The Key to Diversity and Inclusion is Business Resource Groups

This month, ADP was recognized for excellence and leadership in diversity, ranking #21 on the 2016 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list. ADP has a deep commitment to sustaining and celebrating our inclusive culture and we offer a variety of programs to foster this, such as Local Engagement & Diversity Committees that give our associates the opportunity to volunteer in their communities. We also strategically partner with external organizations that enable ADP to provide associates with targeted career development opportunities. One of the keys to our strategy is Business Resource Groups (BRGs). BRGs are company-sponsored and voluntary associations of people with common interests (e.g., groups to support minorities, women, military and other interests). For example, May happens to be Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage month. Our BRG, A.S.I.A (Aspiring Success in Associates), offers inclusive ways for all associates to learn more about the various cultural norms that make up our Asian-American and Pacific Islander community. These BRGs align to broader business initiatives, such as increasing the pipeline of women...

Don’t Get Burned by Compliance Overconfidence

Keeping up with tax rules and employment laws can require additional resources and a significant financial investment for businesses. Navigating a vast sea of government regulation can be a challenge for even the most-seasoned captains of industry. Tax rules and employment laws evolve frequently, leaving many businesses in a never-ending game of catch-up, trying to manage compliance and avoid penalties. Since January 2015, Congress enacted 142 new laws, many of which impact businesses that are already dealing with compliance challenges related to the Affordable Care Act and preparing for the upcoming changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules. Keeping up with these changes can require additional resources and a significant financial investment. According to Thomson Reuters, 75 percent of compliance leaders expect that managing compliance will require more or much more attention in 2016.  Many expect to commit more resources (both in terms of time and staff) to compliance policies and procedures. For small and midsized businesses with limited resources, trying to manage the seemingly ever-changing...

New FLSA Overtime Rules Mean Employers Face Race to Comply

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) finalized sweeping changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) overtime rules extending protections to 4.2 million U.S. workers. The changes double the salary threshold for “white collar” exemptions from the current minimum of $455 per week, or $23,660 a year, to $913 per week, or $47,476 annually. The updated rules also increase the minimum salary of highly compensated employees from $100,000 per year to $134,004 per year and establish a mechanism for automatically updating the salary and compensation levels for exempt employees every three years. The final rules, which will take effect on December 1, 2016, also allow employers to use nondiscretionary bonuses and incentive payments to satisfy up to 10 percent of the new standard salary level. They do not make any changes to the duties test for executive, administrative and professional employees. Here are a few steps businesses should take now to further their compliance efforts: 1) Take Stock and Review Classifications. Employers should first ensure that they thoroughly understand...

Best Companies for Multicultural Women Balancing Work, Life and Family

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

One of the reasons I am proud to work at ADP is our unwavering focus on providing a workplace that values each individual and enables associates to reach their full potential. The diverse experiences, perspectives, ideas, and backgrounds of our associates are essential in helping ADP deliver great service to our clients and maintain a competitive edge. According to the 2015 Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 70% of mothers of children under age 18 are working or looking for work. Given that, there’s little doubt that working moms, play a critical role in advancing our economy and our own company’s growth.  Considering the impact that women, in particular working moms, have on our business, nurturing a culture of inclusion that enables ADP to leverage the collective talent of multicultural women is not only the right thing to do, but a business imperative. ADP is honored to make the 2016 list for Working Mother Best Companies for Multicultural Women. This is a great achievement made possible by the commitment of...

A Marathon to 10 Million

You may have heard the phrase, “It’s a marathon, not a sprint.” That can definitely be said of the journey organizations have had in preparing for the first year of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) annual reporting. And American writer and runner Hal Higdon said, “Motivation remains key to the marathon: the motivation to begin; the motivation to continue; the motivation never to quit,” which describes the months of intense time-sensitive work and dedication needed as we were all racing towards the IRS annual reporting deadline of March 31st. In this first year, ADP assisted over 25,000 clients, ranging in size from 50 – 50,000 employees, in managing the ACA eligibility, affordability and IRS reporting for over 16 million employees, including printing and distributing more than 10 million Forms 1095-C. The Form 1095-C provides organizations with documentation they need to demonstrate they are ACA-compliant and provides key information to their employees about their health coverage. And, as a fun fact, if you stacked the 10 million Forms 1095-C ADP...

Purple Rain…“Electric word life, it means forever and that’s a mighty long time…”

As the world mourned the loss of yet another music legend – Prince – I was struck by the outpouring of tributes worldwide.  After hearing the news, I spent a flight back home from New Jersey listening to his songs and channeling my youth.  I returned with memories from “When Doves Cry” to “Purple Rain” and spent the rest of the evening educating my children on Prince’s contributions to music and pop culture.  I celebrated his legacy, and I know he will not soon be forgotten. I’m a big believer in legacy.  We have different leaders for different times; and different leaders resonate with different people.  In a corporate setting, each leader marks a spot in time with different needs based on market conditions, the organization’s health, and client and associates’ needs. In the roles I’ve held, my goal was to build on ADP’s amazing legacy and, equally important, to add to it.  When my time ends in a role, I want to be able to look back and...

Asia-Pacific HR Leaders Bring a Zeal for Excellence to First HR Tech China Conference

I’ve been proud to be a participant in the growth of ADP’s Asia-Pacific region since I first came here in 2013.  It’s been exciting to watch as our growth has mirrored the strides of other businesses that operate in this fascinating corner of the world. So when nearly 2,500 HR professionals met in the southern Chinese city of Zhuhai to attend the HR Technology Conference and Exposition, I couldn’t wait to discover what they considered the hottest topics in human capital management (HCM). This was the first time HR Tech, a fixture conference in the United States, was conducted in Asia.  And Zhuhai – a ferryboat ride from Hong Kong – seemed to be the ideal place to hold it.  Transformed into one of China’s first Special Economic Zones in 1980, today Zhuhai is known for modern icons of prosperity like golf resorts and theme parks – and, of course, a growing business community. China has been growing steadily for more than a decade, recently “slowing” to still rapid...
