Indeed to support up to 2 skills assessments in job ads

Indeed | January 16, 2020

Indeed is expanding its Indeed Assessments tool, allowing employers to add two skills tests to their job postings, the company announced Jan. 16. The feature is rolling out to U.S. employers and is currently free to use. Both recruiters and job seekers believe skills are a better indication of a candidate's ability than credentials, according to an Indeed survey released with the announcement. In the poll of more than 500 employers and 500 job seekers, Indeed found that 41% of job-seekers said their education isn't directly tied to the field in which they work or are conducting their job search. Survey results also showed that 55% of respondents with recruiting responsibilities think resumes fall short of allowing candidates to be effectively evaluated, and even more (58%) are more likely to advance candidates when they can show they have the desired skills. Among job seekers, nearly three-quarters want to prove they have the skills required for a job, and more than half would be more confident about applying for a job if they could prove they have the skills to do it.

Every business, as indeed the whole economy, is ultimately made up of human beings – individuals acting and reacting in ways that build success or failure. And, thus, it is people who make up the true strength of any company. Having the right set of people for the enterprise, who interact in productive ways and not counterproductive ways, is mission critical. It requires building a positive culture that matches the values and goals of the company, and this in turn requires employees who work well within and bolster that culture.

Emburse Introduces UKG Integration to Simplify Employee Onboarding and Reduce Expense

Emburse | May 17, 2021

Emburse, a global expense management pioneer, has announced a strategic partnership with UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group), a leading global supplier of HCM, payroll, HR service delivery, and workforce management systems, to simplify the labor-intensive phase of new employee expense management onboarding. Employee records created for new hires in UKG Pro, UKG Ready, and UKG Dimensions can instantly sync with Emburse Chrome River Expense and Emburse Certify Expense thanks to this technology collaboration. This integration automates a critical yet time-consuming part of the employee onboarding phase, enabling HR teams to concentrate on individuals rather than procedures. For organisations that employ all companies' HCM and expense management solutions, the Emburse and UKG integration has a host of immediate and long-term advantages. Employee records and filing lines are immediately applied to Emburse Chrome River Expense or Emburse Certify Expense as new recruits are added to a UKG solution. This saves time by eliminating the need for cost system managers to manually enter new user information. Furthermore, if an individual leaves a company, they are immediately excluded from the expense solution, removing the possibility of false expense submissions. “Our goal of making work feel human reaches beyond the end-user, the cost submitter. Administrators will waste a lot of time on repetitive, low-value manual jobs, which we want to automate as far as possible,” said Omar Qari, Emburse's head of corporate planning and market growth. “We collaborate closely with our technology partners to speed progress and offer quick applications that make our customers' lives easier. We will allow expense managers to spend less of their days on manual, error-prone processes and more on the things that are relevant to them and their companies thanks to this platform-level integration with UKG.” Mike May, senior director, UKG Partner Network at UKG, said, "UKG and Emburse have a common philosophy: we want HR to spend less time overseeing operations and more time focusing on improving the employee experience." “We will unburden teams by building a more people-centric future at work today by reinforcing the connection between people, operation, and technology.” About Emburse Emburse makes jobs more human by allowing business travellers, financial experts, and CFOs to automate time-consuming activities so they can concentrate on what really matters. Emburse Abacus, Emburse Captio, Emburse Certify, Emburse Chrome River, Emburse Cards, Emburse Nexonia, Emburse SpringAhead, and Emburse Tallie are among the company's award-winning cost and AP automation solutions.
