World Wide Technology Turns to ADP to Simplify HR Processes and Support Future Growth

World Wide Technology Turns to ADP to Simplify HR Processes and Support Future Growth

Over the past 27 years, World Wide Technology (WWT) has grown from a small product reseller into a technology solution provider with more than $9 billion in annual revenue and more than 4,500 employees operating in 10 countries. To keep up with its rapid growth, the company realized it needed a human capital management (HCM) system that was flexible and scalable. As such, it turned to ADP® and decided to implement ADP Vantage HCM® and ADP Streamline®. “Our plan is to add another 4,500 employees in the next five years,” said Ann Marr, vice president of Global Human Resources at WWT. “We knew the old systems we had in place wouldn’t be able to handle more employees and we’d end up hiring more people to do processes that could easily be automated. With ADP, we’ll be able to eliminate manual processes and dual data entry which will save time, reduce errors and increase efficiencies. Right now, we’re still using spreadsheets in some countries so we’re thrilled ADP will help...

9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

A diverse and inclusive workforce is comprised of people of different backgrounds who are valued for their contributions. This can provide employers with a competitive advantage by bringing new ideas, fresh perspectives, and an engaged workforce. For these reasons, it’s important to think about how you hire, treat, develop, promote, and provide benefits to employees and whether those practices foster inclusion or exclusion. Here are some ideas for improving diversity and inclusion at your company: #1: Start at the top. Make sure each manager, senior manager, and executive is responsible for inclusion and hold them accountable during performance evaluations.

In a new article on HRO Today by Amy Leschke-Kahle, vice president of performance acceleration for The Marcus Buckingham Company®, an ADP® company, she discusses strategies to help managers enable their employees to succeed. Leschke-Kahle says, “At work, a team can mean many things. Organizations can have a team of executives or a team of frontline workers. They can have a hierarchical team, a flatter team, or a dynamic team that brings together contractors and full-time employees from disparate groups or practices depending on the project at hand. Whether it’s in the field of hospitality, technology, or on the shop floor, teams are where work lives. But increasingly, more and more work gets done in groups outside of the organizational chart.” She goes on to explain that there’s no universal blueprint of what makes the perfect team—or even what the average team looks like. But there is an X factor in what makes it successful: the leader. And to further this concept, according to ADP Research Institute®’s study Fixing...
