UKG | June 09, 2022
As organizations continue to grapple with the perpetual labor shortage, UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, today welcomed new technology partners focused on hiring, retaining, and developing people into the UKG Marketplace.
“With more than 250 overall partners, UKG actively collaborates with solution providers that play a critical role in our customers’ IT infrastructure to simplify the employee technology experience, By leveraging our open-platform architecture, we’re able to help UKG customers become even more responsive to the constantly changing needs of both their people and their businesses, especially during the labor shortage.”
-Mike May, vice president of technology partnerships at UKG.
There are more than 11 million job openings across the U.S. — nearly twice as many as available job candidates. The UKG Marketplace has added pre-built integrations with Appcast, which provides programmatic job advertising software; CareerBuilder, a leading source for job opportunities and advice; and Phenom, which delivers artificial intelligence (AI)-powered talent experiences to help global enterprises hire, develop, and manage their people. Additionally, Paradox’s conversational recruiting assistant can help candidates apply for jobs via chat or text messaging.
As organizations work to shorten interview timelines to ensure they don’t miss out on qualified candidates, enhanced data sharing between UKG and Cangrade, Harver, and Humantelligence allows organizations to benefit from their preferred solution, each of which provides a unique suite of tools and technology to ensure job fit, leverage data-driven assessments, or optimize hybrid or remote team effectiveness.
The introduction of Trusaic’s PayParity to the UKG Marketplace provides organizations with an enhanced pay equity auditing solution with real-time equity analytics and an option for professional consultations, complementing existing pay equity tools within UKG solutions. As part of its commitment to pay equity, UKG recently announced a historic multi-year partnership with the National Women’s Soccer League in support of the UKG Close the Gap campaign.
With HCR Software’s CompXL, compensation professionals have access to best-in-class compensation and incentive modeling. Additionally, organizations can now offer employees expanded integrated financial wellness offerings with Vault, which provides student loan repayment optimization strategies and counseling and makes it easier for employers to make repayment contributions.
According to a recent UKG report, a perceived lack of career development opportunities is one of the top reasons that both employees and managers are quitting their jobs during the labor shortage. Now, in addition to the performance development and learning tools available in UKG Pro, UKG Ready, and UKG Dimensions, organizations can create more seamless performance workflows with Betterworks, HRSoft’s PERFORMview, and PerformYard to better provide continuous feedback, align goals with organizational objectives and performance, and foster more productive conversations about long-term career aspirations.
At UKG, our purpose is people. As strong believers in the power of culture and belonging as the secret to success, we champion great workplaces and build lifelong partnerships with our customers to show what’s possible when businesses invest in their people. Born from a historic merger that created one of the world’s leading HCM cloud companies, our Life-work Technology approach to HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people helps more than 70,000 organizations around the globe and across every industry anticipate and adapt to their employees’ needs beyond just work.
