With the implementation of a unified HCM suite, Kronos customers can improve payroll accuracy, efficiency, and data visibility while moderating compliance risk and developing a highly engaged workforce (via Business Wire).
  • Ceridian has announced that Christian Aid will use its cloud-based platform Dayforce to integrate all aspects of their employee lifecycle around the globe. Dayforce will help Christian Aid employees to record their time without being physically present in one location, and enable managers to communicate with their colleagues in multiple languages through the message centre (via Financial Post).

More HRD Tech News:

  • Vancouver-headquartered workforce solutions provider Visier has initiated a new feature called Visier People that offers the latest visibility into the diversity and inclusion efforts of the company. It is an SaaS-based solution that recognises opportunities and risks to help HR and business leaders to form strategies that will help deliver organizational goals (via HCM Technology Report).
  • XcelHR has introduced a more powerful HRIS system, XcelHR Connect, to enable employers to manage payroll, onboarding, benefits enrolment and more. XcelHR Connect will help business owners to make more informed decisions with access to key metrics, avoid making errors and save time by capturing employee information rapidly (via HR Technologist).

Quote of the week

“I think technology is important, but as an enabler, not because it’s the solution. I don’t care if people in my organization actually write the feedback in the system, for me the most important part is that they actually have the conversation. You can have technology and a calendar with events triggered to remind people, and maybe even to force them to have that conversation, but if you’re forcing people to have feedback conversations, then you haven’t achieved the right relationship with your people yet.” 

Ahead of his appearance at the HRD Summit EU, RAI Amsterdam June 19th-20th, Tom Schotkamp, Global Head Performance Management, ING, spoke to HRD Connect about embedding performance management throughout our lives, and the importance of a proper understanding of technology’s value and limitations.
