  • isolved: Innovation, Platform Maturity & Client Development

    Sep 24, 2021, by Elizabeth Rennie

    This past week I had the privilege of attending isolved’s Connect annual user conference at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida.

  • OSVAtmosphere: Removing the Mystery from HR & Payroll Service Delivery

    Oct 07, 2020, by Elizabeth Rennie

      The recent impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic exposed many HR and payroll service delivery models as being unequipped and unprepared to pivot to remote work, access the data needed to obtain government support, and move money to employees in a timely and compliant fashion. The pandemic also accelerated an already intensifying push toward digital HR and payroll adoption, particularly as[...]

    Jun 25, 2020, by Elizabeth Rennie

      Earlier in the month on the NelsonHall HR Quarterly Buyer Market Round-Up session, many buyers agreed that compliance is going to be a bigger issue in 2020 and beyond than it was before.  Before it was just table stakes, now it is about survival, and with the new WFH (Work from Home) structures, the risks are higher.
