Randstad | February 01, 2021

The course will cover a wide of topics including; financial services, career readiness, non-clinical services, technology, business acumen, and account management. According to the announcement, the program will be offered at no cost to the participants.

Karen Fichuk, CEO of Randstad North America and Community Impact Director for the TRANSCEND program, said, “The TRANSCEND program is yet another step in our goal to reskill 40,000 American workers and to provide additional resources to impact economic equity for diverse populations. We are seeing that workers are committed to learning new skills to stay competitive in the labor market and we think that every community should have the opportunity to rise to the challenge and solidify their career goals”.

To fill the digital skills gap issue for employers, Randstad US has also partnered with Udemy, Inc. to upskilling tech roles and skills such as AI, ML, Cloud, Python, and Amazon Web Services. It’s believed that employers play a key role in employee development to help meet this gap. Several tech giants such as Microsoft and Google have launched initiatives similar to Randstad's.

Oracle Fusion Cloud HCM Now Supports Payroll in France

Oracle | June 01, 2022

On May 31st, leading software solutions provider Oracle, announced that it plans to launch Oracle France Payroll, a tool on the Oracle Fusion Cloud HCM. The new solution will enable organizations to navigate compliance, develop automated workflows and accelerate payroll processing for employees in France. The Oracle France Payroll addition to the Oracle Cloud HCM will deliver integrated support for countries like Bahrain, China, Qatar, Canada, Kuwait, Mexico, U.A.E, U.K. and the U.S., with support for India and Oman to follow. France is known for having the most complex payroll in all of Europe. The country requires employers to withhold and report income for a range of taxes on behalf of over 30 million French employees. "Payroll is one of the single most important functions for keeping a workforce running smoothly. Employees have zero tolerance for mistakes or delays when it comes to their compensation, no matter how complicated the local rules and regulations are. It's essential that organizations use a cloud-based payroll system that natively integrates with their core HR systems to automatically stay up to date with changes in regulations and their workforce. The upcoming launch of Oracle France Payroll is a huge opportunity for local and multinational companies operating in France to benefit from that integration in their HR and payroll operations." -Holger Muller, principal analyst, Constellation Research The Oracle France Payroll platform will empower organizations in multiple ways. One of them is eliminating manual processes and reducing payroll errors. The automation of highly complex rules will enable clients to easily meet compliance standards and reporting requirements. The platform will allow multinationals in France to expand their operations with one powerful payroll solution. "In France, the government and collective bargaining groups are constantly changing the laws and agreements regarding taxes and compensation in hopes of improving working conditions for employees. That can make it challenging for organizations to stay up-to-date on the latest processes they need to follow to pay their employees accurately and fairly. With Oracle France Payroll, local and multinational organizations with employees in France will be able to automate payroll operations to pay their workers quickly and accurately. Frequent and automatic updates will help ensure payroll operations are always in compliance, even as laws and contracts change." -Chris Leone, senior vice president of development, Oracle Cloud HCM

OMNIPRESENT LAUNCHES OMNIACADEMY TO EMPOWER HR PROS TO HIRE AND ONBOARD GLOBAL TALENT

OMNIPRESENT | August 05, 2022

Global employment partner Omnipresent today launches the OmniAcademy, a free online learning platform dedicated to helping HR professionals and senior leaders to grow successful, international businesses with ease. Developed by Omnipresent's team of HR experts, the OmniAcademy's first course - 'Everything you need to know about international hiring' - comprises 13 step-by-step videos with downloadable guides for time-strapped teams. This is the first in a series of courses, and those who complete them will receive certification for the skills developed in each course. 'We founded Omnipresent on the belief that borderless hiring is a key component in the future of work. And with organisations looking increasingly further afield to hire the best talent in a competitive market, HR leaders need to be equipped with the right information to guarantee a positive employee experience, wherever their employees are based. However, we know first hand that this can be extremely complex - our team of over 400 is currently based in 53 countries, so we've had to navigate these very challenges ourselves. This is why we've created the OmniAcademy: to help HR teams make the most of global work and create a seamless experience for their employees." -CEO and Co-founder of Omnipresent, Matthew Wilson The launch of the OmniAcademy comes at a time when 96% of HR professionals are facing challenges with 'future of work initiatives', but 47% 'don't know the best tactics or tools to overcome these issues'. All this in a post-pandemic world where they are tasked with delivering hybrid and remote set-ups, while maintaining a positive employee experience. About Omnipresent Founded in 2019, Global employment partner Omnipresent provides client-focused, tech-enabled business solutions combined with personalized expertise to support hiring people globally. Businesses looking to go global can hire and manage employees compliantly in more than 160 countries through the OmniPlatform, Omnipresent's proprietary digital platform and SaaS product.
