HR automation is expected to enhance the efficiency of the HR employees as it frees employees from doing tedious manual tasks allowing them to focus on more complex tasks such as strategizing and decision making. The automation of HR processes has streamlined vital yet time-consuming tasks, especially as hybrid work continues to expand. For example, an HRIS can efficiently process payroll without the hassle of manual errors. This is the reason why the majority of the HR professionals said that payroll is the least affected HR process during hybrid work. Because of HR tech, HR professionals can dedicate more of their time to other tasks rather than correcting errors and discrepancies.
