In his research preview, Brent Skinner, co-founder of 3Sixty Insights and lead for the firm’s HCM technology practice, elaborates on his question: Where and How Is HCM Best at Improving the Employee Experience? That everything about HCM is impactful and quantifiable has huge implications vis-à-vis where and how HCM most contributes to negative, neutral or positive employee sentiment, an important measurable expression of the quality of the employee experience. Much of this activity occurs outside HR’s inherent purview, and one implication of this is that most organizational leaders should take HCM seriously and begin practicing it.
Market Alert on this month’s acquisition of EdCast by Cornerstone, which brings many benefits to both vendors. The most significant benefit, however, is the one this acquisition, once complete, brings to the market itself: the industry’s first mature end-to-end future-of-work learning suite from a single vendor. With this move, Cornerstone has become an agile 800lbs gorilla in corporate learning, equipped with all the fixings that modern on-the-job learning and career development necessitate: AI, machine learning LXP, LMS, content, etc. Other solution providers in learning, even those who play just around its edges, must now figure out how to play or contend with Cornerstone.

Anyone who’s followed HCM technology long enough understands: It’s been an odyssean journey for point solutions. What’s the next leg of the trip? To answer this question of where we’re going, we need to consider where HCM is today—and look to the past too. The focus on the quality of the employee experience is stronger than ever. Interestingly, you can thank the pandemic for this—in part, anyway. For well past a decade, professionals in HCM have steadily increased their healthy obsession over gauging and improving employee sentiment. The sudden disruption of COVD-19 forced the rest of the organization to adopt a similar obsession, take a deep, serious look at their employees’ on-the-job experience, and exercise actions to make it as positive as possible.
Brent Skinner, our co-founder and HCM practice lead, was recently the featured guest on HR Tech Alliances’ Weekly Town Hall. During his appearance, he shared his thoughts on the following:
- This month’s acquisition of EdCast by Cornerstone brings many benefits to both vendors. The most significant benefit, however, is the one this acquisition, once complete, brings to the market itself: the industry’s first mature end-to-end future-of-work learning suite from a single vendor. Once again, we see that Cornerstone is a bona fide agile 800lbs gorilla in corporate learning, equipped with all the fixings that modern on-the-job learning and career development necessitate: AI, machine learning LXP, LMS, content, etc. Other solution providers in learning, even those who play just around its edges, must now figure out how to play or contend with Cornerstone.

- Some organizations value the employee experience so much that they name entire divisions of their HR departments after the term. Such is the case with the global high technology company profiled in an analyst insight we published earlier this year. With the deployment of software from ServiceNow, the employer managed to transform a complex HR ticketing process—and, as a result, significantly bolster the employee experience and streamline HR’s associated workload.
