Anatomy of a Decision: Family Service Rochester Elects to Partner With AssetHR and Implement isolved

What You Need to Know Many industries have struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic: supply chain issues, the Great Resignation, and ongoing shifts between remote and on-site work have plagued the majority of companies in nearly every field. The healthcare industry has had it worse than most. There are simply not enough qualified medical professionals to meet the global need. Ironically, just as work-life balance is gaining broad acceptance as a critical element of mental health, it has become nearly impossible for anyone working in healthcare to attain. With rampant burnout industry-wide, healthcare organizations are struggling with retention, and even the most well-intentioned are hard-pressed to improve the employee experiences they’re able to provide in the circumstances. A recent study conducted by isolved found that 36 […]

Analyst Insight: Ceridian Dayforce Matures Into Global Provider of Disruptive Innovation in Its Core Competencies and the Future of Work

What You Need to Know Acquisitions and other developments this past year show Ceridian maturing into a bona fide global provider of technology for human capital management. Leadership has positioned Ceridian to continue delivering disruptive innovation for the future of work and in the company’s core competencies, workforce management and payroll. Acquisitional Strategy and Expansion of the Global Footprint Successful vendors of this heft usually have well-thought-out acquisitional strategies. Going back to the timely acquisition, back in April 2012, of Dayforce itself, Ceridian’s approach to mergers and acquisitions has been savvy. The strategy of late appears to be twofold in nature. It’s evident that complementing the service suite from a technological standpoint has been a primary motivating factor. For example, with the acquisition of Ideal, […]

HR Tech Alliance - Town Hall Cornerstone Acquisition

HR Tech Alliances Town Hall | Cornerstone’s Acquisition of EdCast with Brent Skinner of 3Sixty Insights

Brent Skinner, our co-founder and HCM practice lead, was recently the featured guest on HR Tech Alliances’ Weekly Town Hall. During his appearance, he shared his thoughts on the following: This month’s acquisition of EdCast by Cornerstone brings many benefits to both vendors. The most significant benefit, however, is the one this acquisition, once complete, brings to the market itself: the industry’s first mature end-to-end future-of-work learning suite from a single vendor. Once again, we see that Cornerstone is a bona fide agile 800lbs gorilla in corporate learning, equipped with all the fixings that modern on-the-job learning and career development necessitate: AI, machine learning LXP, LMS, content, etc. Other solution providers in learning, even those who play just around its edges, must now figure out […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with James Norwood, Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer of isolved

Consider: It’s not necessarily that an employer has a performance management problem or, say, a learning management system problem. We must strive to marshal the discrete domains of human capital management, the silos, as one multidisciplinary instrument to solve employers’ people-related needs and challenges. This is the high-level strategic value in industry-specific and industry-tailored suites for HCM, in my opinion. They help us think about HCM more holistically. They help vendors and users alike of technology for HCM break free from silo-think. There’s plenty additional value, as well, for the industries these tailored HCM suites address. Software-as-a-service provider isolved recently launched People Cloud for Healthcare Services, a version of its HCM software suite exclusively for employers in health and medical services. To discuss the new […]

The following preview delves into the first of these, the title of this report. Background The idea that HCM is equal parts concrete and abstract resonates with stakeholders across the profession of HR and among creators and advocates of HCM technology for conventional applications and at the very edge and frontiers of the management of the employment of people (3Sixty Insights BWSRN2142 – Concrete vs. Abstract HCM: The Power of “And,” April 2021).
