Engineering Consulting Firm Finds the Perfect Employee Benefit, Shopping ADP Marketplace

As consumers, surfing the net helps us to connect with what we need, what we want, and what’s important in our lives. It can also help us to buy products and services that can benefit our businesses and employees. Take the case of Tracy Hannuksela, Human Resources Director at Landau Associates, the Edmonds, Washington-based engineering consulting firm and a client of ADP Workforce Now®. “We were thinking of offering personal identification theft protection as an employee benefit for some time,” she explains. Among the problems the HR Director encountered were cost-prohibitive coverage through brokers, products that didn’t meet expectations, and offerings that simply turned out to be too good to be true. “Then one morning, I logged in to ADP Workforce Now and got a pop-up message for ADP Marketplace.

From the Service to Civilian Life- How ADP Commits to Veterans in the Workplace

By Tom Hiebert, Senior Director of Veterans Initiatives, ADP Serving in the U.S. military is one of the biggest challenges, and honors, I’ve ever experienced. When I re-entered the civilian workforce, and civilian life, after 28 years of Army service, I knew that the skills I developed would serve me well in the next step of my career, but I didn’t quite know how. At ADP, we believe we have a responsibility to bridge this gap for Veterans, and I’m proud to be a part of the team that designed our Veteran hiring program to do so. At the same time, I know that building – and actually putting into practice – a program like this is not easy. So in addition to being proud of our Veterans Initiatives program, I want ADP to be a resource for other companies attempting to do the same. Here’s how we at ADP formed and focused our program. Make a formal commitment Working with ADP’s leadership team, we set a goal for...

What It Means to Support Working Mothers

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Jobs and careers are a big part of our lives, but are not the only things that matter. Life changes, like the birth or adoption of a child, brings joy and at the same time, tremendous complexity to our life. It’s even more challenging when you’re a single parent.Although my daughter is now in college, I struggled with balancing work and family initially.Having a boss that gave me the flexibility to go to doctors’ appointments and drop her off at school allowed me to be less stressed and more productive – something that benefitted me and my company.The reality is that while my job hadn’t changed when I returned from maternity leave, my life had.

Our approach starts with listening to the working mothers in our associate base, having policies and benefits that address those needs, and...

Beyond Big Data – Sometimes You Need to Sweat the Small Stuff

While the HR industry’s all abuzz about Big Data and figuring out how to wrangle it to glean insights to better inform workforce decisions, HR leaders shouldn’t overlook the value of the smaller data that’s right in front of them. Small data’s the separate, independent data sets that make up Big Data. It provides the why behind what the Big Data shows. It’s the individual jigsaw pieces that make up the larger puzzle. Think about the Word document containing an individual’s performance review or the Excel spreadsheet of competitive pricing analysis. Both of these work products contain invaluable data and takeaways that, when centrally aggregated and analyzed, can provide actionable business insights. To read more about the value of small data and how to use it derive insights and plan strategies to tackle specific business challenges, check out this article by ADP’s David Turetsky, Vice President and Chief Product Owner, ADP DataCloud in AllBusiness.com.

Bloomberg’s Data for Good Exchange: Using Big Data for the Public Interest

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

In America’s dynamic, complex labor market, a clear understanding of economic data is critical to providing policymakers and business leaders with actionable insights. This theme was central to the discussion at Bloomberg’s Data for Good Exchange, an annual conference highlighting the application of data science for public good. With widely-read reports sourced from the payroll data of more than 24 million American workers, ADP was uniquely positioned to discuss how we use our data for good. We already know that big data is revolutionizing the corporate world. Here at ADP, big data allows us to provide better services to more customers, but in the public sphere and non-profit sectors, we’ve yet to fully realize the impact of big data. Sunday’s event featured a lively discussion among fellow researchers, academics, policymakers and NGOs about the role big data can play in better governance. One area in which ADP data can help to fill in these gaps is understanding the dynamics behind wage growth. It is often said that wage growth...
