Redefine employee engagement with Zia

Chatbots have evolved far beyond their humble beginnings as automated answering machines. They are now used by almost every business in some capacity.

To keep up with the emerging trends of the dynamic workforce, HR teams across industries are developing strategies to elevate the employee experience, and chatbots are a useful addition.

The HR industry continues to face difficulties in predicting people's behavior, which impacts employee engagement levels in the long run. A flexible HR service delivery platform is a step in the right direction to ensure consistent and timely HR services while maintaining a positive experience for employees.

What is an HR chatbot?

Chatbots are computer programs designed to respond to user queries in real time. An HR chatbot serves as an assistant to the HR department, helping employees complete routine tasks without human intervention.

Built with a conversational interface, chatbots are deployed on multiple platforms, including websites, mobile applications, and messaging systems.

Why do you need an HR chatbot?

HR chatbots are expected to reduce business expenditures by over $8 billion by 2022, according to Juniper Research. As chat-based communications begin to rise tremendously, HR teams rely on bots to provide an interactive experience while simultaneously boosting the productivity of their dynamic workforce.

Here’s why businesses prefer HR chatbots:

1. Instant responses

Employees can focus on meaningful work while continuing to complete urgent tasks thanks to chatbots' rapid response times.

2. Easy accessibility

Employees experience less stress when resources are easily accessible. The 24/7 omni-channel response capability makes HR chatbots even more appealing.

3. Improved employee engagement

Chatbots analyze and process user queries to deliver relevant answers, and AI generates personalized recommendations based on user interactions, all of which results in an engaging experience for employees.
