingly.
The bottom line
Deliberate innovation requires a deep analysis of your organization’s policies and practices. Variations need to be identified, and deliberate actions and decisions taken on the nature of technological innovations that will be implemented.
