Electronic Time and Attendance: A Logical Step in Nonprofit’s Business Evolution

This article is authored by Louis Medina, outreach and advocacy manager for Community Action Partnership of Kern. Managing staff time and attendance, payroll and benefits for an 800- employee agency serving nine central California counties can be a daunting enterprise – especially if a lot of the work is done on paper. But transition­ing seamlessly to a paperless Human Capital Management system can be just as challenging – unless the right resources and technology are in place. That is what Community Action Partnership of Kern (CAPK) learned in the fall of 2015, when it successfully implemented ADP’s Workforce Now – an integrated HCM platform designed specifically for midsized businesses – under the leadership of CAPK’s Payroll and Human Resources Information Systems Manager Eric Kelley. It was a project that the agency had wanted to implement since around 2010, said Kelley, who came on board with CAPK just a little over a year ago. “Several sincere efforts at paperless time and attendance implementation were attempted,” he said. “However, such a...

You may be exploring new models for administering health benefits to your employees and looking for innovative ways to help reduce the cost of your health care plans – and one of those methods may be using a Private Exchange. Employers may gravitate to Private Exchanges for many reasons: you want to ‘outsource’ to experts the time consuming and expensive annual process of selecting and pricing benefits carriers and plans and obtain assistance with ACA regulatory compliance in an increasingly complicated environment. Or, you may want to help your employees become more value-conscious healthcare buyers. But exactly what are Private Exchanges? And how do you know what to look for when selecting one? What are the benefits of a Private Exchange and how can you determine if it would be the right approach for your business? To help you understand the role Private Exchanges can play in your overall benefits...
