Panel: Cutting through the fog

The first in our series of expert panels and interviews, on the topic of HCM Cloud Migration. We'll be speaking to users with first hand experience of overcoming hurdles and embracing the power of the cloud, while also speaking to industry experts on the wider trend of Cloud adoption in Human Resources.

Making the dream work

Zellis' leadership in payroll and HCM is founded on our extensive, unmatched market expertise. Chief Operating Officer Abigail Vaughan explains how we work in partnership with our customers, and the incredible things that can be achieved by teamwork.

Insight & Industry Trends within Background Checking and Onboarding
We interview two experts about the business-critical process of onboarding, from right to work and background checking to start date. You'll hear how improving the speed, accuracy and experience can pay huge dividends from improved employee retention, productivity and reduced risk of fines and errors.

Panel: Change is the only constant

Our second exclusive customer panel tackles the biggest question today: how have organisations changed over the course of the pandemic, and what strategies have proven most effective in building a more resilient, modern and future-fit business. We speak to leaders from some of the UK's most recognised employers, along with expert input from the CIPP.
