It’s time to think more strategically about your entire workforce. Learn the benefits of a unified approach to HCM and workforce management.
In today’s competitive and rapidly changing business environment, sustained success requires a total HCM strategy that focuses on managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce — both hourly and salaried employees alike.

Read the e-book for best-practice advice and valuable insights into the shared future of HCM and workforce management, including:
Where early attempts to bring together HCM and workforce management fell short of expectations
Why you need an integrated HCM and workforce management technology platform to gain complete visibility into your entire workforce and drive better decisions

Engaging Employees through a Unified Platform
Learn how simplifying processes with a unified HCM solution can help you better manage all employees and remove barriers to optimal engagement.
An engaged workforce is satisfied and productive. To make this a reality for your organization, you need a human capital strategy that can help you think strategically about managing, engaging, and retaining your entire workforce.
However, in many cases, the systems that manage human capital alienate rather than engage both employees and managers — making it challenging, for example, to easily access schedules or paystubs without having to call HR or do self-service assessments of career path options.
Implementing an effective HCM strategy supported by the right workforce technology can save your organization time and resources, improve the management of your people-related processes, and drive greater employee engagement.

According to the Boston Consulting Group, in the last 50 years the average life span of the major corporation shrunk from 60 years to just 15—a decrease of 75 percent. From globalization and rapid technological advances to the ever-evolving instant gratification requirements of consumers, the message is simple: go digital or go bust.
This paper examines what digital transformation means for an organization’s people, why the HR function sits at the heart of any digital transformation, and how the right technology can power HR’s success.

You don’t have to be sweatin’ to the oldies or your favorite Richard Simmons DVD to generate heat. Actions as unconscious as breathing generate heat as part of the metabolism, the process of breaking down food for energy and rebuilding our bodies. Normally, this heat is a good thing, and essential for maintaining our core body temperature of about 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Celsius).
But heat is not always our friend. Overheating can lead to serious heat-related illnesses, including heat rash, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke.1 This is especially true for people who work warm outdoor climates or hot indoor environments such as foundries, bakeries, boiler rooms, laundries, etc. In these situations, workers need a way to shed excess heat.

An employee’s first few days are critically important, not only because organizations need to get their new hire up to speed as soon as possible, but also because the initial days at a new job hold huge influence over an employee’s decision to stay with the company long term.
While onboarding has typically been geared toward new hires, organizations are now also onboarding transitional workers, to better prepare those moving into managerial or executive roles.
Human Capital Media — the research arm of Chief Learning Officer magazine — partnered with SilkRoad for the “2016 CLO Innovations in Onboarding Survey.” We examined best practices in onboarding to answer these common questions, and more:
• How do organizations define onboarding and how it fits into their overall strategy?
• Who is involved in the process and how does technology enhance onboarding efforts?
• What are examples of successful onboarding outcomes?

Can technology make safety simpler and more effective?
We surveyed 517 environmental, health & safety professionals to find out.
We wanted to know how they:
•Conduct their safety programs and processes;
•Interact with safety regulations and protocols;
•Use technology in their processes;
•Feel about the effectiveness of new technologies such as mobile applications and automated processes.
In a series of real-world examples, this eBook presents before-and-after scenarios that illustrate how deploying a mobile solution helped companies achieve their goals, and how the roles of safety professionals – from inspectors & technicians in the field, to safety officers and executives in the office – have evolved with mobile technology.
The eBook also highlights the recent trend among safety professionals to go beyond safety inspections and use technology to automatically dispatch remedial actions in real time and build ambitious preventative maintenance programs. This trend makes it possible to leapfrog current safety practices, and save additional lives.
