About this Constellation ShortList

A global Human Capital Management (HCM) suite is a collection of key HCM functionality covered by a single vendor across multiple countries. In regards to functionality, Constellation looks for strong HR core and payroll capabilities as the main areas of functional necessity, but vendors equally must have some talent management, workforce management and benefits functionalities. As for geographical focus, it’s required for vendors to operate in at least three continents and cover two-thirds of the world’s GDP. 

To ensure vendors are compliant with legal and statutory requirements, they need to have employees in countries in which they operate with the dedicated purpose of monitoring legislation and best practices. Partnerships for this purpose are acceptable and included but don’t score as strong as native/in-house expert access. 

Threshold Criteria

Constellation considers the following criteria for these solutions:

  • HR core
  • Payroll
  • Some talent management 
  • Some workforce management (needs to support payroll at a minimum)
  • Some benefits management (in this area, partnerships are the most acceptable)
  • Support for more than three continents
  • Cover at least two-thirds of the world’s GDP
