The module is designed for optimum adoption within My SUBWAY® Career, giving franchisees the ability to use and receive value from day one. Designated franchisees and managers in an early adopter program are currently using “You’re Hired”, with a national rollout to U.S. franchisees by late summer and Canadian franchisees by 4th quarter 2014.

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Cornerstone OnDemand Launches Cornerstone Onboarding

June 6, 2014

Newest addition to Cornerstone’s unified talent management software suite helps to decrease time to productivity and increase employee engagement of new hires

SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 13, 2014Cornerstone OnDemand (NASDAQ:CSOD), a global leader in cloud-based talent management software solutions, today announced the upcoming release of Cornerstone Onboarding, featuring capabilities to help organizations provide rich, personalized experiences for new hires that translate into stronger engagement, deeper understanding of company culture and faster time to productivity.

 

Built organically to enhance Cornerstone’s unified talent management suite, including Cornerstone Recruiting, Cornerstone Onboarding unifies the talent acquisition process to deliver a simple, holistic approach to the new hire welcoming process for improved efficiency and collaboration between new employees, colleagues, managers and hiring teams.

 

Available in June, Cornerstone Onboarding features include:

 

  • Personalized welcome portals. Engage new hires before day one by offering social, self-service portals where employees can learn about the company and access critical information, take courses, make internal connections and communicate with their team.

 

  • Real-time task and training management. Keep track of the entire onboarding process and time-to-productivity metrics with the ability to set goals and reminders, track milestones and report on task progress.

 

  • Centralized onboarding documentation. Generate, assign and route new hire forms from one centralized location. Upcoming functionality will enable integration with eVerify and other services to manage critical compliance information.

 

  • Socially engage new hires. Drive new hire engagement by establishing virtual communities and connecting new hires with their colleagues.

 

Comments on the News

 

  • “For many organizations, the quality of the initial onboarding experience is the primary predictor of employee retention. In fact, research shows that roughly nine out of ten new hires fail because of poor engagement, rather than lack of skill, within the first 18 months,” said Adam Miller, founder and CEO of Cornerstone OnDemand. “Cornerstone Onboarding provides a unique approach to streamline the onboarding process and new hires in a company’s culture, connecting them with the right team members and giving them the information they need to be successful from Day One.”

 

  • “The onboarding process is incredibly important in ensuring team members are well-equipped to hit the ground running and thrive in their role,” said Greg Churchman, who, as New Belgium Brewing’s “talent sage,” leads the company’s talent acquisition initiatives. “I am excited to see Cornerstone unveil this offering at Convergence, and I look forward to implementing this feature into our suite.”

 

 

Additional Details

 

  • Live Cornerstone Convergence Keynote: Cornerstone will showcase this new software functionality as part of Adam Miller’s opening keynote address at Cornerstone Convergence 2014, the company’s annual client conference, which is being held May 12-14 in San Diego, Calif. The keynote will be streamed live via the Cornerstone Convergence website this morning from 8:30 – 10:30 a.m. PT / 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET.

 

  • Learn more: Read additional commentary about Cornerstone Onboarding from Reyhan Jhaver, Cornerstone’s director of product innovation, on the Cornerstone blog.

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Saba Unveils Recruiting@Work to Enable Collaborative and Predictive Hiring

December 16, 2013

New Recruiting Solution Further Extends Saba Cloud – Saba’s Next-Generation Talent Management Suite

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. – Dec. 12, 2013 – Saba (OTCPink: SABA), a global leader in next-generation cloud solutions for talent management, today announced its new recruiting offering, Recruiting@Work. A part of Saba Cloud, Recruiting@Work brings objectivity into hiring decisions, giving recruiters and hiring managers the ability to more effectively hire talent in the new world of work. Built upon Saba’s long-standing heritage in talent management, the innovative Recruiting@Work solution addresses three core requirements: predictive recruiting, collaborative hiring, and accelerated screening and onboarding. This focus enables organizations – from small-to-midsized companies to larger enterprises – to quickly discover, hire and onboard top talent.

