The Human Factor in HCM
“Our people are our greatest asset.” Almost every chief executive officer (CEO) says it, and every employee rolls their eyes. How can you be considered an asset if the company doesn’t invest in the tools that help ensure its success?

All the transactional pieces are still there (and still critical), but they are only part of the story.
How Technology Can Adapt
Over time, we’ll begin to see HCM more deeply integrated with other enterprise businessapplications to create a more holistic view of how an organization is performing. If you’re tracking revenue generation through a sales force automation tool, for example, wouldn’t it make sense to correlate a decline within a specific geography with the information about the people responsible for representing that area’s customers?
