Fast Company Features ADP Research on Strategic Workforce Planning

Fast Company Features ADP Research on Strategic Workforce Planning

In an article titled “New Research Points The Finger At Employers For The Widespread Talent Shortage,” Fast Company highlights the findings of the just released whitepaper – Strategic Drift: How HR Plans for Change. The piece quotes Dermot O’Brien and Ahu Yildirmaz and highlights that while organizations are responding to workforce challenges with short-term solutions this new report by the ADP Research Institute suggests that they are failing to get to the heart of the problem. “Many companies are experiencing a skills shortage, which we believe is caused by a number of factors, including the transition to a more transient workforce than in previous generations; a lack of training company employees to take on other tasks and transfer into new positions; and a failure to train younger staff to replace people when they retire.” Head over to Fast Company for the full story!

Two ADP Leaders Recognized for Advancing the LGBT+ Conversation

Benchmarking’s Time to Shine: ADP Solution Named One of Top HR Products of 2016 and ‘Awesome’ New Technology

Human Resource Executive® recently revealed that Benchmarking, powered by the ADP® DataCloud, has been selected as one of its “2016 Top HR Products” and “Awesome New Technologies for HR.” With a record-breaking number of nominations to consider this year, the magazine relied on a combination of staff reviews and comments from outside experts and analysts to choose the top products of the year.

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Jobs and careers are a big part of our lives, but are not the only things that matter. Life changes, like the birth or adoption of a child, brings joy and at the same time, tremendous complexity to our life. It’s even more challenging when you’re a single parent.Although my daughter is now in college, I struggled with balancing work and family initially.Having a boss that gave me the flexibility to go to doctors’ appointments and drop her off at school allowed me to be less stressed and more productive – something that benefitted me and my company.The reality is that while my job hadn’t changed when I returned from maternity leave, my life had. At ADP, we recognize this challenge — it’s another way we live our brand of “a more human resource,” and we also value what working mothers and their families can teach us. Our approach starts with listening to the working mothers in our associate base, having policies and benefits that address those needs, and...
