How HR Can Better Use Technology to Drive Talent Strategies

How HR Can Better Use Technology to Drive Talent Strategies

Employee Benefits News recently published an intriguing article by Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, titled “How HR Can Better Use Technology to Drive Talent Strategies.” Birnbaum says that behavioral economics (BE) is about understanding the true nature of human behavior and decision-making. Human beings are not always driven by rational self-interest. In fact, much of human behavior and decision-making is actually irrational. But irrational does not mean unpredictable, allowing behavioral economists to anticipate human reactions in order to structure more productive interactions. When BE strategies are used at work, they can help leaders anticipate what truly matters in helping employees feel more engaged, thereby better serving the organization’s mission and the employee experience. Read the full article to learn how BE is influencing the future of work and how HR leaders can utilize technology to help deploy BE...

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Kulsoom Abdullah

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Kulsoom Abdullah

By Heather Bussing – Part 4 in the ADP Women in STEM series How does a data scientist change the world? Ask a really great question, then make the case for a new answer. Kulsoom Abdullah’s family is from Pakistan, but she was born in Kansas and then moved to Florida when she was five. Growing up in small towns, Kulsoom learned to stand out early wearing hijab. Islam’s code of modesty extends to all aspects of one’s life, including attire. Hijab, the head-covering worn by Muslim women, is an outer manifestation of an inner commitment to worship God.

In the Muslim faith, it is not a women’s duty to regulate the behavior of men. Men are accountable for their own conduct, and are equally required to be modest and to handle themselves responsibly in every sphere of their...

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. Consider choosing someone outside the decision-making process to conduct the searches, give them a list of job-related criteria for which to search, and instruct them to provide you a list of all candidates who meet...
