ADP ReThink Global HCM Conference Reveals Insights on How to Manage a Global Workforce

ADP ReThink Global HCM Conference Reveals Insights on How to Manage a Global Workforce

For more than 10 years, we’ve hosted our annual ADP® ReThink Global HCM Conference for top-level executives from some of the world’s largest multinational organizations. This year, more than 140 clients and prospects – representing more than seven million employees around the world – joined us to learn from their peers and industry experts, to discuss global human capital management, and to see some of our latest innovations. It’s always interesting to observe that most attendees believe their people are their companies’ most important assets, despite whatever industry our attendees represent. And they are keenly interested in hearing about how other companies are managing the challenges of a global workforce. During this gathering, under the theme “Transform the Way the World Works,” we explored global perspectives on human capital management, and how a complex, ever-changing global environment influences how we manage those workforces. They acknowledged that the rapid pace of change in the world is presenting them with workforce challenges they’re not fully equipped to manage. And they really...

Electronic Time and Attendance: A Logical Step in Nonprofit’s Business Evolution

Electronic Time and Attendance: A Logical Step in Nonprofit’s Business Evolution

This article is authored by Louis Medina, outreach and advocacy manager for Community Action Partnership of Kern. Managing staff time and attendance, payroll and benefits for an 800- employee agency serving nine central California counties can be a daunting enterprise – especially if a lot of the work is done on paper. But transition­ing seamlessly to a paperless Human Capital Management system can be just as challenging – unless the right resources and technology are in place. That is what Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK) learned in the fall of 2015, when it successfully implemented ADP’s Workforce Now – an integrated HCM platform designed specifically for midsized businesses – under the leadership of CAPK’s Payroll and Human Resources Information Systems Manager Eric Kelley. It was a project that the agency had wanted to implement since around 2010, said Kelley, who came on board with CAPK just a little over a year ago. “Several sincere efforts at paperless time and attendance implementation were attempted,” he said. “However, such a...

Integrated Human Capital Management For Enterprises – What ‘Better’ Looks Like

Integrated Human Capital Management For Enterprises – What ‘Better’ Looks Like

On a pretty regular basis, our clients tell us that one of the biggest challenges they face as HR leaders is offering more strategic value to their organizations. In fact, it’s why they come to us for integrated human captial management (HCM) solutions. Specifically, they’re looking for a cloud-based HCM solution that can help them find, develop and retain great people — an integrated platform that addresses the strategic needs of HR, as well as the compliance and risk mitigation aspects of talent, benefits, payroll, and time and labor management. But just as their HCM needs have evolved, so has their need for meaningful tools and resources to help them assess and measure the current effectiveness of their efforts, and help them define a clear path to better align their HR services with their business’s strategy. An article in the July-August issue of Harvard Business Review® titled “People Before Strategy: A New Role for the CHRO,” examined the same challenge, saying: “The chief human resources officer must become a...

Fixing the Enterprise App

Fixing the Enterprise App

The current disparity in software design is kind of funny when you think about it — at least if you’re a fan of dark comedies. The applications we rely on for personal tasks like ordering pizza, hailing cabs, or finding local movie times are slick and intuitive. They’re continuously refined based on written and data-driven user feedback. Yet, the enterprise software supporting Fortune 500 companies and running critical control systems —the stuff company profits, jobs, and lives depend on — is often clunky, prone to crashing and runs on obsolete technologies. How did we end up here? And more importantly, how do we fix the enterprise app? It’s not surprising consumer applications are leading the way in design. Build an unfriendly consumer app, and watch the competition eat your lunch. In effect, the consumer tech world is Darwin’s Galapagos Islands, where only the fittest remain relevant. “Enterprise apps are a different beast,” says Thomas Murphy, principal application developer at ADP’s Innovation Lab. “Companies, especially larger ones, have historically purchased...
