3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Ahmad Noordin, Senior Director of Human Resources at Core-Mark International

For this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat, Core-Mark International Senior Director of Human Resources Ahmad Noordin joined us. Responsible specifically for systems, payroll and people analytics at Core-Mark, Amhad is also a member of our Global Executive Advisory Council. During our chat, he and I discussed the many factors employers must consider when attempting to bring order to critical aspects of human capital management at a geographically dispersed, decentralized organization. A Fortune 250 company, Core-Mark is one such entity, a behind-the-scenes supplier to thousands of convenience stores across North America.

When thinking about centralizing certain HCM functions at an organization that services a broad geographic footprint and possesses a commensurate physical presence to accommodate this, Noordin says it’s important to understand that balance is critical. Satellite offices bring much to the table in terms of boots-on-the-ground intelligence on what works, and what doesn’t. At the same time, the HR department absolutely needs deep visibility into activity such as, for example, compensation planning — whose UKG module Noordin and his team are presently implementing. And, workforce-related compliance overall must hew centrally lest the organization lose control of it entirely — and suffer the risk.

Our conversation was wide-ranging, and we got quite introspective as to the role and mission of HCM. Be sure to watch the video.
