3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Michael Spataro, Chief Delivery Officer for Legion

For this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast, our guest was Michael Spataro, chief delivery officer for Legion, a provider of advanced technologies for workforce management (WFM). Michael and I enjoyed a wide-ranging, at once practical and philosophical discussion of organizations’ relationship with their hourly workforce in the retail and service industries. Legion’s software excels in helping employers in these industries support a strong, positive employee experience for their hourly staff. In the summer of 2020, Legion published a report sharing the findings of a survey the vendor conducted. Respondents comprised about 500 wage and hourly employees and approximately the same number of managers, all in retail and the service industries. An top-line breakdown of the many findings is available in […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Adriana DiNenno of Infor

Adriana DiNenno was our guest for this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights video podcast. Adriana has an intriguing dual role at Infor. As product manager of Infor People Solutions, she plays a leading role in informing the development of Infor’s solutions for talent in the workforce. She also helped found and co-chairs Infor People Wellbeing, an internal group focused on — as the name implies — supporting positive employee sentiment there. Note that the word is people, not employees. Increasingly, vendors and customers of software for human capital management are officially referring to their employees as their people, a more human term. As co-chair, Adriana had a vision to help create a place where Infor’s people can prioritize their mental health insomuch as […]

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 […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat from Hollywood, Florida at #isolvedconnect 2021

3Sixty Insights is at the Hilton Diplomat in Hollywood, Fla., this week to attend isolved Connect, the vendor’s annual customer conference. So, naturally, we recorded an episode of the #HRTechChat video podcast onsite with Amy Mosher, isolved’s chief people officer, and Lina Tonk, vice president of marketing for isolved. For our chat, we dove deeply into isolved’s recent rebrand, the positive impact this has had on its employees and customers alike, and, as well, isolved’s successful internal use of its own platform to grow its own workforce by 40 percent this year. Earlier, this summer, 3Sixty Insights published a case study delving into the particulars. Download it for free, and, if you’re feeling enterprising, go here to learn all about our case study on Key […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Nate Smith, Founder and CEO of Lever

Nate Smith, founder and CEO of San Francisco–based Lever, joined us for this episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat. Lever’s technology for talent acquisition, as well as the vendor’s philosophy behind finding new hires, helps employers facing complex challenges in reaching their strategic goals identify and woo future employees whose skills are essential to the related tasks at hand. As you can imagine, this made for an interesting podcast. Nate and I first spoke last summer and openly wondered whether it might have been one year exactly to the day that we recorded this episode — which was Monday, July 19. Being a calendar pack rat, I did a search, and it turns out that we were off by just one week. Imagine that. Many […]

Thomas Cielak, VP of HR Operations at Allianz Global Investors

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. This is his current role, and Tom’s team at Allianz Global happens to use Ceridian Dayforce too. Tom is an advocate for the notion that, to be effective in their craft and as an asset to the organization, HR leaders today must become technologists. In today’s environment, where decision-making to buy enterprise software involves a broad variety of stakeholders, the IT department still has a say. The […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Tom Tonkin, Ph.D., CEO at The Conservatory Group

Joining us for this episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat is Tom Tonkin, Ph.D., member of our Global Executive Advisory Council. A former colleague of mine, Dr. Tonkin is now CEO of The Conservatory Group, where he and his team “help executives, middle-managers and sales leaders to self-actualize in their roles.” Dr. Tonkin’s background in technology for the enterprise stretches back many years and includes just shy of two decades at Oracle in a multitude of roles spanning sales, technology enablement, professional services, and more. My conversation with Dr. Tonkin centered on diversity, equity and inclusion. Through his observations, informed partially by his doctoral work, Dr. Tonkin believes several things must happen for DE&I initiatives and ideas to move beyond awareness — frankly, only the […]
