Criterion Guest Blog Article: An Under-Performing HR Process Gets Reimagined: Introducing “Immersive Onboarding”

For Context Let’s start with two compelling but also startling data points from credible industry surveys: 30% of new employees voluntarily leave their jobs within the first 90 days 28% of employees do not feel fully connected to their company’s purpose or missionSurvey sources included within the hyperlinks Related to the first research finding, the direct cost of voluntary turnover is well-chronicled, with estimates often approximating one or two times annual salary based on the fully loaded cost of recruiting, lost productivity, etc. These costs are often considerably higher when one considers the likely disruptive effect on other colleagues and business areas. And regarding staff who do not feel meaningfully connected to the mission of their employing organization, they probably also don’t feel connected to […]

Guest LinkedIn Live: Blueprint for keeping your organization agile

  Steve Goldberg, HCM research & advisory, and Jennifer Borun, senior director, analyst relations and strategic engagement of Cornerstone, sat down on LinkedIn Live to discuss how to guide your organization through solving future problems and succeeding in a volatile market. Take one look at the news (or your LinkedIn feed), and you’ll see a lot of talk about market changes and economic shifts. There’s fear and uncertainty about what’s to come. Steve explained that unpredictability and volatility are relative concepts, but the landscape of a pandemic has given these terms a tangible depth and taken uncertainty to a new level. That level, Steve said, is “a period of max fluidity.” Fancy term! But what is “max fluidity”? Think of the supply chain disruptions currently […]

Compliance at the Core: Behind the Scenes at deel

This year, I’m spending more time working with vendors across the HCM technology and services marketplace to understand the key trends and learn more about the modern solutions and innovations focused on advancing how compliance is managed across the HR spectrum. The struggle is real. In HR buyer research, compliance bubbles up consistently as a top challenge for practitioners and a leading driver for HR and payroll-managed services adoption as regulations evolve, introducing new complexities at an accelerated pace. Over half of employers cite mounting concern for solving skills gaps locally and struggling to attract top talent as key obstacles to business transformation and remaining competitive.  These obstacles lead to organizations of all sizes commonly engaging talent beyond their home borders and seeing their footprints […]

Independence Day: A Time to Reflect & Champion Unconditional Freedom for All

This July 4th, Americans across the United States and around the world will pause to enjoy a long weekend with family and friends to celebrate America’s 247th birthday and independence from Great Britain in 1776. While the beloved patriotic summer holiday will no doubt be filled with hot dogs, fireworks, and backyard gatherings to commemorate America’s birthday, it’s an excellent time for us all to pause and reflect on the unparalleled freedom we enjoy and often take for granted. The United States of America has long been a symbol and beacon of freedom, hope, and opportunity for immigrants seeking a better life. A country founded on the core belief that all humans are created equal and endowed with certain unalienable rights — among those being […]

Workday Guest Blog Article: Inflection Point – Enabling Strategy and Organizational Agility With Payroll

The current state of payroll and the future of the critical process and profession is reaching its much-needed inflection point. Prioritizing the critical process and profession as a central element in the broader human capital management (HCM) strategy is vital to enabling organizational agility and elevating the profession from its simple processor stigma to a strategic advisor and center of expertise. So Close…Yet Still So Far Payroll has come a long way from its stone tablet and paper journal roots. Tabulating machines must have seemed like the future in the late 1950s to the few organizations with access to them. Eventually, desktop computers and the internet paved the way for payroll software to change how payroll was “managed.” But payroll largely limped along with inadequate […]

UKG to Acquire immedis: What it Means & Why it Matters

The Big News This past week workforce management and human capital management technology provider UKG announced its intent to acquire immedis, a current UKG Marketplace integration partner and global payroll technology and services provider. While the terms of the deal were not disclosed, it is presumed to be valued above the $575m valuation immedis reported with its most recent funding round; the deal is expected to close within 60 days. The acquisition news makes perfect sense when you consider UKG’s vision and mantra of “Be the One”: one suite of products + one people-first purpose, and one approach to simplifying how it does business. Given the complexity and criticality of managing an agile global workforce, that vision was incomplete without a globally capable payroll solution […]

payfederate Guest Blog: A New Pay Transparency Playbook

Introduction It is common these days for the words ‘trust’ and ‘authenticity’ to be featured in an employer value proposition. After all, they are emblematic of the values underpinning a corporate culture. The reasons for their prevalence are varied, but one could assert this reflects an effort to mitigate workforce sentiments such as a lack of control or lack of feeling valued. These feelings, when present, might well be a function of the Covid era having destabilized or at least disrupted the lives of both employees and businesses. Aside from that challenging set of dynamics, one must also keep in mind that many organizations were already involved in “intentional disruption” when the COVID crisis hit, better known as some form of business transformation. Whether reacting […]
