Robotic Process Automation in the HR Industry


RPA is a technology that uses software-based bots to automate repetitive and rule-based processes without any human involvement. RPA can be readily implemented and operated without the need for complex software or developer support. It can be programmed to work with already-existing applications. 

Artificial Intelligence and machine learning are the major technologies used by RPA for designated workflows. In the employment sector, robotic process automation (RPA) is picking up steam. RPA technology can screen prospects and locate the best suit around-the-clock. Over the next three years, 78% of businesses that have already deployed RPA expect to increase their investment. 

The RPA market was already thriving, and the yearly growth was tremendous. Many industries embraced RPA in 2021 alone to take advantage of its potential. Manufacturing was the first sector of the economy to use robotic process automation in its growth strategy. The tech sector (31%) and the healthcare sector (10%) came next. 

The use of robotic process automation (RPA) in the hiring industry is increasing at a rapid rate. Let’s discuss how it impacts its functions and operations. 

Screening and Scheduling 

According to Glassdoor data, an average job ad receives 250 resumes in total. What if a bot spent the entire 24 hours carefully reviewing each résumé and selecting the best ones? With RPA and AI, this is a new reality and is no longer just a product of fantasy. 

Interview and Feedback  

It’s obvious the RPA can’t take interviews and select candidates. But RPA can help with interview scheduling and feedback  


There are no doubt robots can be used for data collection and verification. RPA can also consolidate all important data about a candidate for an easier review process. 

Documentation and integration 

For the onboarding procedure as well as compensation and reimbursement management, RPA may generate credentials and configure all IT systems. RPA solutions can create personalized offer letters or relieving letters with the necessary candidate information by simply filling in the specifics. Additionally, it can produce credentials for managing new hire onboarding. 


In 2018, the RPA industry grew at the fastest rate among all corporate software markets. According to Forester Research, by 2025, the RPA market will reach $6.5 billion. With a CAGR of more than 38%, it is anticipated to reach approximately $24 billion by 2030. 

RPA may perform a variety of recruiting duties and streamline the overall procedure within a business if implemented wisely. If RPA replaces most human tasks in the HR sector in the upcoming year, it won’t be shocking.
