Employee Development Matters! ADP Wins 2017 Skillsoft Channel Partner of the Year Innovation Award for its Focus on Training for Clients

By Kathy Ross, Senior Vice President of ADP Comprehensive Outsourcing Services Training and development can sometimes fall to the end of the list when it comes to tackling human resources (HR) priorities.

5 Ways for Employers to Put Diversity and Inclusion into Action

5 Ways for Employers to Put Diversity and Inclusion into Action

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Finding and keeping good people has never been easy, but as the labor market continues to tighten, it’s certainly not getting any easier. As we saw in the Q1 2017 ADP Workforce Vitality Report® and explained in USA Today, people can switch jobs more easily than ever, placing added pressure on employers to tune into workforce demands beyond salary and benefits. Current trends indicate that job searchers are choosing employers based on who they are as an organization and what they stand for, including diversity and inclusion efforts, corporate social responsibility, career mentorship and other dimensions that weren’t always considered fundamental to doing business.

It’s Not Clairvoyance, It’s Data Science

How predictive analytics can bolster human insight We’re in a fierce era of ever-increasing competition for great, reliable data. Around a decade ago, at the start of the Big Data boom, businesses were just beginning to devise ways to capture and record data. Today, we’re asking, “How do we make our data stronger to deliver insights that are more meaningful?” For some companies, the answer’s been to hire data scientists to help interpret the huge amount of data that companies are collecting, internally and online. In fact, according to Glassdoor®, “Data Scientist” ranked as the best job in America in 2017 for the second year in a row. The growing demand for data analysts and scientists really goes to show how more companies are relying on data to help guide their workforce decisions and optimize their biggest asset: Their people. How can you help your organization embrace Big Data to gain workforce insights? ADP’s Marc Rind, Vice President of Product Development and Chief Data Scientist shared his thoughts with...

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. Our Veterans are incredibly resilient and possess great leadership, management, and innovative problem-solving skills that businesses today need to succeed.” ADP has created a mission of our own, to give Veterans and their spouses the employment opportunities they deserve. To help with this, we strive...
