5 Questions to Ask HCM Vendors Before Selecting HR Technology

Selecting a new HR solution from among the many options on the market can be a daunting task. HR leaders need a way to sort through the choices available to them and identify a solution that will best meet their needs. The question is, how do you wade through the clutter of HCM vendor features and functionality — which all sound the same — and make the right choice?

Competing in an Era of Choice

In today’s complex workplace, employers are struggling to attract, retain, and engage talent with the skill sets required to meet their strategic objectives. At the same time, employees are looking for alternative work arrangements, flexible hours, more control over their time, and a consumer-like work experience.

Robots vs. Reality: Innovative Technology for Today, Not Tomorrow

Today’s headlines would have you believe that robots are taking over financial services. But are they really? While robotic and intelligent process automation (IPA) is a rapidly advancing field, its practical applications in financial services are still surprisingly limited. In a recent PwC Financial Services IPA survey, only 9 percent of respondents reported having IPA bots in production, and many have encountered risk and control issues along the way.

A Unified Approach- The Integration of HCM and Workforce Management

In financial services, you’ve heard them all. Maybe the vendor’s pitch has been 100 percent about technology, positioning itself from day one as the cloud-based, software-as-a-service (SaaS) choice. Or maybe its angle has been that it’s all about the company’s marketplace approach and how it was modeled on the Salesforce app exchange. Other legacy vendors have their own approaches.

The Rise of the Responsive Employee Experience

Modern workers expect the same flexibility and convenience in their professional lives as they have in their personal lives. Sadly, business technologies have historically failed to deliver on this expectation. Organizations then turn to HR professionals and managers to fill the gap, but they can only be in so many places at once. The end result is a lackluster employee experience that causes challenges across the employee lifecycle, from recruitment to retention to performance and more.

Reimagining White-Collar Workforce Management

Too often, organizations have focused their compliance efforts solely on their blue-collar workers, ignoring the significant impact that labor laws can have on the white-collar portion of their workforce. From an entrenched belief that salaried employees shouldn’t have to track their time to the general lack of effective, exempt-focused solutions, many companies find themselves potentially exposed to regulatory risk related to their salaried workforce.

Real Risks, Sensible Solutions Managing Regulatory Compliance with Automated Workforce Solutions

Employee ExperienceEmployment laws represent the largest subject area of all business regulations. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) administers and
enforces more than 180 federal laws. These laws govern workplace activities such as wages and overtime, minimum wages, benefits, safety and health compliance, work for non-U.S. citizens, working conditions, equal opportunity employment and privacy regulations—just to name a few.

Absence Management: The Last Easy Money for Retailers

One of the many challenges facing retailers today is their ability to adapt quickly to a rapidly changing market. Consumer shopping habits and advances in technology are altering the balance between online and in-store transactions, forcing retailers to rebalance their business operating strategies.
