theHRDIRECTOR – We Must Expand our Understanding of what Automation Means

Whether AI will ever get to the point where it wants to, and can, replace us in doing the things we like to do is a question for Elon Musk. In advisedly, we may tackle the topic here at some point. In the meantime, let’s return to relatively straightforward subject matter: predicting the future of work…. A Recap of the Future of Work AI’s future role in decision-making related to the workforce will spur the future demise of the role of traditional manager, a persistent relic of an eventual past when humans made decisions based on their limited, analogue understandings of what works in building teams in the workplace. So too will AI precipitate the death of annual reviews and even the notion that it should be people who evaluate people. Similar forces promise the extinction of job titles. The pace of business will accelerate to the point that we may retain these monikers as signs of merit or signposts that help us understand what each other does, but they’ll fall far short of describing our increasingly fluid, variable day-to-day work. Blockchain technology will bring a fundamental power shift to talent acquisition. Innovations here will empower individuals with a continuously […]

Immedis Guest Blog Article | How Payroll Can Provide Concrete and Abstract Value to Organizations

At the end of the last day of the pay period, payroll must, without fail, be processed. The result is a definitive line item in the general ledger. It requires no explanation. It’s absolute, something the accountants understand. And employees understand too. Miss payroll, or get it wrong, and your employee sentiment scores will nosedive. As if this weren’t enough, however, there is much more to payroll; there are, in fact, two sides to payroll—the concrete and the abstract. Both are important. Payroll is more than a number We at 3Sixty Insights speak of the two hemispheres of human capital management. The term we use for anything in the management of an organization’s employees that easily translates to a financially quantifiable number is “concrete HCM.” That would make payroll the most concrete aspect of HCM.

isolved Guest Blog Article | Connect Speaker Spotlight: Analyst Brent Skinner Talks Concrete & Abstract HR

When isolved surveyed 500 HR leaders earlier this year, 92 percent said that employee experience (EX) is a top priority for them in 2021. After all, investing in the communications and capabilities (often digital) that an employee has with their employer before, during and after their tenure can’t be wrong, right? With EX going beyond core HR functions – like reducing payroll errors and improving compliance – there’s often a disconnect between what leaders want – grow their employer brand, engage their employees better – and how to lobby to get investment for it. At isolved Connect in September, 3Sixty Insights Principal Analyst Brent Skinner will break down his independent research on the complications HR is facing when blending two practices: concrete HR and abstract HR. Ahead of the event, we connected with Skinner to learn more about his research, the challenges HR is facing, the opportunities to get the blend right and more.

theHRDIRECTOR – Time to take an employee pulse survey

We’re halfway through March 2021, and the spring fever is extra intense — at least twice as intense as normal, it seems. Think about it. Your employees have been in some form or other of COVID-19 lock-down since late Q1 of 2020, when the novel coronavirus arrived to rob them of perennially much-anticipated fun in the sun, exercise at the gym, spring cleaning, live concerts, and all the rest. And, depending on your industry and the demographics and purpose of your business and workforce, many or most have been working from home all this time. Even work has kept them home, in other words, and whereas some of your staff have enthusiastically embraced this, as they see their home as their own little oasis, others have struggled. Small apartments, home schooling, financial and health issues, and the rest of their lives have conspired to take their toll on your teams. This year the spring fever is a full-throated cabin fever, yes, and brings to bear the force of two long winters and a global pandemic. People want to get out. People need to get out. Wouldn’t this be a good time to take their pulse? Continue Reading Here.
