Why the Candidates You Reject Are Just as Important as the Ones You Hire

Why the Candidates You Reject Are Just as Important as the Ones You Hire

By Liz Gelb-O’Connor, VP Global Employer Brand & Marketing, ADP Employer branding can be a tricky thing in today’s increasingly noisy communications market. Companies no longer have the luxury of keeping a tight grip on the public’s perception. Where businesses were once able to largely control their own reputation through public communications, in the digital age, employer brand is much more intricate and complicated. Websites like Glassdoor and Indeed have democratized information on salary, culture, and overall workplace experience. Meanwhile, social media has proliferated wider public conversation and interaction with all businesses and brands. Many companies know these things, and often, they will focus on ensuring great brand experience for clients, consumers and employees. However, one demographic can easily be forgotten: job candidates. The need to provide a successful candidate experience is three-fold. First, the ever-increasing war for talent demands companies put their best foot forward in order to secure top candidates.

ADP Solutions for Payroll, Workers’ Compensation and Employee Handbooks Hit ‘The Spot’ for Local Restaurateur

Ever since she was a teenager, Cassie Fishkin dreamed of owning a restaurant – a comfortable, informal little place where people could gather for long conversations and healthy food. She told herself it would be her “retirement” career after she’d succeeded as an attorney. She never imagined her passion to be a restaurateur would outweigh her desire to practice law. Once she’d made that life-changing decision, however, Fishkin bought into a restaurant partnership and began honing a new set of skills. She rotated through every position, learning the nuances and challenges of restaurant management. She combined her business acumen and creativity, and realized that she’d finally found her professional niche. In 2015, she also realized her dream when she opened the doors of her bistro, The Spot, in Montclair, N.J. At first catering to walk-in, take-out and delivery business, the restaurant grew to accommodate patrons who wanted to sit and linger over their meals. With this growth, as most small business owners learn, came myriad day-to-day challenges that absorbed...

Computerworld: Meet ADP’s ‘business anthropologist,’ putting human thought behind chatbots

Computerworld’s Mary Pratt recently interviewed Martha Bird, ADP’s Business Anthropologist, to learn about her unique role in helping ADP design technologies that work for people — creating conversational user interfaces and chatbots that can serve different professional audiences across different geographies and different cultures. “My role is always about thinking about the intersections of technologies and people or, put another way, about the human-machine relationships in cultural context. ADP has embraced design thinking as a guiding UX principle and approach because we know that ultimately our tools need to meet real human needs,” she said.

Growing Producer of Natural Pet Snacks, Pet ‘n Shape, Says Using ADP for Payroll, Retirement Services and Time Tracking is a Real ‘Treat’

During the past decade, the number of people pursuing a natural food lifestyle has continued to multiply. Additives, dyes, biological and technological tinkering with how food is grown, processed, packaged and sold, all are being increasingly scrutinized. Foods with labels displaying a litany of unpronounceable ingredients are falling out of favor. Not surprisingly, those shoppers who yearn for the oft-touted benefits of natural, home-grown fare are extending their standards to the foods they buy for their pets. Twelve years ago, that’s the niche Pet ‘n Shape® – a California-based producer of natural, healthy dog treats and chews – set out to fill. What began as a one-man, one-car trek to retailers, trade shows and distributors in California, Arizona, and Nevada has burgeoned into a successful brand serving online and brick and mortar retail outlets nationwide. Pet ‘n Shape offers more than 40 varieties of pet treats and chews made from natural chicken, turkey, lamb, pork and beef, satisfying one of the fastest growing categories within the pet industry.
