3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Caitlin MacGregor, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Plum.io

For this episode of #HRTechChat, our guest was Caitlin MacGregor, chief executive officer and co-founder of Plum.io. As readers of the 3Sixty Insights blog know, we are convinced that there is a critical link in human capital management between artificial intelligence and psychometrics, and this critical link needs a cacophony of advocacy. The idea is that fast-developing AI for the world of work runs a risk — a huge one, actually — of failing to account for the most important, necessary aspects of humanness. That is, unless we intercede immediately and in a big way. If we don’t, the prospects for humans in the future of work might not be too good. To be clear, I am hopeful. Caitlin and I went into some depth […]

Paying and Getting Paid — The Future Is Already Out of the Barn

“I want it all, and I want it now!” belted the late, great Freddie Mercury on a criminally underrated song by the rock band Queen. Was he channeling typical first world consumers and employees from some four decades into the future? He might as well have been. People these days, not all of them want it all, truly, but most seem to want whatever it is they do want, now. They expect every accommodation. Leeway and speed are what they want. They want what they buy to arrive as soon as possible. They want to pay in the easiest way available, in a way most accommodating to their needs and wants. And they want the pay they’ve earned so far, right now — not in […]

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 […]

Case Study: Allianz Global Investors Deploys Ceridian Dayforce to Modernize the Necessities of Employing People

What You Need to Know For well over a decade, employers have been ripping out legacy deployments of software for human capital management in favor of superior, cloud-based solutions delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS). Providing the impetus for their decision to leave these often on-premises solutions behind is, typically, some combination of factors: the desire to emancipate HCM from pernicious inefficiencies, the business rationale to lower IT-related labor expenditure and eliminate expensive yearly maintenance fees, and more. Modern technology for HCM tends to deliver automation that greatly alleviates the administrative burden associated with the last generation of software for HCM. It is unacceptable today to accept highly manual processes in payroll or anything immediately surrounding it—e.g., the human resource information system (HRIS, a.k.a. core HR), time […]
