This past summer, Ultimate Software launched HR Spark, a Web series designed to ignite ideas for your people and your business. The show brought together some of the industry’s top influencers and subject-matter experts for panel discussions about today’s challenges in HCM and tomorrow’s HR technology solutions. Topics ranged from hearing the voice of your employees and establishing a positive workplace culture to the rise of the remote workforce and advances in “People First” artificial intelligence. Today, we’re excited to bring you an all-new video series, HR Spark: Leadership Edition. Join Bill Hicks, Ultimate’s chief relationship officer, as he travels across North America for insightful conversations about leadership development. In the series premiere (the first of a two-part episode), Bill sits down with Richard Outram, chief financial officer at Cross Country Home Services. They share some of their most successful management strategies and the key takeaways they’ve learned in over two decades of leading people. Whether you’re an aspiring leader, first-time manager, or experienced executive, you’re sure to learn something new. Check out HR Spark: Leadership Edition today. Ultimate Software’s #12DaysofHCM is back by popular demand! During the next two weeks, we’ll recap some of the most talked about topics from 2017, and preview what’s ahead for 2018.
