Joining me for the #HRTechChat video podcast is Rachel Jordan. At Unit4, provider of business software for human capital management and enterprise resource planning, as well as financial planning and analysis, Rachel is vice president of HCM product management. Just like several of her fellow relatively new additions to leadership at Unit4, Rachel has a strong a pedigree in the industry. Unit4 is a vendor keen on finding the best ways to align and combine HCM, ERP and FP&A. The possibilities are intriguing, and you’ll be hearing more about these from 3Sixty Insights as we stroll through the second half of 2022. Think of this episode of the podcast as an appetizer. HCM technology (including the ethos behind it) has evolved drastically over the past […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Maurik Dippel, Co-Founder and CEO of CircleLytics

Technology has advanced to the point where we don’t really have to subject ourselves to the inflexibility of a number of traditional, conventional practices anymore, in human capital management. One of these is our approach to measuring employee engagement and collecting employee feedback. Technology has evolved. We can dive much deeper now and achieve several objectives at once. We have much more at our disposal now than just one-to-many surveys set to quarterly, twice-annual or yearly cadences. “We’re finding that a lot of the old ways, the conventional or traditional ways of doing things, just don’t cut it,” says Maurik Dippel, our guest for this episode of the #HRTechChat video podcast. Annual employee engagement surveys and the like just aren’t “up to the to the […]

Research Agenda: Human Capital Management 2022

Many of the following themes for 2022 in human capital management build on the idea that every aspect of HCM has concrete and abstract expressions (3Sixty Insights BWSRN2142 – Concrete vs. Abstract HCM: The Power of “And,” April 2021)—easily measurable, tactical impacts (concrete), and less easily measurable, strategic impacts (abstract) all in the end affecting employee sentiment and, therefore, organizational success. This year’s themes also reflect the idea that advances in technology and in attitudes about HCM’s charter are blurring the lines between conventional silos of HCM. You cannot do performance management well anymore without combining it with better collaboration technology and a modern learning management system (LMS), for example. Even the long-ago newfangled term talent management has all but slinked away, replaced by notions […]

Leaders from a major multinational luxury fashion brand joined us for this episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast: Chief People Officer Abigail Wilmore and Vice President of Global People Operations Jay Barrett, both members of our Global Executive Advisory Council. This introduction is shorter than the usual. Our guests did a great job of describing their challenges and success in detail, and I encourage readers to view the episode. The fashion retailer has found immense value in Workday’s solutions as an indispensable tool to support and protect its employee experience over the course of the now nearly two-year-old pandemic. Abigail and Jay explained why this is so — and how it all came to be. Had they and their team kept the disparate, […]

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 […]

Research Preview: COVID-19, WFH, and the Long View: Can HCM Protect the Employee Experience?

What happens when human capital management catches COVID-19? Late last year, we asked the question in our 2021 Research Agenda (3Sixty Insights BWSAG20101 Research Agenda 2021: Human Capital Management, October 2020). And, all last year and this, we saw the acute symptoms. Employers that didn’t have to shut down entirely transitioned by necessity to companywide work-from-home or hybrid arrangements. Organizations quickly learned they hadn’t properly anticipated or planned for the now well-documented, related challenges—of which there are many. Now, however, the aid of hindsight shows us that COVID-19 just may have provided a lasting boon to the employee experience—specifically to the idea that the employee experience matters and cannot be ignored. This may seem odd to contemplate. Never mind that it took a pandemic and […]

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 […]
