Partnering with a more human resource

Purple Rain…“Electric word life, it means forever and that’s a mighty long time…”

As the world mourned the loss of yet another music legend – Prince – I was struck by the outpouring of tributes worldwide.  After hearing the news, I spent a flight back home from New Jersey listening to his songs and channeling my youth.  I returned with memories from “When Doves Cry” to “Purple Rain” and spent the rest of the evening educating my children on Prince’s contributions to music and pop culture.  I celebrated his legacy, and I know he will not soon be forgotten. I’m a big believer in legacy.  We have different leaders for different times; and different leaders resonate with different people.  In a corporate setting, each leader marks a spot in time with different needs based on market conditions, the organization’s health, and client and associates’ needs. In the roles I’ve held, my goal was to build on ADP’s amazing legacy and, equally important, to add to it.  When my time ends in a role, I want to be able to look back and...

Asia-Pacific HR Leaders Bring a Zeal for Excellence to First HR Tech China Conference

I’ve been proud to be a participant in the growth of ADP’s Asia-Pacific region since I first came here in 2013.  It’s been exciting to watch as our growth has mirrored the strides of other businesses that operate in this fascinating corner of the world. So when nearly 2,500 HR professionals met in the southern Chinese city of Zhuhai to attend the HR Technology Conference and Exposition, I couldn’t wait to discover what they considered the hottest topics in human capital management (HCM). This was the first time HR Tech, a fixture conference in the United States, was conducted in Asia.  And Zhuhai – a ferryboat ride from Hong Kong – seemed to be the ideal place to hold it.  Transformed into one of China’s first Special Economic Zones in 1980, today Zhuhai is known for modern icons of prosperity like golf resorts and theme parks – and, of course, a growing business community. China has been growing steadily for more than a decade, recently “slowing” to still rapid...

Are Businesses Raising Wages to Retain Workers?

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

We’re seeing an accelerated wage increase in the labor market for the first quarter of 2016, according to the ADP Workforce Vitality Report.  The freshly released report shows year-over-year wages grew substantially for job holders in the first quarter of 2016, rising from 4.1 percent in the previous quarter to the current 4.6 percent. This may be a signal that continued employment growth is leading to a smaller pool of available talent, in turn motivating employers to increase wages to retain experienced workers. This wage growth was evident in almost all industries and in all age groups among full-time workers.  Employers appear to be reacting to a tightening labor market by boosting wages to retain talent. Should you be more competitive with your employee compensation to retain talent?

Overtime Overhaul: It’s Time to Prepare Your Business for Sweeping Changes

In July 2015, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) proposed changes to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) that would substantially overhaul overtime pay rules. The proposed changes more than double the salary threshold that helps determine whether workers are eligible for time-and-a-half pay when working more than 40 hours per week. If finalized, these changes will make nearly five million workers eligible for overtime pay as early as this year, unless their salary is raised. In March 2016, the DOL submitted the proposal to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review. The OMB could approve the rule as is or ask the DOL for changes. The final rule could be issued as early as later this month; once final, employers will likely have 60 days in which to comply. For businesses, this could be the next big compliance challenge following the Affordable Care Act.  So it’s concerning that many employers are not fully prepared to navigate the new rules. According to ADP research, only 25 percent...

Navigating Compliance Challenges with a Professional Employer Organization

Small and midsized business owners today are faced with a host of employment-related regulations including, paid sick-leave laws, changing minimum wage, state and local regulations, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA). To say the HR landscape continues to become increasingly complex for this group of employers would be quite an understatement! In fact, the ADP Midsized Business Owners Study recently found that 41 percent of midsized employers rank the volume of government regulations as their top concern and 32 percent rank health care reform legislation as their top concern. This is part of the reason why the appeal of Professional Employer Organizations (PEO) has grown considerably over the last few years: Business owners are searching for experts who can help relieve the burden of managing their compliance risk. For example, Global Kids, Inc., a nonprofit educational organization for global learning and youth development, decided to partner with ADP TotalSource. Having recently doubled in size, Global Kids currently has more than 80 employees across two states and reaches over 14,000...

ADP Philippines Brings Light to the Community

ADP Philippines associates are giving back to the community by helping a local village of people impacted by a volcano eruption. Nearly 50 associates recently visited the Villa Maria Aeta Resettlement Area, a community for people displaced by the 1991 eruption of Mount Pinatubo. Villa Maria is located in Pampanga, Philippines, about 110 km (68 miles) north of the ADP office in Manila. The school in Villa Maria teaches children in grades 1-10, with a total of 82 children enrolled this school year.  It’s a small school and in need of refurbishment.  And while the school is powered by grid electricity, the rest of the village is off-grid, relying on kerosene lamps in the evenings. The ADP team went above and beyond to help the school and the larger community. Not only did they repaint the school and brighten it up, they donated solar lamps to provide sustainable light sources to the rest of the town. This outreach event was a great example of the community pillar of ADP...
