While most retailers have given some thought to cloud-based human capital management (HCM) solutions, the underlying needs and anticipated benefits varies. In a previous blog, I shared high-level insights from Ceridian’s collaboration with Innovative Retail Technologies to survey more than 150 retail workforce managers. I want to hone in on the specific benefits our respondents felt cloud-based applications brought to their business. Read more
More and more Human capital management professionals have their heads in the clouds, and that’s a great thing for core processes and for culture!
Pricewaterhouse Cooper surveyed over 650 organizations during the third quarter of 2015 to determine how they use the cloud-based SaaS, and what their plans for it are in the future. What PwC found was that human resource departments are turning to the cloud to improve core processes at an “ever-increasing rate”. It seems more and more employers are finding that in today’s global marketplace, the cloud is necessary to streamline processes and share information effectively. Read more

Yes, I do have a life, yet one of my favorite past-times is tracking Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) changes and how they impact employers. (There is no accounting for taste).

A recent study of more than 200 companies by our friends at the Starr Conspiracy Intelligence Unit revealed that in the next 12 months, 57% of organizations plan to invest in an HR technology solution. Companies with less than 1000 employees stated a higher need to invest in HR technology than larger counterparts (59% vs. 53% respectively). This is not surprising because cloud technology makes it easier for smaller companies to access capabilities that a decade or two ago were only afforded to deep pocketed enterprises.
