Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 3

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 3

By Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, Talent Activation Volume 3 in a series of new insights from Compass Welcome back to the third installment of Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass, in which we examine the leadership and collaboration behaviors that are measured and coached by the product. Before diving in, this week we’re going to consider the accuracy of feedback provided by assessments in general, and consider the implications. When we receive feedback, it’s not only about us. It’s also about the person providing it. In fact, research indicates that roughly 50% of the feedback we receive is actually about the person providing the feedback, and not about us. This is referred to as the idiosyncratic rater effect. Let’s consider an example. I, as a leader, could demonstrate identical behavior around recognition to all my employees. And yet Employee #1 could give me high scores for recognition, while Employee #2 could give me low scores for recognition. How is this possible? In this case, Employee #1 may...

Recognized Tech Leaders are Partnering with ADP® to Leverage the World’s Leading HCM Data Base

At ADP® our business is about enabling a more productive workforce – now and in the future – and core to that is technology. In order to be a leading HR solutions provider, we also had to be a leading enabler of the technology ecosystem surrounding us. A few years ago, we sought to become the platform for third-party developers who want in on the human capital management (HCM) market by launching our app store called ADP Marketplace. The cloud-based platform was the first of its kind to create an environment where developers and clients can access HCM-related open application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate various employer- and employee-based solutions. For our third-party partners, they can integrate into, and build onto, our systems, giving them access to our world leading HCM data base and the tremendous insights it provides on how the world of work is evolving and what companies need from a technology perspective to effectively meet those shifts. Today, more than 250 partners have joined us on...

Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass – Volume 2

By Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, Talent Activation Volume 2 in a series of new insights from Compass Welcome back to the second installment of Which Way Is Up? Ask Compass, in which we examine the behaviors that are measured and coached by the product. But before we begin, let’s consider an open secret about assessments and surveys of all types. When we hear about a survey, most of us think about the information that is being collected. This makes it easy to overlook something else that is happening – that very important information is also being communicated. When we measure whether an employee feels sufficiently recognized at our organization, we are also communicating that sufficient recognition matters in this organization. The act of measuring a thing also validates the importance of that thing. So, when running Compass, an organization is not only supporting the exchange of valuable feedback between people. It is also setting a shared understanding of that which matters most for leadership and collaboration within...

ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

The way work gets done has changed dramatically over the past few years and that change promises to accelerate even faster as we look ahead. This means companies’ abilities to meet the needs of employees is increasingly challenging. Organizations are faced with a diverse talent pool, which now spans five generations and is expanding across geographic borders. At the same time, the rapid pace of technology development is having spillover effects into the workforce. This is transforming how teams are structured and how work is getting done. At ADP®, we believe it’s time technology enabled the changing ways we work rather than asking the workforce to adapt to technology. Technology should transcend barriers, not create new ones. One way we are accomplishing this is through reimagining how users experience our solutions. We are focusing on shifting technology to chat-based applications and platforms that employees are already on and find simple and natural to use. A great example of this is the partnership we are announcing today with Slack to...

ADP Delivers on the Future of Pay with Wisely Pay by ADP®

ADP Delivers on the Future of Pay with Wisely Pay by ADP®

Let’s face it – today’s model of pay isn’t working for a large portion of the workforce. Some people struggle with financial stress and have difficulty paying bills on time, particularly the younger generation of workers, as well as freelancers who aren’t consistently employed by a single company. Many employers have found that paycards and digital accounts allow them to take more active interests in the financial wellbeing of their workers to help them meet these challenges and get the most out of their pay. These options have been a game-changer for many. According to a recent report commissioned by ADP®, almost half of Gen Z (47 percent) and nearly a third of Millennials (31 percent) would turn down a job if they were unable to choose their method of pay. This is why we are introducing Wisely Pay by ADP, the next step in ADP’s constant evolution to put clients and their workers at the forefront of macro trends shaping the employment landscape. Wisely Pay is the first...
