Rizing believes true business transformation comes from within and that understanding and responding to employee experiences within your business is a pivotal step . With Rizing Employee Experience Insights, we are committed to empowering organizations to use experience and operational data to spark productive change.

- Luc Hédou, CEO of Rizing's Human Capital Management line of business

 

With EXI, Rizing Goes Beyond Product Implementation

Rizing distinguishes the Qualtrics solutions they offer with their ability to advise customers on all stages of enabling an end-to-end experience management solution that makes sense for their unique businesses, and that maximizes people data across software solutions. The solution integrates the ability to collect and analyze data with Rizing's capabilities to build experience assessments and counsel clients on how to use data to effect positive change. Rizing's human capital management (HCM), organizational training and development, and change management professionals understand how to frame the questions each unique business needs.

Additionally, Rizing can gather data from any system and pull it into Lyra, Rizing's proprietary analytics platform. Lyra can consume data from any system. Lyra then combines operational data with experience data from Qualtrics to propel data-driven decisions across the entire people-related ecosystem: from core HR and payroll through talent management, contingent workforce management, and travel and expense management.

Employee Experience Insights Adapts to Customer Needs

Rizing Employee Experience Insights delivers solutions adapted to what the customer needs, whether the customer prefers a do-it-yourself approach, guidance while building their survey or a full-service approach. With EXI, Rizing enables employers of all sizes to begin measuring and responding to employee experiences. This can be vital to business success. Studies by Gallup have shown that the ability to increase employee engagement can mean as much as three times more revenue.

We are excited to welcome Rizing to the Qualtrics Partner Network. With Rizing's expertise in HR and Qualtrics' leading experience management platform, we will help organizations around the world realize the positive people and business outcomes that the right technology and expertise can drive.

- R.J. Filipski, Global Director of Business Development, Qualtrics


"Experience management is absolutely essential across the industries we serve," said Mike Maiolo, CEO of Rizing. "The ability to measure and improve experiences for customers and, in fact, all stakeholders is what differentiates one company from another. With the launch of EXI, we're able to do that for Rizing customers with personalized services and real-time data from Qualtrics."

HR STRATEGY

McLean & Company Launches HR Strategy for Industry to Build Leadership Capabilities for Today's Environment

McLean & Company | March 09, 2022

McLean & Company, the trusted partner of HR and leadership professionals globally, has published new research and a strategy to help organizations build and develop personal and organizational leadership capabilities. The integrated leadership capabilities outlined in the recently released research will reduce failure and harness influence to thrive in today's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. To be successful in the current market, leaders need to adopt new frameworks for leadership and decision making. Those that continue to lead in traditional ways will struggle to compete. The 2021 McLean & Company Employee Engagement Survey, with 157 organization contributors, indicates that only 47% of executive leadership teams inspire their employees. Poor leadership is the most significant cause of employee disengagement, and it's clear that a new approach to leadership is required. This new research outlines the root causes of why leaders are failing, which include: Poor decision making – Leaders must make more decisions in a shorter period of time, yet the way leaders make decisions has not evolved. Insufficient adaptability – Leaders must model resilience and course-correct appropriately in today's continuously changing environment. However, transformations and leaders are regularly failing, indicating a lack of appropriate response. Lack of followership – Leaders must engage their followers to stand behind decisions and work together to reach a common goal. Unfortunately, today's approach to leadership no longer resonates with most employees. Mclean & Company's integrated leadership strategy will help leaders understand the core complications in their organization. The framework focuses on three different primary functions of an organization: operating environment complications, technological complications, and behavioral complications. The firm's integrated leadership paradigm will set leaders up for success through five elements: Be Planful Learn to Learn Distribute Leadership Activate Networks Incorporate Influence Media professionals are encouraged to register for McLean & Company's Media Insiders program for more research and insights. This complimentary program provides unrestricted, on-demand access to HR, IT, and software industry content and the ability to speak with subject-matter experts from a group of more than 200 research analysts and thought leaders.

IT Workers Will Be Hard to Find and Keep in 2022

SHRM | December 14, 2021

Three recently published reports suggest that while the demand for technology will remain high in 2022, skilled IT workers will be hard to find and difficult to keep. These trends will disrupt technology projects, but they will also close the gap between technology and HR leaders according to a survey report titled The Impact of Technology in 2022 and Beyond: an IEEE Global Study. The report reveals that 97 percent of IT leaders agree that their team is working more closely than ever with human resource leaders to implement workplace technologies—though it may take longer than usual due to the staffing shortages. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) report, which was published in November, relied on 350 chief information officers, chief technology officers, IT directors and other technology leaders in the U.S., China, U.K., India and Brazil who work at organizations with more than 1,000 employees across multiple sectors. The IT leaders shared their views on the state of HR technology as the impact of COVID-19 continues to change the workplace. Respondents predict that in 2022 they'll have a plethora of difficult IT problems to solve: Maintaining strong cybersecurity for a hybrid workforce of remote and in-office workers (83 percent). Managing return-to-office health and safety protocols, software, apps and data (73 percent). Deciding what technologies are necessary for their company in the post-pandemic future (68 percent). Recruiting technologists and filling open tech positions will be difficult to do in the year ahead (73 percent). A survey published in October by TalentLMS, part of the Epignosis Group of Companies, and recruiting software company, Workable, suggests there's more trouble ahead. The companies polled 1,200 IT workers for its report and found 72 percent of respondents in the U.S. said they are thinking of quitting their jobs in the next 12 months. Respondents cited several reasons to quit, with 41 percent saying their jobs had limited career progression, 40 percent noting a lack of flexibility in working hours, and 39 percent citing a toxic work environment. "The percentage of IT workers [who] are thinking about quitting their jobs is higher than I would imagine," - Periklis Venakis, chief technology officer at Epignosis. Venakis said employers will have to adapt to remote work, which will continue after the pandemic ends. He added that HR should see this as an opportunity because companies can find employees in markets that were closed to them prior to the pandemic. One company that is watching its IT staff turnover rates is Cloudflare Inc., an infrastructure and website security company based in San Francisco. According to Janet Van Huysse, Cloudflare's senior vice president and chief people officer, since the pandemic began, the company's employee turnover rate peaked in May 2021. Cloudflare has more than 2,200 employees and an IT organization of 964 workers globally. "Since March 2020, the IT organization accounted for approximately 30 percent of all our terminations, most of which were voluntary, Primarily, these were due to either career progression, opportunities elsewhere, or because of performance or capabilities fit," -Janet Van Huysse, Cloudflare's senior vice president and chief people officer She agreed with the 2021-2023 Emerging Technology Roadmap for Large Enterprises report from Gartner Inc., published in September, in which 64 percent of IT executives cite talent shortages as the most significant barrier to the adoption of emerging technology, compared with only 4 percent in 2020. Gartner's survey also showed that among the technology areas affected by IT talent shortages are computer infrastructure and platform services, network, security, digital workplace, IT automation, storage and database systems. IT executives cited talent availability as the main adoption risk factor for the majority of IT automation technologies (75 percent) and nearly half of digital workplace technologies (41 percent). Yet across all technology domains, 58 percent of respondents reported either an increase or a plan to increase emerging technology investment in 2021, compared with 29 percent in 2020. As companies seek IT skills, Huysse said HR leaders need to be open-minded about where talent comes from and embrace unconventional paths to tech by using more inclusive hiring strategies. She added that looking in unconventional areas for talent also means seeking applicants from more geographies. While a larger talent pool diversifies the candidate pipeline, it also creates more complexities for organizations. HR leaders must be flexible in their approach and be ready to support teams and leaders as they make this transition.
