UKG Helps Businesses Navigate Labor Shortage with New UKG Marketplace Applications

Technology collaborations help UKG customers further simplify recruiting, developing, and retaining great talent

As organizations continue to grapple with the perpetual labor shortage, UKG, a leading provider of HR, payroll, and workforce management solutions for all people, welcomed new technology partners focused on hiring, retaining, and developing people into the UKG Marketplace.

“With more than 250 overall partners, UKG actively collaborates with solution providers that play a critical role in our customers’ IT infrastructure to simplify the employee technology experience,” said Mike May, vice president of technology partnerships at UKG. “By leveraging our open-platform architecture, we’re able to help UKG customers become even more responsive to the constantly changing needs of both their people and their businesses, especially during the labor shortage.”

Source More Candidates with the Right Skills

There are more than 11 million job openings across the U.S. — nearly twice as many as available job candidates. The UKG Marketplace has added pre-built integrations with Appcast, which provides programmatic job advertising software; CareerBuilder, a leading source for job opportunities and advice; and Phenom, which delivers artificial intelligence (AI)-powered talent experiences to help global enterprises hire, develop, and manage their people. Additionally, Paradox’s conversational recruiting assistant can help candidates apply for jobs via chat or text messaging.

As organizations work to shorten interview timelines to ensure they don’t miss out on qualified candidates, enhanced data sharing between UKG and CangradeHarver, and Humantelligence allows organizations to benefit from their preferred solution, each of which provides a unique suite of tools and technology to ensure job fit, leverage data-driven assessments, or optimize hybrid or remote team effectiveness.

Be Deliberate About Pay Equity, Help People Maximize Compensation and Pay Student Loans

The introduction of Trusaic’s PayParity to the UKG Marketplace provides organizations with an enhanced pay equity auditing solution with real-time equity analytics and an option for professional consultations, complementing existing pay equity tools within UKG solutions. As part of its commitment to pay equity, UKG recently announced a historic multi-year partnership with the National Women’s Soccer League in support of the UKG Close the Gap campaign.

With HCR Software’s CompXL, compensation professionals have access to best-in-class compensation and incentive modeling. Additionally, organizations can now offer employees expanded integrated financial wellness offerings with Vault, which provides student loan repayment optimization strategies and counseling and makes it easier for employers to make repayment contributions.

Develop People Today to Keep Them Tomorrow

According to a recent UKG report, a perceived lack of career development opportunities is one of the top reasons that both employees and managers are quitting their jobs during the labor shortage. Now, in addition to the performance development and learning tools available in UKG ProUKG Ready, and UKG Dimensions, organizations can create more seamless performance workflows with Betterworks, HRSoft’s PERFORMview, and PerformYard to better provide continuous feedback, align goals with organizational objectives and performance, and foster more productive conversations about long-term career aspirations.

“Our technology partners provide a powerful complement to the award-winning UKG Life-work Technology approach to solution design, helping to streamline workflows and reduce the friction people often face while navigating multiple business apps every day,” said May. “When solution providers prioritize collaboration, open and extensible platforms, and the employee experience, we’re able to ensure that people — not processes — are kept at the center of workplace experiences.”
