The National Human Resource Development Network (NHRDN)—a global centre for grooming leaders and the national apex body of professionals committed to promoting the people development movement in India—is leading the next journey for HR leaders to apply a consumer and a digital lens to the HR function. It has announced the launch of an interview bot in strategic partnership with an HR tech startup.
Talking about the initiative, Dhananjay Singh, director general, NHRDN says, “Digital disruption is bound to cause a rise in the number of new companies that master the digital transformation and bring about the demise of those that fail to do so. Building a Digital HR organisation is one way HR professionals can address the issue of a more inclusive performance management review, particularly when a company has a diverse, multigenerational workforce. The launch of NHRDN Interview Bot is aimed at improving the ‘digital index’ of NHRDN. It will also help assess HR professionals in various competitions, while helping them adapt to today’s digital age.”
The National HRD Network will work in collaboration with the startup to use cutting-edge technology to simplify the entire assessment process. It will enable professionals to take interviews from the comfort of their premises using their own devices, at their own convenient time, with a ‘robot interviewer on demand’. This makes the assessment process simple, user-friendly and utilitarian. Further, the startup will also extend its expertise in developing assessment question banks relevant to every segment of the target audience.
