While it may be tempting to assume that automation only effects manual labor intensive jobs, that’s not exactly the case. According to a recent CareerBuilder survey, 72 percent of employers believe that within the next 10 years, some roles within talent acquisition and human capital management will have gone completely automated.
Automation is already available within the HR space for a wide variety of essential functions. Yet even of employers who have begun to automate some processes through HR technology, most have only scratched the surface.
The most commonly automated functions are employee messaging and setting up benefits and payroll.
