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 […]

benefitsPRO – Getting leaders to think differently about talent

Although history contests the attribution of this quote to Albert Einstein, I think we can all agree there is no doubt in the essence of its truth: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Yet even with the lessons learned during the pandemic, many managers are applying the exact same hiring criteria that they did before: What technical skills does the external or internal candidate possess? How many years of experience do they have? Did they graduate from a prestigious university? It’s practically painful to watch the same tired tactics applied, knowing the outcomes will not be better. The pandemic redefined the workforce During the pandemic, over 20 million jobs were eliminated during a two-month period in 2020. […]

UKG Spring HR and Payroll eSymposium | Brent Skinner Presentation: Concrete and Abstract HCM: You Need Both

3Sixty Insights’ Brent Skinner presents Concrete and Abstract HCM: You Need Both (previously recorded during UKG’s Spring HR and Payroll eSymposium on May 13th). HCM delivers two benefits to employers. One is concrete, the gains in productivity and efficiencies that finance appreciates. The other is abstract, the impact on employee satisfaction. All areas of HCM bring both these benefits. Even payroll. Yet, ever since the invention of HR, we have insisted on measuring HCM from a concrete perspective. This leaves half the story of HCM untold—and HR a cost center. Businesses are finally figuring this out, fortunately. Look at the focus on employee experience that work-from-home has inspired. Look at the merger of Ultimate Software and Kronos, which marries technologies for concrete and abstract HCM […]

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 […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Ahmad Noordin, Senior Director of Human Resources at Core-Mark International

For this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat, Core-Mark International Senior Director of Human Resources Ahmad Noordin joined us. Responsible specifically for systems, payroll and people analytics at Core-Mark, Amhad is also a member of our Global Executive Advisory Council. During our chat, he and I discussed the many factors employers must consider when attempting to bring order to critical aspects of human capital management at a geographically dispersed, decentralized organization. A Fortune 250 company, Core-Mark is one such entity, a behind-the-scenes supplier to thousands of convenience stores across North America. When thinking about centralizing certain HCM functions at an organization that services a broad geographic footprint and possesses a commensurate physical presence to accommodate this, Noordin says it’s important to understand that […]
