Partnering with a more human resource

Why should we celebrate National Payroll Week?

September 7-11 is National Payroll Week, a special occasion that every employed American should acknowledge – from teenagers starting their first job to adults who have worked decades and are still at it. The American Payroll Association annually designates National Payroll Week to coincide with the celebration of Labor Day. It is their way to honor payroll professionals who are committed to making sure that pay day arrives week after week, month after month, and helping ensure that payroll is accurate and in compliance with complex tax and withholding requirements, but often without much recognition. It is the commitment of these payroll professionals—whether they process payroll in-house or rely on a partner like ADP®—that deserves a sincere “thank you” from companies like ours and from each of the approximately 150 million total workers employed in the United States today. ADP® is again the Diamond Sponsor of National Payroll Week, and as President of our Small Business Services division, I’d like to make a special call out to the critical...

Celebrating National Payroll Week

As we return to work after celebrating Labor Day, it’s also a time to celebrate our paychecks and the people behind them. Did you know… On behalf of their companies, payroll professionals contribute, collect, report, and deposit nearly $2 trillion annually, nearly 69% of the annual revenue of the U.S. Treasury. This week, September 7-11, we celebrate National Payroll Week (NPW). Founded by the American Payroll Association, it’s NPW’s 20th anniversary. At ADP, we are enthusiastic ongoing sponsors of NPW with a goal to raise awareness for our industry, while helping America’s workers maximize income through strategic management of their paychecks, withholdings, and deductions. Our paychecks are vital to our lives. It helps us pay for our homes, food, and clothing. We often look forward to our paychecks, yet we overlook the dedicated payroll professionals behind them.

Benefits of a Private Exchange in the Affordable Care Act era

Private exchanges benefit both employers and their employees, so it’s no surprise that over the past few years, they have experienced great success under the Affordable Care Act. So far, nearly 6 million people have enrolled in health insurance through a private exchange. This number is expected to double next year, and by 2018, it’s estimated there will be 40 million Americans enrolled in coverage through a private exchange. In order to participate in this growing alternative, GoHealth has partnered with ADP to create the ADP Private Exchange. This exchange gives employers the tools to help their part-time, temporary, and contract employees who are not otherwise eligible for employer-sponsored coverage to enroll in health insurance and access tax subsidy estimates that could lower their monthly premiums. Here are just a few ways the ADP Private Exchange can benefit both employers and their employees.   Burdens lifted for employers When the Cadillac tax – an excise tax on high-cost health plans – goes into effect in 2018, it’s expected to...

Integrated Human Capital Management For Enterprises – What ‘Better’ Looks Like

On a pretty regular basis, our clients tell us that one of the biggest challenges they face as HR leaders is offering more strategic value to their organizations. In fact, it’s why they come to us for integrated human captial management (HCM) solutions. Specifically, they’re looking for a cloud-based HCM solution that can help them find, develop and retain great people — an integrated platform that addresses the strategic needs of HR, as well as the compliance and risk mitigation aspects of talent, benefits, payroll, and time and labor management. But just as their HCM needs have evolved, so has their need for meaningful tools and resources to help them assess and measure the current effectiveness of their efforts, and help them define a clear path to better align their HR services with their business’s strategy. An article in the July-August issue of Harvard Business Review® titled “People Before Strategy: A New Role for the CHRO,” examined the same challenge, saying: “The chief human resources officer must become a...

Fixing the Enterprise App

The current disparity in software design is kind of funny when you think about it — at least if you’re a fan of dark comedies. The applications we rely on for personal tasks like ordering pizza, hailing cabs, or finding local movie times are slick and intuitive. They’re continuously refined based on written and data-driven user feedback. Yet, the enterprise software supporting Fortune 500 companies and running critical control systems —the stuff company profits, jobs, and lives depend on — is often clunky, prone to crashing and runs on obsolete technologies. How did we end up here? And more importantly, how do we fix the enterprise app? It’s not surprising consumer applications are leading the way in design. Build an unfriendly consumer app, and watch the competition eat your lunch. In effect, the consumer tech world is Darwin’s Galapagos Islands, where only the fittest remain relevant. “Enterprise apps are a different beast,” says Thomas Murphy, principal application developer at ADP’s Innovation Lab. “Companies, especially larger ones, have historically purchased...
