HR Technology Interviews

Insights From a Savvy HR Tech Investor

  

Taras Polischuk, Talent Equity Ventures (TEqV) Shares His Strategies for Investing in HR Tech, and Predictions for 2015

Published on December 22 2014
Taras Polischuk, HR Tech Investor, interviewed by Peter Clayton -TotalPicture Radio Taras Polischuk

"It all comes down to the areas in the industry where HR Tech can actually add value. There are around 500 investment opportunities that I have evaluated in the last two years. However, most of these products' main problem is that they are a point solution; and are solving a very small part of the bigger problem that customers experience. What clients want is to buy a solution, not a product. They want a platform, and they are ready to pay premium for having it, for getting rid of their pain." Taras Polischuk

Happy Holidays! It's that time of year folks... everyone in our space is making predictions for HR Tech in 2015. Our special guest today is Taras Polischuk an investment professional in HR Tech, uniquely qualified to weigh-in on this topic. Taras wrote an excellent article on the SmartRecruiters Blog titled 4 Pillars to the Future of HR Technology -- (see the sidebar for the link to this, and other articles relating to our conversation today). This is great advice for those working in HR Tech, and those evaluating HR Tech products for their organizations.

Welcome to a special HR Technology podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton, in New York City to speak with Taras Polischuk. He works at Talent Equity Ventures, an HR tech-focused Venture Capital firm. He is a strategic advisor at Talent Tech Labs, (where we recorded this interview), a New York-based incubator for Talent Acquisition Technology companies. Taras is co-owner of Global #HRU, the co-organizer of HRTechTank, and a contributor to the SmartRecruiters Blog.

"The draft of the 17th-annual Sierra-Cedar (formerly CedarCrestone) definitive HR Systems Survey projects that, by next year, the number of organizations running cloud Core HR systems will overtake those running licensed, on-premise or hosted systems. The managers of the survey quickly concede it may take longer as organizations rarely change as rapidly as they plan." Bill Kutik

Bill Kutik Merit-Pay-Increase Matrix

  

An in-depth look at the corporate slight-of-hand hocus-pocus known as the merit-pay-increase matrix.

Published on September 26 2014
Bill Kutik - HR Executive Online columnist -TotalPicture Radio interviewBill Kutik

"HR software today rarely embodies that modern point of view. HR people and managers may talk the talk of HI-POs and all the rest, but compensation software doesn't really walk the walk. Certainly not the merit-pay-increase matrix, where salaries and bonuses are specifically determined."

In Bill Kutik's latest Human Resource Executive Online HR Technology Column titled Death to the Merit-Pay-Increase Matrix, he reveals how little "merit" is actually involved in determining annual salary increases. His opening paragraph is classic Kutik: "I have hated the merit-pay-increase matrix for 25 years."

Welcome to a HR Technology Channel vodcast and podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I'm Peter Clayton - and joining me today is Bill Kutik, HR Technology Columnist and leading independent industry analyst - who's been following recruiting automation since it began in 1988 - Bill is co-chair emeritus of the 17th Annual HR Technology┬« Conference & Exposition, returning to Las Vegas, Oct. 8-10, 2014.  Bill is a frequent contributor to TotalPicture Radio and I'm happy to have him back to discuss the corporate slight-of-hand hocus-pocus know as the merit-pay-increase matrix.

If you're involved with your company's HCM software, you're probably aware of the dreaded annual maintenance fees associated with most on-premise software. You may also be aware that the rules of the maintenance game are changing.

Questions Peter Clayton asks Bill Kutik

Tell us about your annual tour and some of the highlights from Silicon Valley this year.

As I mentioned in the open, the rules of the maintenance game for on-premise software are changing - your latest HR Executive Online column is titled: Oracle & SAP Encircle Their On-Premise Base - give us some context.

Generally speaking, maintenance fees are quite expensive, are they not?

What do the customers get?

Well that sounds like quite a lot - so why do end-users hate maintenance fees?

You had mentioned Workday - how does Workday figure into what Oracle and SAP are doing?

How is the conversion from on-premise to SaaS being marketed?
