Are you a leader in an HR Shared Services organization?
Are you a member of an HR Shared Services organization?
Are you evaluating or implementing a Cloud/SaaS solution for HR?
Are you transforming your HR function?
Are you setting up a new HR Shared Services organization?
Are you insourcing your HR service delivery?
Are you responsible for managing talent in your HR organization?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might find some useful nuggets here.

Over the past 5+ years, we’ve seen a tremendous surge in the number of organizations moving to the cloud. Cloud or Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) technology has disrupted the HR function across multiple dimensions—organization, process, people, and technology—including the HR Shared Services (HRSS) organization and its people. This disruption, coupled with the changing perception of the shared services organization from a traditional back-office administrative function to a strategic value-added operational function, has resulted in the need for different talent and skills to support this elevated position.

The Big Picture: Practical Considerations before Implementing Talent Management

Many companies recognize talent data improves workforce planning and analytical decisions in helping them meet strategic business goals.

BYOD: Another Sign of the Postdigital Times

BYOD: Another Sign of the Postdigital Times Posted by Rob Underwood on September 5, 2012

We’ve talked about the postdigital enterprise here on the blog before—how people and their technology tools are becoming increasingly interconnected and how five disruptive forces (social, mobility, analytics, cloud and cyber intelligence) are converging to reshape the marketplace and the expectations of customers and employees.

In our experience, there are many steps on the workforce analytics journey and organizations sit at different points along the journey based on their information maturity.
