July 10 HRchitect WebMingle Featured Emerald Software Group, Next Up is AIRS

July 10, 2009

 

Our weekly web mingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry!

So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.

The 60-minute WebMingle on July 10th, the 27th in our WebMingle series, featured Chuck Ros, President of Emerald Software Group. It was another fascinating WebMingle as Chuck has tremendous insights and passion around the automated onboarding process. We touched on a number of issues related to that including: 

  • The distinction between “transactional onboarding” and “acculturation onboarding”
  • What “Universal Onboarding” is all about
  • Onboarding best practices
  • Emerald’s multilingual capabilities and why multilingual is so important
  • Why Emerald’s provisioning product—SSR—is a lifecycle product
  • The importance, challenges and best ways that HR departments could “go green”
  • How the economy is looking from the perspective of someone who automates hiring
  • …and more
