Human Resources and ChatGPT: Next Generation Employee Management

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

Human Resources is a function that manages all processes, policies and strategies regarding an organization's employees. The conventional approach to managing the human resources process is through manual methods. Human resources departments often use manual processes to handle issues such as recruitment, payroll and personnel affairs, employee development, and performance management. Therefore, the human resource management process is costly and time-consuming.

With the advancement of technology, as in many sectors, human resources departments also make changes in the execution systems of their processes. As we mentioned in our 2023 HR Trends article, companies have recently started to use artificial intelligence technologies to advance these processes efficiently.

It is thought that artificial intelligence technologies such as ChatGPT can create a great change in many sub-areas such as selection and placement, performance management, and employee development. In this article, we will talk about how ChatGPT can be used in human resources processes.
