3Sixty Insights Monthly Recap | November 2021

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 […]

The following pages focus on their strategies and tactics in supporting learning in general and a return to work specifically. Each has solved for significant challenges in protecting the employee experience and preserving productivity as the world of work moved through the initial stages of a pandemic that rattled these concepts to their core.

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 […]

3Sixty Insights Monthly Recap | March 2021

Recent Research: Case Study: Paycor and Partner Spark Hire Empower Affordable Housing Developer’s Recruiting Efforts 3Sixty Insights set out this year to explore several phenomena in human capital management and the technology for it. The employer’s experience covered here provides a case-in-point of interplay between a few of these. Point Solutions: Usual Suspects, Atypical Origins Vendors of full suites for HCM have made significant strides with their end-to-end functionality, feasibly covering the entire spectrum of HR and related needs. Despite these vendors’ laudable work toward these ends, no full-suite HCM vendor can expect to be all things to all employers. In certain domains of the HCM landscape, the need persists; for some, it is the need for best-of-breed point solutions. 3Sixty Insights has found that […]
