1. Recruitment and onboarding - Employee onboarding is one of the most manual HR processes. Speed up sourcing and pre-hire activities. Automate the manual data processing work within your existing systems. Use natural language processing for resume parsing and serve up only the top candidates, help schedule interviews, generate documents, fill out forms and more.

2. Head-count reporting - Reporting on headcount, salaries and productivity company-wide is a vital part of the HR role. This includes full-and part-time employees, temps and freelancers, outside consultants and other third-party vendors. Updating, aggregating, and reporting this information from disparate systems, and reporting it to your leadership team is done easily.

3. Employee engagement and development - Employee surveys, performance management, career development, awards and recognition, and open enrolment for health benefits are just a few of the responsibilities on the plate of HR teams.
