Accounting Today Explores Payroll Trends

Accounting Today quoted Chris Rush, division vice president of Strategy and Business Development, Small Business Services, in an article titled “Software survey: Moving past gross to net,” which discusses trends in payroll processing, such as the potential impact of the Fair Labor Standards Act and the use by accounting firms of data analytics to differentiate themselves to their clients. “Big Data benchmarking and predictive analytics tools can help accounting firms further differentiate and grow the firm’s service offering as a strategic advisor by providing its clients with valuable insight to attract and retain top talent…It can give an accounting practice the ability to compare its employee data with current industry averages — including compensation, turnover, productivity and other workforce metrics.

Google for Jobs: Disrupting The Recruiting Market?

One of the most challenging problems in business is matching the right person to the right job, and this goes on all the time. For job seekers, the search process can be agonizing, difficult, and frightening. Unlike other searches on the internet, a job search is a very personal thing. You are looking for a position that fits your needs, a job with a company that fits your personality and lifestyle, and an employer that is physically close enough that you can commute or relocate without impacting your family and daily life. All these search “criteria” are important, and almost none of this information is embedded in the job description. Enter Google. To find out more on the potential impact of Google for jobs and the potential benefit to the entire economy, read the entire article, Google for Jobs: Disrupting The Recruiting Market?

Creating Pay Equity in the Workplace

Ellen Feeney, Vice President, Counsel, Global Compliance at ADP, examined pay equity and its importance for today’s employers in her presentation to Argyle’s CHRO membership at the 2017 Human Capital Leadership Forum in New York on May 4. In her presentation, “Creating Pay Equity in the Workplace: What’s the Impact to Employers?” Feeney discussed the benefits of pay equity and its strategic impact on employers. According to Feeney, pay equity laws vary around the globe. Regardless, organizations must comply with these laws at all times. Many pay equity laws don’t have a financial penalty associated with them. However, the damage that an organization could suffer if it fails to comply with pay equity laws may extend beyond its bottom line. Ultimately, an organization must learn about its responsibilities relative to pay equity laws. This will enable an organization to understand its pay equity compliance and reporting requirements, so it can take the necessary steps to follow these laws consistently.

Growing Producer of Natural Pet Snacks, Pet ‘n Shape, Says Using ADP for Payroll, Retirement Services and Time Tracking is a Real ‘Treat’

During the past decade, the number of people pursuing a natural food lifestyle has continued to multiply. Additives, dyes, biological and technological tinkering with how food is grown, processed, packaged and sold, all are being increasingly scrutinized.

USA Today – Workers to recruiters: Make me an offer

USA Today published an article highlighting how employers are unaware that more than half of their workforce is open to leaving for another job. The article references key findings of the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report and two new talent whitepapers the ADP Research Institute recently published– “Evolution of Work 2.0: The Me vs. We Mindset” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market.” “As the labor market tightens, employees have more power,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, co-head of ADP’s research institute. The 4.4% unemployment rate has resulted in a smaller pool of idle workers, forcing firms to bid up to lure employees from other companies. One reason businesses should be nervous: 63% of workers are open to making a switch, according to a separate national survey of 2,156 employees that ADP conducted. Seventeen percent are looking while 46% are receptive to an overture from a recruiter. Employers are a bit too complacent. Those surveyed say 49% of their employees are in the...

“Me” vs. “We”: Employers are Unaware that More Than Half of Their Employees Are Open to Leaving

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

The labor market is tightening, wages are on the rise, and while employers may have had the upper-hand in the past, a distinct shift is underway. Employees are now calling the shots. What does this mean for employers and how they attract, retain and engage talent? The ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) commissioned a new survey to find out. From the results, ADP® developed two papers, “Evolution of Work 2.0; The Me vs. We Mindset,” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market,” which found employees tend to concentrate on their work environment, look for meaning in their job, and want immediate advancement opportunities (the “me” mindset). Whereas, employers tend to focus on bigger picture areas like financial performance, reputation, and long-term career pathing (the “we” mindset). A strengthening economy opens doors According to the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report, job switching is at an all-time high with about 27 percent of U.S. workers changing jobs on an annual basis.
