Debbie Tuel - Symphony Talent - Chief Joy Officer

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Debbie Tuel, Chief Joy Officer at Symphony Talent

This one has been in the queue for a while. Earlier this summer, I had the distinct pleasure of speaking with Debbie Tuel. It was the day ahead of Symphony Talent‘s annual user conference. Fittingly, Debbie found herself doing this episode of #HRTechChat from a very cool brewery adjacent to event preparations. In February 2021, Debbie became chief joy officer at Symphony Talent. When I first spoke with Debbie, not long after she’d landed the new position, I assumed hers was a job in the vein of chief people officer or chief culture officer. As it turns outs, this is not an HR role. Debbie’s charter is to advocate for Symphony’s core message, the idea that talent acquisition should be joyful. Talent acquisition should indeed […]

The Road to Global Payroll

The road to global payroll is paved with reactions. Let’s add that it’s paved also with good intentions. We all know where those lead, and an unaddressed global payroll process won’t exactly take you there, but the ride can be rough. This is why, for most organizations, the journey to well-sorted global payroll is long and winding — and bumpy. It is the exceedingly rare employer that sets the table to process global payroll in an efficient way the very first time the need to process global payroll arises. This is what I’ve learned, anyway, from lengthy discussions with executives in this industry. No, almost to the very last one, organizations that become global pretty much never outsource it promptly; instead, they do their best, […]

Nate Smith - Lever

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 […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Mitch Zenger, Founder of Synctrics

The latest guest on the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat is Mitch Zenger, founder of Synctrics and member of our Global Executive Advisory Council (GEAC). Mitch brought to this episode a wealth of wisdom culled from decades of successful, high-profile work in executive coaching and team building. The HCM industry and professions gathered around it speak in depth and widely about the pressing need to get better at producing and interpreting data that enables employers to make better decisions in forming teams that will operate in harmony. To achieve this, there is an urgent need to pull in big data sets produced with modern psychometric models. As if this weren’t enough of a challenge to achieve this pressing goal, however, there is a similarly urgent need to […]

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 #HRTechChat: iCIMS Insights “Class of 2021 Report”

Joining me for this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast, were two guests from iCIMS: Rhea Moss, director of data insights and customer intelligence, and Nicole Tucker, manager of talent acquisition. Together, we delved into the recently published “Class of 2021 Report.” Drawing on data from a survey “conducted among 500 U.S. human resource or recruiting professionals, 500 U.S. college seniors, 250 U.K. college seniors, and 250 France college seniors between April 9 and April 23, 2021,” iCIMS Insights explored the expectations and hopes that this year’s college graduates have for their first professional jobs. In the year that was 2020, industries of most stripes welcomed much discussion — and took much action — around bolstering and improving the employee experience. […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Mike Erlin, CEO and Co-Founder of AbilityMap

Mike Erlin, co-founder and CEO of AbilityMap and member of the 3Sixty Insights Global Executive Advisory Board, has the esteemed distinction of being the first-ever repeat guest on #HRTechChat. In the previous episode with Mike, we dove into the deep end of psychometrics, which have advanced considerably since the old days of Myers-Briggs (considered for many years now a largely ineffective instrument). In this, the latest episode, we went down the rabbit hole to ponder the future impact of artificial intelligence in hiring and human capital management generally. It’s of paramount importance and urgent, we agreed, that humans develop and apply the soundest psychometrics possible to the evaluation and hiring of people, lest AI eventually apply its own and, possibly, prioritize profits and cost containment […]
