Bloomberg’s Data for Good Exchange: Using Big Data for the Public Interest

Bloomberg’s Data for Good Exchange: Using Big Data for the Public Interest

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

In America’s dynamic, complex labor market, a clear understanding of economic data is critical to providing policymakers and business leaders with actionable insights. This theme was central to the discussion at Bloomberg’s Data for Good Exchange, an annual conference highlighting the application of data science for public good. With widely-read reports sourced from the payroll data of more than 24 million American workers, ADP was uniquely positioned to discuss how we use our data for good. We already know that big data is revolutionizing the corporate world. Here at ADP, big data allows us to provide better services to more customers, but in the public sphere and non-profit sectors, we’ve yet to fully realize the impact of big data. Sunday’s event featured a lively discussion among fellow researchers, academics, policymakers and NGOs about the role big data can play in better governance. One area in which ADP data can help to fill in these gaps is understanding the dynamics behind wage growth. It is often said that wage growth...

How Can Startups and Entrepreneurs Compete in the War for Talent? With a PEO

How Can Startups and Entrepreneurs Compete in the War for Talent? With a PEO

It’s no secret that starting and running a small business is no small feat. Business owners are often pulled in what feels like a million directions — striving to ensure the business is growing, clients are happy, and that they actually get to sleep at night (or at least some nights!). But if you ask many entrepreneurs, they will tell you the one thing they never imagined would be so hard was managing their employees (even if they only have two) and providing the HR and benefits today’s top talent requires. As the workforce continues to undergo significant generational shifts and increasing competition in the war for talent, startups – by sheer nature of their size — are faced with challenges in delivering the attractive benefits that come more easily to larger organizations. As a result, working with a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) is a popular option that many entrepreneurs are considering. ADP TotalSource®, the largest PEO in the United States with more than 400,000 worksite employees, has traditionally...

Everest Report Has ADP Beaming with Benefits Pride

Everest Report Has ADP Beaming with Benefits Pride

Benefits administration is enormously complex. A successful enrollment requires surgical precision and careful coordination of multiple sources of data from multiple systems. Organizations need to understand hundreds of intricate eligibility and enrollment rules and infinite combinations of rate structures to successfully manage the daily events that are today’s Benefits offerings. Getting it wrong creates exposure to financial and compliance risk, and now, more than ever, employee dissatisfaction. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) in particular has brought continued focus on the complexities of managing Benefits, leading many businesses to seek outside expertise. In addition, as organizations look for a competitive edge, offering a broader and more varied array of Health, Wellness, Financial and Lifestyle Benefits is emerging as away to attract and retain the best talent. The additional complexity caused by the increased number of Benefit offerings and the associated burden of connecting to multiple carriers and reconciling deductions to payroll has driven the increased interest in Benefits Administration Outsourcing (BAO). According to the Everest Group’s Anil Vijayan, the BAO...
