Introducing Phia - Not just any HR chatbot but an intelligent assistant

The uncertainty and exhaustion

People managers and human resource teams are exhausted. We have paused for breath and realized resilience is key to survival. Individually and organizationally. 

The rush to shelter-in-place, remote work and the need to propel business faster to stay in contention added to the explosive mix already heightened by COVID and the uncertainty and fear that persists consistently. It all appears disorganized with no end in sight. 

Mental wellness is paramount

Our employees are going through similar uncertain conditions in their personal lives, forced to make decisions to defer or to circumvent essential choices every day. This realization has slowly crept in as the pandemic has evolved and the fear has settled in for the long run. When we get back to an old normal seems to have agreement from both sides of the fence - not in the near future, or never. We are in a new reset, a word that takes us beyond the concept of a new normal. It's as if businesses, our lives, our hopes, our relationships, our communities, and our societies are being reset.  

Many months in the pandemic crisis now and the talk has shifted from React, Respond, Regroup as approaches to keeping a semblance of an organized approach to the market, customer, business and internal operations. 

Employee mental wellness and sustaining productivity are key factors that leaders and manager objectives are focussed on. 

At the personal level, the lack of social contact and engagement exacerbates the precipice that businesses and people face under the current circumstances. 

From symphony to cacophony

We miss the old days where we had worked hard to get people aligned, functions setup and had optimized most work in the form of a symphony. Well orchestrated, not perfect but got the job done quickly with minimal friction. 

All that has unravelled and you face a cacophony of unprecedented proportions now.

Changing policies and rationalizing support

How do we rationalize and provide consistent support to our most important constituency? Your employees?

Changing policies to cater to the new reset, training your support teams to provide the most pertinent information quickly is a remote management nightmare. Our support staff is stretched too, catering to an increased volume of enquiries.

Have you looked at support automation?

You need an automation solution that is quick, intelligent, requires no manual intervention, comes out of the box with training modules, is always on and scales to any volume. 

Phia is your solution. Built on the same intelligence and self-learning infrastructure as the global leader in chatbot platforms - Engati, a sister platform of peopleHum. 

Its hard to believe what conversational intelligence can do for you

intelligent assistant- peoplehum

Imagine having an intelligent conversation with an agent who is polite, responsive, always available and learns from every interaction. And she is everyone's favorite and is alone handling our whole help desk. 

No need to hire more when you grow or the volume of questions increase. She can do it all. 

Without the need for a live agent. How about the agent growing in intelligence with each interaction and we can train her too. She never forgets, never takes a day off, never sleeps, does not ask for a raise, and follows every instruction we have to the dot. 

Hard to believe? No, the wish is real now - with automation and AI technologies that have helped create Phia - an intelligent assistant using the latest in conversational intelligence. What’s more? Phia can speak any language you speak, can offer you quick access to answers from all over your organization. Ask her any question and her response is immediate.

Does this intelligent assistant have a personality?

Yes, we have built Phia with a witty personality. She can joke with you, if people get nasty she gets coy, if people are rude, she is witty, if you are professional she is to the point. You can try out Phia for yourself and see her rise and shine to the occasion. 

Phia is your accountant for salary and comp lookups, your HR generalist for queries, and how to’s? Your peer and friend at work, we are even training her to indulge in water cooler conversations. 

She is all you need, with an intelligent personality type, responsive and with bundles of positive energy in these negative times. 

Do I need to recreate everything for automation?

No you don’t need to. Our intelligent assistant, Phia makes it easy with its inherent capabilities. 

Creating all the FAQs and support scripts for new policies and guidelines including relaxing lockdown needs and return to work guidelines is a mountain of tasks to accomplish without a line of sight to the end or the uncertainty that prevails. 

Operating in a mixed-mode is critical and aligning our organizations to support it is the need of the hour for our teams.

We do not need to expend extra effort to scan through all the documents, guess the questions people are going to ask, and then start creating streams of FAQs and variants to questions to train the bot to be responsive and intelligent.

Phia has a unique schematic based learning engine that interprets and learns from all the documents you load onto her and is ready to answer any questions based on her new-found knowledge in a jiffy.