Too often, hiring managers and recruiters seek new hires within the limited confines of inbound resumes, social media profiles and subjective interviews. To compete today, it is vital that organizations accurately understand the needs of their internal teams and have the tools to uncover the best candidate for the job – whether it is someone halfway across the globe or an employee just down the hall. But today’s challenges cannot be solved with yesterday’s solutions. In order to source the best potential candidates – both externally and internally – recruiters and hiring managers need a state-of-the-art recruiting solution, a smarter applicant tracking system (ATS). It must be simple-to-use, social, mobile, smart and collaborative.

“Recruiting the best, most talented workforce is more important than ever to an organization’s success. Current tools, unfortunately, aren’t delivering the best candidates or providing the required objectivity to make the best hires,” said Shawn Farshchi, president and CEO at Saba. “Saba has uniquely delivered a consumer-grade user experience with advanced capabilities such as machine learning, native video interviewing and comprehensive mobile recruiting support to help bring in top talent faster and increase the number of successful hires that can then contribute to long-term business success.”

The key features included in Saba’s Recruiting@Work offering are:

  • Predictive Recruiting: Saba lets recruiters and hiring managers more effectively identify both external and internal candidates using Web-sourcing and Saba’s patent-pending machine learning technology, The Intelligent Mentor (TIM). TIM insightfully reviews, sorts and prioritizes possible candidates based on skill-sets, offering guidance on which internal candidates managers might want to approach for new opportunities. TIM also can make recommendations to the employees on the skills or training needed to qualify for a new position and thus, open up new career paths. Additionally, Saba’s new offering provides a SmartHire AssistantTM decision dashboard which allows hiring teams to take subjectivity out of hiring and select the right candidate.
  • Collaborative Hiring and Video Interviewing: Recruiting@Work allows hiring to be a connected, collaborative process, offering companies a team-oriented interviewing approach. All employees can provide input on possible candidates, as well as feedback on each candidates experience and potential – online or directly from their mobile device. As part of Saba Cloud, Recruiting@Work is able to tap into Saba’s market-leading video conferencing capabilities to power video interviews, including recording interviews for later review across the hiring team.
  • Accelerated Screening and Onboarding: Recruiting@Work enables organizations to more effectively screen candidates, as well as quickly bring selected new hires up-to-speed on the company’s operations and his or her new role. By tapping into Saba’s native online assessment capabilities, each job posting can auto-screen new candidates based on simple-to-advanced assessments within the candidate application process. Once selected, companies can rapidly onboard candidates using Saba’s advanced onboarding capabilities allowing employees to become integrated into the company and delivering increased bottom line results faster.

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: Lumesse Launches Accelerator to Speed up Productivity and Engagement With New Hires

October 14, 2013

Ideal for HR, Recruiters, Learning and Development Pros Looking to Streamline, Enhance Onboarding, New Employee Engagement Strategies

LAS VEGAS – Oct. 7, 2013 - Lumesse, a global leader in integrated talent management solutions, today announced here at HR Technology Conference the availability of Accelerator, a new package that combines the power of Onboarding, Learning and Social — all available on its TalentLink platform. This offering will empower organizations to fast-track time to productivity and drive new hire engagement. Accelerator is ideal for HR, recruiters and learning and development professionals looking to streamline and enhance their onboarding and new employee engagement strategies.

According to research from the Aberdeen Group, 34% of companies still conduct onboarding on paper. In addition, the Wynhurst Group found that 20% of employees leave new jobs within the first 45 days. As such, organizations are losing out on talent they worked hard to recruit, as well as wasting valuable time and money on staff turnover (turnover costs are often estimated to be 100% – 300% of the base salary for the replaced employee) as a result of not engaging effectively with their new recruits before day one.

