3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Doug Dennerline, CEO of Betterworks

“The annual performance review process is pretty broken,” says Doug Dennerline, CEO of Betterworks and our latest guest on the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast. “It was created seventy years ago for hierarchical organizations,” which means it’s mismatched to manager-employee dynamics at most organizations today, according to Doug. His credentials and past experience leading well-known vendors in our space are formidable and lent gravitas to our discussion. And I happen to agree with him wholeheartedly. Years ago, in a previous professional life, I wrote about “a coming mass extinction in human capital management.” A result of advances in technology spurring an evolution in attitudes around how best to get the most out of employees, chief among the coming casualties would be the conventional, traditional annual […]

Case Study: Crescent Community Health Center Sees Significant Efficiencies in Implementing and Expanding its isolved Deployment

What You Need to Know Part-and-parcel of any HR function is, usually, a daunting volume of pressing administration and attendant risk mitigation necessary to managing the employment of people. If an HR department ever manages to lessen these activities’ tendency to monopolize practitioners’ day-to-day workload, the department’s leaders can begin to turn their focus to strategic concerns—namely, helping to ensure positive employee sentiment, the key ingredient driving improvements in the retention of employees, greater employee engagement and productivity, and more. Furthermore, smaller businesses stand much to gain from moving into modern software for human capital management—away from the low-tech or no-tech circumstances in which most of them begin their journey in HR (3Sixty Insights 3SICS21122 – Central Minnesotan Kensington Bank Reports Success in Implementing and […]

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 […]

Anatomy of a Decision: Engagedly Helps Customers Provide and Manage Modern, Positive Employee Experience

What You Need to Know It has long been understood that employee experience is critical to a company’s success. However, companies that prioritized employee experience over risk mitigation and revenue increases were few and far between — until recently. The mass exodus from the office to remote and hybrid work environments has rendered the link between employee experience and company performance undeniable. This sudden shift left business leaders and human resources practitioners urgently solving complex challenges like maintaining productivity in an uncertain time. Over time, these shifts have created a competitive candidates’ market that highlights the powerful influence of employee satisfaction on retention. A critical component of employee satisfaction is engagement. An engaged employee is a productive and dedicated employee who will serve a company […]

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 […]

Even as parts of the world return to a state resembling normal, the fallout from the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold.

The unprecedented nature of this worldwide disaster renders its effects unpredictable, and as we march into the future, those effects continue to develop in ways we could only have guessed. Pandemic lockdowns had an immediate and marked effect on work. Who could or should go to work, where that work took place, how it was done—these work life fundamentals changed overnight for the majority of the population. Had lockdowns lasted only two weeks, as first predicted in those optimistic […]
