Transitioning: A Shared Journey of Love

Transitioning: A Shared Journey of Love

Here at ADP, we believe we can enhance hiring and retaining the top talent available to us by promoting a welcoming, affirming and inclusive culture at all levels of the company. Enjoy this inspirational story from one of our employees: By Carol Ann Murphy* “Mom, I’m really a boy.” Those were the words that my “daughter” greeted me with when “she” came home for spring break during “her” freshman year in college in 2013. At first I was stunned. Disbelief. Fear. Sadness. Grief. All these emotions hit me as the tears started to flow – running down both of our cheeks. “But who will love you?” That was my first question after the realization that my child was never a girl and I finally had an explanation for so many things that baffled me while “she” was growing up. Why “she” sobbed every time I told her she had to wear a dress to some family event or on a holiday. Why “she” never opened the dress-up trunk that...

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 3

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 3

By Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, Talent Activation Volume 3 in a series of new insights from Compass Welcome back to the third installment of Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass, in which we examine the leadership and collaboration behaviors that are measured and coached by the product. Before diving in, this week we’re going to consider the accuracy of feedback provided by assessments in general, and consider the implications. When we receive feedback, it’s not only about us. It’s also about the person providing it. In fact, research indicates that roughly 50% of the feedback we receive is actually about the person providing the feedback, and not about us. This is referred to as the idiosyncratic rater effect. Let’s consider an example. I, as a leader, could demonstrate identical behavior around recognition to all my employees. And yet Employee #1 could give me high scores for recognition, while Employee #2 could give me low scores for recognition. How is this possible? In this case, Employee #1 may...

For Employers in Puerto Rico Impacted by Last Year’s Catastrophic Hurricanes: You May Now Be Eligible to Claim a Special Tax Credit

Almost a year after Hurricanes Irma and Maria devastated Puerto Rico, an unincorporated territory of the United States, the island continues to face significant recovery challenges. However, as the government works to fully restore the electric grid, roads, and other infrastructure, more help is on the way for employers in Puerto Rico starting in early June – in the form of an Employee Retention Credit (ERC) that will be paid out as a direct-cash grant. Unfortunately, receiving the Puerto Rico ERC isn’t automatic. To claim the ERC, employers must meet certain requirements, provide a substantial amount of complex documentation, accurately calculate the amount for which you are eligible, and correctly apply for the ERC online. Navigating this process takes time and expertise that many employers may not have – but how many businesses can afford to leave money on the table? First, Some Background After successive hurricanes hit Texas, Florida, Georgia, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the U.S. Congress acted quickly to provide tax relief for impacted...

Recognized Tech Leaders are Partnering with ADP® to Leverage the World’s Leading HCM Data Base

At ADP® our business is about enabling a more productive workforce – now and in the future – and core to that is technology. In order to be a leading HR solutions provider, we also had to be a leading enabler of the technology ecosystem surrounding us.

The cloud-based platform was the first of its kind to create an environment where developers and clients can access HCM-related open application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate various employer- and employee-based solutions. For our third-party partners, they can integrate into, and build onto, our systems, giving them access to our world leading HCM data base and the tremendous insights it provides on how the world of work is evolving and what companies need from a technology perspective to effectively meet those shifts.
