Here in the new year, 2019, we have entered our 32nd year in business.
It is the privilege and good fortune of Willwork to count as our valued clients, companies and other organizations across just about all business and commerce sectors. Our clients include some of the largest, most successful, and most established multinationals … and small, recently launched enterprises that you probably have not heard of … but you will, just please give it a little time.
All Willwork clients receive our same uncompromising excellence in service and attention.
For this early-in-the-new-year post, we felt it appropriate to highlight and feature a recently-started collaboration of two Willwork clients. It is a collaboration that represents one of the most exciting and empowering commercial uses today of artificial intelligence (AI) – the next great and transformative dimension in computing and machine intelligence.
IBM is synonymous worldwide with computing and information technology. Founded in 1911, it employs 380,000 and serves 177 countries. Over the years, its employees have been awarded five Nobel Prizes, five National Medals of Science (USA), five National Medals of Science and Innovation (USA), and six A.M. Turing Awards.
Nicknamed Big Blue, IBM pioneered AI and performs the most advanced work in the field.
Kronos, among its fellow international technology leaders, is a relative baby, having been founded in 1977. It is also the world’s premier developer of workforce and human capital management software and services. Kronos employees 5,300.
The IBM-Kronos collaboration – announced on November 4 of last year – joins the AI-powered solutions of IBM Watson Talent with Kronos’s Workforce Dimensions to help companies best manage talent and human resources.
IBM Watson Talent is powered by IBM’s famed Watson, the smartest AI computing and machine-learning system on the planet.
Workforce Dimensions is built on Kronos D5™, the vanguard for intelligent cloud-based HR computing platforms.
As stated in a Kronos media announcement, the IBM-Kronos “collaboration will help improve the engagement, performance, career development, and retention of hourly workers and simplify the complex task of managing this important segment of the global workforce.”

Beyond this project being a cooperative effort of Willwork clients, we are also keenly interested in the project because hourly workers are a large segment of the Willwork workforce and business.
Expect the IBM-Kronos collaboration to deliver winning and major results on a regular basis.
Willwork will report and provide updates in this space on the results of the collaboration– and how the teamwork of IBM and Kronos are empowering and enabling organizations to optimize and make most efficient their talent management and HR operations.
