What Makes Oracle Cloud HCM a Must-have for the Modern Retail Firms


Human Capital Management (HCM) solution is all about enabling businesses to manage their human resources across all aspects of employee needs. The immediate considerations might be attendance and payroll, but additional ones could be training and development, recruitment and onboarding, as well as overall employee performance.

In the COVID era, it is one of the most preferred cloud HCM solutions in the retail industry. It is one of the most connected solutions across an enterprise, with one cloud unifying HCM across supply chain, finance, and customer experience.
