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.

Analyst Insight: Ceridian Dayforce Matures Into Global Provider of Disruptive Innovation in Its Core Competencies and the Future of Work

What You Need to Know Acquisitions and other developments this past year show Ceridian maturing into a bona fide global provider of technology for human capital management.

Josep Elias - CloudPay

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Josep Elias, Chief Strategy Officer at CloudPay

This was an especially illuminating episode of #HRTechChat. Chief Strategy Officer Josep Elias joined our video podcast to discuss the company’s new offering for earned wage access (EWA), CloudPay NOW. EWA is another term for on-demand pay, and CloudPay NOW is “the only earned wage access solution that can be deployed in 130+ countries,” the company’s website notes. Interestingly, CloudPay is bucking the trend in on-demand pay by targeting the entire world (or most of it, anyway). Much of the growth in EWA of late has been in the United States, but EY estimates that “a total of approximately $1 trillion is accrued in employer payroll accounts on any given day,” as noted in a report published in September 2020.
