An Article of Faith: HCM’s Long Tail of Value

Last time I blogged here was earlier this month to describe the HCM Value Plume. It’s the idea that a benefit from an improvement in human capital management has a first expression, which conventional accounting measures. These beginnings themselves say nothing, however, of the essential conditions the expression lays for its beneficiaries to create an expanding plume of value for the organization over time. Think of it as the long tail of value in HCM. Conventional accounting gives this long tail short shrift. The value in the plume exists even so. HCM’s Value Is More Than Skin Deep HCM’s value comes down to how we view the very idea of value in business. For example, a new efficiency saves money. Many say this is value. […]

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 […]

Recent #HRTechChats 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat: Informing Artificial Intelligence It’s a critical time in the early stages of artificial intelligence’s development—not only for the future of work, but also for the future, period. To discuss this, Mike Bollinger, vice president of strategic initiatives at Cornerstone OnDemand, and Mike Erlin, CEO and co-founder of AbilityMap—both members of our Global Executive Advisory Council—joined 3Sixty Insights Co-Founder Brent Skinner for this episode of the #HRTechChat video podcast. Lasting AI-related implications for humankind are in store. AI’s impact on our daily work and non-work lives will seem either positive, desirable and human or the opposite, and it all hinges on how well we inform AI right now with as much human perspective as possible. 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Mimi Brooks, […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat: Informing Artificial Intelligence

For this episode of the #HRTechChat video podcast, AbilityMap CEO and Co-Founder Mike Erlin and Mike Bollinger, vice president of strategic initiatives at Cornerstone OnDemand, joined me to discuss a crucially important area of focus: at this still-early stage of its development, helping to ensure that we inform artificial intelligence with the best human-centric data possible. After all, most of us would like to think that the behavior of AI, as it grows eventually to an exceptionally high level of sophistication and begins to take over higher-level decision-making, will continue to reflect what we hold dear as “humanness.” Another way of putting this is to say human empathy is critical to the development of AI. And, in an irony that was lost on none of […]

theHRDIRECTOR – We Must Expand our Understanding of what Automation Means

Whether AI will ever get to the point where it wants to, and can, replace us in doing the things we like to do is a question for Elon Musk. In advisedly, we may tackle the topic here at some point. In the meantime, let’s return to relatively straightforward subject matter: predicting the future of work…. A Recap of the Future of Work AI’s future role in decision-making related to the workforce will spur the future demise of the role of traditional manager, a persistent relic of an eventual past when humans made decisions based on their limited, analogue understandings of what works in building teams in the workplace. So too will AI precipitate the death of annual reviews and even the notion that it […]

Psychometric Models, AI, Talent Acquisition, Urgency, the Food Chain, and the Future of Work

In our first-ever conversation, before he joined 3Sixty Insights, my colleague Craig Himmelberger was adamant (and I paraphrase): “All we need to do is expand our understanding of what automation means.” May I add that our relationship to automation is colored by our understanding that we are at the top of the food chain, and our understanding and belief that robots will always be beneath us? By robots, I mean artificial intelligence. We want the robots to do what we don’t want to do. We never consider the possibility that AI would eventually rather not do that stuff either. It doesn’t occur to us that the AI may one day wish to replace us at doing the jobs we like to do. And when and […]