In some cases, particularly within certain industries, there are particularly long periods between notice and start-date. It is therefore critical to ensure that new hire feels engaged with the company to avoid losing them before they have even started. Accelerator ensures that the new hire’s time to productivity is increased, knowledge gaps are closed as quickly as possible and HR and recruiters can engage with new onboardees ahead of joining the organization.

Lumesse’s new Accelerator package is designed to address the challenge of onboarding from three key perspectives:

 

  • An intuitive, easy to use and highly engaging employee-facing portal that enables recruiters to connect and socialize with new hires before they even set foot in the office. As well as creating their own unique social profile on this portal, new hires are able to search the company directory and begin to engage with peers and the company culture as soon as they accept their new position.
  • New personnel can fill in and upload all necessary paperwork online for compliance, saving the HR team time and money in administrative tasks, printing and mailing costs.
  • The learning and development team can empower the new hire with knowledge in the form of training documents, videos, SCORM compliant courses and background material tailored to the specific employee profile.

While new hires access Accelerator through an engaging social portal, HR and recruitment staffs have full control of the back end with a flexible CMS-based system. This allows them to define onboarding pages with rich media, select an individual’s onboarding team and set roles and responsibilities, and utilize a workflow engine for automated routing and handling of pre-employment tasks such as form-filling and training. Designed in HTML 5, the portal is optimized for mobile viewing on smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks for new hires on the move, particularly important for those still employed elsewhere who are looking to conduct their initial learning for a new role while on the move or commuting.

Neal Bruce, director of Product Strategy at Lumesse, said, “Today’s skilled candidates have high expectations; and to engage the top talent, organizations need to showcase their values, culture and knowledge as early in the recruitment process as possible. Following this initial engagement with new hires, it is important to maintain a strong relationship over the period of time between acceptance of offer, through notice period and well into the first months of employment. The new Accelerator package enables organizations to do this on a platform that is intuitive, familiar and easily accessible, enabling employees to spend more time getting settled in their new job and less time learning new systems.”

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: 14,000-EMPLOYEE RETAILER ENHANCES TALENT MANAGEMENT WITH ULTIMATE SOFTWARE’S ULTIPRO

July 19, 2013

Ultimate Software (Nasdaq:ULTI), a leading cloud provider of people management solutions, announced today that The Pantry, Inc., the largest convenience store chain in the Southeastern U.S., has improved HR and payroll processes, enhanced talent acquisition, and streamlined its onboarding experience with Ultimate Software’s UltiPro.

Headquartered in Cary, NC, The Pantry operates approximately 1,560 stores in thirteen states under select banners, including Kangaroo Express®, its primary operating banner. Previously, the company used a homegrown AS400 Legacy system to manage its human capital management (HCM) alongside multiple systems and spreadsheets. Challenged by integrating legacy systems and a growing distributed workforce, The Pantry’s leadership began to look for enhanced HR technology with features that would organize and strengthen the entire people management process. The Pantry selected UltiPro for its cloud-based end-to-end HR, payroll, and talent management functionality and went live on UltiPro in January 2013.

“Our previous system had been customized so much that it limited opportunities for improvements,” said Heather Clawson, HRIT manager at The Pantry. “UltiPro’s payroll capabilities are strong and employee data moves easily across all areas of HCM, from recruitment to onboarding to payroll. We also chose UltiPro for its ease of use, strategic reporting tools, and its ability to integrate well with other applications which are all important to our business. UltiPro has helped us better integrate the systems and improve processes. ”

Delivered in the cloud, UltiPro provides businesses with end-to-end HCM functionality, including HR, payroll, benefits, recruitment, onboarding, performance management and reviews, succession planning, career development, time and attendance, and 24-7 access to information for managers and employees. The Pantry now has one system of record to consolidate and manage workforce information, supported with cohesive business intelligence for fast, and extensive, reporting and analysis.

“UltiPro has strengthened and simplified our HR operations and made them much smoother,” said Clawson. “Now with UltiPro, we’re completely paper-free for our recruitment and onboarding.”

