Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 2

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 2

By Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, Talent Activation Volume 2 in a series of new insights from Compass Welcome back to the second installment of Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass, in which we examine the behaviors that are measured and coached by the product. But before we begin, let’s consider an open secret about assessments and surveys of all types. When we hear about a survey, most of us think about the information that is being collected. This makes it easy to overlook something else that is happening – that very important information is also being communicated. When we measure whether an employee feels sufficiently recognized at our organization, we are also communicating that sufficient recognition matters in this organization. The act of measuring a thing also validates the importance of that thing. So, when running Compass, an organization is not only supporting the exchange of valuable feedback between people. It is also setting a shared understanding of that which matters most for leadership and collaboration within...

Celebrate Pride Month with Better Tools to Drive Diversity and Inclusion

Celebrate Pride Month with Better Tools to Drive Diversity and Inclusion

By Linda Mougalian, Division Vice President, Product Marketing and Strategy Amid the tightening labor market, having a diverse and inclusive workplace isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s a business imperative. To attract and retain talent, companies need to provide comfortable, supportive, and inspiring environments where people of different ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations can thrive. Employee engagement happens when workers can be their authentic selves, build upon their strengths, and know that their employers and coworkers are invested in their career development. This is particularly relevant during Pride Month which celebrates the social and political progress made by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ) community. Still, the unfortunate reality is that many LGBTQ associates still don’t feel comfortable in the workplace. According to the 2017 Workplace Equality Fact Sheet by Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, one in four LGBT employees reported experiencing workplace discrimination in the previous five years. The unemployment rate of transgender Americans is three times higher than the national average, and more...

ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

The way work gets done has changed dramatically over the past few years and that change promises to accelerate even faster as we look ahead. This means companies’ abilities to meet the needs of employees is increasingly challenging. Organizations are faced with a diverse talent pool, which now spans five generations and is expanding across geographic borders. At the same time, the rapid pace of technology development is having spillover effects into the workforce. This is transforming how teams are structured and how work is getting done. At ADP®, we believe it’s time technology enabled the changing ways we work rather than asking the workforce to adapt to technology. Technology should transcend barriers, not create new ones. One way we are accomplishing this is through reimagining how users experience our solutions. We are focusing on shifting technology to chat-based applications and platforms that employees are already on and find simple and natural to use. A great example of this is the partnership we are announcing today with Slack to...

Fast-growing NYC Firm Looks to Chart its Future

New York City-based CANY is a tale of two companies. But when it comes to its family-oriented, close-knit workplace culture, it’s strictly single-minded. Divided into separate entities – CANY Architecture +Engineering DPC and CANY Technical Services LLC – CANY provides a full suite of building enclosure services to a range of clients. The firm primarily focuses on historical restoration and maintaining the style of an existing building. In addition, CANY also oversees new construction, to help ensure building is up to code and safe. Jennifer Pucci, Director of Human Resources at CANY, says the firm’s recent success spike has been a challenge, as CANY has swiftly moved from 20 employees to around 60 today – with plans to expand to 125-plus within the next 4-5 years. CANY implemented ADP Workforce Now®, a cloudbased HR platform for payroll, time, benefits and more at the start of 2018.
