CEOs, com­pa­ny owners in busi­ness reg­u­larly exhort the impor­tance of effec­tive per­for­mance man­age­ment for employees — the act of engag­ing with an employ­ee to review their ongo­ing work­place per­for­mance and devel­op­ment. An effec­tive per­for­mance man­age­ment sys­tem requires com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion from the human resources depart­ment, man­agers and employ­ees which with a larger number of work force is not always possible. To overcome these gaps, companies are accommodating new trends to robotize time-consuming HR tasks. Today, HRM systems are no longer stiffly designed tools to carry out menial work. Instead, they are powered by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning technologies making HR functions – recruiting, performance management – simpler and more efficient.