With UltiPro Onboarding, The Pantry is expediting the transition process for new employees. Preliminary new hire information captured during recruitment can be used to pre-populate required forms. This saves time for managers and HR staff, eliminates duplicate data entry, and improves the overall experience for everyone involved. Via a secure Web portal, new hires are guided step-by-step through the completion process. A legal ‘click signature’ feature makes the entire process paperless. Completed forms then are encrypted and stored in an electronic document repository.

“UltiPro Onboarding is a huge win for our business because it expedites time to productivity, puts more control in the employees’ hands, and reduces administrative time and costs.,” says Clawson.

In addition to the UltiPro solution’s capabilities, The Pantry also cites Ultimate’s support services as a primary advantage. According to Clawson, The Pantry’s teams and Ultimate worked diligently during the complex activation, including extensive planning, analysis, and project management; configuration and testing; historical and current data conversion; standard interface development; and more.

“The rollout of UltiPro was a positive, collaborative experience to deploy technology that handles every scope of HCM. We have been impressed with Ultimate’s support services throughout.

“Without a doubt, unified, end-to-end HCM is the optimal way to achieve efficiencies and elevate productivity to best support your people, especially for businesses like The Pantry that have thousands of employees, dispersed locations, and goals for more expansion,” said Greg Swick, chief sales officer at Ultimate Software. “We’re excited that UltiPro has provided this very successful retailer with powerful technology that is significantly improving its HRprocesses, and we look forward to a long, rewarding business relationship as we both grow in the future.”

HRchitect Tech Vendor News: MAD Greens Sees “Inspired” Results With PeopleMatter Platform…from PeopleMatter

May 17, 2013

If you are looking for a new Human Capital Management HCM System, don’t rely solely on “recommendations” or published reports. Do yourself a huge favor and talk to HRchitect first. After 16 years, HRchitect has unparalleled knowledge of the HCM vendor community and can save you time and money in selection and implementation. Simply put, do not invest in any kind of HR technology without consulting with the experts first. HRchitect is always available to help!

MAD Greens — Inspired Eats, a fresh concept on salads based in Colorado, and PeopleMatter, the only comprehensive HR Platform designed for the service industry, recently released ROI results from their partnership in streaming the company’s HR processes. In July 2011, MAD Greens selected PeopleMatter’s automated tools to streamline the entire hiring process into one online Platform. In nine months, the company tracked a 50 percent reduction in manager time spend while increasing data accuracy and ensuring 100 percent compliance.

Prior to implementing PeopleMatter talent management solutions, MAD Greens used paper-based hiring. The growing company struggled to complete required paperwork in a timely fashion. With a small executive staff the greater challenge was ensuring accuracy while tracking requirements, deadlines and updates. With PeopleMatter in place, the restaurant chain could use one central, online location to input, process and store information.

“At MAD Greens, we all wear a lot of hats and it is hard to find time for everything,” said Marley Hodgson, MAD Greens CEO and co-founder. “Taking care of your staff is a full-time job but we don’t always have that luxury. PeopleMatter essentially acts like another team member and that’s critical.”

One of the staffing challenges MAD Greens faced early on was assessing applicants to ensure consistency in hiring decisions. It was a time issue, managers didn’t have time to do the process efficiently. The entire hiring and onboarding process could take up to two weeks. PeopleMatter HIRE™ cut the processing time down to three days and the managers’ time spent on hiring in half. The software also allows the “MAD” company to put a little of its culture into the online onboarding process. Hodgson actually took the time to film a welcoming video for employees to be introduced to the MAD Greens mission.

“It’s a consolidated Platform, helping increase operational efficiency and providing a place our company culture can reside as much as possible on the Internet,” said Hodgson. “It’s really nice when I walk in a store and a new hire says, ‘Hey, I just watched a video of you welcoming me.’”

