“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.
I get an email. It says “Your profile is interesting and we would like to meet you.” I’m sure a system screened my resume and assigned a bot to write me this mail. Soon I realize that the meeting has been scheduled via a Video Call. I sit back and wait for the call. As soon as I get in the call, I see some questions on the screen and all I had to do was answer those. Some were objective and some were subjective. Soon After I answer all the questions, the system says “Thank you Kunjal for your time, here are your results” 🙂 [2 minutes silence!!!!] I was hoping that the bot would say “We will get back to you soon with the results” But that was pretty quick (and impressive).
So, moving on. Fortunately I did crack the interview. I soon got another email inviting me for another round. I was hoping it to be in person. Well, it was in person but there was no person in the office!!!! I was surprised to see a bot moving around and soon it entered a conference room. And another bot at the reception announced my name and I walked into the conference room. To my surprise a Beam Robot welcomed me and asked how my day was going. I was speechless as I could see a human actually interacting with me through this Beam Robot. That person was some 500 miles away from this location, but it was able to move around and interact with me.
Okay, so moving on, the interview did go well and I was hopeful to make it through. To make things more interesting, the Beam Robot escorted me to the reception. Out of habit, I put my hand out for a handshake but it struck to me that it was just a robot!!!! So, after a few days, I received a call (Not sure if it was a bot or a real human) Anyway, I was more keen to know my final result. Fortunately, I did make it through and they offered me a job.
Now the real fun begins 🙂
My first and last day at office!!!!! Yes, you read it right. Just wait till you realize it. I was there for my Induction and it was all done by a Beam Robot. This time, there were real humans behind the screen and I was able to interact with them. Some were based outside the country, some were 300 miles away from this office. So I wondered, where will I be working from. Soon I realized that I was going to work from home. But, my new bot was going to work from this office! So I don’t get a laptop on my day one (or on the last day at the office), I get a beam robot. 😉
PS: I had to draw this line to tell you folks to come back to reality 🙂 Trust me, this is going to be a reality soon. In fact, this has already started in some or the other way. This year’s SHRMTECH16 had this on display and it was actually moving around and interacting with participants at the conference.
So, do you think Future of Recruitment is scary, exciting or boring?! Let me know in the comments below!
