Leaders from a major multinational luxury fashion brand joined us for this episode of the 3Sixty Insights #HRTechChat video podcast: Chief People Officer Abigail Wilmore and Vice President of Global People Operations Jay Barrett, both members of our Global Executive Advisory Council. This introduction is shorter than the usual. Our guests did a great job of describing their challenges and success in detail, and I encourage readers to view the episode. The fashion retailer has found immense value in Workday’s solutions as an indispensable tool to support and protect its employee experience over the course of the now nearly two-year-old pandemic. Abigail and Jay explained why this is so — and how it all came to be. Had they and their team kept the disparate, […]

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.

Ironically, one of the perennial leaders in the space is one of the biggest purveyors of “you only need one” ERP/Finance solutions talking out the other side of their mouth—the 800-pound gorilla that is SAP—calling into constant question whether there can ever be a single, central solution to any company’s ERP/Finance needs.

Salesforce Further Infiltrates HCM with Acquisition of Slack

Enter a highly infectious virus. To slow its spread, institute widespread lock-down orders. In tandem, order office employees to work from home and staff usually in the field to embrace unfamiliar, hybrid onsite-offsite schedules. Mix in a healthy dose of confusion to accompany this massive disruption to the heretofore expected way of doing things. Before 2020, collaboration tech was already the functionality all the cool companies had. It has suddenly become the must-have for just about any company as we approach 2021. Most nooks and crannies of the business could use effective applications for collaboration right now. Employees, customers, partners, prospects and other stakeholders need efficient, effective means, stat, to communicate, cooperate and coordinate. But end-to-end systems for the entire enterprise or silos of it […]
