Veterans: A Talent Pool That is Critical to the Sustained Growth of Our Economy

Veterans: A Talent Pool That is Critical to the Sustained Growth of Our Economy

By Tom Hiebert, Senior Director, Veterans Initiatives At ADP, we believe that the concept of employability is a critical social and business imperative. It means helping people access the skills and opportunities they need to succeed in the workforce. But this isn’t just a feel-good initiative – it addresses a real business need. As the U.S. labor market continues towards full employment, with more than 15 million jobs added in the past seven years, employers are now in a position where they have to attract and retain new sources of talent with the skills they need. As our CEO, Carlos Rodriguez, recently stated in the Business RoundtableSM 2017 Sustainability Report, “One source of great talent in this tightening labor market is our Veteran community.

To help with this, we strive...

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...

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...
