UKG | June 09, 2022

Manufacturing_Blog.jpg
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.

Tango | June 15, 2022

Tango, the leading Workflow Intelligence Platform that streamlines the creation of process documentation, today announced its $14 million Series A funding, bringing its total funding to $19.7M. Tiger Global Management led the round, with Slack Fund and Atlassian Ventures participating. Existing Tango investors also participated and included Wing VC, General Catalyst, GSV Ventures, Red Sea Ventures, and Outsiders Fund. In conjunction with the funding, Zach DeWitt, Partner at Wing VC, will join Tango's board of directors. Tango's Workflow Intelligence Platform provides the insights necessary to scale business operations by standardizing best practices, onboarding and training new hires more quickly, and improving employee performance. Through its Chrome Extension and Desktop Application, Tango automatically captures processes in real-time and generates instantaneous, beautiful step-by-step how-to guides that can easily be exported or embedded into learning management systems and knowledge bases. Since the launch of its Chrome Extension in September 2021, Tango quickly scaled to 100,000 users in just eight months and became Product Hunt's second most upvoted product of 2021. "Slack charted the course for bottoms-up adoption. We strongly believe great collaboration tools have undeniable product-led DNA. Tango has this in spades, and we have incredibly high conviction in the team's ability to define the category," - Jason Spinell of Slack Fund Introducing Workspaces Over 25,000 teams are currently using Tango, highlighting the need for functionality that can serve entire organizations.

With real insights into how work is getting done, organizations can standardize best practices from top performers, identify knowledge gaps, and support employees to improve their performance and career satisfaction.

Tango will use the funding to continue focusing on new internal collaboration features for both the creator and the consumer of documentation. Tango envisions a future of work where documentation mirrors the organization: a living, dynamic approach to internal knowledge.
