MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect, Inc. began in the early 1990s as a business-to-business hardware reseller. Today, the Florida-based company provides a broad range of IT hardware, software, and services to private-sector companies with 2,000 or more employees throughout the United States. As the company grew, so did its need to support a larger—and geographically diverse—workforce. The current footprint of MoreDirect’s employee base covers 30 states, and the vast majority of its 350 employees work out of their homes. Prior to Grisell Martinez, Senior Human Resources and Payroll Manager, joining MoreDirect in 2004, the company used QuickBooks to do payroll and HR was the traditional paper mill of forms governed by manual processes and procedures. “We used to be a very transactional, paperwork-driven department,” she recalls. MoreDirect, Inc. solved this problem by choosing ADP Workforce Now® and its single-sign-on integrated platform solution for HR, payroll, performance and compensation management, recruiting management, and analytics.

5 Lessons Learned from the Recent Harassment Complaints

5 Lessons Learned from the Recent Harassment Complaints

Nondiscrimination laws require employers to maintain a work environment that is free from sexual and other types of harassment. Beyond compliance reasons, promoting a harassment-free workplace is the right thing to do and critical to maintaining a productive workforce. However, recent scandals in the media, academia, Hollywood, and Congress are indications that sexual harassment remains a significant problem in the workplace. In light of these improprieties, here are five key takeaways to help you assess your anti-harassment efforts: #1: A policy isn’t enough. While having a written anti-harassment policy is important (and even required in some jurisdictions), it will mean little if you don’t enforce it. If you observe or are put on notice that misconduct may have occurred, you have a duty to launch a prompt, impartial, and thorough investigation. Depending on the circumstances, consider whether an internal investigation is sufficient or if you need to have an outside third party conduct an impartial investigation. If an investigation reveals that harassment occurred, take immediate and appropriate corrective action...

AACOG Moves their Organization Forward with Help from ADP Workforce Now®

AACOG Moves their Organization Forward with Help from ADP Workforce Now®

Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), established in 1967, is a voluntary association of local governments and organizations that serves its members through planning, information and coordination activities. John Clamp, chief financial officer for AACOG, was brought into the organization in 2015 to help bring AACOG to the next level. When he joined, AACOG utilized a number of legacy systems that didn’t speak to one another and employed disjointed processes that needed to be addressed to help the organization with many of its stringent reporting requirements. From a strategic standpoint, it was imperative that AACOG unify its systems under one integrated platform for reporting purposes. AACOG decided to bring in ADP Workforce Now® as the core system, integrating payroll, benefits, time and attendance and HR on a single platform. “We’ve taken our closing process from 12 days to six days, which gives us time back to analyze what we’re doing and provide more quantitative, actionable information to our board of directors,” Clamp said. “That’s how you move an organization...

TLNT has published a byline by Marc Rind, vice president of product development and chief data scientist at ADP, titled “4 Benchmarks and What They’ll Tell You About the Business.” The article explores how benchmarking brings insights that answer questions HR and team leaders need to know, such as: Am I seeing higher turnover than similar companies? Am I offering the best benefits to keep my fresh, rockstar developers? Are people from my team absent too often? It also highlights how this is especially critical in today’s labor market, where job switching is at an all-time high and finding skilled talent is tough. The article explains that 61% of the workforce is either actively or passively seeking new opportunities, according to the ADP Research Institute’s (ADPRI) study Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect.
