It’s Not Clairvoyance, It’s Data Science

How predictive analytics can bolster human insight We’re in a fierce era of ever-increasing competition for great, reliable data. Around a decade ago, at the start of the Big Data boom, businesses were just beginning to devise ways to capture and record data. Today, we’re asking, “How do we make our data stronger to deliver insights that are more meaningful?” For some companies, the answer’s been to hire data scientists to help interpret the huge amount of data that companies are collecting, internally and online. In fact, according to Glassdoor®, “Data Scientist” ranked as the best job in America in 2017 for the second year in a row. The growing demand for data analysts and scientists really goes to show how more companies are relying on data to help guide their workforce decisions and optimize their biggest asset: Their people. How can you help your organization embrace Big Data to gain workforce insights? ADP’s Marc Rind, Vice President of Product Development and Chief Data Scientist shared his thoughts with...

Veterans: A Talent Pool That is Critical to the Sustained Growth of Our Economy

By Tom Hiebert, Senior Director, Veterans Initiatives At ADP, we believe that the concept of employability is a critical social and business imperative. It means helping people access the skills and opportunities they need to succeed in the workforce. But this isn’t just a feel-good initiative – it addresses a real business need. As the U.S. labor market continues towards full employment, with more than 15 million jobs added in the past seven years, employers are now in a position where they have to attract and retain new sources of talent with the skills they need. As our CEO, Carlos Rodriguez, recently stated in the Business RoundtableSM 2017 Sustainability Report, “One source of great talent in this tightening labor market is our Veteran community. Our Veterans are incredibly resilient and possess great leadership, management, and innovative problem-solving skills that businesses today need to succeed.” ADP has created a mission of our own, to give Veterans and their spouses the employment opportunities they deserve. To help with this, we strive...

CPA Practice Advisor Features ADP’s 5 Tips to Help Navigate Pay Equity

CPA Practice Advisor published an article by Ellen Feeney, vice president and counsel in ADP’s Global Compliance Group,titled “5 Tips to Help Navigate Pay Equity,” which provides accounting firms with some best practices regarding equitable pay practices. “As yet another regulatory deadline looms, you’d think companies would be making EEO-1 compliance a priority. Interestingly, that’s frequently not the case. According to ADP Research Institute® data, when it comes to awareness of the new EEOC requirements, just over half of midsized and nearly three-quarters of large companies are aware of these requirements, but only 20 percent report having a plan in place to manage them. And just about half of companies feel extremely or very confident they will be able to comply with the law by 2018.” Read the entire article at CPA Practice Advisor.

Leadership in the “New World Order” Starts with Communication

By Debbie Dyson, Corporate Vice President, Client Experience & Continuous Improvement “Leadership in the New World Order” is a topic we recently addressed at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, a gathering of professional women who share a vision of empowerment, improvement and strengthening our sisterhood. We addressed what it means to be a leader in the “new world order” and discovered that the fundamentals of successful leaders today really aren’t that new at all – it’s the status quo that’s changed. Strong leaders need to focus on a tried-and-true skill – communication. Here’s why. The workforce today is made up of five generations – which is both wonderful and unprecedented. This creates a whole new set of challenges for business leaders, and at the core, the bulk of them are about communication. To start, each generation in the workforce uses a different “language” to communicate. The example I always use to explain this is a skit from Ellen DeGeneres. She depicts an older woman attempting to signal...

12 Workplace Perks Your Wallet Will Love

Many job seekers would accept a new opportunity if better benefits were offered. A job comes with more than a paycheck. It may also bring a long list of perks and benefits such as wellness plans, insurance policies and even free food. “If you think about your compensation package, 30 to 32 percent of your total compensation doesn’t come in the form of salary,” says Gerry Leonard, president of ADP Benefit Services in Alpharetta, GA. When it comes to benefits that offer the most value, talent experts say these are the ones you want. Health Insurance From a dollars-and-cents standpoint, practically no benefit is as valuable as health insurance. “Getting your health [insurance] provided by your employer is huge,” Leonard says. The Kaiser Family Foundation found the average annual cost for an employer-sponsored family health insurance plan was $18,142 in 2016. Of that, employers covered $12,865 of the cost. Health Savings Account Leonard says health savings accounts are still underutilized but provide a great value for employees. Money deposited...
