Case Study: Office Partners 360 Revolutionizes Its HCM Workflows With Zoho to Scale With Ease and Move Away From Inefficient HR Processes

What you need to know When a company grows, especially when that expansion means new geographies, one of the biggest challenges is ensuring that its business processes, including talent management, not only keep pace but can act as a critical enabler in the expansion. COVID and the impact it had on organizations highlighted similar concerns and problems. While digital transformation presents a solution to many of these challenges and enables many companies to weather the significant issues and roadblocks the pandemic presents, it is only part of the answer. The other part involves the company’s system or software to manage hypergrowth’s HR component. Results come not only in the form of greater efficiencies and attendant time savings, but also, a greater ability to practice empathy. […]

Analyst Insight: Zoho Ex Apps Revolutionize Recruitment and Employee Workflows at Sngular to Deliver Valuable Efficiencies and Data Analytics

What You Need to Know Growth through expansion and, in particular, mergers-and-acquisition (M&A) transactions continues to be a fundamental business objective for businesses across all sectors and industries. In 2021, M&A activity totaled $5.9 trillion globally, breaking previous records. According to market experts, despite a drop in the first half of 2022, pre-pandemic numbers are returning. The rewards of growth by acquisition are considerable, particularly if broadening your services and product offerings becomes a key differentiator, thereby putting you in a much stronger position in the market. However, there are several considerations around expansion through M&A that can cause issues for companies during the integration phase and beyond.

Case Study: isolved Brings Digital Transformation to HR at Skagit County Boys & Girls Clubs

What You Need to Know A typical HR department has a wide variety of responsibilities encompassing what we at 3Sixty Insights term concrete and abstract human capital management (HCM). Concrete HCM refers to the nuts and bolts, such as payroll and timekeeping. These processes are indisputably important, and fundamental to the employee experience, but they are must-haves—baseline boxes that must be checked, not differentiators. Abstract HCM refers to the more human-centric elements of HR, such as employee development and recognition (3Sixty Insights BWSRN2142 – “Concrete vs. Abstract HCM: The Power of ‘And’,” April 2021). These are the differentiators, the features and benefits that not only set a desirable employer apart from the crowd of others vying for the same talent in the same job market, […]

#HRTechChat: Steve Goldberg, HR Industry Analyst, Advisor & Thought Leader

My guest for this episode of #HRTechChat was Steve Goldberg, well-known HR industry analyst, advisor and thought leader. Steve and I were having so many interesting conversations of late, that we decided we’d better lay one of these tracks down on vinyl, so to speak. Steve shared a few ideas around the theme of “opportunities where HR technology can make a difference today and over the next several years,” and here we are…. True to form, Steve got me to thinking about something in a way I’d never considered. It’s loosely related to a concept I encountered many years ago. The idea “is really the byproduct of mashing together the vendor perspective and the customer perspective,” Steve said. From vendors, there’s a standardization of functionality […]

#HRTechChat: Anita Lettink, Author, Payroll Expert, Founder of HR Tech Radar

Anita Lettink was the guest for this episode of #HRTechChat. Many viewers of this video podcast may know Anita from her nearly 20 years in positions of increasing seniority at NGA Human Resources (acquired in 2019 by Alight). Following nearly three years as a senior vice president there, she finally left NGAHR in mid-2020 to found HR Tech Radar and write and publish her book, “How to Select Your Next Payroll: The Ultimate Guide.” Anita is a payroll expert by any calculus, and it was a real pleasure to reconnect and discuss the subject matter of her book in detail.
