From the Service to Civilian Life- How ADP Commits to Veterans in the Workplace

From the Service to Civilian Life- How ADP Commits to Veterans in the Workplace

By Tom Hiebert, Senior Director of Veterans Initiatives, ADP Serving in the U.S. military is one of the biggest challenges, and honors, I’ve ever experienced. When I re-entered the civilian workforce, and civilian life, after 28 years of Army service, I knew that the skills I developed would serve me well in the next step of my career, but I didn’t quite know how. At ADP, we believe we have a responsibility to bridge this gap for Veterans, and I’m proud to be a part of the team that designed our Veteran hiring program to do so. At the same time, I know that building – and actually putting into practice – a program like this is not easy. So in addition to being proud of our Veterans Initiatives program, I want ADP to be a resource for other companies attempting to do the same. Here’s how we at ADP formed and focused our program. Make a formal commitment Working with ADP’s leadership team, we set a goal for...

Predictive Analytics Can Help Keep Your Most Valuable Employees from Quitting

In this tight labor market, talent retention is a top priority for businesses of all sizes. For any business to gain and maintain a competitive edge, one of the main objectives of HR leaders and business owners has to be not only recruiting the best talent but retaining it as well. So wouldn’t it be great if you had insight into which of your top talent is thinking of leaving so you could take preemptive action? With ADP’snew Turnover Probability solution, powered by the ADP® DataCloud, companies can more accurately identify the likelihood of future voluntary turnover. By helping to identify those employees most at risk of leaving, the model helps eliminate the guesswork from identifying likely hotspots of attrition within an organization, and mitigates the business risk of losing valued employees in key jobs, departments and locations. To gain a competitive edge, employers need to know where the highest levels of turnover occur within their organization, how their likelihood of turnover compares to other companies in their industry,...

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Jobs and careers are a big part of our lives, but are not the only things that matter. Life changes, like the birth or adoption of a child, brings joy and at the same time, tremendous complexity to our life. It’s even more challenging when you’re a single parent.Although my daughter is now in college, I struggled with balancing work and family initially.Having a boss that gave me the flexibility to go to doctors’ appointments and drop her off at school allowed me to be less stressed and more productive – something that benefitted me and my company.The reality is that while my job hadn’t changed when I returned from maternity leave, my life had. At ADP, we recognize this challenge — it’s another way we live our brand of “a more human resource,” and we also value what working mothers and their families can teach us. Our approach starts with listening to the working mothers in our associate base, having policies and benefits that address those needs, and...

Beyond Big Data – Sometimes You Need to Sweat the Small Stuff

Beyond Big Data – Sometimes You Need to Sweat the Small Stuff

While the HR industry’s all abuzz about Big Data and figuring out how to wrangle it to glean insights to better inform workforce decisions, HR leaders shouldn’t overlook the value of the smaller data that’s right in front of them. Small data’s the separate, independent data sets that make up Big Data. It provides the why behind what the Big Data shows. It’s the individual jigsaw pieces that make up the larger puzzle. Think about the Word document containing an individual’s performance review or the Excel spreadsheet of competitive pricing analysis. Both of these work products contain invaluable data and takeaways that, when centrally aggregated and analyzed, can provide actionable business insights. To read more about the value of small data and how to use it derive insights and plan strategies to tackle specific business challenges, check out this article by ADP’s David Turetsky, Vice President and Chief Product Owner, ADP DataCloud in AllBusiness.com.
