NEW DELHI: Tech Mahindra, a digital transformation and consulting company Tuesday launched K2, the first Human Resource (HR) Humanoid for its Noida Special Economic Zone Campus in Uttar Pradesh in India.
“K2 will take over the routine HR transactions to provide constant assistance to the HR team in creating an enhanced employee experience,” the company in a statement said.
Early this month, Tech Mahindra introduced its first HR humanoid in its Hyderabad campus.
The company added that K2 leverages state of the art Artificial Intelligence technology and initiates a conversation without any need for wake-up commands.
“In today’s digital era, the changing talent landscape is making it imperative for organisations to not just be customer focused, but more ‘human experience’ centric. At Tech Mahindra, we are focused on leveraging technology to further enhance human experiences by making them more personalized and meaningful,” Harshvendra Soin, Chief People Officer, Tech Mahindra said.
K2 can address general and specific HR-related employee queries as well as handle personal requests for actions like providing payslip, tax forms, and will enable the HR team to focus on other important areas for employee development.
The Indian company has already implemented an Artificial Intelligence-based Facial Recognition System to register the attendance of employees that has drastically reduced the time spent by an associate in updating the timesheet.
