Most HR Execs Aren’t Ready for Open Enrollment, Says Survey

By Charlie Pane, VP, Marketing, Major Account Services Open Enrollment is a year-long process and one of the most important topics for HR leaders. Moreover, once the season is complete, the process starts all over again and they start thinking about next year’s plan. With this in mind, ADP® is excited to announce the Open Enrollment Readiness Benchmark (OERB). This monthly survey gauges the readiness of HR executives for key open enrollment milestones. It is a useful tool for both HR leaders and benefits brokers to use in the planning process. For HR leaders, it is to help them understand where they are in the process against their peers and if they are ahead or behind. For benefits brokers, the data will help them notice where the red flags are and allow them to reach out to their clients to ensure they aren’t falling behind on open enrollment preparation. Below, we explain what the OERB is, how it is put together and importantly, what the most recent survey data...

How Do You Motivate Millennials? Not with Ping-Pong Tables! (Or at least not with ping-pong tables only…)

By Jordan Birnbaum, Chief Behavioral Economist, ADP Millennials, to many employers, are an enigma. Even though the oldest of them are now in their 30s, they continue to be the generation without a clear definition – you might even say that the defining characteristic of millennials is in fact that they can’t be put neatly into a box. They’re meaning-makers. They’re experience-seekers. And now, they make up a higher proportion of the workforce than any other generation. This ineffability leaves businesses with a tough task: how do they make their workplace appeal to millennials? Eighty-five percent of companies know they need to do a better job at engaging millennials. Engagement matters because it means employees are satisfied and more likely to stay put, and it even correlates with better business results. A recent survey revealed that companies with high engagement are 21 percent more productive. Knowing this, the question becomes how to get young people to find motivation and meaning in their day-to-day. Specifically for millennials, market conditions are...

ADP’s Roland Cloutier Shares Tips to Leverage Security to Grow the Business

Dark Reading, a publication focused on trends in cyber security, recently interviewed ADP’s Chief Security Officer Roland Cloutier. The article titled, “ADP CISO Offers Tips to Leverage Security to Grow the Business,” highlights why organizations must shift their perception of security from being just part of IT to being part of the company’s digital go-to-market strategy and sales approach. “Some of the steps Cloutier took included having senior-level practitioners placed in a group called the client security management officers (CSMOs), whose full-time job focused on quickly and accurately answering security questions raised by customers and potential clients about ADP’s protection of their data and funds.” “Why that is important is because this is not sales people answering security questionnaires, nor is it people in marketing. It’s a group of people who have access to the entire portfolio of our security program and can translate that to clients, give clients reports on our critical response center and be on the front end of sales opportunities with answers to security upfront,”...

HR Leaders Weigh-In On Top Human Capital Management Priorities and Trends

By Susan Hanold, PhD., Vice President, Strategic Advisory Services A few weeks ago at the ADP Meeting of the Minds conference, more than 1,000 HR leaders gathered in San Diego to gain insights into the latest human capital management (HCM) trends. During the educational sessions I led, I had the pleasure of interacting with decision makers at some of ADP’s largest clients. They shared their feedback on topics including performance management, learning, diversity and inclusion, multi-generational workforce trends and employee engagement. During the session titled “Transform Your Learning Culture into an Engaging Learning Ecosystem”, attendees took part in an interactive exercise answering the question: “What is the top learning priority for your organization?” The responses I received provided great insight into what’s really drawing the attention of HR practitioners today. It was interesting to find that while the top priority remained the same as last year, two new items jumped to the second and third slots. In order of importance, the top priorities are: 1) Leadership Development – For...

Top 10 Articles to Read on Equal Pay Day
