Happy New Year! 8 HR Resolutions for 2018

New Year’s resolutions can help bring about positive change, whether in our personal lives or at work. With 2018 approaching, here are some HR resolutions to consider—and suggestions for helping make them stick. #1: Review your hiring procedures. Review your job advertisements, recruiting practices, application forms, interview questions, and screening and selection procedures to ensure they are effective and comply with all applicable laws. Avoid questions that could reveal a candidate’s protected class, such as age, disability, national origin, and religion. Additionally, depending on your jurisdiction, you may be prohibited from asking about an applicant’s criminal history (prior to making a conditional job offer) or salary history. #2: Create/update job descriptions. Written job descriptions can help you identify essential functions and qualifications needed for a role.

3 Factors for Improving Employee Engagement

3 Factors for Improving Employee Engagement

The problem in talent today is that we don’t focus on engagement where engagement lives: on teams and with team leaders. We’ve been so focused on managing talent that we have overlooked how to activate talent – which starts with where work is actually happening. The ADP Research Institute study Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect reveals that the number one reason people choose to leave a midsized company is due to a poor relationship with their direct manager.

Let’s face it, people don’t always become managers because they want to lead others. Managing a team is frequently added to one’s responsibilities as they excel at their role and progress through their career. But people who are good at their job, aren’t always good at managing others so they need to be given the tools and education on how to better lead and engage their workforce. In...

By Heather Bussing – Part 3 in the ADP Women in STEM series Continuing our profiles of some of the many extraordinary women in STEM at ADP, we sat down with Jennifer Cambern, ADP’s Chief Product Owner and Vice President of Product Management for National Account Services. Jennifer has been a huge proponent of Pay Equity for Women and ADP’s Pay Equity Explorer. I’ve heard her speak several times about the issue, most recently at the HR Technology Conference’s Women in HR Tech sessions. Her intelligence, passion, technical expertise, and down to earth approach are always a delight to experience. Here’s a little bit more about Jennifer in her own words. How did you end up in STEM? I have always loved the Life Sciences. I even scored a perfect science score on my ACT test, which supplied funding for my first two years of University as a Botany major. The life sciences are still a source of inspiration. I’m an avid gardener and work to conserve nature through...
