Engineering Consulting Firm Finds the Perfect Employee Benefit, Shopping ADP Marketplace

Engineering Consulting Firm Finds the Perfect Employee Benefit, Shopping ADP Marketplace

As consumers, surfing the net helps us to connect with what we need, what we want, and what’s important in our lives. It can also help us to buy products and services that can benefit our businesses and employees. Take the case of Tracy Hannuksela, Human Resources Director at Landau Associates, the Edmonds, Washington-based engineering consulting firm and a client of ADP Workforce Now®. “We were thinking of offering personal identification theft protection as an employee benefit for some time,” she explains. Among the problems the HR Director encountered were cost-prohibitive coverage through brokers, products that didn’t meet expectations, and offerings that simply turned out to be too good to be true. “Then one morning, I logged in to ADP Workforce Now and got a pop-up message for ADP Marketplace. I clicked on the ‘New Market Vendors’ banner and it didn’t take me long before I found what I was looking for.” She discovered ADP Marketplace vendor, Core ID, whose ID theft protection product on ADP Marketplace was a...

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...

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

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...

Time Off, ACA Regulations and Your Small Business Clients

Time Off, ACA Regulations and Your Small Business Clients

John Haslinger, Vice President of Strategic Advisory Services recently caught up with Taija Sparkman, Assistant Editor of CPA Practice Advisor while they were both at the Midwest Accounting Show, in Chicago, IL on August 23. They discussed how the Affordable Care Act continues to be a challenge for many business owners and how, as a trusted advisor, accountants can help them better understand this complex regulation and its IRS reporting requirements. “There is a real opportunity for accountants to be more consultative in how they approach the ACA with their clients. ACA compliance is a huge burden for businesses with less than 200 employees and they may not have the same resources as larger corporations. By differentiating in services for small businesses and knowing who the key players are in the field, accounting professionals have a real opportunity to provide value-added service to their clients,” said Haslinger.

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...
