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...

Attract and Retain Top Manufacturing Talent in 3 Key Steps

The American Cities Business Journals recently published an article by Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and co-head of the ADP Research Institute, titled “Attract and retain top manufacturing talent in 3 key steps.” The article explores a shift in talent in the manufacturing industry where the experience and skill sets of people working in the industry are changing. “The fundamental shifts taking place in manufacturing are affecting not just the way people work, but also the skills today’s workers need to have. First, increased automation demands a more highly-skilled labor force. In fact, 30 percent of the workers moving into the manufacturing industry are coming from professional services. This segment is gaining fast on the 38 percent who have traditionally entered manufacturing from trade and transportation.” Read the full article here to learn how employers can attract and retain top talent in this space!

How Do You Motivate Millennials? Not with Ping-Pong Tables! (Or at least not with ping-pong tables only…)

How Do You Motivate Millennials? Not with Ping-Pong Tables! (Or at least not with ping-pong tables only…)

By Jordan Birnbaum, Chief Behavioral Economist, ADP Millennials, to many employers, are an enigma. Even though the oldest of them are now in their 30s, they continue to be the generation without a clear definition – you might even say that the defining characteristic of millennials is in fact that they can’t be put neatly into a box. They’re meaning-makers. They’re experience-seekers. And now, they make up a higher proportion of the workforce than any other generation. This ineffability leaves businesses with a tough task: how do they make their workplace appeal to millennials? Eighty-five percent of companies know they need to do a better job at engaging millennials. Engagement matters because it means employees are satisfied and more likely to stay put, and it even correlates with better business results. A recent survey revealed that companies with high engagement are 21 percent more productive. Knowing this, the question becomes how to get young people to find motivation and meaning in their day-to-day. Specifically for millennials, market conditions are...

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...
