Research Preview: COVID-19, WFH, and the Long View: Can HCM Protect the Employee Experience?

What happens when human capital management catches COVID-19? Late last year, we asked the question in our 2021 Research Agenda (3Sixty Insights BWSAG20101 Research Agenda 2021: Human Capital Management, October 2020). And, all last year and this, we saw the acute symptoms. Employers that didn’t have to shut down entirely transitioned by necessity to companywide work-from-home or hybrid arrangements. Organizations quickly learned they hadn’t properly anticipated or planned for the now well-documented, related challenges—of which there are many. Now, however, the aid of hindsight shows us that COVID-19 just may have provided a lasting boon to the employee experience—specifically to the idea that the employee experience matters and cannot be ignored. This may seem odd to contemplate. Never mind that it took a pandemic and […]

Research Note: Concrete vs. Abstract HCM: The Power of “And”

We launched the 2021 Research Agenda for the human capital management practice area at 3Sixty Insights with an exploration into a new way of looking at HCM. The idea we advanced resonated deeply with vendors and users of HCM technology alike—that HCM has two hemispheres, the concrete and the abstract. To thrive, employers must appreciate and embrace both these understandings of HCM (3Sixty Insights BWSRP20111 Concrete vs. Abstract HCM: A New Way for Organizations to Look at HCM, November 2020). Accountants and others focused on the nuts and bolts of business understand concrete expressions of HCM such as gains in efficiencies and productivity. Others gravitate to abstract expressions of HCM, which comprise employees’ feelings and focus on the tributaries and outcomes of employer culture. Reality […]

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.

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 […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Nicole Roberts, Vice President of People and Culture for MVAH Partners

Nicole Roberts, vice president of people and culture at MVAH Partners, joined 3Sixty Insights for this episode of #HRTechChat. A member of the 3Sixty Insights Global Executive Advisory Council, Nicole started in her leadership role at MVAH a year ago, in March 2020 — just as the flurry of pandemic-related restrictions unfolded in the United States. The disruption profoundly affected the nature of her first several months on the job. On day one, for example, she took over internal employee communications. MVAH, a developer of affordable housing, has 7,000 units under its management across 15 states. The logistics around managing an already dispersed workforce suddenly under unprecedented, unique circumstances were significant and necessitated the expansion of her focus. Amidst all this, Nicole and her team […]
