Updated Wage Garnishment Study from the ADP Research Institute® Examines New Facets of This Workforce Issue

By Julie Farraj, division vice president and general manager, Wage Garnishments and Unemployment/Employment Verification Services for ADP Added Value Services A new 2017 study by the ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) continues to flesh out the facets of wage garnishment and its impact on employers and their workers.   Based on the anonymous 2016 pay data of about 12 million U.S. workers, this new study reveals that one in 14 of those workers are carrying a wage garnishment and an estimated 12 percent of those with a garnishment have more than one type of wage garnishment. This research also introduced a new metric – the number of wage garnishments per employee, which according to the study averages 1.4 per employee.   The study showed that in 2016, approximately 7 percent of the U.S. workforce had their wages garnished. Of the four types of wage garnishment studied, the highest rate was for child support, followed by “other” general garnishments, such as student debt and consumer loans, tax levy, and bankruptcy.  ...

SiliconAngle: ADP discovers development benefits of combining virtualization with cloud ‘bursts’

SiliconAngle: ADP discovers development benefits of combining virtualization with cloud ‘bursts’

A recent article on siliconAngle.com discusses that agility means more than just speed. It also comes down to flexibility. The cloud provides that flexibility to companies by offering services on demand, and when a company needs more storage or compute, it’s there. When they don’t, those things go away. Combining virtualized infrastructure with the cloud creates an entirely new way of developing information technology products. Juan Gaviria, senior director of technical systems engineering at ADP spoke with host Stu Miniman and guest host Justin Warren of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE’s mobile livestreaming studio, during the VMworld conference in Las Vegas. They discussed how ADP uses the cloud and the company’s development environment. Gaviria explains that customers are turning to smartphones and other mobile devices, and because of this, ADP has refocused on mobile-first technologies. This kind of demand calls for new technologies. Watch the complete video interview...

6 Ways an LMS Can Boost Your Sales Team’s Performance

6 Ways an LMS Can Boost Your Sales Team’s Performance

By: Samantha Lang from Litmos by CallidusCloud Across industries, well-trained and professional salespeople are key to inspiring consumers to buy. They’re essential to guiding customers smoothly through the sales cycle and capturing the coveted close. But, given the pace of change in business today, they sometimes lack the latest know-how to get the job done. All too often, onboarding for new hires simply isn’t a thorough enough education to set people up for success. Salespeople are thrown into the job and go one of two routes; they either don’t succeed or they learn to survive on their own via a combination of resourcefulness, formal and informal training, and experiential learning.

A learning management solution (LMS) is the key to keeping sales (and all other job functions) up to speed on the latest products, services, compliance regulations, and company policies and updates. Especially for salespeople, who tend to be driven and ambitious – even a...

Inc.com Features ADP on Five Keys to Creating a Culture That Stands Apart

What’s the X Factor that sets one business apart from the others? Is it offering the right service at the right time? People who are dedicated and engaged in working toward success? Customers that advocate for your business? These are all important, yet, you could have all these things going for you and still fail. So what’s the real secret to success? I recently talked to three business leaders who shared their lessons for identifying the X factor that can set your business and culture apart. People are one of the most important factors in any business. They’re the ones making decisions that impact customers, and they’re the ones who determine whether your culture exists on paper, or in real life. Hiring the right people and managing them so they can do their best work are critical to the success of any business. But, if it’s so foundational, why do so many organizations struggle with it?
