Google Allo : HR’s New Best Friend!!!

“Send a reminder mail to Mr. Jayant, Miss Naina and Mr. Kunjal for sending across their Education and Work Experience Certificates”

“Share the list of last weekend drives final Dot Net and Java Selects. Also attach their Interview Assessment Sheets”

“Do Schedule a meeting with Mr. Kamdar on 5th Oct at 4pm IST for discussion around celebrating #WomanAtWork. Also attach Diversity Hiring Report 2016 with the schedule”

Response: Done 🙂 Happy to help.

So, by now you would have realized that I am dictating this to someone and that someone has done the needful. Any guess who this someone might be? Well, it’s my new friend aka Google Allo. Life has become easy and I am able to focus on other productive work. All I have to do is type these instructions and Google Allo (Assistant) will do the rest. This is really an amazing way to delegate some transactional work and it surely saves lot of your time. You can ask for reports, schedule meeting, set reminders, ask Allo to also attach important files, links, Videos, Pictures and so on.

One of the major challenges that hiring professionals face during weekend drives is to follow up with candidates, remind them about their schedule, ask them to bring in the required documents and also follow up again on the day of the weekend drive. Allo can help you do it all. All you have to type in the required instructions and that’s it 🙂 Simple right.

And guess what, post the event Allo can send in thank you note to all those who have attended the recruitment drive. To make things more interesting, Allo can also send the list of Final Selects to the Delivery Manager. That’s amazing stuff. All this possible just by typing 😉

Here are a few more examples that might help you to leverage Google Allo:

So how many of you actually tried it out!!! Did it work for you? Yes, No!!!  Before you remove me from your friends list, let me confess; this does not work as of now. But this will soon be a reality and HR will benefit a lot from this. Getting Data will not be boring anymore. It will be just a chat away. (Was tempted to use this line “Data is the new OIL”) 

Would be great to know your views, comments and suggestions on any other ways in which Allo or any other  Assistant apps can helps our HR community.

Dare : A Bold New HR

Who dare wins!!! Have you read this before? I’m sure most of you would have. It’s been long since I have been reading and hearing all sorts of things about “Do we need HR” “Can companies live without HR Function” and so on. Thanks to the so called tons and tons of HR Jargons that are being used these days, to confuse us and employees too. As they say, if you can’t convince, confuse them 😉 Let me take this opportunity to just say this : HR = HUMAN Resource “As long as we have Humans on earth (Soon Mars), they would need HR” That’s a BOLD statement right? Well, that’s the need of the hour and a fact too.

So, enough of convincing (Not Confusing) you all. Following post is all about getting to know the pulse of passionate working professionals about their views on “The Bold New HR”. This is an interesting theme that SHRM India has come up with this year for their Annual Event.

Let’s get started. There were just 3 questions that were asked to the audience and all they had to do was cast their vote. There were NOJARGONS used, nor was it an alien language, it was pure simple and to the point questions. Here you go:

Now that the results are out, I’m sure there would be loads of analysis, views, comments and suggestions. Feel free to add in your thoughts in the comments section of the blog. This will also help us as a HR community learn from each other.