For MAD Greens, the number one benefit from using PeopleMatter solutions is the accuracy of the data. The “scary proposition” of company audits are in the past. Now the simplicity of the Platform ensures that the restaurant chain’s information is 80 percent more accurate and in an easy-to-access location.

“The PeopleMatter Platform is designed well and clearly thought out,” said Hodgson. “Lots of systems say they are simple, this one actually is. And simplicity is where it is at in our business.”

“Working with exceptional people who believe in your corporate mission is what makes serving our clients so satisfying,” said Nate DaPore, PeopleMatter president and CEO. “MAD Greens is really using the software the way it is meant to be used.”

HRchitect’s HRtechnology Vendor News: Talent Acquisition Enters New Frontier: iCIMS’ Latest Release Reflects the Changing Dynamic of the Job Search

May 13, 2013

-Talent Platform 13.1 enhancements reflect desire of employers to not only recruit for open positions, but promote their employment brand and build relationships with potential candidates-

MATAWAN, N.J. (May 6, 2013) – iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, is announcing the launch of the latest version of its core product, Talent Platform 13.1. This release is a standout; it features progressive new functionality that reflects the growing desire of companies to utilize technology to not only help in advertising jobs but to build relationships with potential candidates and increase brand awareness.

“Talent acquisition has become so much more than just tracking applicants,” said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. “It’s about building relationships, creating brand awareness, and communicating your company culture and values. This convergence of marketing and recruitment is exciting at an industry level and helps build interest on the candidate side, which ultimately assists employers in recruiting and onboarding great talent. That’s what our suite of solutions strives to do.”

Enhancements to iCIMS Talent Platform include optimized career portal branding, new bidirectional email, comprehensive metrics dashboards, and an upgraded Onboard solution.

“The talent acquisition lifecycle really starts on a company’s career portal, where both active and passive candidates search for job openings and research companies,” said Vitale. “This is where a company needs to put its best foot forward. Our 13.1 release allows clients to create a public-facing career portal that has a clean, modern look configured with brand assets that give not only candidates, but the public at large, a look into a company’s culture and brand.”

One of the most highly-anticipated new features of the Talent Platform is Bidirectional Email.  This new feature, which came directly through customer feedback, allows recruiters, hiring managers, and HR professionals to send email communications from the platform to candidates, while automatically recording the two-way conversation in the platform for historical data tracking. The communications interface has also been modernized across notes, appointments, and email composition. As a foray into Big Data, iCIMS is also now offering a new Metrics Dashboard, which allows users to view and drill down into insightful data across products, including key stats around career portal activity, candidate sources, and high level workflow summaries.

The company’s 13.1 release will also coincide with the much anticipated release of its upgradedOnboard solution. Onboard allows HR professionals to automate the transition from candidate to productive new hire, which is key to new hire retention. According to a 2011 Aberdeen Group report on employee productivity, the right onboarding process has been found to increase new hire retention by 50% and double the level of new hire engagement. iCIMS’ configurable Onboard solution provides options for companies to house dynamic content, like tailored welcome messages, pictures, and onboarding videos. This greatly enhances the transition experience, giving new hires the ability to engage and learn about the company while completing important online forms before their first day.

“Along with enhancing our core Talent Platform, we have also improved our integrations with background check solution providers,” commented iCIMS Chief Technical Officer Paul Melici. “It is so important companies ensure they are in line with state and federal mandates when bringing on a new hire. Our new standard integration package in 13.1 automates the process so background checks are easy, repeatable, and scalable.”

The iCIMS Talent Platform can be integrated with over 125 different service providers, likeSterlingOrange TreeFirst AdvantageAuricoTalentWise, and Accurate, to facilitate a company’s recruitment initiatives. All of these enhancements are expected to strengthen iCIMS’ already stellar customer service, which recently garnered two coveted industry awards including the Bronze Stevie® Award for “Customer Service Department of the Year” in the Computer Software category and a top three ranking in HRO Today Magazine’s “Baker’s Dozen Customer Satisfaction Ratings” in the Talent Management Software category.

