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.

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Are you required to pay employees for time off on a holiday? Are they entitled to premium pay if they work on a holiday? What happens if a payday falls on a holiday? And what are the overtime and tax implications of year-end bonuses? Below, we address these and other common questions about holiday pay and bonuses. Company-Observed Holidays: Unless obligated by contract or agreement, private employers are generally not required to provide paid holidays to non-exempt employees (those entitled to minimum wage and overtime). However, if your company closes on a holiday, exempt employees (those who meet specific salary and duties requirements) must generally still receive their full pay, as long as they work any part of the workweek. Holidays to Observe Many employers voluntarily offer various paid holidays to employees. Employers may generally choose which holidays to observe as paid holidays. While some states have laws that restrict certain types of businesses from opening on a holiday, these laws don’t require employees to be paid for this...

Why Businesspeople Should Learn a New Language

By Rosetta Stone Enterprise and Education – ADP Marketplace Partner Recently, the UK version of the Huffington Post blog published a list of eight reasons why you should learn a language. Although the list was directed at post-secondary students, some of its insights can be applied to the world of business. We’ll start with cognitive benefits. It seems as if the scientific community keeps building the case that bilinguals experience brain-strengthening benefits compared to monolingual cohorts. If you want to stay sharp throughout your career, including staving off the effects of dementia, learning a language is a great strategy. The list talks a lot about culture. The cultural competency gained through learning a language is just as valuable to a career as the language skills themselves. Understanding the people and places you are targeting is a great way to make a positive impression on clients, coworkers, and other colleagues. Then there are the practical benefits to a career. Bilingualism is one of the most sought-after skills in the marketplace....
