Create a community of volunteers within your company this National Volunteer Month

Kelly Allder – VP of People Programs and Executive Director of Ceridian Cares

I just hung up the phone from talking with a very special regular caller.

Mario calls every week to check in on his Ceridian Cares application.  First, he called to ask about whether he could apply.  Then he called to ask about how to fill in the application.  Then the call was to let me know he sent the application.  The following week he called to see if we had received his application.  Then he checked in to track progress.  Last week I was happy to inform him that his application had been approved!  This week he called to ask about how the service provider will get paid.  Next week he’ll probably call to let me know he received the very item that launched his relationship with us, Ceridian Cares.

To some, this weekly call might be just another interruption to their daily routine.  They might ask, “why can’t he just read the instructions on the website, trust in the process, and wait for our response?”  But for me, it is an honour to speak with Mario (and others like him). Representing the hard-earned dollars that our employees raise to give back to their communities, talking over the phone with folks like Mario, is by far, the best part of my job. Read more

The impact of good and bad onboarding experiences

Paul Jelinek – Director of Product Management, Ceridian

As a recent new hire at Ceridian, I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for everything that goes into bringing a new person into an organization. From my perspective this included a lot of details, such as completing all of the required paperwork, registering for training, ordering my computer equipment, enrolling in benefits, learning about the company’s values and policies, getting to know where I could go to for answers to my questions, and so much more that doesn’t even include learning my new day-to-day tasks. I can truly say from experience that when an organization makes this process easier for a new employee, it makes all the difference. Read more

How to hang on to your ideal candidates

Paul Sandusky – VP of Talent Acquisition, Ceridian

In today’s highly competitive, mobilized and ‘Uberized’ workforce landscape, there are many shifts taking place that require HR leaders to adjust their approach to talent acquisition and management. And while organizations face a handful of challenges and changes, one thing is for certain: Modern recruitment is largely candidate-driven.

Particularly in areas experiencing talent shortages, employers can’t afford to let quality candidates pass them by. Finding and onboarding professionals who are an ideal fit for the role and company is a top priority and necessity when it comes to maintaining high retention, engagement and productivity rates.  Read more

Top HCM Leaders Write, and Here’s Why

Candice Belair – Social Media Coordinator, Ceridian
Nick Venturella – Customer Success Operations Manager, Ceridian

Writing isn’t just something for people in the publishing and marketing industries to benefit from.

Professionals across a wide variety of fields can – and should – take advantage of writing, including those in human capital management. We’re talking CPO’s, CHRO’s, HR/Talent Leadership, HR/Payroll Managers and more.

You don’t have to consider yourself a professional author to take advantage of this medium.

All professionals should be writing in some way shape or form, regardless of where they are in their careers – or where they want to go. Read more

4 out of 5 People Think HR Technology is Going Through an Awkward Phase

James Arsenault – Director of Strategic Communications, Ceridian

Growing up is never easy, whether it’s getting through middle school or a technology platform.  There are those periods that are full of things not working correctly and awkward moments.

When it comes to technology platforms, this process has been repeated many times.  Before ERP platforms there were hundreds of start-ups solving supply chain problems.  Before comprehensive financial software there were accounts payable, receivable and bookkeeping packages.  But, eventually they merged into the platforms we know today.

Solutions that help organizations manage and develop their people have gone through the same process, with Talent Management, Benefits, Payroll, Workforce Management, and core HR all coming together to become single platforms.  Granted, some of those “integrated” platforms aren’t really working together well yet, but the trend is clear that organizations are looking to have all their people processes combined in a real-time, one-version-of-the-truth solution.
