PrismHR, a Vensure Employer Solutions company and the leading HR technology software innovator for PEOs, ASOs and HCM providers across the U.S., today announced the launch of its Unified Employee Experience (UEX) update. Inspired by the award-winning Namely UI, PrismHR UEX leverages established design principles that make user tasks intuitive in any situation, and it includes new manager and employee views, expanded configuration options, higher levels of accessibility and improved responsiveness.
Kevin Andrews, president of PrismHR, said, “With PrismHR UEX, we wanted to bring a more modern, responsive, and accessible experience to our users, which include HR outsourcers and their small and medium-sized business (SMB) clients. To do this, Rob Roberts, our director of user experience, and his team leveraged interaction design to redesign the steps in the flow. His team analyzed what our users are trying to do and identified their priorities before designing the steps in the flow, so it’s very natural for them. And this is just the start. There’s much more to come.”
As such, highlights of the initial PrismHR UEX rollout include:
New employee/manager split views to give the right people the right information at the right time.
Customized branding via the Employee Experience Configuration Tool to reflect titles, headers, primary links, buttons, and accent colors.
Accessibility capabilities that align with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA requirements to improve the experience for people with disabilities.
Unified navigation, guided workflows, and responsive views for desktop, tablet and mobile.
Alex Campos, CEO of Vensure Employer Solutions, said, Tackling a design project of this magnitude allowed the PrismHR team to think this through with fresh eyes. In doing so, we were able to marry form and function and present a greatly improved user experience that sets a new standard of excellence across the entire industry. PrismHR UEX doesn’t just look nicer—it also helps our customers’ clients accomplish their most important HR tasks easily and more efficiently.

To drive employee engagement, Paylocity has announced a comprehensive solution that bridges the recognition and rewards gap, further enhancing productivity and retention. Paylocity’s new Recognition & Rewards product builds on popular peer recognition capabilities that are already part of the Paylocity platform. Recognition & Rewards includes automation to recognize common moments that matter like birthdays or anniversaries, and customization to tailor rewards programs with cash redemption. Employees can also socially celebrate everyday moments of achievement with emojis and likes.

Unlocking the Power of Employee Feedback
Today, five different generations coexist in the workforce, bringing diverse mindsets and expectations to the office. Paylocity recognizes the pivotal role of organizational culture in talent retention. According to the 2022 Ernst & Young U.S. Generation Survey, more than 90% of employees consider culture a significant factor in their decision to stay with a company. Balancing the diverse interests and opinions of a multi-generational workforce presents a challenge for leaders, where effective communication is key to creating a harmonious workplace.
To address the critical issue of talent retention, Paylocity has introduced Employee Voice, which goes beyond traditional surveys by offering a unique approach to employee engagement and retention. Building on the Paylocity platform’s existing AI capabilities, Employee Voice combines cutting-edge technology with rigorous scientific principles, underpinned by a proprietary, statistically validated engagement model developed by Paylocity's Data Science team. Any organization, regardless of size, can leverage AI to automatically delve into employee sentiment. The resulting data and insights are easily made available to executives and managers to identify key drivers of engagement without overburdening HR teams. Employee Voice offers a foundation of best-practice action items, built from the experiences of more than 36,000 Paylocity clients, to help leaders track progress as they address the needs of their organizations.
Empowering Workers in a Mobile-First World
With today's workforce being more distributed and increasingly reliant on mobile devices, the need for seamless and intuitive mobile access continues to be critical. Acknowledging this shift, Paylocity has rolled out its next-generation mobile app. Building on the success of previous versions, this update includes a modern, intuitive home screen that unifies the information most relevant to each employee—new messages, tasks to complete, timesheets, and even an online hub where they can get important updates from leaders and connect with their peers. Customizable navigation ensures access to individuals’ most-used features via a single tap.
At Paylocity, we are focused on providing innovative solutions that not only envision but deliver the future of HCM today, said Steve Beauchamp, co-CEO of Paylocity. We understand the workplace is evolving, and with it, the needs of employees and organizations. These latest advancements reflect our mission to stay at the forefront of this transformation and push the boundaries of modern HR.

Businesses and technology workers should acquire and implement new skills, including generative AI capabilities, “cautiously but continuously” as talent acquisition power swings back to the employer, says an expert with Information Services Group (ISG) leading global technology research and advisory firm.
Speaking during the annual All Day DevOps virtual event today, Ola Chowning, partner and Digital lead for ISG North Europe, said the rise of new AI technologies and increased globalization are changing the balance of power in the global market for IT talent. Software developers and IT operations professionals, she said, are being forced to skill up or be left behind.
2023 has been the year of widespread worry about the ‘AI-apocalypse. The potential implications of generative AI, the growing maturity of the DevOps skills market and the willingness of employers to source cost-effective digital talent from new geographies like Spain, Portugal, Mexico and Vietnam, have put additional strain on an already nervous talent market.
Chowning’s comments came during her 30-minute online presentation, “DevOps Talent & Skills - 2023 Update,” today at 1 p.m., U.S. Eastern Time. This is Chowning’s sixth consecutive appearance at All Day DevOps, the largest event of its kind in the industry.
In her presentation, Chowning explored how organizations and DevOps experts are coping with a changing global market for IT talent that is being impacted by technology that can deliver dramatic increases in productivity, and at the same time, also increase employee concerns over job stability.
Chowning said organizations and DevOps practitioners need to lean into AI’s abilities to generate original ideas, designs and solutions, simulate outcomes of creative strategies, allow team members to collaborate with less friction and deliver greater insight and efficiency with cautious optimism rather than fear, uncertainty or doubt.
“We are not in an AI apocalypse,” she said. “Companies that can stay agile in the face of rapid change in technology, promote self-learning and empower talent will see a real boost in innovation, productivity and continuous transformation. The key for businesses and DevOps practitioners alike is to proceed cautiously but continuously.”
Leaders should establish an AI architecture and environment (including appropriate policies as necessary) and educate IT teams in how to recognize, access and use the right AI tools for the right job, ideally through an already established cognitive framework and environment for AI tools and capabilities, she said.
“Technology employees know that natural language processors and service provider talent and skill sets in traditional and emerging geographies are likely to be part of organizations’ labor strategies,” Chowning said. “Despite this shift in power, deep technology skills and expertise will never lose their value. Organizations should be transparent about their company and IT values to attract employees even in turbulent times.”
The eighth annual All Day DevOps 24-hour live stream event started at 3 a.m., U.S. Eastern Time, today. The conference features 180 practitioner-led sessions, across six tracks: CI/CD Continuous Everything; Modern Infrastructure; DevSecOps; Cultural Transformation, Site Reliability Engineering and the Software Supply Chain.
