Research Note: Global Mobility – Strategize for the Employee Experience and Related Organizational Success

What You Need to Know Traditionally, organizations have expanded into other countries in order to engage with new audiences in new ways and diversify perspectives to meet global demands, among other reasons that could vary from cost control, employee satisfaction and speed to market. What’s less traditional, but has been brewing for years, is the emergence of a borderless workforce. Catalysts precipitating this most viscerally have been advancements in technology to support payroll, compliance, employee communication, hiring, and collaboration across international organizational footprints that are vast. An even greater factor has been so-called economic globalism. In tandem to all this, attitudes over the idea of a borderless workforce have fallen in line, largely in support of the trend. Against this backdrop, the response of employers […]

Research Note: The Next Era of Organizational Restructuring: What We Can and Should Do Differently

Simply mentioning the phrase “organizational restructuring” brings to mind images of employee layoffs, organizational chaos, and loss of valued work relationships.  Restructuring, like dental surgery, is one of those things we want to avoid but at times is necessary to prevent even worse pain and suffering. And if economic predictions about a potential recession in 2023 prove true, it will become more common over the coming months resulting in layoffs in other industries in addition to the 200,000+ that have recently occurred in the technology industry. Restructuring is often forced upon companies by economic constraints, but even when it is necessary, companies still have considerable control over how it is done and the long-term impact it has on the organization, employees and former employees.

What You Need to Know The modern workplace is becoming increasingly competitive, with employees having more options than ever before when it comes to where and how they choose to work.

Research Note: Betterworks Helps University of Phoenix Replace Annual Performance Reviews With Everyday Performance Development

Old ways of carrying out performance management involve a rigidity, an inflexibility and level of formality. The limitations of standard-issue software for it, typically a part of end-to-end suites for human capital management (HCM), have generally reinforced all of this to encourage and perpetuate an ineffective, annual approach to assessing employees’ performance. The focus is top-down assessment, and the treatment of employee performance has ultimately turned into a policing exercise that people have come to dread. Historically, this has delivered little value to the company and always been at odds with the earnest intent most organizations have in assessing their employees’ performance: to promote better performance in a positive way (3Sixty Insights 3SIAG2214 – “The 3Sixty Insights Human Capital Management Themes for 2022,” January 2022).

Research Note: How Small and Medium-Sized Companies Can be Empowered to Excel at Human Capital Management

What You Need to Know Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) tend to have different needs and requirements than large businesses — as well as different challenges.

Research Note: Outsourcing Global Payroll: The Impact on Data Security & Compliance

Payroll is a mission-critical activity. Personal fulfillment and career advancement are important, but for most people the main reason they go to work is for a paycheck. Get it wrong, and the ramifications can be swift and bruising. Nearly half (49 percent) of the workforce is willing to tolerate just two problems with their paycheck before beginning a new job search, according to The Workforce Institute at UKG. This is probably because 69 percent of individuals would experience financial difficulty if their paychecks were delayed for a week, according to results from a 2020 survey conducted by the American Payroll Association. It’s a phenomenon other data corroborate. Nearly four-fifths (78 percent) of the workforce lives paycheck-to-paycheck to make ends meet, according to CareerBuilder, whose findings […]
