Automation solutions to Human Resources challenges expand their team
Human Resources Intelligence is pleased to announce the expansion of its team with Andrew Murdoch recently starting in the development team.
Andrew brings all of his knowledge and experience to expand the capability of the team and enhance HaRi-Bot’s functionality.
Andrew, a recent Computer Games Technology graduate and Dare Academy 2019 award winner initially worked with HRI through the Summer Challenge project in partnership with Abertay University and the Norman Fraser Design Trust. “My experience at Abertay was not unlike a trial by fire, between coursework with industry clients and opportunities such as Abertay Challenge and Dare Academy I’ve been thrown into invaluable experiences with real responsibilities and deadlines time and time again.
This role is the second partnership for HRI with Abertay University and the Norman Fraser
Norman Fraser Design Trust has a long-established history for supporting local engineering projects and people. The Fund was started in 1968 following an endowment from Norman Fraser, an Arbroath based successful engineer who was passionate about supporting local entrepreneurs to continue engineering innovation for future generations. This collaboration with Norman Fraser and HRI connects and fills a need within the local community.
Louise Rogers, CEO of HRI commented “I’m delighted that the Norman Fraser Design Trust has committed this further funding for an industrial placement with Abertay. My intention, when founding HRI, was to be able to provide opportunities locally. Our partnership with Abertay University and the Norman Fraser Design Trust has enabled this first step and Andrew is a brilliant addition to the team. I'm very grateful to the Norman Fraser Design Trust for their renewed support.”
Abertay Challenge is a student-led design consultancy internship scheme. It offers the experience of leading teams and working with companies and clients in the Tech industry on innovative products.
The brief was to develop a Human Resource Management ChatBot as a business proof of concept. Norman Fraser Design Trust kindly supported the challenge team to work on a 5 week proof of concept ‘sprint’ over the summer. Working with Louise Rogers and Mark Grossi, and supported by Ruth Falconer and Gareth Robinson from SDI and curated by Ken Scott-Brown, the team have produced a response to the brief in the form of a working prototype with art and visualisation concepts.
