Protecting Your Business and People When Disaster Strikes

Natural disasters, like Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria, can have devastating consequences that not only impact personal well-being and properties, but people’s businesses and work lives as well. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), almost 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors after a disaster. Whether your business is small or large, helping employees during these tough times can leave a lasting impression. Companies that do survive natural disasters often undergo critical stress tests that gauge the health of their leaves policies, employee assistance programs, benefits plans and more. While business owners’ immediate focus is often on rebuilding, reopening and maintaining customer relationships, it’s also important to ensure you retain your biggest business asset: your people. Assisting employees during stressful times, and helping to alleviate additional job-related worries, can go a long way toward nurturing the long-term trusting relationship that employees desire with their employers that keeps them happy and engaged. It’s important for business owners to consider: Unplanned absences and their impact on business...

HRE Daily features ADP’s Ahu Yildirmaz: Thinking Like an Economist

HRE Daily wrote a recent article about incorporating analytics into hiring and HR practices, featuring Ahu Yildirmaz, Co-Head of the ADP Research Institute®. According to workforce industry economists speaking at a session titled “The Real Economics of HR Technology: Using Big Data to Drive HR Decision Making” during the HR Tech Conference on October 11th, you don’t need to be a tech giant to incorporate analytics into your hiring and HR practices. In fact, employers that aren’t using analytics to improve recruiting and other aspects of people management put themselves at a distinct disadvantage. A tight labor market that is intensifying competition for workers, technological innovation, the evolution of how work gets done and changing labor demographics make it imperative to plan for the future, and analytics are the best way to do that, economists said. “CHROs have to think like economists, not just CHROs, but the entire C-suite should be using data to understand how best to allocate talent resources to optimize their workforce and increase margins,” said...
