Employee experience has echoed along the halls of empty offices of organizations that have had to change how they operate during the pandemic.
Unsurprisingly, as people have worked from home, the lines between personal time and work have become more blurred.
This has pushed many companies to invest heavily in tools to monitor and improve employee experience.
UKG Marketplace, a global provider of human capital management (HCM) and workforce management solutions, has now launched new technology offerings that will help its clients further improve their employee’s experience.
Through leveraging relationships with nearly two dozen new technology partners, the company aims to offer a frictionless employee technology experience.
Speaking about the new offering, Mike May, senior director of the UKG Connect Technology Partner Network said: “UKG has built one of the largest and most collaborative partner ecosystems focused wholly on the HCM industry.
“By emphasizing the extensibility of our solutions, UKG customers and their people benefit from applications and real-time data integrations that create empowering people experiences and optimize business outcomes.”
What technology will be used?
UKG Marketplace’s partnerships will enable clients to make data-driven decisions through Visier, which will now integrate its Visier People analytics solution. This enables HR teams to look at performance and retention initiatives with actionable insights.
Additionally, there will be the ability to deliver personalized communications via the social collaboration platform Simpplr. The product uses employee data, like their role and location, to give personalized company news.
UKG Marketplace wants to enable quicker hiring through technologies Global HR Research, Sterling Talent Solutions, and Vault Verify. The products will be used as background and employment screening partners.
The company will also be helping close talent gaps in the health industry through a variety of tools. The likes of BookJane and CareRev will give healthcare organizations access to networks of trained professionals.
If that wasn’t enough, UKG Marketplace has invested in automation and effective planning. The products of Ingentis as well as OrgChart Now by OfficeWork, and Sift3 will all provide organizational-charting solutions. The goal is to identify skill gaps and employee trends. HireCredit, HRSoft, and This is Alice will all be used to streamline work processes, deliver benefits and keep taxation up to code
Vaccine tracking has been difficult for many companies. However, UKG Solutions will employ ReturnSafe to verify the status of employees and give them the opportunity to get vaccinated.
These partnerships come shortly after UKG announced a collaboration with Microsoft, which was intended to unify the solutions provided.
On the back of this news, R “Ray” Wang, principal analyst and CEO at technology advisory company Constellation Research, Inc, noted: “The days of expecting employees to toggle between a variety of disparate applications are long behind us.”
“High-performing organizations have realized they’re best served by solution providers who work together, leveraging open and extensible platforms, to reimagine workplace processes to create frictionless technology experiences.”
