At Oracle OpenWorld 2018, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd stated that 35 percent of a recruiter’s day is spent on sourcing and processing candidates. However, automation and artificial intelligence (AI) can introduce efficiency into the entire recruiting process and eliminate costly manual processes. Finding the right talent and then onboarding that talent efficiently can be challenging in today’s competitive recruitment environment, but Hurd explained how he sees emerging technology changing recruiting moving forward.

Lynne Sampson, Managing Editor of Oracle’s The Modern Finance Leader, wrote about how a gaming-entertainment company recently leveraged Oracle ERP Cloud and Oracle HCM Cloud to combat manual processes, customizations, and legacy systems that were preventing them from operating more efficiently and effectively.

Kai Petzelt, Vice President of Product Marketing for Oracle HCM, wrote about the top 10 reasons why companies should consider moving HCM in the Cloud. Companies need technology that supports areas like compensation, payroll, benefits, performance, and time management all in one platform. This technology also needs to adhere to the latest compliance and regulatory requirements. Requirements like this mean that this technology cannot be limited to the boundaries of an on-premises solution.

Petzelt points out that in order to benefit from all of the capabilities while having the lowest maintenance and effort to control and update systems, small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) should take their human capital management (HCM) practices to the Cloud. Doing so can help these businesses connect various HR initiatives and technology across the enterprise. In addition to low maintenance and additional capabilities, Petzelt laid out the top 10 reasons to move HCM in the Cloud.

Many companies are understandably cautious about investing in new technologies – particularly back-office systems that are critical to their operations. However, a new report from MIT Technology Review showed that after a decade of companies moving to Cloud applications, those that hesitate put themselves at greater risk than in the past. The old ways of staying current won’t be sufficient enough to compete with companies that are truly modernizing their operations and even creating new business models with Cloud applications. Oracle Vice Chairman Jeff Henley said that reluctant company leaders and boards must be sold on the strategic advantages of Cloud applications, not just on their cost benefits. Three companies – AirAsia, Sportable Scoreboards, and TrueBlue – leveraged Oracle Cloud applications (HCM, ERP, EPM) to future-proof operations.

No industry is immune from the current pace of technological change. While this acceleration presents radical opportunities for growth, analytics, and connectivity, it also brings real and pressing challenges to the adaptability of business organizations. At COLLABORATE 19, Chinam Kry, VP of Cloud Business Group at Oracle, shared with the Quest community how aligning HR and Finance through Cloud-based applications creates an agile, adaptable business response to navigate both the current business landscape and future innovation.

Apparao Kandru from IMMI spoke at COLLABORATE 19 about how the company achieved HR operational excellence by leveraging Oracle HCM Cloud.

In his decades of experience in customer-facing sales and executive roles, Oracle CEO Mark Hurd has learned a thing or two about understanding people. Operational and people skills are a critical part of managing Oracle, one of the world’s largest private employers, and addressing the constant need for new talent to sustain its growth. When Hurd joined the company eight years ago, Oracle had roughly 105,000 employees. Today, its global workforce comprises 137,000 people. It’s no surprise that keeping this many people happy, focused, and productive isn’t easy, and it would be unrealistic for Hurd to think he can treat every employee the same. Hurd addressed this personnel challenge by directing Oracle to deploy people- and system-driven approaches to enable Oracle’s HR department to develop personalized employee interactions and ultimately improve job satisfaction.

There truly is strength in numbers. Human Resources lays this foundation at top performing companies. HR encourages hundreds, if not thousands of people to work toward the same direction and goal. This creates a shared sense of purpose and an engaging culture. Establishing an engaging culture that encourages people to work together, continue learning, and grow their careers in a meaningful way will motivate your workforce to create value. One of the best ways to facilitate this is with an intelligent, personalized HR technology. Unfortunately, not all technology is as simple and supportive as it sounds.

A recent Oracle blog talked through the reasons to tackle your ERP/EPM and HCM systems together to create an integrated Cloud solution. It starts with a scenario: Imagine that you’re getting a promotion to a management position, which would impact your purchasing authority, approval workflows, travel allowances, and pay structure. On top of that, you’re moving to North America to Europe, where your company operates under a different legal entity. How long will it take before your new role is reflected in your company’s Human Resources system, you start getting paid at your new rate, and your new team can start submitting expenses to your for approval?

JP Saunders, Vice President of Business Value Consulting at Oracle, wrote about results from recent HCM Cloud and ERP Cloud benchmark reports from the Oracle Value Realization Program.

One obstacle that many HR executives face is trying to convince a skeptical CFO to make the move to HCM Cloud. Your CFO will likely want to see a compelling business case before approving your idea, which is understandable. Business cases are packed with financial analyses and justifications—right up your CFO’s alley. A recent Oracle blog explored the best ways to build a winning HCM Cloud business case to convince your CFO and your organization to move to HCM Cloud.

For Yum! Brands, the parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell, adopting Oracle HR Help Desk was the logical next step in the company’s Oracle Cloud journey. With a relatively aggressive timeline for an organization of their size, Yum!

Digital business and intelligent transformation or optimization is a leading initiative among organizations across all verticals, but only a small percentage have been able to make progress to date. Tools such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) can be used to "supercharge" productivity, bolster generation of existing revenue streams all while boosting the overall customer experience.…

At COLLABORATE 19, Hunter Bohannon, the HR Oracle Cloud Support Analyst at Yum! Brands, spoke about how Yum! Brands conquered challenging payroll business requirements with Oracle HCM Cloud and Cloud Payroll.

There’s no question that the payroll manager plays a crucial role in the success of both HR and Finance. At COLLABORATE 19, there was discussion around the role of the payroll manager during a Cloud implementation, during readiness preparation, during go-live, and when business is simply moving along as usual. While the payroll manager has relatively similar daily responsibilities both on-premises or in the Cloud, there are several roles that the payroll manager additionally takes on during implementation, readiness preparation, and go-live.

Lori Pierson, Vice President of HCM Transformation at Oracle, laid out five dangers customers should avoid when upgrading their HR system to HCM Cloud. Moving on-premises human resources applications to the Cloud is continuously becoming more and more popular.

Sue Shaw, Director of IT Operations for ATCO Group, spoke at COLLABORATE 19 about how to manage change after you’ve made the move to the Cloud.

Dhvani Sheth, Solution Engineer at Oracle, showed how Oracle Analytics Cloud and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse can provide useful data analysis and visualization to HR departments. Hiring the right people requires a lot of time, money, and effort. However, hiring the wrong people can be just as costly, if not more so. Without using data analytics to make data-driven decisions, HR departments may be prone to hire based on a cognitive bias that they aren’t aware of. Instead of using traditional techniques, HR can use data analytics and visualization to find patterns within large volumes of data to make insightful hiring decisions for the company.
