Immedis Guest Blog Article: Global Payroll Data and its Importance to the CFO and CHRO

As it can be in life, so it can be in business: objectives and charters seemingly unrelated or even at odds with each other can be, as the cliché goes, two sides of the same coin. As the non-cliché goes, they can be complementing hemispheres. It’s often the case in the C-suite, as the Accenture-advocated idea of whole-brain leadership shows us. And it’s certainly the case in human capital management, as 3Sixty Insights’ concept of concrete and abstract HCM shows. What’s more, one kind of data can be comparably valuable to different stakeholders in the C-suite whose concerns might be seen, alternately, as left-brained vs. right-brained.

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.

The HCM Value Plume

There was a time, before I knew anything about human capital management (or even that the formal acronym “HCM” existed), when I worked writing project proposals for a civil engineering firm. Most of the firm’s projects were environmental. Think Superfund site cleanup, this sort of thing. The firm also responded regularly to requests for proposals regarding the design and construction or responsible decommissioning of wastewater and drinking water treatment plants. At the time, another thing I didn’t know anything about was civil engineering. Necessity is the mother of invention, so I learned what I needed to know. And one thing I learned is this: when the source of a liquefied toxic substance breaches whatever contains it and gets into the ground, the extent of the […]
