50 years. How many businesses can say they’ve been serving the same community, for 50 years? Most of the companies grabbing headlines these days – Google, Facebook, Uber – haven’t been around for a combined 50 years. Google, the oldest of the bunch, is just shy of 20 years. Facebook a little over a decade, Uber less than one.
Ceridian Hawaii has 50 years in business, in this wonderful community of surf, sand, and the Spirit of Aloha. Our anniversary parties are just coming to a close – a month of celebrations throughout April, in office spa days, lots of pizza, community service days giving back to where we’ve lived and worked for these five decades.

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.

Balancing work and personal life is challenging when you’re a dedicated mother and devoted wife; I’m often managing schedules and extra-curricular activities on top of an at times hectic work-life as a senior payroll administrator. Luckily, I have a great, understanding husband who helps out with a lot, but he can’t help me with my pressing work deadlines. From ensuring payroll is accurately delivered on time to the entire workforce to handling unexpected last minute payroll changes, my job is not easy. Thankfully, I’ve learned a lot and gained experience over my 20-year career. I want to share an important tip to avoid working late as a Payroll Practitioner – leverage modern HCM technology.

The HR function has been transformed by technology. It began long ago with the first application to impact the department – payroll software. As anyone who has been in the industry for a while already knows, the modern era of payroll is a far cry from the manual entry, paper-based filing systems that seldom involved any non-HR employee.
Today, digitization, automation, and consumerization have combined to force companies into a much different position. Employees expect seamless access to their payroll information and businesses must be able to offer it in a controlled, accurate, and efficient fashion. Read more

The value proposition of a good human capital management (HCM) solution relies on its ability to deliver an ROI through automating manual processes, improving efficiencies of existing software processes, and reducing or eliminating costs associated with bad data. At the heart of all this is the fact that human intervention in a business’s HCM is costly.
It costs in the form of waste: wages going to staff filing forms, faxing paperwork, consolidating data in spreadsheets, doing double data entry in multiple systems; these are wages being paid for activities that don’t add value and aren’t part of the real work of running a business. Read more

There’s no easy way to say it: when humans get involved, sometimes payroll mistakes get made. It happens – especially when organizations bring new hires on board in the middle of a pay period. Unfortunately, it’s not realistic to only hire every two weeks or on the 1st and 15th of the month. Some amount of manual labor will be required to pay employees who are hired in between those magical dates. Read more
