Growing Producer of Natural Pet Snacks, Pet ‘n Shape, Says Using ADP for Payroll, Retirement Services and Time Tracking is a Real ‘Treat’

During the past decade, the number of people pursuing a natural food lifestyle has continued to multiply. Additives, dyes, biological and technological tinkering with how food is grown, processed, packaged and sold, all are being increasingly scrutinized. Foods with labels displaying a litany of unpronounceable ingredients are falling out of favor. Not surprisingly, those shoppers who yearn for the oft-touted benefits of natural, home-grown fare are extending their standards to the foods they buy for their pets. Twelve years ago, that’s the niche Pet ‘n Shape® – a California-based producer of natural, healthy dog treats and chews – set out to fill. What began as a one-man, one-car trek to retailers, trade shows and distributors in California, Arizona, and Nevada has burgeoned into a successful brand serving online and brick and mortar retail outlets nationwide.

Are Employers Ready to Tackle Pay Equity?

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

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has expanded its EEO-1 form to require many employers to submit more information and provide greater transparency around their pay practices. Yet, according to ADP’s 2016 Compliance Confidence Study[1], almost half of organizations responded that they weren’t confident in their ability to comply with the EEOC rule by the 2018 deadline. So, if they’re not ready, where should employers start? Examining their payroll and HR data is key. The data collection needed to comply with the EEOC rules can help organizations uncover and analyze inequitable pay practices, which oftentimes exist without their knowledge. In our latest whitepaper on pay equity, ADP outlines a few steps employers can take when getting started with data: Get familiar with the latest EEOC compliance rules – and how reporting needs to change: Starting in March 2018, employers with at least 100 employees (or those with 50 or more employees that have a federal government contract) will be required to submit an expanded EEO-1 form including additional information...

These electronic pay methods can reduce the cost of printing and shipping checks and help limit liabilities caused by lost or stolen checks and fraud. For payroll administrators, increasing their electronic pay adoption can also mean a huge time savings because they no longer have to chase down and reconcile lost or stolen checks. What’s the benefit for employees? According to a Visa® and ADP® study on the ALINE Card by ADP® ¹, 93 percent of payroll card holders said one of the most valuable reasons for having a payroll card was Visa acceptance for purchases and bill payment.
