A Hard Look at HR Processes
We've been talking with a lot of HR leaders recently, and we've been hearing this often: implementing a cloud HR system pushed them to take a hard look at why they run the business like they do. Because Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud has many best practices built in as options, HR leaders are using their implementations as an opportunity to ask whether they should maintain some long-held, perhaps less efficient approaches. To explore this, we're devoting this issue of Cloud Leader to these HR transformation stories.

At Ruby Tuesday, HR Vice President Lois Collins welcomed the challenge to existing processes, and she describes her team's effort to digitize its HR processes in the article Ruby Tuesday Takes HR Digital to Better Engage Employees. A recent success for the HR team came in reducing the drop-off rate of candidates who start the job application process. Says Collins, "The first impression you make as a company is the minute that person applies to your organization." You can hear more stories like this below and get advice from experts, including Oracle CEO Mark Hurd.

Oracle's HCM Cloud Story: Build Engaging Employee Experiences by Challenging Assumptions
Oracle hires 20,000 employees each year. Recently the company moved many HR-related self-service transactions to Oracle Human Capital Management Cloud to create the foundation for better employee engagement, more insightful data, and greater efficiencies. "Since we went live, people have been telling me every day how much they like the new interface and how intuitive it is, especially managers who can now manage HR transactions and review employees in one place," writes Joyce Westerdahl, Oracle's executive vice president of human resources, in her article about Oracle's own journey to Oracle HCM Cloud.
Samuel, Son & Co. Builds a Single Workforce View with Oracle HCM Cloud
Samuel, Son & Co.'s C-suite wanted workforce metrics that could help the company manage talent better, but its human resources systems were too fragmented to provide such data. So the metals processor and distributor launched a project that will replace 13 HR and payroll systems with Oracle HCM Cloud. "It no longer makes business sense to implement an on-premises solution," says Scott Busch, vice president of human resources. Learn more about Samuel, Son & Co.'s plan.
Three Challenges Facing HR Leaders
Doug Reed, president of the Oracle HCM User Group (OHUG), cites three big challenges facing HR leaders: doing business globally with a consistent HR footprint; keeping up with the pace of change management, training, and education; and integrating HR systems, particularly with financial applications. Learn more about these challenges in a q&a with Reed, plus join him and other HR peers at the OHUG Global Conference, June 6–9 in New Orleans.
