You probably already know that we're in a new era of workplace tools. Chat platforms, like Slack, Microsoft Teams and HipChat have changed the way people communicate at work. They've streamlined where we touch base, opened the door for real-time access to critical information, and helped people be more effective in their roles. Chat isn't just good for messaging though. It's the perfect place for A.I.-powered assistants (like Talla) to streamline and automate monotonous processes for us—and the paperwork, reminders, and repetitive information delivery that comes with employee onboarding is one of the best examples. Below you'll find out how you can easily expedite much of the onboarding process through automated, intelligent communications. All of the content you'll read about can be customized and delivered to you by Talla, right in Slack or Microsoft Teams.
- Ongoing (not annual) performance reviews
- Predictive analytics for employees
- Social media-based hiring
- Continuous online learning for employees
Written in between the lines there is an unspoken edict: Every human resources department should be adopting enterprise chat platforms in 2017.

Now that you've embraced the notion that ChatOps can be applied to Human Resources—as in, HR belongs on Slack as much as software engineers -- the time has come to begin automating some common HR announcements for ChatOps. More bluntly, if Slack, Hipchat, and Flowdock are "email killers," it's time to rebuild those emails no one reads for the chat-based workplace.
ChatOps may be the hottest trend in software DevOps, but your human resources department can leverage many of the core concepts of ChatOps to benefit your entire organization. As we've covered previously, ChatOps is more than just DevOps on Slack. ChatOps is a philosophy that uses the latest messaging platforms (like Slack, HipChat, and Flowdock) to ensure that specific processes are done more effectively and more efficiently.
Even when your organization has a robust and thoughtful training and onboarding program, employees aren't always given some basic tools they need to ramp up quickly. Below, we outline items to add to your new employee onboarding campaign -- as in, a process that occurs over time, not during a one- or two-day crash course -- to make sure every employee gets the help they really need to acclimate quickly.
Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of the Question & Answer Assistant, our second Talla. You can teach Talla the answers to various common questions in your organization, and she can provide the information to your employees directly in Slack. And because she’s trainable, in cases where she doesn’t already have the information an employee needs, she’ll let you know so you can add it for next time.
