Leadership in the “New World Order” Starts with Communication

By Debbie Dyson, Corporate Vice President, Client Experience & Continuous Improvement “Leadership in the New World Order” is a topic we recently addressed at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit, a gathering of professional women who share a vision of empowerment, improvement and strengthening our sisterhood. We addressed what it means to be a leader in the “new world order” and discovered that the fundamentals of successful leaders today really aren’t that new at all – it’s the status quo that’s changed. Strong leaders need to focus on a tried-and-true skill – communication. Here’s why. The workforce today is made up of five generations – which is both wonderful and unprecedented. This creates a whole new set of challenges for business leaders, and at the core, the bulk of them are about communication. To start, each generation in the workforce uses a different “language” to communicate. The example I always use to explain this is a skit from Ellen DeGeneres. She depicts an older woman attempting to signal...

12 Workplace Perks Your Wallet Will Love

Many job seekers would accept a new opportunity if better benefits were offered. A job comes with more than a paycheck. It may also bring a long list of perks and benefits such as wellness plans, insurance policies and even free food. “If you think about your compensation package, 30 to 32 percent of your total compensation doesn’t come in the form of salary,” says Gerry Leonard, president of ADP Benefit Services in Alpharetta, GA. When it comes to benefits that offer the most value, talent experts say these are the ones you want. Health Insurance From a dollars-and-cents standpoint, practically no benefit is as valuable as health insurance. “Getting your health [insurance] provided by your employer is huge,” Leonard says. The Kaiser Family Foundation found the average annual cost for an employer-sponsored family health insurance plan was $18,142 in 2016. Of that, employers covered $12,865 of the cost. Health Savings Account Leonard says health savings accounts are still underutilized but provide a great value for employees. Money deposited...

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,”...
