Increasing WOTC Screening Compliance with an Integrated Solution from ADP SmartCompliance

As Talent Management Compliance Manager for United Supermarkets, Marka Branson oversees many of the company’s compliance programs, including pre-employment screenings such as background checks, drug screening, I-9 compliance, unemployment claims and Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) for 17,000 employees in 96 stores, a manufacturing plant and two distribution centers. Marka recently spoke to us about her experience with ADP® and her relationship with her dedicated account manager, Lyn, who, along with ADP’s leading-edge technology for WOTC screening, helped remove the burden of manually screening applicants for WOTC, which resulted in an improvement in the financial benefits the company receives. Here’s what Marka had to say: Moving From Paper and Spreadsheets to Automated WOTC Screening Before we automated applicant screening for WOTC, we were using a paper packet.

Gil Walsh Interiors Enjoys the Perfect ‘Design’ for Payroll, Time and Attendance

Gil Walsh has built her success on amazing interior design. Her extraordinary eye for detail and use of unique colors and textures make each home she decorates beautiful. Six years ago, Gil hired Cathi Spiel to be the Director of Finance for the growing 14-employee company. Spiel arrived at Gil Walsh Interiors and quickly recognized the need to move away from inefficient manual, paper-based check-cutting for payroll to an automated process. When the company adopted the RUN powered by ADP® platform, they managed payroll electronically to simplify the process. But they needed more, so they enhanced their ADP payroll platform by integrating with TSheets time tracking for an automated time and attendance solution. With the combination of TSheets and RUN powered by ADP, Spiel has more freedom to focus on more important finance-related issues. Rather than spending hours each week doing administrative tasks like managing payroll and preparing financial reports, she now can focus much of her time on more strategic challenges.

In the article, Wolckenhauer offers her insights to help small business owners spark engagement among employees. Having worked in human resources for more than two decades, Wolckenhauer knows the importance of an engaged workforce. She shares what employee engagement really means: “Employee engagement, to me, means an all-around commitment by employees to their work, the values of the company and its people. Engaged employees are all in and feel they are part of something bigger. They understand that the job is hard sometimes, but because they love their job and are engaged in the work, they feel connected to the company’s mission, products, and people.” In fact, according to a study from the ADP Research Institute, the work itself, work hours and flexibility are among the top reasons people stay with a company. Wolchenhauer says that knowing that, managers need to make sure employees have clearly defined goals when it comes...
