ADP’s Marc Rind on TLNT: 4 Benchmarks and What They’ll Tell You About the Business

ADP’s Marc Rind on TLNT: 4 Benchmarks and What They’ll Tell You About the Business

TLNT has published a byline by Marc Rind, vice president of product development and chief data scientist at ADP, titled “4 Benchmarks and What They’ll Tell You About the Business.” The article explores how benchmarking brings insights that answer questions HR and team leaders need to know, such as: Am I seeing higher turnover than similar companies? Am I offering the best benefits to keep my fresh, rockstar developers? Are people from my team absent too often? It also highlights how this is especially critical in today’s labor market, where job switching is at an all-time high and finding skilled talent is tough. The article explains that 61% of the workforce is either actively or passively seeking new opportunities, according to the ADP Research Institute’s (ADPRI) study Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect.

Four Ways Small Businesses Can Compete for Top Talent

Four Ways Small Businesses Can Compete for Top Talent

Ask any business leader today what he or she is worried about, and they will most likely discuss the challenge of attracting and retaining top talent. Nowhere is this concern greater than in the minds of small-business owners. It is even tougher when the job market tightens. October was one of the best job-creating months this year, with 235,000 private-sector jobs added. This means the pool of unemployed workers continues to shrink and current workers are being lured with big pay bumps to switch jobs. It’s causing managers — from companies big and small — to worry about how they can compete for skilled workers. This is especially challenging for small businesses. When small businesses need to fill a job, they are going up against the recruitment campaigns, salaries and benefits that larger companies can offer. However, despite the challenge of fewer candidates seeking work and the pressure to retain current employees, small businesses can have a real advantage in attracting and retaining top talent if they use their...

Dynamic Growth at Beeline: ADP Can Help

Dynamic Growth at Beeline: ADP Can Help

Beeline is a software company which offers end- to-end procurement of contingent labor in nearly 70 countries. Through a divestiture and two acquisitions over the past eight years, Beeline has grown from 170 employees to over 450 employees globally– a large-scale change with immense impact on the organization’s culture and HR structure. With its second acquisition in December 2016, Beeline’s HR staff worked to onboard acquired employees, with only three months to manage the moving parts and processes of preparing for open enrollment and providing benefits options. Accompanying these challenges was the strategic alignment of the HR department. Traci Kellner, executive vice president of Human Capital at Beeline, works hard to ensure that HR is visibly present, engaged and working with leadership to drive sustainable, organizational change. However, when the team is buried behind administrative tasks, processes, manual adjustments and more – it’s not possible to scale the way the department needs to. To maintain the innovative spirit at the heart of its business, the HR team at Beeline...

Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Job descriptions can help you identify the essential functions of the job and the qualifications needed for a role. They can also help you set clear expectations with employees, evaluate performance, make compensation decisions, identify training needs, handle requests for reasonable accommodations, and make exempt vs. non-exempt classification decisions. Here are six guidelines for developing effective job descriptions: #1: Be consistent. To help make valid comparisons between jobs, use the same format for each job description. Generally, this includes: Job details: job title, supervisor’s title, exempt vs. non-exempt classification, a brief summary of the job, and the date the job description was created or last revised. Essential functions: job duties that an employee must be able to perform with or without a reasonable accommodation. Non-essential functions: additional tasks the employee may be required to perform during the course of his or her job, but are not essential to the job. Qualifications and skills: training, education, certification(s), and years of experience needed to perform the job. Physical demands and work...

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Holiday Pay and Year-End Bonuses: What’s Required, What’s Not?

Are you required to pay employees for time off on a holiday? Are they entitled to premium pay if they work on a holiday? What happens if a payday falls on a holiday? And what are the overtime and tax implications of year-end bonuses? Below, we address these and other common questions about holiday pay and bonuses. Company-Observed Holidays: Unless obligated by contract or agreement, private employers are generally not required to provide paid holidays to non-exempt employees (those entitled to minimum wage and overtime). However, if your company closes on a holiday, exempt employees (those who meet specific salary and duties requirements) must generally still receive their full pay, as long as they work any part of the workweek. Holidays to Observe Many employers voluntarily offer various paid holidays to employees. Employers may generally choose which holidays to observe as paid holidays. While some states have laws that restrict certain types of businesses from opening on a holiday, these laws don’t require employees to be paid for this...
