HCM Technology Report – Q&A: Where Advanced Technology Leads HR’s Strategic Plan

Brent Skinner is co-founder, director and principal analyst of HCM practice at the analyst firm 3Sixty Insights. HCM Technology Report spoke with him about how HR has leveraged technology to run their organization more smoothly, help plan its future, and also about new technologies it might adopt. When it comes to advanced technology in HR, what’s going on today? Is it still all about AI, or are there other things worth paying attention to? That’s a good question. I think it is a lot about AI. I’m hard pressed to think of something else that is the next best thing after AI. I mean, one thing that you keep hearing about in the periphery is quantum computing, and I don’t profess to have an answer […]

Paying and Getting Paid — The Future Is Already Out of the Barn

“I want it all, and I want it now!” belted the late, great Freddie Mercury on a criminally underrated song by the rock band Queen. Was he channeling typical first world consumers and employees from some four decades into the future? He might as well have been. People these days, not all of them want it all, truly, but most seem to want whatever it is they do want, now. They expect every accommodation. Leeway and speed are what they want. They want what they buy to arrive as soon as possible. They want to pay in the easiest way available, in a way most accommodating to their needs and wants. And they want the pay they’ve earned so far, right now — not in […]

Square Meets the Moment with Afterpay

Square, the digital payments giant co-founded by Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, has this week acquired Australian fintech company Afterpay. The announcement has already made the rounds; plenty of outlets have proffered their own predictions of the effects this acquisition will have on the market. We at 3Sixty Insights see this going far beyond the market moment: we believe that buy-now-pay-later (BNPL) will continue to increase in relevance at the point of sale. By connecting AfterPay directly to purchase transactions, this acquisition has the potential to have a profound and lasting generational effect. Pay and Payments in the Present On-demand pay (ODP) has taken the HR world by storm since DailyPay was founded in 2015. There’s Dayforce Wallet (from Ceridian). Last month, global payroll provider CloudPay […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Jeanniey Walden, Chief Innovation and Marketing Officer of DailyPay

3Sixty Insights welcomed Jeanniey Walden, chief innovation and marketing officer of DailyPay, Inc., to the latest episode of #HRTechChat, where we explored the idea that the act of paying employees is much more than the operational aspects of running payroll. Any employer that solves frustrations related to pay can be exceptionally effective in influencing employees’ feelings and, related, their motivation to be productive. Following are a few of the interesting ideas we covered during our illuminating conversation: The exchange of physical or mental energy for pay is arguably the single most important aspect of employment. Even so, employees have for years experimented or interacted with pay very little on a daily basis. Limitations of technology have been the largest impediment. Mobile technology and social media […]
