3 Ways HCM Technology Helps Improve Engagement and Retention

Human Capital Management | Performance Management

With low unemployment and the competition for top talent at its peak, employers are seeking better ways to develop an engaging work environment that attracts and retains top performers. A recent Harvard Business Review article cited an internal study by Facebook on why employees chose to stay at the company.

What’s the Difference Between HR and HCM Technology?

Human Capital Management | Performance Management

In war, the victor’s write the history textbook. In marketing, those with the bigger marketing budgets define the industry terms.

Because of this, HCM technology gets put in a box of “HR Streamlining technology” or "a full workforce management suite." But those are severely deficient definitions. More than just a suite that simplifies daily HR and personnel management, true HCM technology helps organizations begin the journey of applying the science of HCM in their organizations.

HRIS | Performance Management

The performance review is a nerve-wracking ceremony for both the employee and supervisor involved. It is important to develop clear reviewing criteria for each employee. Grading an entry-level employee who has been at your company for six months on their leadership ability is probably a mistake. However, the new head of business development would be the perfect candidate for that kind of review. So lets talk about some performance review best practices to deal with these differences?

Performance Management
