Case Study: Allianz Global Investors Deploys Ceridian Dayforce to Modernize the Necessities of Employing People

What You Need to Know For well over a decade, employers have been ripping out legacy deployments of software for human capital management in favor of superior, cloud-based solutions delivered via software-as-a-service (SaaS). Providing the impetus for their decision to leave these often on-premises solutions behind is, typically, some combination of factors: the desire to emancipate HCM from pernicious inefficiencies, the business rationale to lower IT-related labor expenditure and eliminate expensive yearly maintenance fees, and more. Modern technology for HCM tends to deliver automation that greatly alleviates the administrative burden associated with the last generation of software for HCM. It is unacceptable today to accept highly manual processes in payroll or anything immediately surrounding it—e.g., the human resource information system (HRIS, a.k.a. core HR), time […]

Case Study: Core-Mark International Empowers Its People with Centralized HR Operations Powered by UKG

Organizations employing thousands in staff and spanning thousands of miles in geographic footprint face a dilemma in human capital management. There is no way, really, for a centralized HR function to enjoy absolute, full command and control of every people-related nuance and idiosyncrasy at play at such a company’s many locations, let alone oversee everything from afar, back at headquarters. This should never be the goal anyway. Hardworking staff closest to the action always are in the best position to understand the day-to-day. This report explores an example. A large, dispersed company, Core-Mark International has long operated competitively as a decentralized organization. Even so, Core-Mark wanted greater centralization of HCM—not to exercise unnecessary control over the company’s many locations in North America (which were doing […]

UKG Spring HR and Payroll eSymposium | Brent Skinner Presentation: Concrete and Abstract HCM: You Need Both

3Sixty Insights’ Brent Skinner presents Concrete and Abstract HCM: You Need Both (previously recorded during UKG’s Spring HR and Payroll eSymposium on May 13th). HCM delivers two benefits to employers. One is concrete, the gains in productivity and efficiencies that finance appreciates. The other is abstract, the impact on employee satisfaction. All areas of HCM bring both these benefits. Even payroll. Yet, ever since the invention of HR, we have insisted on measuring HCM from a concrete perspective. This leaves half the story of HCM untold—and HR a cost center. Businesses are finally figuring this out, fortunately. Look at the focus on employee experience that work-from-home has inspired. Look at the merger of Ultimate Software and Kronos, which marries technologies for concrete and abstract HCM […]

3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat with Ahmad Noordin, Senior Director of Human Resources at Core-Mark International

For this, the latest episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat, Core-Mark International Senior Director of Human Resources Ahmad Noordin joined us. Responsible specifically for systems, payroll and people analytics at Core-Mark, Amhad is also a member of our Global Executive Advisory Council. During our chat, he and I discussed the many factors employers must consider when attempting to bring order to critical aspects of human capital management at a geographically dispersed, decentralized organization. A Fortune 250 company, Core-Mark is one such entity, a behind-the-scenes supplier to thousands of convenience stores across North America. When thinking about centralizing certain HCM functions at an organization that services a broad geographic footprint and possesses a commensurate physical presence to accommodate this, Noordin says it’s important to understand that […]
