Case Study: Central Minnesotan Kensington Bank Reports Success in Implementing and Expanding isolved via Partnership with AssetHR

What You Need to Know Without modern technology for human capital management (HCM) and the advancements in automation it has to offer, HR is unnecessarily inefficient. This inefficiency can be especially pronounced at small organizations, where, typically, nothing at all aside from email, spreadsheets and paper is in place to manage it. It is this inefficiency that usually compels such organizations to seek relief. Here is where many potential pitfalls lurk. Choose the wrong solution, and the organization sets itself up for long-term difficulties in exchange for, possibly, short-term relief. Any organization that finds a trusted partner to help navigate the HCM vendor landscape and choose a capable solution and implement it in a capable way goes a long way in sparing itself future frustration […]

Case Study: Core-Mark International Empowers Its People with Centralized HR Operations Powered by UKG

Organizations employing thousands in staff and spanning thousands of miles in geographic footprint face a dilemma in human capital management. There is no way, really, for a centralized HR function to enjoy absolute, full command and control of every people-related nuance and idiosyncrasy at play at such a company’s many locations, let alone oversee everything from afar, back at headquarters. This should never be the goal anyway. Hardworking staff closest to the action always are in the best position to understand the day-to-day. This report explores an example. A large, dispersed company, Core-Mark International has long operated competitively as a decentralized organization. Even so, Core-Mark wanted greater centralization of HCM—not to exercise unnecessary control over the company’s many locations in North America (which were doing […]

3Sixty Insights Anatomy of a Decision

Channel Fish Anatomy of a Decision SAP Business One

The first decade of the 2000s saw a sea change in IT  spending. Until about 2009, spending oversight was starkly different from what it has become at most companies today. Chief Information Officers were generally happy to sign off on anything that stayed within their budget, so IT departments were free to make the technological and system decisions they thought would be best since they would be supporting that technology should anything go wrong. In the last decade or so, however, there’s been a shift. It’s far more common today for every purchase decision to go through finance and other departments, involving colleagues who may be unfamiliar with the provider or the ultimate use of the system and potentially slowing the adoption process (3Sixty Insights […]

Psychometric Models, AI, Talent Acquisition, Urgency, the Food Chain, and the Future of Work

In our first-ever conversation, before he joined 3Sixty Insights, my colleague Craig Himmelberger was adamant (and I paraphrase): “All we need to do is expand our understanding of what automation means.” May I add that our relationship to automation is colored by our understanding that we are at the top of the food chain, and our understanding and belief that robots will always be beneath us? By robots, I mean artificial intelligence. We want the robots to do what we don’t want to do. We never consider the possibility that AI would eventually rather not do that stuff either. It doesn’t occur to us that the AI may one day wish to replace us at doing the jobs we like to do. And when and […]
