HR Leaders Descend on San Diego for ADP Meeting of the Minds 2017

It’s that time of year again! More than 1,500 HR and payroll professionals from ADP’s largest clients are gathering in San Diego this week for the ADP® Meeting of the Minds 2017 conference. The four-day annual event, which kicked off yesterday, gives attendees an inside look at the latest ADP HCM technology and the opportunity to expand their human resources expertise. This year we’re offering close to 175 high-impact sessions in categories including benefits, training, global, human resources, payroll and time & labor management, talent management, and personal and professional development. Last night’s welcome reception was prime time for networking. Attendees shared feedback on everything from “lessons learned” in the day’s sessions to some of the shared HR challenges that, frankly, keep them up at night. Our big news today: ADP unveiled onstage our new Pay Equity Explorer, powered by ADP® DataCloud. With new EEO-1 reporting requirements starting in March 2018, this new solution, built on the biggest dataset in Human Capital Management, combines analytics and benchmarking to help...

ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016 Stimulates Conversation, Networking and Learning

There was no shortage of in-depth discussions, meetings with peers and colleagues, and increasing our HCM IQ at ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016 last week.  To foster those activities, we conducted nearly 200 educational sessions for more than 1,400 attendees, delivered under the theme “Build Your Capital.”  We hope those sessions also informed attendees’ efforts to make HR a strategic contributor to the success of the companies they represent. Our goal is to help HR leaders refine the processes they use to acquire, develop and retain talent, as well as show how they can improve the user experience for their employees.  Here are some additional ways we did that. For the second year, we hosted a daylong Executive Strategy Summit, where we discussed business issues, such as how leadership strategies are changing in the face of dramatic shifts in the workplace, how to infuse innovation into business models, and how to execute on business strategies and transformations.  More than 100 human resources, talent and finance C-suite executives gave...

ADP MOTM 2016: 1,400 Gather to Hear the Latest Buzz on HCM

The buzz around HCM was hummin’ this week at ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016, where attendees’ focus has intensified around further innovations on the user experience, as well as on best practices in recruitment management that more deeply integrate with social media, profiling, hiring analytics and onboarding tools.   As I said in my last post, the theme of this year’s event in the Washington, D.C., area was “Build Your Capital.”  More than 1,400 HR leaders from large enterprises gathered to see how they can improve the user experience for their employees, while refining the processes they use to acquire, develop and retain talent.  Conferees used the event to network with and learn from each other.   They also took advantage of the nearly 200 educational sessions that were conducted.  Among some popular topics of interest were benefits solutions, the innovative use of application programming interfaces (APIs), data analytics, and veteran hiring, just to mention a few.   We also built on the success of last year’s conference,...

ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016 Gives Clients the Tools to Build Knowledge, Networks and Capital

Talking to ADP clients is probably one of my favorite things to do. Our conversations always provide me with invaluable insights into their latest business challenges – down to those nagging concerns that keep them up at night. That’s why I especially look forward to this time of year when more than 1,400 ADP clients, professionals and business partners gather at the ADP Meeting of the Minds (MOTM) conference to exchange ideas, share success stories, and be inspired by knowledgeable speakers and industry experts. It’s during those exchanges that they tell us why it’s not easy being a global HR leader. As their roles continue to expand, they’re supporting employees across multiple geographies.  To do that effectively, they need to continue building skills to manage organizations, systems and technologies that support different cultures, regulatory environments, and compliance frameworks. Helping our clients meet these business challenges is why we’re proud to host ADP Meeting of the Minds 2016. It’s designed to offer a perfect learning and networking environment in which...

Integrated Human Capital Management For Enterprises – What ‘Better’ Looks Like

Integrated Human Capital Management For Enterprises – What ‘Better’ Looks Like

On a pretty regular basis, our clients tell us that one of the biggest challenges they face as HR leaders is offering more strategic value to their organizations. In fact, it’s why they come to us for integrated human captial management (HCM) solutions. Specifically, they’re looking for a cloud-based HCM solution that can help them find, develop and retain great people — an integrated platform that addresses the strategic needs of HR, as well as the compliance and risk mitigation aspects of talent, benefits, payroll, and time and labor management. But just as their HCM needs have evolved, so has their need for meaningful tools and resources to help them assess and measure the current effectiveness of their efforts, and help them define a clear path to better align their HR services with their business’s strategy. An article in the July-August issue of Harvard Business Review® titled “People Before Strategy: A New Role for the CHRO,” examined the same challenge, saying: “The chief human resources officer must become a...
