How To Launch A New HR Startup – The Inside Story Of Wagestream’s Rapid Growth [Article & Podcast]

They were some of the most awkward conversations I ever had as a young Human Resources professional . . .

Employees who, in embarrassing moments for everyone involved, had come into HR to see if the company could give them an advance on their pay.

The reasons varied.

The car had broken down leaving them stranded with no way to get to work; a sudden illness in the family; some other sad, unfair cause of stress for a valued member of the team.

Solving Employee Cash Flow Problems – Wagestream

For all the public controversy that continues to swirl around payday loan companies and their vicious interest rates that can hit more than 5,000% in some cases, there’s still an underlying issue that gets forgotten about: the strain on the individual employee who desperately needs the money.

An Exciting HR Software Company To Watch: Adepto

I recently had an in-depth conversation with a leading expert in the financial services industry about how large, well-established companies should react to the rise of the tech firms.

The expert shared several fascinating insights that every large corporation should consider, regardless of their industry.

Two comments, in particular, stood out:

  1. Innovate quickly: The highly ambitious tech companies are well-funded, extremely nimble, and are chipping away at market share. Well-established firms can no longer rely on old product lines for future performance so they must innovate quickly which is not part of their DNA.
  2. The workforce is evolving: Top university graduates used to aim for a career in the biggest companies or in consulting. The reputational damage suffered by many companies after various crises has turned young talent away from established companies and, instead, towards the fast-moving world of tech and entrepreneurship.

Large companies must use the collective power of their employees in a much more clever way if they want to survive the upcoming tech upheaval.

One HR software business is helping these large companies do just that with its single view of everything in one place: skills, experience, accreditations, preferences, goals, feedback and more – meet Adepto and its Total Talent solution.

How To Grow An HR Tech Company – Q&A With AttendanceBot

The HR industry expert, Josh Bersin, recently described how the multi-billion dollar HR software market is moving in a new direction (‘The HR Software Market Reinvents Itself‘). This will be of interest to anyone pondering how to grow an HR tech company.

Bersin is well-known for mapping and monitoring the development of the HR tech industry.

It would appear that we’re moving towards an era of ‘HR in the flow of work‘ and HR tools will play a starring role.

Josh Bersin flow of work

I was interested to note Bersin’s comments about the proliferation of HR tools:

“As organizations become more agile and team oriented, these tools are moving in a whole new direction. Now we need software that facilitates teamwork and agile goal management, helps people give each other feedback, and helps facilitate continuous performance management and self-improvement.

These tools are consumer-like, easy to use, and mobile by design.”

Josh Bersin

I recently spoke with a co-founder of one of these new HR tools – the tool is clearly ‘consumer-like, easy to use, and mobile by design.’

Meet AttendanceBot

AttendanceBot is an HR Tech tool with a specific focus on using any enterprise instant messaging platform like Slack, Microsoft Teams, Google Chat, etc, for attendance management.

Why base an HR tool an an instant messaging tool such as Slack?
