Leadership in the “New World Order” Starts with Communication

Leadership in the “New World Order” Starts with Communication

By Debbie Dyson, Corporate Vice President, Client Experience & Continuous Improvement “Leadership in the New World Order” is a topic we recently addressed at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, a gathering of professional women who share a vision of empowerment, improvement and strengthening our sisterhood. We addressed what it means to be a leader in the “new world order” and discovered that the fundamentals of successful leaders today really aren’t that new at all – it’s the status quo that’s changed. Strong leaders need to focus on a tried-and-true skill – communication. Here’s why. The workforce today is made up of five generations – which is both wonderful and unprecedented. This creates a whole new set of challenges for business leaders, and at the core, the bulk of them are about communication. To start, each generation in the workforce uses a different “language” to communicate. The example I always use to explain this is a skit from Ellen DeGeneres. She depicts an older woman attempting to signal...

ADP’s Roland Cloutier Shares Tips to Leverage Security to Grow the Business

Dark Reading, a publication focused on trends in cyber security, recently interviewed ADP’s Chief Security Officer Roland Cloutier. The article titled, “ADP CISO Offers Tips to Leverage Security to Grow the Business,” highlights why organizations must shift their perception of security from being just part of IT to being part of the company’s digital go-to-market strategy and sales approach. “Some of the steps Cloutier took included having senior-level practitioners placed in a group called the client security management officers (CSMOs), whose full-time job focused on quickly and accurately answering security questions raised by customers and potential clients about ADP’s protection of their data and funds.” “Why that is important is because this is not sales people answering security questionnaires, nor is it people in marketing. It’s a group of people who have access to the entire portfolio of our security program and can translate that to clients, give clients reports on our critical response center and be on the front end of sales opportunities with answers to security upfront,”...

HR Leaders Weigh-In On Top Human Capital Management Priorities and Trends

HR Leaders Weigh-In On Top Human Capital Management Priorities and Trends

By Susan Hanold, PhD., Vice President, Strategic Advisory Services A few weeks ago at the ADP Meeting of the Minds conference, more than 1,000 HR leaders gathered in San Diego to gain insights into the latest human capital management (HCM) trends. During the educational sessions I led, I had the pleasure of interacting with decision makers at some of ADP’s largest clients. They shared their feedback on topics including performance management, learning, diversity and inclusion, multi-generational workforce trends and employee engagement. During the session titled “Transform Your Learning Culture into an Engaging Learning Ecosystem”, attendees took part in an interactive exercise answering the question: “What is the top learning priority for your organization?” The responses I received provided great insight into what’s really drawing the attention of HR practitioners today. It was interesting to find that while the top priority remained the same as last year, two new items jumped to the second and third slots. In order of importance, the top priorities are: 1) Leadership Development – For...

Top 10 Articles to Read on Equal Pay Day

By Kimbra Fox, Vice President, Health Care Reform & Pay Equity Today is Equal Pay Day, a day that symbolizes how far into the year women must work to earn what men earned in the previous year.
