8 Ways Social Media Can Land You in Hot Water

8 Ways Social Media Can Land You in Hot Water

The growing popularity of social media brings potential landmines for employers trying to navigate the hiring process and address and manage employee conduct. Here are eight social media practices that may be cause for concern: Learning about protected characteristics on social media and allowing it to influence hiring decisions. Federal, state, and local laws prohibit employers from making employment decisions based on protected characteristics, such as age, race, color, sex, religion, and disability. One of the risks of using social media during the hiring process is the potential for the search to inadvertently reveal this type of protected information. If you intend to use social media during the hiring process, make sure you are taking steps to prevent protected information from influencing decisions (intentionally or unintentionally) and base all decisions on lawful, job-related criteria.

3 Ways Man and Machines Can Work in Harmony

3 Ways Man and Machines Can Work in Harmony

By Janine Milne, Cornerstone: ADP Marketplace partner *This article originally appeared on ReWork, an online magazine sponsored by Cornerstone OnDemand featuring news and ideas on the future of work. Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and cognitive computing are slinking into every nook, cranny and call center of the workplace. But this is not a dystopian future where man is pitted against the evil machine. Instead, the future is much more likely to look like man and machine working in harmony—combining complementary strengths to transform business for the better. Yes, it would make a lousy sci-fi movie. But if done right, it will make for a great work environment. In some ways, the future is already here. From Siri and Alexa to self-driving cars, there is technology already capable of mimicking human behavior. Businesses have received the message loud and clear that it’s time to integrate with technology: The Deloitte Human Capital Trends 2017 report revealed that 38 percent of companies will fully implement robotics and automation in the next five...

Profiles In Cybersecurity: A Discussion with Roland Cloutier, Chief Security Officer, ADP

Forbes published a profile on Roland Cloutier, Chief Security Officer at ADP, in which Cloutier discussed the role of Chief Security Information Officers. He emphasized the need for them to be business leaders, first and foremost, as cybersecurity is a key component of any business’ critical success factors. An important part of the role of the chief security officer is “to understand what a business process does,” says Cloutier. With a deep understanding of how the business moves from developing a product or a service to selling, distributing and supporting it, security officers can transform their work from putting up fire walls to assessing business process risks. Cloutier also talks about the critical role automation plays in cybersecurity. He states that the only way to successfully protect an organization today is to deploy automation and advance analytics capabilities. “Automation enables security professionals to be more successful at their jobs so they can find issues before they become a problem,” observes Cloutier.

AACOG Moves their Organization Forward with Help from ADP Workforce Now®

Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG), established in 1967, is a voluntary association of local governments and organizations that serves its members through planning, information and coordination activities. John Clamp, chief financial officer for AACOG, was brought into the organization in 2015 to help bring AACOG to the next level. When he joined, AACOG utilized a number of legacy systems that didn’t speak to one another and employed disjointed processes that needed to be addressed to help the organization with many of its stringent reporting requirements. From a strategic standpoint, it was imperative that AACOG unify its systems under one integrated platform for reporting purposes. AACOG decided to bring in ADP Workforce Now® as the core system, integrating payroll, benefits, time and attendance and HR on a single platform. “We’ve taken our closing process from 12 days to six days, which gives us time back to analyze what we’re doing and provide more quantitative, actionable information to our board of directors,” Clamp said. “That’s how you move an organization...
