Tackling ACA Compliance Allows Barton Malow to Focus on Strategic Growth Initiatives

The Challenge A Growing Company Deals with ACA Compliance Like many in her position, Sarah Bertolini, total compensation manager for Barton Malow Company, struggled with the new compliance demands brought about by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Dealing with the ACA’s complex reporting requirements and knowing what to do, and when to do it, to mitigate compliance risks and penalties could easily have been an overwhelming full-time job, requiring regulatory expertise and hours that Bertolini and other in-house resources simply didn’t have. Additionally, Barton Malow, a top-performing North American contractor that specializes in large-scale commercial construction, such as higher education, automotive and health care, had almost doubled its employee base in three years, making ACA compliance even more complicated. Bertolini needed a proactive solution and expertise to help her manage ACA compliance, including determining offer of coverage eligibility and monitoring important regulatory changes that might affect her company, so she could focus on her everyday tasks and job responsibilities. “ACA was just so overwhelming and constantly changing, as it...

Avoid These Traps When Disciplining Employees

When an employee’s conduct or performance becomes an issue, employers need to take steps to correct the problem and prevent it from reoccurring. This isn’t always easy, and additional problems can arise if you don’t handle the situation carefully. Here are some discipline related pitfalls to avoid: Inconsistency. Disciplinary practices that reflect favoritism, or otherwise treat similarly situated employees differently, can lead to discrimination complaints and decreased morale. Train supervisors on how to enforce your policies and procedures on a consistent basis. Before disciplining an employee, look at how you handled similar situations in the past and make sure decisions are reviewed by more than one individual (such as, HR and an impartial member of the management team). Lack of flexibility. While policies should be enforced consistently, reserve the flexibility to take disciplinary action based on the facts and circumstances of each case. For example, don’t state that a verbal warning will be given for all first offenses no matter how severe. In your employee handbook, make clear that...

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Soumaia Mawad

How does an engineer successfully manage a sales division and a family? Figure out what works and what doesn’t, then do more of the first. When Soumaia Mawad was starting her mechanical and electrical engineering program in college, she could not have imagined running a regional sales division for an HR technology company. But part of being a great engineer is being willing to test and try things until you find out what works best. Soumaia’s approach is simply this: See past your expectations; be open to possibilities you haven’t thought of; then test, evaluate, and be willing to do things differently. Her comprehension of the differences between how you understand things going in and what they really are was crystalized when her family immigrated to the United States from Egypt when she was almost 7. Soumaia and her older sister share the same birthday two years apart. Therefore, that same year, their parents introduced them to their new country with a birthday trip to Disneyland. Soumaia and her...
