The Next Stone in the Path: My Decades-Long Journey as a Woman in Technology

The Next Stone in the Path: My Decades-Long Journey as a Woman in Technology

By Isabel Espina, VP of Enterprise Architecture, ADP and 2016 recipient of Anita Borg Institute “Woman of Vision” award “What’s it like being a woman in tech?” is a question I’m often asked. Throughout my career, the lack of women in STEM-oriented roles has always been very apparent. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women still account for only 25 percent of full-time workers in computer and mathematical occupations and 14 percent in architecture and engineering.1 When I started my career 30 years ago, this disparity was even more pronounced. I was working in operations for a bank after graduating with my degree in electrical engineering and computer science. Now, as I look back on my career and am celebrating my 20-year anniversary with ADP, I’m happy to say that there has been significant progress. Throughout the past two decades, ADP and I have evolved alongside each other as innovators. Since I was young, I gravitated towards science and math. I loved that these fields provided a problem...

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 here.

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. Shouldn’t there be a more consistent way of ensuring success? The short answer is: yes. 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...
