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 […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Melissa Swisher, Chief Revenue Officer at Socrates.ai

For this episode of the #HRTechChat, our guest was Melissa Swisher, chief revenue officer of Socrates.ai. To say Socrates.ai is an artificially intelligent chatbot to tie together various domains of the enterprise software ecosystem is probably the most straightforward description.  The description implies only a small sliver of Socrates.ai’s potential application. Some of these domains themselves may have chatbots specific to various proprietary software, and Socrates.ai an draw information from it all. As Melissa elaborated during our chat, Socrates.ai “is an employee experience platform. Think of it as an experience layer” that hews to employees’ preferences. My take is this: Think of it as a prosthetic to facilitate a unified experience in employee self-service as this pertains not just to staff’s employment, but to anything […]

Whole Brain HCM: Knocking Down Software Silos and Solving for Industries

Before discussing human capital management, let’s discuss the C-suite. There’s a domain of the C-suite fixated on orderliness, efficiencies, productivity, and mathematical measurement, and there’s a domain galvanized by people, creativity, inspiration, and emotionality. The first is the C-suite’s left brain, and the other is its right brain. For organizational success, the economics of our day demand all these preoccupations. Someone on the spectrum of autism may bring much indispensable, focused, unique value to a mission-critical project, yes. An artist may also. But an organization’s leadership singularly focused in just one of these or other ways falters. The C-suite that concentrates an inordinate portion of its energy in the proclivities of the left brain or the right will fail to function as a brain should—as […]
