The Key to Hiring and Retaining the Right Talent Might Lie in Your Voluntary Benefits

The Key to Hiring and Retaining the Right Talent Might Lie in Your Voluntary Benefits

By Will Giaconia, VP Benefits The world of work is evolving, as a result of demographics, tight labor markets and the rise of the gig economy. Now more than ever, employees want more from their employers when it comes to benefits. They want their companies to understand their unique needs, and meet them in different ways. They want the financial support, but they also want peace of mind, removing out-of-work life stresses so they can focus on doing a great job. According to a leading business intelligence firm,1 seventy-two percent of employees agree that the ability to customize benefits increases loyalty. Furthermore, we also know that two thirds of millennials say their employers have already adopted flexible work arrangements to accommodate them.2 So, do you have the right mix of benefits to offer meet your employees’ needs? What are voluntary benefits and why are they important? While traditionally categorized as insurance products, voluntary benefits include a range of perks for employees, offered by employers, which can include supplemental benefits,...

Purpose in Action: How to Promote the Inclusion of Women in Leadership

Purpose in Action: How to Promote the Inclusion of Women in Leadership

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Today, women make up more than half of the national labor force. They earn almost 60 percent of all graduate degrees and 60 percent of master’s degrees.1 At S&P 500 companies, women make up 44 percent the overall workforce.2 But in the top ranks of the corporate world, it’s a different story. Women comprise only 21 percent of the board seats at those same S&P 500 companies, and only 6 percent are CEOs. In the legal field, 45 percent of associates are women but only 22 percent are partners.3 Women of color face even steeper challenges, holding only 4.7 percent of executive- or senior-level positions at S&P 500 companies.4 In 2017, after the departure of Ursula Burns as CEO of Xerox, not a single Fortune 500 company was led by an African American woman.5 These numbers might seem bleak, but when I started my career decades ago, the disparity was even greater. The good news: we are making progress! Nonetheless, we have a long way to go to achieve...

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Kulsoom Abdullah

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Kulsoom Abdullah

By Heather Bussing – Part 4 in the ADP Women in STEM series How does a data scientist change the world? Ask a really great question, then make the case for a new answer. Kulsoom Abdullah’s family is from Pakistan, but she was born in Kansas and then moved to Florida when she was five. Growing up in small towns, Kulsoom learned to stand out early wearing hijab. Islam’s code of modesty extends to all aspects of one’s life, including attire. Hijab, the head-covering worn by Muslim women, is an outer manifestation of an inner commitment to worship God. Hijab is not just a head covering and is not forced. While many people may think that hijab is worn primarily to restrain men’s illicit desires, this is another misconception. In the Muslim faith, it is not a women’s duty to regulate the behavior of men. Men are accountable for their own conduct, and are equally required to be modest and to handle themselves responsibly in every sphere of their...

Synchronizing your Employee Data Just Got Easier for Oracle HCM Users

Synchronizing your Employee Data Just Got Easier for Oracle HCM Users

By Yan Courtois, Modulus Data – an ADP Marketplace partner In today’s dynamic economy, company culture and employee engagement have never been so important. Providing your employees with easy access to their pay, retirement accounts and more, requires data integrity. HR professionals are often challenged with maintaining accurate employee data across multiple systems, often manually re-entering the same employee data from one system to the other. It can result in the loss of several days of HR productivity each month as well as manual mistakes. If you are an Oracle HCM user and want to ensure that employee data, demographics, departments and legal entities are in synchronization with your payroll solution, you must leverage data integration to make this happen. There’s good news for organizations using Oracle HCM. Pre-built “connectors” can allow you to automatically integrate with ADP Workforce Now®.
