Winning the War for Talent: BDG CPAs Shares their Challenge – and Their Insight

Winning the War for Talent: BDG CPAs Shares their Challenge – and Their Insight

“You feel that, when your head hits the pillow, you’re doing the best by your employees.” –Neil Della Torre, Founding Partner, BDG CPAs. The accounting profession, like many industries, is currently undergoing a “workforce revolution” where many in firm leadership are taking a close look at their culture and employee engagement techniques. Why? Because they recognize the critical need to combat an industry talent shortage driven by a steady stream of retiring Baby Boomers exiting the accounting business. To fill the void, CPA firms like Becher, Della Torre, Gitto & Company are looking to attract Millennial talent. But we are seeing that the priorities and values most important to this rapidly changing workforce have shifted substantially. Specifically, the demands of Millennial employees have moved away from high salaries to priorities such as work/life balance and benefits that are offered. “Our firm model is to recruit students that could go with a ‘Big Four’ firm. ADP TotalSource® makes our firm more competitive in the market place for staff accountants as...

ADP Awards Scholarships to Help Clients’ Employees Advance Their Careers

ADP recently awarded $125,000 in scholarships to 75 winners of its Aspire Scholarship Program, designed to help our clients’ employees continue their education and advance their careers.

Purple Rain…“Electric word life, it means forever and that’s a mighty long time…”

Purple Rain…“Electric word life, it means forever and that’s a mighty long time…”

As the world mourned the loss of yet another music legend – Prince – I was struck by the outpouring of tributes worldwide.  After hearing the news, I spent a flight back home from New Jersey listening to his songs and channeling my youth.  I returned with memories from “When Doves Cry” to “Purple Rain” and spent the rest of the evening educating my children on Prince’s contributions to music and pop culture.  I celebrated his legacy, and I know he will not soon be forgotten. I’m a big believer in legacy.  We have different leaders for different times; and different leaders resonate with different people.  In a corporate setting, each leader marks a spot in time with different needs based on market conditions, the organization’s health, and client and associates’ needs. In the roles I’ve held, my goal was to build on ADP’s amazing legacy and, equally important, to add to it.  When my time ends in a role, I want to be able to look back and...

Navigating Compliance Challenges with a Professional Employer Organization

Navigating Compliance Challenges with a Professional Employer Organization

Small and midsized business owners today are faced with a host of employment-related regulations including, paid sick-leave laws, changing minimum wage, state and local regulations, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To say the HR landscape continues to become increasingly complex for this group of employers would be quite an understatement! In fact, the ADP Midsized Business Owners Study recently found that 41 percent of midsized employers rank the volume of government regulations as their top concern and 32 percent rank health care reform legislation as their top concern. This is part of the reason why the appeal of Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) has grown considerably over the last few years: Business owners are searching for experts who can help relieve the burden of managing their compliance risk. For example, Global Kids, Inc., a nonprofit educational organization for global learning and youth development, decided to partner with ADP TotalSource. Having recently doubled in size, Global Kids currently has more than 80 employees across two states and reaches over 14,000...
