Rio Grande Fence Co. of Nashville Recruits and Retains Talent Using ADP TotalSource

Rio Grande Fence Co. of Nashville, Tennessee, had humble beginnings. In 1958, armed with $1,500 and pure tenacity, Derek Smith’s grandfather and grandmother invested everything they had and started the company from scratch. Over the years, the company made the decision to move away from the residential market and concentrate on providing fencing to general contractors, business owners and government agencies. This decision has enabled the company to give “white-glove treatment” to a more focused clientele and to work on establishing itself as The Commercial Fence Professionals™. That tradition of service excellence doesn’t stop with Rio Grande’s customers. It extends to the company’s more than 40 employees who, through their access to ADP TotalSource®, are empowered to more easily personalize their benefits selections, plan for retirement, and monitor their payroll. And the ADP® onboarding solution helps company management find and introduce new employees to this nurturing company culture. “A company of any merit that wants its employees to give great service has to give its employees great service,” said...

SHRM Features Stuart Sackman Discussing ADP’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative

According to a new article by SHRM, “Rather than having to navigate websites, send e-mails or make phone calls—and often wait for responses—employees can use these artificial intelligence (AI) tools to get quick, voice- or text-delivered answers to questions about paid time off, benefits eligibility, retirement savings, work schedules, and even career planning or performance coaching. For organizations, these “virtual agents” can reduce labor costs, enhance customer service and free up HR staff for strategic initiatives.” ADP’s Stuart Sackman, Corporate Vice President of Global Product and Technology highlights ADP’s Artificial Intelligence Initiative by explaining, “The next generation of HCM [human capital management] solutions is moving from graphical user interfaces to conversational user interfaces. Instead of employees having to navigate online text menus and fill out forms, many functions will be voice-generated by AI.” He explains further, “The ADP virtual agent will be powered by AI that learns employees’ patterns of behavior and predicts what information or experiences will make them more productive, efficient and engaged.” To learn more about...

Business Insider has published an article titled, “The key to earning more money may be switching jobs — and this chart proves it,” which utilizes ADP Workforce Vitality Report data to highlight how job switchers often fair better than job holders when it comes to wage growth. “Employees who changed jobs earned about 1% more year-over-year than those who stayed with the same employer.

New Webinar Series: Workplace Compliance Spotlight

Compliance risks can mean potential exposure to legal penalties, fines and other loss if your organization fails to follow applicable laws and regulations.

The Quest for Workforce Insight: Become a Superhero through Workforce Analytics

We’ve all heard of Big Data, but leveraging and finding value in it is no small task. Today, technology uses Big Data to learn our patterns and make recommendations on everything from where to shop to the best route to take home. Your smart phone has learned that you and many people “like you” travel home at 5 p.m. every day so it makes recommendations on the shortest route as soon as you approach your car. Similarly, with advances in technology, organizations are getting smarter about collecting, storing and cleaning their data to help drive better informed business decisions. However, the value internal data can provide is limited unless companies also can access external data to provide context and a wider lens to help suggest what is to come. Think about it: What good is tons of internal information if business leaders can’t compare it against industry benchmarks to see how they measure up, and analyze it to identify patterns and take action? Find out in this article by...
