TechTarget Features ADP Marketplace — “HCM marketplace spurs choice and eases integration of applications.”

TechTarget recently caught up with ADP client Tracy Hannuksela from Landau Associates and Don Weinstein, Chief Strategy Officer, ADP to highlight the value of ADP Marketplace, a cloud-based store featuring HR applications, for HR leaders. ADP has seen a 500% increase in visits to its HCM marketplace this year and the number of customers who are integrating apps from ADP Marketplace has increased by more than 200% in the last year, according to Don Weinstein, chief strategy officer of ADP.

CNN Money Highlights ADP Research Institute Data

CNN Money Highlights ADP Research Institute Data

CNN Money recently quoted Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and head of the ADP Research Institute, in an article titled “U.S. manufacturing job openings at 2007 levels.” Ahu discusses a shift we are seeing in the types of jobs currently available in the manufacturing industry and features data from the Q3 2016 Workforce Vitality Report. In a recent interview Ahu stated: “When we look at our data we see that proportionally more firms are paying on average higher hourly wages. This reflects the overall wage increase in manufacturing, however, it also implies more firms have high skilled, high wage jobs. For example, in 2008, 50% of firms paying more than $25 per hour on average. Today, that number increased to 70%.” With increases in automation, the manufacturing industry has a high demand for high-skill, high wage jobs. This shift also highlights a need for increased training to ensure workers have the skills to fill the openings in the sector. Think this is interesting?

Research-Driven Insights for an Engaged Workforce

ADP’s webcast – “Talent Engagement and Retention – There’s Science Behind It!” – was a big hit and now you can listen to the on-demand version. Five important findings and insights, based on research-backed data about the strategic underscoring of the importance of employee engagement in the workplace, emerged from the webcast: 1) Employee engagement is a quantifiable measure of commitment that an individual feels toward an organization. 2) Despite its importance, in many businesses employee engagement is lacking – less than 33% of U.S. employees are engaged, according to a Gallup poll.1 3) Ensuring development opportunities is critical to drive engagement. ADP’s 2016 Employee Engagement Study reveals that more than nine out of 10 engaged employees are likely to stay at their organization if they have different growth opportunities, as compared to only six out of 10 unengaged employees.2 4) Frequent praise and recognition, through formal and informal measures, from managers, peers and colleagues, are critical to drive engagement. ADP® research shows that unengaged employees are 4.5 times...
