Talking to ADP clients is probably one of my favorite things to do. Our conversations always provide me with invaluable insights into their latest business challenges – down to those nagging concerns that keep them up at night.
That’s why I especially look forward to this time of year when more than 1,400 ADP clients, professionals and business partners gather at the ADP Meeting of the Minds (MOTM) conference to exchange ideas, share success stories, and be inspired by knowledgeable speakers and industry experts.
It’s during those exchanges that they tell us why it’s not easy being a global HR leader. As their roles continue to expand, they’re supporting employees across multiple geographies. To do that effectively, they need to continue building skills to manage organizations, systems and technologies that support different cultures, regulatory environments, and compliance frameworks.
Helping our clients meet these business challenges is why we’re proud to host ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016. It’s designed to offer a perfect learning and networking environment in which to confer with peers, absorb innovation and immerse attendees in human capital management best practices. And it gives us an opportunity to show them how ADP’s next-generation user experience can help their employees be more productive and more engaged.
The theme of this year’s event in Washington, D.C., is “Build Your Capital.” It will feature guest speakers Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords and Mark Kelly, founders of Americans for Responsible Solutions, as well as Joan Lunden, the popular television personality. ADP President and CEO Carlos Rodriguez and Mark Benjamin, president of ADP’s Global Enterprise Solutions business, also will share their insights.
Some additional highlights of the forum will be:
- Exclusive demonstrations to help clients make the most of their current HCM investments, as well as sneak peeks into next-generation HCM technologies from the ADP Innovation Lab.
- Nearly 200 educational sessions featuring industry experts, interactive discussion forums, client panels, roundtables and training classes on the latest HCM issues – from talent management to managing Affordable Care Act requirements.
- Opportunities to earn Continuing Education Credits from the Society for Human Resource Management® (SHRM), HR Certification Institute®, the International Association for Human Resource Information Management® (IHRIM), the American Payroll Association (APA®), and the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA®).
- An awards program in which ADP will recognize five clients for their outstanding achievements in strategic HCM, global leadership, commitment to innovation, early adoption of innovative solutions, and partnerships.
We’re looking forward to continuing the conversation – and to helping our clients transform their approach to attracting and retaining talent, leveraging social media and mobile applications, and gaining competitive advantage.
