Synchrony Global: Strengthening the HCM Space with Cloud HR Solutions

Toyota, the automobile giant made headlines in 2010 due to its mechanical failures and ended up mishandling the issue in the public eye. While the reason of all the suffering was the mechanical failures, the HR processes added to the woes. The root cause of the situation was the employees’ inability to make good decisions, confront negative news and make convincing business case for immediate action and the weak HR processes were to be blamed. And, similar is the story of various other businesses which fail due to inappropriate and mismanaged Human Capital Management systems. Such instances create the need for appropriately managed HCM solutions, which is aptly addressed by Synchrony Global, a leading Cloud HR solution provider.
