And the Winner Is… ADP Retirement Services Earns Prestigious 2017 Eddy Award for Delivering Top-Notch Employee Education Programs

Educating employees about financial wellness is a top priority for many of today’s human resources leaders.

ADP Retirement Services is helping employers address this challenge through ongoing education programs. These initiatives offer clients tools and information that may help their employees better manage their finances and grow more confident in their financial futures.

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...

Many of the HR leaders I spoke with at this year’s event have been attending anywhere from five to 10 years now. So what draws them back every year?

ACA Remains the Law of the Land: What Does This Mean for Employers?

“Obamacare is the law of the land…. We’re going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future.” – Representative Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, March 24, 2017 Speaker of the House Paul Ryan pulled the American Health Care Act (AHCA) from consideration by the House of Representatives, which means the Affordable Care Act (ACA) was not amended and remains the law of the land for the foreseeable future. At this time, there does not appear to be a clear pathway to reviving ACA repeal and replace legislation. But what does this mean for employers? For employers, this means all ACA mandates, requirements, and potential penalties remain in effect at this time. For example, the employer “shared responsibility” mandate and related employer reporting requirements have not been amended and remain in place and enforceable by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). For more insight on the implications of this latest action and what could come next, read Vic Saliterman’s latest article on Spark, Health Care Reform: The Affordable Care...

Relief! Lessen Your Wage Garnishment Headaches with ADP’s Newly Enhanced Wage Garnishment Solution

As companies grow in size, so does their potential liability for wage garnishments. According to ADP® 2017 data, one in 14 U.S. employees has a wage garnishment and 12 percent of those have more than one type. Further, the same data shows that companies with 5,000 or more employees have the highest garnishment rate at 8.6 percent. For employers, wage garnishment — withholding wages from an employee’s earnings to satisfy a debt — means navigating complicated state and federal laws that can make compliance particularly challenging. Failure to calculate and withhold the appropriate amount of funds, submit required responses and notifications, or hold or remit payments to the proper parties can expose companies to litigation, fines and employee frustration. Now, ADP has enhanced its full-service Wage Garnishments solution to further help employers lessen their compliance burden and simplify the end-to-end process of wage garnishments on a day-to-day basis. The ADP SmartCompliance Wage Garnishment technology helps to mitigate risk, improve productivity and ease the employee experience. This outsourced solution is...

Are Employers Ready to Tackle Pay Equity?

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

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has expanded its EEO-1 form to require many employers to submit more information and provide greater transparency around their pay practices. Yet, according to ADP’s 2016 Compliance Confidence Study[1], almost half of organizations responded that they weren’t confident in their ability to comply with the EEOC rule by the 2018 deadline. So, if they’re not ready, where should employers start? Examining their payroll and HR data is key. The data collection needed to comply with the EEOC rules can help organizations uncover and analyze inequitable pay practices, which oftentimes exist without their knowledge. In our latest whitepaper on pay equity, ADP outlines a few steps employers can take when getting started with data: Get familiar with the latest EEOC compliance rules – and how reporting needs to change: Starting in March 2018, employers with at least 100 employees (or those with 50 or more employees that have a federal government contract) will be required to submit an expanded EEO-1 form including additional information...
