Case Study: Colt Technology Services Continues to Accrue Efficiencies in Global Payroll with Longtime CloudPay Deployment

What You Need to Know Perhaps nothing defines the first two decades of the 21st century so much as globalization. Well before the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated these trends, we were already seeing unprecedented growth in the number of companies operating worldwide and finding that job markets and workforces were no longer limited by geographical barriers. There are now hundreds of thousands of multinational companies in business, and each one needs a way to pay its employees, wherever they are in the world. In the old days, this meant retaining local service providers in every region where even a single employee was based—the only way to ensure compliance with, for example, regional tax and year-end processing requirements. Aside from the obvious administrative challenges that naturally occur […]

Research Note: Outsourcing Global Payroll: The Impact on Data Security & Compliance

Payroll is a mission-critical activity. Personal fulfillment and career advancement are important, but for most people the main reason they go to work is for a paycheck. Get it wrong, and the ramifications can be swift and bruising. Nearly half (49 percent) of the workforce is willing to tolerate just two problems with their paycheck before beginning a new job search, according to The Workforce Institute at UKG. This is probably because 69 percent of individuals would experience financial difficulty if their paychecks were delayed for a week, according to results from a 2020 survey conducted by the American Payroll Association. It’s a phenomenon other data corroborate. Nearly four-fifths (78 percent) of the workforce lives paycheck-to-paycheck to make ends meet, according to CareerBuilder, whose findings […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Melissa Swisher, Chief Revenue Officer at Socrates.ai

For this episode of the #HRTechChat, our guest was Melissa Swisher, chief revenue officer of Socrates.ai.

My take is this: Think of it as a prosthetic to facilitate a unified experience in employee self-service as this pertains not just to staff’s employment, but to anything […]

Whole Brain HCM: Knocking Down Software Silos and Solving for Industries

Before discussing human capital management, let’s discuss the C-suite. There’s a domain of the C-suite fixated on orderliness, efficiencies, productivity, and mathematical measurement, and there’s a domain galvanized by people, creativity, inspiration, and emotionality. The first is the C-suite’s left brain, and the other is its right brain. For organizational success, the economics of our day demand all these preoccupations. Someone on the spectrum of autism may bring much indispensable, focused, unique value to a mission-critical project, yes. An artist may also. But an organization’s leadership singularly focused in just one of these or other ways falters. The C-suite that concentrates an inordinate portion of its energy in the proclivities of the left brain or the right will fail to function as a brain should—as […]
