USA Today Highlights Workforce Vitality Report Data

USA Today Highlights Workforce Vitality Report Data

In an article titled “Tight labor market giving more Americans career clout,” USA Today leverages recent ADP Research Institute data from our Workforce Vitality Report highlighting that the tightening labor market is creating an opportunity for job switchers to increase their wages. “About half a million U.S. workers left one job for another in the fourth quarter, up from 406,000 in the same period in 2015 and 365,000 two years ago, according to estimates by private payroll processor ADP. That trend largely has been reported by the Labor Department and reflects a more vibrant job market. But ADP, which, unlike Labor, can track employees as they move among jobs, also finds that more of them are shifting into new sectors, such as a marketing manager who leaves retail for finance.

Retailers: Are you Optimizing your Workforce?

In today’s hyper-competitive and complex retail business environment, employers need an edge. Having the right people, in the right place, at the right time can make or break the success of your retail location. But that’s easier said than done when you’re busy dealing with growing competition, shrinking margins and providing customers with a stellar brand experience. From inaccurate planning and missed sales opportunities to reputational damage, when your scheduling doesn’t match demand, the customer experience suffers — and so does your bottom line. Without the right data-driven management practices in place, it’s hard to sustain a loyal employee team focused relentlessly on customers. Consider what happens when you don’t align employee schedules to customer demand: Understaffing leads to long lines and unhappy customers. Ultimately, sales can suffer.

Someone Filed Your Taxes for You. But That’s Not a Good Thing…

Someone Filed Your Taxes for You. But That’s Not a Good Thing…

According to the U.S. Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) statistics, tax fraud is on a steep upward trend―and right now is the prime time for it. Here’s how it works… Wait! I Didn’t Get My Tax Return? Fraudsters steal personal information using different methods, and then file fraudulent tax returns as early as they can―before the victim files. ­­­­ Victims file their real tax return and receive a letter in the mail from the IRS saying that they’ve already filed a return. Meanwhile the fraudster has had the cash from their fraudulent tax return in hand for months, and then things in the victim’s life get complicated… They have to prove they didn’t file already, investigate how else their identity might have been used for fraud, and on top of that, they still have to file their taxes!
