The Client is a large innovative, knowledge-based energy and utility enterprise serving the Power, Water and Environmental sectors and provides IT solutions for Energy/Hydro industry. With offices in multiple countries, the HR Department handles various activities such as on-boarding, termination, off-boarding etc. Each of these processes comprise of several activities that are repetitive and time consuming but critical for employee satisfaction. To overcome this, we developed and implemented RPA (Robotic Process Automation) for monitoring the employee emails to HR. Data is also collected from the HR system to process the HR related pending tasks andcompleting the task by taking appropriate action.
