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...

ADP Blogs: Another More Human Resource

ADP Blogs: Another More Human Resource

by Andy Hilton, VP Communications, Content and Brand We spent the last year creating and building our ADP blogs, publishing new articles every day. With hundreds of posts, the blogs are becoming a great resource to learn about the problems organizations are trying to solve and the upcoming issues they want to understand. The point of our blogs is to become a reliable resource for anyone wanting to explore what is going on with business, people, technology, and work. We hope to start a bigger conversation and connect with people in ways that are more about you and less about us. Here is a little about each of ADP’s blogs. Thrive is for small to medium sized business owners. Thrive focuses on practical information and advice for managing people, maximizing profits, handling operations, marketing and sales, protecting your business, and overall business strategies.

The Client Buzz From ADP Meeting of the Minds 2017

The Client Buzz From ADP Meeting of the Minds 2017

Every year as ADP® MOTM wraps up, I wonder how we’re going to top such a great event the following year. But somehow we usually do! Many of the HR leaders I spoke with at this year’s event have been attending anywhere from five to 10 years now. So what draws them back every year? According to Susan Young, Payroll Director at Southwestern Energy®, it’s the opportunity to learn more about ADP solutions she’s using and new products, as well to develop deeper relationships with ADP team members. Showcasing product innovations at the ADP Booth staffed by 32 ADP associates “My favorite part is meeting other people attending the conference and talking about our challenges,” said Young. “It’s nice to know that you are not alone. I enjoy talking to people and learning new ways to do things.” Tara Klatt, Director of HR Systems at Apogee Enterprises, agrees that building relationships with people who are using the same software and working with similar issues is a huge benefit of...

Are Employers Ready to Tackle Pay Equity?

Are Employers Ready to Tackle Pay Equity?

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has expanded its EEO-1 form to require many employers to submit more information and provide greater transparency around their pay practices. Yet, according to ADP’s 2016 Compliance Confidence Study[1], almost half of organizations responded that they weren’t confident in their ability to comply with the EEOC rule by the 2018 deadline. So, if they’re not ready, where should employers start? Examining their payroll and HR data is key. The data collection needed to comply with the EEOC rules can help organizations uncover and analyze inequitable pay practices, which oftentimes exist without their knowledge. In our latest whitepaper on pay equity, ADP outlines a few steps employers can take when getting started with data: Get familiar with the latest EEOC compliance rules – and how reporting needs to change: Starting in March 2018, employers with at least 100 employees (or those with 50 or more employees that have a federal government contract) will be required to submit an expanded EEO-1 form including additional information...
