Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems Turns to ADP for Open Enrollment and ACA Compliance Help

The main mission of Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, or SEWS, is to deliver innovative electrical distribution systems to the automotive industry. As an organization that prides itself on developing new technologies and understanding efficient design principles, the company realized it needed to automate its benefits administration process, and do away with paper forms. With 1,700 employees in the United States, Corporate Compensation and Benefits Administrator, Rhonda S. Gearlds was manually entering benefits information for hundreds of employees. To save time and reduce data entry errors, SEWS turned to ADP for help. “Benefits is often one of the most confusing choices employees have to make, so I was often inundated with employee questions during open enrollment,” said Gearlds. “Now with ADP, employees can go online and can see what they’re enrolled in, which family members are covered, and which elections they need to make. Before, employees were always asking questions such as ‘Will my flexible spending account roll over?’ Now, the system alerts them that an election decision needs to...

More Brokers Consider Partnering with PEOs

As trusted advisors on “all things HCM,” the best benefits brokers are having proactive conversations with their clients and prospects about business strategies to manage their needs around talent, compensation and benefits, and risk and compliance — and that includes professional employer organziations (PEOs). There’s been a big shift recently in brokers’ willingness to partner with PEOs, driven mainly by two factors: Companies are looking to their brokers to support the entire human capital experience, especially around talent, and it’s difficult for brokers to build this support model internally. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has driven more small and midsized businesses to look at PEOs as a good option to help manage health care costs and compliance In an article titled, “Brokers and professional employer organizations: a perfect pairing,” Courtney Simpkiss, ADP Vice President of Broker Channel Strategy shares her insights on this growing trends.

Inclusion Goes Beyond the Numbers: ADP Receives Perfect Score on Human Rights Campaign 2017 Equality Index

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Talking openly about diversity is important to creating an inclusive work environment. However, it holds little value if an organization doesn’t implement policies to put that dialogue into action. I’m proud to say that over the past several years, we have demonstrated our commitment to “walking the talk,” by creating workplace policies and a welcoming environment that enable LGBTQ employees to grow personally and professionally at ADP. Sponsoring business resource groups like ADP Pride serves to engage our LGBTQ employees and their allies in implementing inclusive practices like a voluntary self-identification program and awareness training. ADP Pride has also been instrumental in ensuring we have market-competitive benefits that attracts and retains top LGBTQ talent. For these reasons, ADP has once again received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index — an honor we’ve received for the eighth consecutive year. The Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking standard on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees....

Revisions to EEO-1 Reporting: The Impact to Employers

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued major revisions to EEO-1 reporting that require the addition of employee pay data, which must be broken out by race, gender, and ethnicity – with significant implications for employers. From an administrative perspective, the new EEO-1 report requires the addition of Form W-2 gross wages from the payroll system, as well as work hours for employees. From a strategic and compliance perspective, EEO-1 mandated pay data may raise the awareness and visibility of potential payequity issues for an employer. In light of the new rule, some employers may wish to review their current hiring, job evaluation, and pay practices to ensure that they are compliant and defensible.

ADP Ranked 5th Largest Technology Employer in the NY Area

Crain’s New York Business published its annual list of the New York area’s largest “technology employers,” determined by number of local employees. ADP is ranked fifth on the list with more than 2,300 Associates in the area. We are proud to be recognized as a leading technology employer in the New York area. We believe this success is in part due to the culture we’ve created where our Associates are encouraged to think and innovate like an entrepreneurial startup. One way we’ve accomplished this is through the creation of our Innovation Labs, one of which resides in Chelsea, NY. These labs were designed to harness top tech talent and develop innovative, research-based solutions for our clients. To do that, we’ve hired a diverse Associate population including people from advertising, philosophy, anthropology, design and copywriting, backgrounds. In fact, 94% of all new hires at the ADP Innovation Lab are from different industries. We did this to help bring the “outside in” thinking that will encourage innovation and change. To learn...

Post-Election Possibilities: Changes to HR and Tax Compliance You May See

Many employers are still grappling with new compliance challenges enacted in recent years, and unresolved legislative priorities from past years may be brought to the forefront in the critical first year of the new administration. That begs the question – What should employers expect in this post-election environment? Which policy issues are likely to be considered and how might they affect employers? We reached out to ADP experts Ellen Feeney, Vice President and Counsel – Global Compliance, and Pete Isberg, Vice President, Government Relations, to ask them what they think employers can expect in the upcoming year. The Affordable Care Act was discussed at length in this past election cycle. What are some possible changes employers can expect? Ellen: While President-elect Trump campaigned on the promise that he’d repeal and replace the ACA, his stance has shifted somewhat post-election, and he seems open to the possibility of keeping some parts of the law. At this point, the ACA is tightly woven into our health care system as twenty million...
