Don’t Walk. RUN to the Newest Small Business HR Tool

Don’t Walk. RUN to the Newest Small Business HR Tool

By Alex Quevedo, Senior Vice President for ADP Insurance Services The average day in the life of a business owner is busy. Like the head coach of a professional football team, there is a lot to manage for even the most resilient entrepreneur. Coaches deal with game planning, personnel issues, game day logistics, play calling, and travel schedules. Whether you’re managing and distributing work schedules, processing payroll, tracking inventory, establishing pricing, or devising loyalty programs and sales promotions, managing these duties can feel like preparing for the championship game against the best team in the league. ADP’s RUN Powered by ADP® (RUN) platform is designed to help small business owners save time on payroll and other human resource (HR) tasks so they can focus on what matters most, their business.

FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Overtime Rules Temporarily Blocked

FLSA Changes No Longer Effective December 1, 2016 On November 22, 2016, a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction and temporarily blocked changes to the regulations governing the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) set to go into effect on December 1, 2016. The court’s action stops the overtime rule changes from going into effect nationwide while the court decides the case. So what does this mean for you? Many employers have spent months preparing for the FLSA changes, identifying workers affected by the final regulations, determining whether to increase their salaries to comply or reclassify them as nonexempt employees, and communicating those changes to their employees.

Payroll: The Accountant’s Key to Unlocking Stronger Client Relationships

Payroll: The Accountant’s Key to Unlocking Stronger Client Relationships

By Chris Rush, Division Vice President of Strategy and Business Development for ADP’s Small Business Services Division To many clients or small business owners, payroll can seem like yet another piece of an already complicated puzzle. Recent changes to federal, state and local laws on overtime rules, minimum wage and paid sick leave have made this task even more complicated, increasing the risk of noncompliance fines for employers. As they adapt to regulatory changes and anticipate more in the future, small businesses are looking to their accountants to manage the payroll process. And that’s good news. In fact, according to a recent ADP white paper, 43 percent of accounting professionals indicate that payroll is one of the most profitable segments of their business. By adding payroll services to an existing suite of accounting options, accountants can meet the demand of clients who want to better understand their payroll and how they can streamline it. At the same time, payroll can open up new opportunities, allowing accountants to increase the...

To Review or Not to Review. That is Not the Question.

To Review or Not to Review. That is Not the Question.

By Susan Hanold, VP of Talent Management and Strategic Advisory Services, and Sam Finley, VP of Talent Management Client Services, for ADP Certainly, Shakespeare’s Hamlet was contemplating a question far more dire than performance reviews. But the black-and-white nature of his question is still an apt way to depict the current debate in many corporations about the value, frequency and validity of the process used to rate, rank and reward employees. The issue, in our view, is not black and white. It’s most definitely grey. In fact, based on dozens of conversations with ADP® clients, we’d like to suggest that the question is not whether or not to review employees. (That’s an individual decision each company must make based on its unique corporate culture.) The question is: How will your organization revise its talent management strategy to accommodate the needs of today’s multi-faceted workforce? HR leaders are keen to identify a “better,” more effective way to conduct performance reviews while preserving an ability to cultivate and retain their best...

The Clock Is Ticking… New Overtime Rules Are Almost Here

New overtime rules are about to take effect on December 1. At this point in the game, most companies understand that the salary threshold for exempt workers has more than doubled to $47,476, and they’ve decided whether to reclassify employees as nonexempt, increase salaries of impacted employees, or redistribute work and redefine people’s roles. The biggest challenge remaining: Communicating the changes to employees. In an article titled, “New Overtime Rules Are Almost Here: Don’t Overlook These 6 Key Areas,” ADP’s Sushma Tripathi shared with SHRM six key areas that may be easy to overlook.
