Oyster | November 07, 2023
Oyster acknowledges the fact that while global employment and distributed hiring offer immense potential, they also present complex challenges, including legal and compliance issues, tax considerations, local competition, and employee expectations. To mitigate these issues, the company has unveiled a comprehensive range of offerings, such as Oyster Embedded, Oyster API, and integrations with industry-leading platforms like Zapier, Personio, and Slack.
With Oyster Embedded, industry partners can integrate global recruitment, payroll, incentives, and employment analytics into their software platforms, enhancing the user experience with customizable web flows and pre-filled data. Additionally, the Oyster API allows partners to incorporate a wide range of global employment features directly into their products.
Oyster Co-Founder and CEO Tony Jamous remarked.
Global employment distributes opportunities equally around the world. When everyone has access to the best jobs, anyone can realize their full potential—and Oyster is driven to overturn the status quo.

The Oyster API streamlines integration, enabling partners and customers to connect Oyster with their preferred tools. It empowers partners to embed Oyster in their products and customers to customize it to meet their needs, facilitating efficient data transfers, centralized payroll, and automated processes.
Furthermore, Oyster's Zapier integration, built upon the foundation of the Oyster API, provides customers with a connection to over 5,000 applications. This integration facilitates the efficient transfer of data, such as time off requests and new hire information, from Oyster to applications like MS Teams, Google Sheets, and Asana.
As Oyster Embedded facilitates access to global talent on a broader scale and enhances productivity and efficiency through the Oyster API, introducing new integrations simplifies the process of global employment. With the help of this, people in leadership and HR roles can save time, enhance team productivity, reduce errors, expedite the hiring process, and shift their focus to more impactful tasks.
Notably, the integration with Personio allows companies to synchronize records and time-off data. Besides, the Slack integration provides real-time notifications to managers and teams, facilitating swift actions throughout the employment lifecycle, be it monitoring the onboarding progress of a new hire, approving time off requests, receiving reminders regarding expenses and invoices, or tracking terminations, all within the Slack platform. These new integrations with Slack, Zapier, and Personio complement Oyster's existing array of integrations spanning HRIS, ATS, ERP, expense management, and security platforms.
Oyster is a renowned employment platform that empowers companies to recruit, compensate, and support their international workforce. This platform is a lifeline for growing businesses, enabling them to provide their global team members with a seamless and rewarding employment experience, all while sidestepping the typical challenges and expenses associated with international employment.

Avature, a leading provider of innovative Human Capital Management (HCM) software for recruiting and talent management, announces the beta release of its social learning solution to a select group of customers, and a general release before the end of this year.
Industry reports indicate a very low and steadily declining percentage of employees' use of their company learning management system (LMS) on a regular basis. However, HR can reverse this lack of engagement by allowing employees to learn in the same way they have on YouTube, TikTok and other channels. Avature's social learning solution creates this type of user experience by lifting proven design concepts from social media, including the easy creation of user-generated content, the generation of algorithmically driven suggestions, and the use of artificial intelligence.
Avature Learning is expected to promote organizational agility and engagement by facilitating the sharing of know-how, a company's most valuable asset. Intended to complement or replace customers' legacy LMS depending on how it is deployed, this solution allows HR leaders to compensate for the lost interaction between work-from-home employees, ensures knowledge is transferred from one generation to another and helps address the alarming declines in competencies and skills being reported across the educational spectrum.
Providing numerous opportunities to acquire knowledge, Avature Learning offers an employee-centered learning experience, where subject matter experts are able to share critical know-how that might otherwise go undocumented, and content is organically curated based on user feedback and social interaction.
Employees can easily find and recommend user-generated video and audio content as well as traditional training and courses, benchmark their progress against peers, obtain mentorships and create ad hoc meet ups and face-to-face learning sessions. With this solution, employers can effortlessly boost the value of their training programs, better facilitate internal mobility and accelerate time to productivity while lowering turnover.
We believe learning must go beyond traditional L&D programs to remain strategically relevant, shared Dimitri Boylan, Founder and CEO of Avature. The ideal technology should help mine a workforce's wealth of knowledge and facilitate its dispersion. Our customers want to uncover the 'voice of the employee' and bring learning to life, he added.
Industry analyst Josh Bersin was able to see the solution in action and highlighted the benefits of its unique social approach, "The vast amount of corporate learning that takes place is not authored by the training department. It is authored by experts, passionate professionals and peers. So, we need a "social learning" platform that lets people author and upload videos and other forms of content and then quickly and easily check it, publish it and make it easy to find. This is what Avature has built."
Avature Learning also seeks to put HR in control of its digital transformation and offers numerous tactical opportunities to design and deploy processes that grow the company's collective IQ and drive the business toward its strategic objectives. With built-in CRM functionality and real-time analytics, HR teams are provided with the best engagement toolkit to target content, measure employee's progress and ensure they're keeping pace with learning objectives.
From a business standpoint, Josh Bersin agrees the solution's features enable successful knowledge transfer, "I've always believed that 70 to 80 percent of the knowledge and intellectual property within a company is custom to that company's business. Every business process, proprietary tool, and internal procedure represents a custom, internal training need. Platforms like Avature's Learning Hub can tap into this."
Avature's learning solution can seamlessly integrate into customers' existing talent technology ecosystem using Avature's mature and configurable REST endpoints and open API framework. Data from other systems can be imported and used by Avature's workflow engine to promote learning activities for individual employees and data can be easily exported to support onboarding and internal mobility processes in other systems.
With this release, Avature bolsters its Talent Management Suite, adding yet another best-in-class solution to the portfolio that its Global 2000 customer base can implement from a single platform.
Avature is a highly configurable enterprise HCM SaaS platform for talent acquisition and talent management, and the leading provider of CRM and ATS technology for human resources globally. Founded by Dimitri Boylan, co-founder and former CEO of HotJobs.com, Avature brings consumer-grade internet technology and digital innovation to human resources departments. Avature solutions include shared services sourcing, applicant tracking, career sites, campus and events recruiting, employee referral management, social onboarding, branded employee engagement, employee mobility and workforce optimization, employee case management, performance management and learning.
Used by 110 of the Fortune 500 in more than 164 countries and 32 languages, Avature delivers its services from its private cloud, located in data centers around the world. Learn more at www.avature.net.

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.
