Global Protection 24/7

Global Protection 24/7

At ADP, we have a place that not many people know about, and even fewer have been inside. It’s behind the scenes, with restricted access and it’s on the cutting edge. ADP’s Critical Incident Response Centers (CIRC) are one of our secret weapons in stemming the global impact of cybercrime to help protect our systems, client data and funds What is the CIRC? It’s a place where fraudulent efforts to gain access to ADP systems are exposed and proactive alerts help us to stay one step ahead. Monitors replace the wallpaper on our walls so we can watch the action as it happens. It’s crucial to ADP’s security program, and supports ADP’s cyber defense operations, security monitoring and financial crimes investigations.

Bring it On! It Takes More Than a Gas Leak to Prevent HR Leaders From Exploring the Future of Work

Bring it On! It Takes More Than a Gas Leak to Prevent HR Leaders From Exploring the Future of Work

By Erin Siemens, Division Vice President and General Manager, National Account Services Human Resources (HR) leaders are a tough bunch. You wouldn’t think it to look at us, but it takes a lot to keep us from learning more about our discipline and the trends impacting the workforces we support. That’s why it was especially gratifying to participate as a panelist during the FT-ADP® Evolution of Work Forum conducted recently in Chicago. Despite a news-breaking gas leak in downtown Chicago that day, which shut down trains and delayed car traffic, a tenacious and fortunate bunch of us gathered for an intimate discussion over dinner about how businesses must evolve to attract and retain top talent, while managing performance, productivity and security. Keynote speaker Alexandra Levit ignited the evening’s conversation with her presentation about what she calls the three C’s of future work: Collaboration, customization and creativity. Levit has impressive credentials and has conducted proprietary research on the future of work, the Millennial generation, gender differences and bias, and the...

250 Applicants. One Job. Recruiting Just Got Easier.

Every day recruiters spend hours sifting through hundreds of candidates to find the elusive “perfect fit” – that precious needle in the talent haystack. The job takes tons of time and draws on expertise ranging from compensation to compliance. Well, scouting for talent just got easier, faster, more secure and more accurate now that ADP and LinkedIn® have integrated their recruiting solutions. We see how the rules of talent acquisition have changed for HR leaders. Organizations need more sophisticated and integrated tools to successfully attract the best and brightest.

Midsized Business Owners Stressed About Finding and Keeping Top Talent

Midsized Business Owners Stressed About Finding and Keeping Top Talent

  Although midsized businesses added 63,000 jobs in April, some continue to consider talent – finding it, nurturing it, and keeping it – among their biggest concerns. According to the fourth annual ADP Midsized Business Owners Study, nearly half of respondents are extremely or very concerned about the quality of the available workforce, and less than 20 percent are completely confident they have the right tools to find, grow and retain talent. The research found that: Only 15 percent of the people who responded are completely confident they have effective tools to find the best talent. Many say they lack the ability to post to multiple job boards in a single action, and lack tools to find and track passive job seekers. They also report difficulty finding internal talent for open positions. Only 16 percent of the people who responded are completely confident they have effective tools to keep and grow the best talent. Respondents cite the need for tools to help create and maintain development plans for employees,...

Heads Nodding. It was a Good Sign.

Heads Nodding. It was a Good Sign.

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

I looked around the room a few times.  I saw a lot of nodding heads. I had just presented at a recent Argyle Executive Forum on Human Capital Leadership that confirmed  two concerns that Fortune 500 organizations continue to have in common:  Employee engagement and corporate culture. More than 180 attendees found themselves nodding in unison as guest speakers shared their approaches to addressing these concerns.  For instance, a speaker from Amazon shared the “Top Ten” lessons its HR organization has learned about the “Art of the Peculiar,” which turns on its ear many of the traditional ways of evaluating employee engagement.  Another speaker, from Deloitte, shared the results of its recent human capital trends report, which identified 10 human capital management trends using a framework it calls the 4Cs for HR – capacity, capabilities, community and credibility. Other presentations featured HR leaders from News Corp., Bank of America, Glassdoor, and Praxair, to name a few.  They covered a lot of ground:  Empowering and engaging employees; building corporate culture...