HRchitect’s HRtechnology Vendor News: SilkRoad Teams with Nobscot to Offer New Hire Surveys to RedCarpet Customers

April 12, 2013

If you are looking for a new Talent Management System, or any HR system, don’t rely solely on “recommendations” or published reports. Do yourself a huge favor and talk to HRchitect first. After 16 years, HRchitect has unparalleled knowledge of the HR and Talent Management vendor community and can save you time and money in selection and implementation.

Partnership Will Help RedCarpet Users Identify Onboarding & Recruiting Trouble Spots

SilkRoad, a leading global provider of cloud-based social talent management software, recently announced a partnership with HR survey/analytics authority Nobscot Corporation designed to combine the power of SilkRoad’s RedCarpet® HR onboarding system with Nobscot’s automated FirstDays new hire/quality of hire surveys to help companies optimize their HR and recruitment policies and procedures.

RedCarpet customers can now use FirstDays as well as Nobscot’s WebExit exit interview management system to identify and correct irritants that can cause costly employee attrition. In addition, FirstDays and WebExit customers can now use RedCarpet to help solve the problems identified by the Nobscot surveys.

RedCarpet automates new hire orientation and onboarding processes while also managing employee transitions such as promotions, transfers and offboarding. Content ranging from welcome messages and new employee forms to schedules, training and other supporting materials is delivered through a customizable employee portal, streamlining HR operations.

FirstDays online surveys measure the new hire experience in areas ranging from the recruitment process to the work environment, pinpoint the causes of ‘quick quits’ (new hires that leave in the first 90 days), and poll supervisors about the new hire quality. WebExit automates the exit interview process and provides detailed insights into reasons for employee turnover.

By utilizing the SilkRoad and Nobscot products in tandem, companies will be able to:

  • Receive continuous feedback about new hires’ RedCarpet experience, providing a roadmap for improving company information provided in the RedCarpet portal.
  • Address problems uncovered in FirstDays and WebExit surveys by utilizing the tools provided by RedCarpet.
  • Access applications from both companies with a single login, enabling easy switching between RedCarpet and FirstDays/WebExit accounts.
  • Trigger FirstDays and WebExit surveys from RedCarpet, including time-saving automatic population of employee data into the both survey systems.

“The mission of our RedCarpet software solution is to help companies improve their onboarding, recruiting and retention strategies. Nobscot’s new hire and exit interview survey platforms complement that objective perfectly,” said Flip Filipowski, Executive Chairman and Co-CEO of SilkRoad. “This partnership gives our customers valuable new tools for measuring employee satisfaction, evaluating new hire quality, and combating turnover.”

“Using our new hire, quality-of-hire and exit surveys in conjunction with SilkRoad’s RedCarpet platform will shed light on problems ranging from mistaken expectations about the job and company to unwelcoming co-workers, weak on-the-job training and other reasons for early attrition,” said Beth N. Carvin, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nobscot. “Identifying these kinds of problems is the first step to correcting them and paving the way for increased employee retention.”

No in-house software installation is required to use FirstDays or WebExit, all questions are customizable to meet individual company needs, and survey results can be examined by department, division, location, gender and other parameters as well as companywide with a click. Deployment and customization assistance are provided by Nobscot HR and technology professionals.

For more information on the benefits of utilizing RedCarpet and FirstDays and/or WebExit together, email info@nobscot.com or bizdev@silkroad.com. Nobscot and SilkRoad invite you to attend a free webinar, “Re-Thinking Offboarding: Using Exit Interview Data to Slash Unwanted Turnover,” on April 11, 2013, at 2pm EST. This upcoming webinar will explore a data-driven strategic approach to exit interview management, and Beth N. Carvin will reveal best practices and tools that will help you make the most of your exit data and significantly reduce the turnover of high-potential, diverse and other critical employees.
