Ep 585: Embracing Automation


As I’ve said before, automation is inevitable in talent acquisition. Automation can bring essential efficiencies and a vastly improved and personalized experience for everyone when done correctly.

The question shouldn’t be, do we automate; instead, TA and HR leaders need to ask what we automate and how we do it.

My guest this week is Brigette McInnis-Day, Chief People Officer at UiPath. UiPath has been at the vanguard of Robotic Process Automation for several years, helping companies automate systems and processes across different parts of the enterprise. Brigette has deep expertise in automation and HR Tech and highlights some critical areas that TA Leaders should pay attention to.

The first is using an enterprise automation platform to bring data, processes and quality of experience together across the entire organization. There is an assumption that TA tools will drive recruiting automation, and it is essential to understand that integrated company-wide automation strategies may dictate the pace of change.

Brigette also highlights some excellent use cases, including how UI Path has automated onboarding to offer a quicker and more personalized experience.

In the interview, we also discuss:

• How automation improves experience

• Why are HR and TA so hesitant about automation?

• How the employer/employee relationship has changed

• Automation driven personalization

• Thinking holistically and planning strategically

• The impact of automation on jobs and careers
