Predictive Analytics Can Help Keep Your Most Valuable Employees from Quitting

Predictive Analytics Can Help Keep Your Most Valuable Employees from Quitting

In this tight labor market, talent retention is a top priority for businesses of all sizes. For any business to gain and maintain a competitive edge, one of the main objectives of HR leaders and business owners has to be not only recruiting the best talent but retaining it as well. So wouldn’t it be great if you had insight into which of your top talent is thinking of leaving so you could take preemptive action? With ADP’snew Turnover Probability solution, powered by the ADP® DataCloud, companies can more accurately identify the likelihood of future voluntary turnover. By helping to identify those employees most at risk of leaving, the model helps eliminate the guesswork from identifying likely hotspots of attrition within an organization, and mitigates the business risk of losing valued employees in key jobs, departments and locations. To gain a competitive edge, employers need to know where the highest levels of turnover occur within their organization, how their likelihood of turnover compares to other companies in their industry,...

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Jobs and careers are a big part of our lives, but are not the only things that matter. Life changes, like the birth or adoption of a child, brings joy and at the same time, tremendous complexity to our life. It’s even more challenging when you’re a single parent.Although my daughter is now in college, I struggled with balancing work and family initially.Having a boss that gave me the flexibility to go to doctors’ appointments and drop her off at school allowed me to be less stressed and more productive – something that benefitted me and my company.The reality is that while my job hadn’t changed when I returned from maternity leave, my life had. At ADP, we recognize this challenge — it’s another way we live our brand of “a more human resource,” and we also value what working mothers and their families can teach us. Our approach starts with listening to the working mothers in our associate base, having policies and benefits that address those needs, and...

Big Data: The Key to Diversity in the Workplace

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

At ADP, we know that diversity fuels workplace innovation. We also have the data to tell the real story about workplace diversity. That’s why yesterday, we proudly sponsored Data Science and Data Architecture at ADP, an event hosted in conjunction with the NYC Women in Machine Learning and Data Science. Along with our principal data scientist Xiaojing Wang, I joined this community of women pursuing passions for data and machine learning for a provocative talk and engaging discussion. Big data is more than just numbers – it has the power to move the labor market and impact economic policy. Highlighting the ADP Research Institute’s Workforce Vitality Report, I chatted with the audience about how ADP is turning big data into actionable data. Our Workforce Vitality Report, a quarterly measure of wage growth based on the real payroll data of 24 million Americans paid by ADP, provides critical insights on labor market dynamics as well as benchmarks to measure human capital management for individual companies. The WVR sheds light on...

Winning the War for Talent: BDG CPAs Shares their Challenge – and Their Insight

Winning the War for Talent: BDG CPAs Shares their Challenge – and Their Insight

“You feel that, when your head hits the pillow, you’re doing the best by your employees.” –Neil Della Torre, Founding Partner, BDG CPAs. The accounting profession, like many industries, is currently undergoing a “workforce revolution” where many in firm leadership are taking a close look at their culture and employee engagement techniques. Why? Because they recognize the critical need to combat an industry talent shortage driven by a steady stream of retiring Baby Boomers exiting the accounting business. To fill the void, CPA firms like Becher, Della Torre, Gitto & Company are looking to attract Millennial talent. But we are seeing that the priorities and values most important to this rapidly changing workforce have shifted substantially. Specifically, the demands of Millennial employees have moved away from high salaries to priorities such as work/life balance and benefits that are offered. “Our firm model is to recruit students that could go with a ‘Big Four’ firm. ADP TotalSource® makes our firm more competitive in the market place for staff accountants as...

According to ADP Research Institute’s® report, The Evolution of Work: The Changing Nature of the Global Workforce, one of the top 19 workplace trends in the coming years will be people choosing to “spend their time working on things that are of personal interest to them or have a broader impact on society,” and an overwhelming 81 percent of employees view that trend in a positive light. Because workers of all ages seem to value work they can be proud of, a growing number of employers are finding ways to make work more meaningful and communicate it to job candidates, increasing employee satisfaction and employee retention.
