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...

5 Lessons Learned from the Recent Harassment Complaints

Nondiscrimination laws require employers to maintain a work environment that is free from sexual and other types of harassment. Beyond compliance reasons, promoting a harassment-free workplace is the right thing to do and critical to maintaining a productive workforce. However, recent scandals in the media, academia, Hollywood, and Congress are indications that sexual harassment remains a significant problem in the workplace. In light of these improprieties, here are five key takeaways to help you assess your anti-harassment efforts: #1: A policy isn’t enough. While having a written anti-harassment policy is important (and even required in some jurisdictions), it will mean little if you don’t enforce it. If you observe or are put on notice that misconduct may have occurred, you have a duty to launch a prompt, impartial, and thorough investigation. Depending on the circumstances, consider whether an internal investigation is sufficient or if you need to have an outside third party conduct an impartial investigation. If an investigation reveals that harassment occurred, take immediate and appropriate corrective action...

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...

3 Factors for Improving Employee Engagement

The problem in talent today is that we don’t focus on engagement where engagement lives: on teams and with team leaders. We’ve been so focused on managing talent that we have overlooked how to activate talent – which starts with where work is actually happening. The ADP Research Institute study Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect reveals that the number one reason people choose to leave a midsized company is due to a poor relationship with their direct manager. Further, the Gallup report, State of the American Manager estimates that 70% of variation in team performance is due to the team leader. Let’s face it, people don’t always become managers because they want to lead others. Managing a team is frequently added to one’s responsibilities as they excel at their role and progress through their career. But people who are good at their job, aren’t always good at managing others so they need to be given the tools and education on how to better lead and engage their workforce. In...
