Benchmarking’s Time to Shine: ADP Solution Named One of Top HR Products of 2016 and ‘Awesome’ New Technology

Benchmarking’s Time to Shine: ADP Solution Named One of Top HR Products of 2016 and ‘Awesome’ New Technology

Human Resource Executive® recently revealed that Benchmarking, powered by the ADP® DataCloud, has been selected as one of its “2016 Top HR Products” and “Awesome New Technologies for HR.” With a record-breaking number of nominations to consider this year, the magazine relied on a combination of staff reviews and comments from outside experts and analysts to choose the top products of the year. So what, exactly, is Benchmarking and why was it honored? Benchmarking was introduced as part of the ADP DataCloud analytics platform in October 2015. The solution gives companies the ability to compare their workforce data with up-to-date aggregated and anonymized HR and pay data from ADP’s database of more than 95,000 client organizations. By harnessing this data, HR leaders can see how their companies stack up to the competition in such areas as compensation, workforce change and workforce demographics. For example, an ADP benchmark may reveal that the average tenure for a specific job in a specific industry is two years. If your company has employees...

Predictive Analytics Can Help Keep Your Most Valuable Employees from Quitting

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.

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.

Big Data: The Key to Diversity in the Workplace

Big Data: The Key to Diversity in the Workplace

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

At ADP, we know that diversity fuels workplace innovation. We also have the data to tell the real story about workplace diversity. That’s why yesterday, we proudly sponsored Data Science and Data Architecture at ADP, an event hosted in conjunction with the NYC Women in Machine Learning and Data Science. Along with our principal data scientist Xiaojing Wang, I joined this community of women pursuing passions for data and machine learning for a provocative talk and engaging discussion. Big data is more than just numbers – it has the power to move the labor market and impact economic policy. Highlighting the ADP Research Institute’s Workforce Vitality Report, I chatted with the audience about how ADP is turning big data into actionable data. Our Workforce Vitality Report, a quarterly measure of wage growth based on the real payroll data of 24 million Americans paid by ADP, provides critical insights on labor market dynamics as well as benchmarks to measure human capital management for individual companies. The WVR sheds light on...

Why Empowering End Users Is Good For Business

Why Empowering End Users Is Good For Business

By Scott Groenendal, ADP Senior Director of Product Marketing You might think that linking user experience to the success of your business is a leap. I beg to differ. When employees are empowered with self-service HR tools and a customized user experience, they save time, are more engaged and become more productive. Think about it. What do your employees care about? They want the power to manage their careers, schedule time off, access their payroll information, and easily make benefits selections without depending on someone else to answer their HR questions. They want self-service tools that enable them to take action on their own. This is especially true for employees of multinational corporations. How frustrating would it be to have to call an HR help desk or call center where you may experience time zone, language and other cultural barriers that make it even harder to get your HR questions answered? Today’s global workforce doesn’t want to deal with an intermediary to get answers. They want interactive and visually...
