Rockland Trust Uses Oracle HCM Cloud for Talent, Mobility, Data-Driven Decisions [CON5737]

Monday October 02
2:15 PM – 3:00 PM
Moscone South - Room 216

Rockland Trust is a full-service commercial bank headquartered in Massachusetts. The company faced three challenges: talent acquisition and retention in a tight New England labor market, fragmented data silos with no single source of truth, and inaccurate and unreliable reporting hampering data-driven decision-making. Rockland saw that inefficient recruitment used up resources that hurt organizational efficiency, which in turn hampered reporting and analytics. In this session learn how Rockland deployed Oracle HCM Cloud and Oracle Taleo Enterprise Cloud Service, and enabled mobile access from anywhere, increased employee flexibility, lowered manager approval times, and is improving visibility and control with a single source of reliable data across the company.
