Workhuman | December 09, 2022
Workhuman, a Workday (NASDAQ:WDAY) certified software partner, today announced that it has recertified its Workday integration to continue providing customers with a seamless experience that connects Workday HCM with the Workhuman Cloud. The integration makes it easy for employees to utilize features such as Social Recognition, Celebrations, Conversations, and more - right where they are working, without disrupting their workflow.
Workday HCM is a unified system that helps enable organizations to make faster decisions, gain operational visibility, prepare for future talent shifts, and build effective teams.
With this integration, a financial services company with nearly 2,000 employees is streamlining the data flows from Workday HCM to Workhuman, allowing data to quickly be configured, tested, and executed. The integration also allows for data consistency for both Workhuman participant data and updates to compensation systems.
“Workhuman’s integration with Workday HCM adds the transformative power of recognition and reward into an organization’s existing business processes, extending systems that the HR team is dependent on instead of replacing them, By combining the industry’s best recognition platform with Workday HCM, HR leaders now have the unique experience of boosting company culture and morale with recognition and providing the HR team with a more insightful view of each employee and how they are valued by their colleagues and teammates.”
-Chris Campbell, chief product officer at Workhuman
This integration captures recognition and rewards data for workers who reside in Workday HCM. It creates an interoperable link between the two systems, where Workday serves as the system of record for foundational and organizational worker data, and Workhuman manages the solution for rewards and recognition programs.
Elements within Workday that can be updated include one-time payments, Workday Payroll, external payroll input and Anytime Feedback. In 2022, Workhuman's upgraded, certified integration with Workday delivers a new client-hosted, self-service portal. The portal offers:
Highly configurable mapping between Workday and Workhuman employee definitions
Control of all inbound updates to Workday
Runtime monitoring and management of integration tasks

HR Acuity | January 17, 2023
HR Acuity, the only human resources SaaS solution provider for employee relations case management and investigations, recently announced its launch of the Employee Relations Quotient or ER/Q, the industry-first employee relations maturity model.
ER teams will be able to quickly establish a baseline for their current level of maturity based on the team's purpose, processes, and influence within the organization by using the ER/Q model. Once a baseline is set, the teams are able to identify the closest maturity profile and actionable suggestions for progress.
HR Acuity simplifies the ER/Q model for leaders to speed up maturity and reach their goals, whether they have an HR team that does everything, or a separate ER function with multiple experts. The ER/Q model consists of four levels, which helps identify where the organization stands and planning the actions accordingly.
"As the importance of employee relations skyrockets, ER professionals must have the ability to articulate both their vision for and the value they contribute to the organization. Teams with higher maturity levels communicate better with a variety of business stakeholders. As a result, they spend their time sharing insights and influencing policy conversations instead of putting out fires. Our new ER/Q is a perfect tool to help teams establish a realistic picture of where they are and feel confident about the steps they need to take to achieve their vision and improve their value," said Deb Muller, HR Acuity founder and CEO.
