MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect Transforms its HR Function with the Help of ADP Workforce Now®

MoreDirect, Inc. began in the early 1990s as a business-to-business hardware reseller. Today, the Florida-based company provides a broad range of IT hardware, software, and services to private-sector companies with 2,000 or more employees throughout the United States. As the company grew, so did its need to support a larger—and geographically diverse—workforce. The current footprint of MoreDirect’s employee base covers 30 states, and the vast majority of its 350 employees work out of their homes. Prior to Grisell Martinez, Senior Human Resources and Payroll Manager, joining MoreDirect in 2004, the company used QuickBooks to do payroll and HR was the traditional paper mill of forms governed by manual processes and procedures. “We used to be a very transactional, paperwork-driven department,” she recalls. MoreDirect, Inc. solved this problem by choosing ADP Workforce Now® and its single-sign-on integrated platform solution for HR, payroll, performance and compensation management, recruiting management, and analytics. The HR department can now focus on its key initiative—recruiting new employees. Martinez says, “We’re definitely spending more of our...

Education Affiliates Turns to ADP to Streamline Payroll, HR, Time and Attendance and Recruiting Processes

Education Affiliates Turns to ADP to Streamline Payroll, HR, Time and Attendance and Recruiting Processes

After years of rapid growth and many acquisitions, Education Affiliates realized that having disparate HR and payroll systems in each of its more than 45 locations across the United States proved to be inefficient and costly. Having decentralized payroll and HR systems, made it difficult to standardize processes and have visibility into workforce data. To solve for this, the company implemented ADP Vantage HCM®, an integrated cloud-based human capital management solution. “Having our payroll, time and attendance, HR and recruiting information all on one easy-to-navigate platform, has been a game changer,” said Lydia Chodnicki, director of Payroll at Education Affiliates. “Prior to ADP®, everything was done on paper. Our time system wasn’t connected to our various payroll systems so importing and exporting payroll information would habitually cause problems. Since we’ve gotten rid of manual processes, I now can see and pull payroll data in real-time so I’m no longer putting out fires, but rather preventing them with relative ease.” “Within the first year of partnering with ADP, we saved...

It’s Officially Holiday Season: 8 Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring Seasonal Employees

It’s Officially Holiday Season: 8 Mistakes to Avoid When Hiring Seasonal Employees

With winter approaching, employers in certain industries may need to hire temporary employees to help handle seasonal increases in demand. Even though seasonal employees are by definition short-term hires, cutting corners during the onboarding process can lead to long-term headaches. When hiring seasonal employees, avoid these top mistakes: #1: Waiting too long. Start early by assessing business needs and determining the number of seasonal workers you will need. Work with supervisors to make sure adequate staff will be in place and establish a plan for utilizing the additional help. #2: Relaxing hiring standards. The ramifications of a bad hire, whether temporary or full-time, can be significant. Prior to recruiting for an open position, write/review/update a job description for the position and establish the job-related criteria you will use to make your hiring decision. Vet each candidate carefully, with attention given to employment applications, resumes, interviews, references, and background checks, where applicable. Taking the time to look for quality workers can also benefit you in the future, since you’ll have...

ADP® Workforce Vitality Report Q3 2017 Shows Deceleration in Wage Growth

According to the ADP Workforce Vitality Report, overall wage growth increased by 1.7 percent year over year across all industries in the third quarter of 2017 and is slower than the 2.6 percent growth in wages reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). The ADP Workforce Vitality Report tracks the same set of workers over time, which provides a more insightful picture of wage growth than overall wage growth. This set of workers includes job holders, who stayed in their same job for at least one year, and those who changed jobs, referred to as job switchers. Key indicators from the report include: Job holders’ wages grew by 4.4 percent and job switchers’ wages grew slightly less by 3.3 percent year over year in the third quarter On average, job holders’ hourly wage levels were $10 more than that of job switchers.
