Everest Report Has ADP Beaming with Benefits Pride

Everest Report Has ADP Beaming with Benefits Pride

Benefits administration is enormously complex. A successful enrollment requires surgical precision and careful coordination of multiple sources of data from multiple systems. Organizations need to understand hundreds of intricate eligibility and enrollment rules and infinite combinations of rate structures to successfully manage the daily events that are today’s Benefits offerings. Getting it wrong creates exposure to financial and compliance risk, and now, more than ever, employee dissatisfaction. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) in particular has brought continued focus on the complexities of managing Benefits, leading many businesses to seek outside expertise. In addition, as organizations look for a competitive edge, offering a broader and more varied array of Health, Wellness, Financial and Lifestyle Benefits is emerging as away to attract and retain the best talent. The additional complexity caused by the increased number of Benefit offerings and the associated burden of connecting to multiple carriers and reconciling deductions to payroll has driven the increased interest in Benefits Administration Outsourcing (BAO). According to the Everest Group’s Anil Vijayan, the BAO...

Equality is Good Business

Equality is Good Business

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Would you believe in today’s day and age that it’s legal to fire employees simply because they are LGBT? That’s unfortunately the case in 28 U.S. states. As a company whose core business is to help our clients unlock the potential of their most critical asset – people – tying diversity to the business makes sense. At ADP, we’ve just wrapped up another celebratory LGBT pride month (June) and are excited to announce we’ve signed on to the Human Rights Campaign coalition of businesses committed to driving passage of the Equality Act proposed to the United States Congress. The Act is U.S. federal legislation that would provide the same basic protections to LGBT people as are provided to other protected groups under federal law. More than 60 of the largest businesses in the U.S. have joined the campaign. The Equality Act creates clear, consistent protections that prohibit discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity in employment, ensuring that LGBT employees are hired, fired, and promoted based...

Cultivating Top Talent – American workers are our greatest asset

Cultivating Top Talent – American workers are our greatest asset

Maria Black, President, ADP TotalSource Last week I had the pleasure of participating in a panel on “Cultivating Top Talent” for the SelectUSA Summit. This event — which took place in Washington, D.C. — hosted more than 2,000 global companies, economic development organizations from every corner of the United States, high-level government officials, and others working together to facilitate investment in the United States. There were many things I found quite interesting about this experience, but none more impactful than President Barack Obama’s keynote address. It was a self-proclaimed “sales pitch” about why now more than ever America continues to be the place to invest for many reasons. The top reason I took away, likely since I too consider it to be our country’s greatest asset, is American workers. Here is a brief excerpt from his speech: “If you could choose any place and time to invest your business’s precious resources, I believe you’d choose right here, right now. If you choose a place to expand your portfolio, to...
