What Makes Your Company A Great Place to Work?

What Makes Your Company A Great Place to Work?

Talent Management Made Easy at Reading Cooperative Bank with ADP Workforce Now®

Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB), founded in 1886, is a 21st century bank with traditional values, committed to putting people over profits. And the employees and customers of the bank actually own it! Maxine Hart, chief human resources officer (CHRO) faced the challenge of acquiring new talent in their diverse socio-economic communities. “The challenge, obviously, is that the talent we bring in and the types of processes we use in some of the communities that we serve are not the same as those we use for a more traditional branch. Recruitment was a cumbersome process, which really left the HR team bogged down with the volume of candidates, many of whom were really not qualified for the role.” Then RCB discovered ADP Workforce Now®, which has completely changed the way that the bank manages recruiting, talent acquisition, payroll and benefits for their workforce.

Most employers, and their advisers, probably wish they could peek into the minds of employees to understand what workers are thinking, gain perspective on day-to-day frustrations and use that information to help make employees’ lives easier. These vital insights can inform an employer’s ability to help employees feel more empowered, do great work, feel secure and supported in their organizational roles and to build a better company culture. Taking the pulse of a workforce shouldn’t be a guessing game.
