Sift in Detroit, a people directory for companies that empowers employees with organizational knowledge, today announced it has formed a strategic collaboration with Ultimate Kronos Group (UKG) to help organizations drive a technology-enabled, human-centric future of hybrid work.
According to Sift, 87 percent of workers surveyed this year want to work at home at least one day a week, while business leaders fear diminished collaboration and employee engagement. Disparate work environments can make it harder for team members to know who their colleagues are, what they do, and how to connect with them.
Sift’s human capital management (HCM) platform aims to help organizations paint a fuller picture of their employees, projects, and teams by connecting disparate people data sources while providing everyone in an organization with an easy-to-use application to search and find anyone by their skills, interests, role, and more.
“As organizations explore long-term hybrid working arrangements, being able to easily identify colleagues by skillset, role, or project team will be vital to planning and development,” says Mike May, senior director of the UKG Connect Technology Partner Program at UKG. “By collaborating with technology partners such as Sift, we’re able to help our customers create more agile and adaptive workforces.”
Key elements of the collaboration include:
- Integration between Sift and UKG Pro to enable key people data to flow seamlessly to the Sift platform via UKG-certified connector between applications.
- Joint marketing initiative to generate awareness of the combined platform and share best practices.
“UKG and Sift share a common belief that when people feel valued, they’re empowered to tap into their unique talents for the good of themselves, their company, and their communities,” says Larry Angeli, CEO of Sift. “That foundational belief became the center of our technology teams’ combined effort to integrate the solutions to the benefit of our mutual customers.”
