    Guest: Gretchen Alarcon, Group Vice President, HCM Strategy, Oracle 

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, we were joined by Gretchen Alarcon from Oracle.  Today we have a great topic, the importance of HR Technology in helping organizations begin to bring their employees back into workplaces, and to make sure they are safe, they are confident in how their organization has prepared for opening up the workplace, and how they can do their best work in what is a very difficult and stressful period. Oracle worked with their customers and from those conversations has delivered a compelling set of solutions, the Employee Care Package, to help employers and employees navigate these challenges and position themselves for success. Gretchen shared some of the thought processes behind the development of these solutions and how they can help organizations and their people work though these times.

    Guest: Dickens Aubourg, Director of Client Learning, Paycom

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Dickens Aubourg from Paycom. Today we have a great topic, the importance of HR Technology in helping to create a great, compelling employee experience at work, and more specifically, how this can help employees and organizations achieve their learning and upskilling and reskilling objectives – a topic we were talking about constantly before the COVID-19 situation, but one that has not diminished in importance despite the pandemic and its effects. Dickens shared how technology is evolving to support employees with more personalized, consumer grade experiences, and how better technology enables HR to focus on much higher value added activities like building culture and developing the next generation of leaders.

    Additionally, we talked about the concept of making the other players around you better,  our favorite 90s hip hop artists, and even some NBA basketball as Dickens and I are both long suffering Knicks fans.
