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 […]

Case Study: Allianz Global Investors Deploys Ceridian Dayforce to Modernize the Necessities of Employing People

What You Need to Know For well over a decade, employers have been ripping out legacy deployments of software for human capital management in favor of superior, cloud-based solutions delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS). Providing the impetus for their decision to leave these often on-premises solutions behind is, typically, some combination of factors: the desire to emancipate HCM from pernicious inefficiencies, the business rationale to lower IT-related labor expenditure and eliminate expensive yearly maintenance fees, and more. Modern technology for HCM tends to deliver automation that greatly alleviates the administrative burden associated with the last generation of software for HCM. It is unacceptable today to accept highly manual processes in payroll or anything immediately surrounding it—e.g., the human resource information system (HRIS, a.k.a. core HR), time […]

Case Study: Core-Mark International Empowers Its People with Centralized HR Operations Powered by UKG

Organizations employing thousands in staff and spanning thousands of miles in geographic footprint face a dilemma in human capital management. There is no way, really, for a centralized HR function to enjoy absolute, full command and control of every people-related nuance and idiosyncrasy at play at such a company’s many locations, let alone oversee everything from afar, back at headquarters. This should never be the goal anyway. Hardworking staff closest to the action always are in the best position to understand the day-to-day. This report explores an example. A large, dispersed company, Core-Mark International has long operated competitively as a decentralized organization. Even so, Core-Mark wanted greater centralization of HCM—not to exercise unnecessary control over the company’s many locations in North America (which were doing […]

The Road to Global Payroll

The road to global payroll is paved with reactions. Let’s add that it’s paved also with good intentions. We all know where those lead, and an unaddressed global payroll process won’t exactly take you there, but the ride can be rough. This is why, for most organizations, the journey to well-sorted global payroll is long and winding — and bumpy. It is the exceedingly rare employer that sets the table to process global payroll in an efficient way the very first time the need to process global payroll arises. This is what I’ve learned, anyway, from lengthy discussions with executives in this industry. No, almost to the very last one, organizations that become global pretty much never outsource it promptly; instead, they do their best, […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Jennifer Ravalli, Head of Marketing at PandoLogic

Jennifer Ravalli was our guest for the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat podcast. Following long stints at ADP and, most recently, iCIMS, Jenn joined PandoLogic in September 2020 to head all marketing efforts. Jenn and I met and first spoke at the Spring 2021 HR Technology Conference & Exposition. It’s when we delved specifically into PandoLogic’s solution, a programmatic job advertising platform with underpinnings in artificial intelligence and available on the iCIMS marketplace. Naturally, this episode of #HRTechChat covers much ground in the areas of AI, the future of work, and more — among our favorite topics at 3Sixty Insights. (Go here and here for our blogging on these ideas.) Jenn sees AI transforming the roles of recruiting (and sourcing, for that matter). […]

Salesforce Further Infiltrates HCM with Acquisition of Slack

Enter a highly infectious virus. To slow its spread, institute widespread lock-down orders. In tandem, order office employees to work from home and staff usually in the field to embrace unfamiliar, hybrid onsite-offsite schedules. Mix in a healthy dose of confusion to accompany this massive disruption to the heretofore expected way of doing things. Before 2020, collaboration tech was already the functionality all the cool companies had. It has suddenly become the must-have for just about any company as we approach 2021. Most nooks and crannies of the business could use effective applications for collaboration right now. Employees, customers, partners, prospects and other stakeholders need efficient, effective means, stat, to communicate, cooperate and coordinate. But end-to-end systems for the entire enterprise or silos of it […]
