3Sixty Insights had the pleasure of co-presenting a webinar last week with Conrad Wilson, data and analytics lead for Immedis, the Ireland-headquartered provider of technology and support for global payroll. Tiffany Appleby, vice president of global alliances and partnerships at Immedis, was our host and moderator. Our topic really made Brent think: “Payroll Analytics: How global payroll data provides the CFO and CHRO with insights for better decision-making.”
In his latest, Brent Skinner builds on the ideas he first covered in a previous installment of this blog series examining just what, exactly, constitutes value in HCM. Benefits from HCM investments have initial expressions. Conventional accounting measures these easily but struggles to capture HCM’s long-tail benefits. These are the greater, longer-lasting benefits, where the future of work resides. An investment in HCM is a rational article of faith.
Brent Skinner challenges conventional ideas around how to view value in HR and activities close to the employee experience. In his latest blog entry, the first in a new series, he points to an HCM Value Plume and suggests that gains in productivity, the result of accountants viewing newfound efficiencies as the ultimate value in HCM technology deployments, are actually just the ghost notes of greater possibilities in revenue—where HCM’s ultimate value really resides.
As it can be in life, so it can be in business: objectives and charters seemingly unrelated or even at odds with each other can be, as the cliché goes, two sides of the same coin. As the non-cliché goes, they can be complementing hemispheres. It’s often the case in the C-suite, as the Accenture-advocated idea of whole-brain leadership shows us. And it’s certainly the case in human capital management, as 3Sixty Insights’ concept of concrete and abstract HCM shows.
Industry analysts, industry influencers — who are we? What are we. What are the ways to work with us, as a solution vendor? How should solution vendors work with us? These are great questions. There are others. And it is the rare event where analysts and influencers, as panelists, get the opportunity to provide their thoughts on these issues, and directly to an open forum-style audience.
Brent Skinner is co-founder, director and principal analyst of HCM practice at the analyst firm 3Sixty Insights. HCM Technology Report spoke with him about how HR has leveraged technology to run their organization more smoothly, help plan its future, and also about new technologies it might adopt.
In March, Cornerstone acquired the learning experience platform provider EdCast. When announcing the deal, Cornerstone said it hoped to create a “next generation technology blueprint for the future-ready workforce.” Buzzwords aside, the companies, which are expected to continue to operate independently for a time, promised to develop new approaches to experiential learning, content and skill-building, all the while creating a unified and scalable talent infrastructure.
