It’s that time of year again!
More than 1,500 HR and payroll professionals from ADP’s largest clients are gathering in San Diego this week for the ADP® Meeting of the Minds 2017 conference.
The four-day annual event, which kicked off yesterday, gives attendees an inside look at the latest ADP HCM technology and the opportunity to expand their human resources expertise. This year we’re offering close to 175 high-impact sessions in categories including benefits, training, global, human resources, payroll and time & labor management, talent management, and personal and professional development.
Last night’s welcome reception was prime time for networking. Attendees shared feedback on everything from “lessons learned” in the day’s sessions to some of the shared HR challenges that, frankly, keep them up at night.
Our big news today: ADP unveiled onstage our new Pay Equity Explorer, powered by ADP® DataCloud. With new EEO-1 reporting requirements starting in March 2018, this new solution, built on the biggest dataset in Human Capital Management, combines analytics and benchmarking to help employers gain a better understanding of potential pay gaps and identify specific groups of employees for further analysis.
I’ll also be taking to the stage today for a chat with one of our avid users of simplified reporting and analytics, Courtney Paynter, senior director of Human Resources Information Systems and Analytics at Simmons Foods. Courtney will share her story on how her team is using analytics to deliver actionable insights and make more strategic workforce decisions at Simmons.
I’m also excited to hear from today’s keynote speaker, Janine Driver, The New York Times best-selling author of “You Say More Than You Think And You Can’t Lie To Me.” Janine, one the world’s leading experts in body language, will share visual communication signals all leaders should be aware of when communicating with employees.
Last but not least: Our Benefits Summit kicks off today, where we’ll discuss “what’s hot” in benefits, and some of what employers should know about the current direction of health care reform. Plus, we’ll hear insights on how education and communication, decision support and data analytics can help employers maximize their benefits offering.
