Ultimate Software

Decision-makers love data. In fact, in the sixth annual “ Big Data Executive Survey ” representing senior executives from 57 large corporations, 99% of responders reported transitioning to a more data-driven culture and a full 97.2% had invested in Big Data and AI initiatives. Yet only one-third considered themselves successful in developing a data-driven organization, a disconnect that’s been apparent since the first survey in 2012.

15Five

For years, leaders in the HR/Management space, academics, and top business minds have all sought to define organizational culture. They have largely failed. This is, of course, no easy task. Culture is nebulous, something that we feel but just can’t put a name to. It’s like the immortal soul.

Visier - Talent Acquisition

For example, AI can choose candidate sources, predict candidate performance, offer coaching and learning, and even suggest employee pay levels. Yet, a recent IBM survey suggests that only 66% of CEOs believe cognitive computing can drive significant value in HR, and only 50% of HR executives recognize that cognitive computing has the power to transform key dimensions of HR. Are these leaders missing the point?

Employee morale. Wikipedia defines it as job satisfaction or a feeling of well-being in the workplace. But morale offers more than just happiness.
