3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Thomas Cielak, Vice President of HR Operations at Allianz Global Investors

We welcome Tom Cielak to this episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast. Tom and I met several years ago to discuss his team’s use of Ceridian Dayforce when he was director of HR operations at ACCO Brands. He later joined global asset management firm Allianz Global Investors, in mid-2018, as its vice president of HR operations.

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 […]
