In the article, Wolckenhauer offers her insights to help small business owners spark engagement among employees. Having worked in human resources for more than two decades, Wolckenhauer knows the importance of an engaged workforce. She shares what employee engagement really means: “Employee engagement, to me, means an all-around commitment by employees to their work, the values of the company and its people. Engaged employees are all in and feel they are part of something bigger. They understand that the job is hard sometimes, but because they love their job and are engaged in the work, they feel connected to the company’s mission, products, and people.” In fact, according to a study from the ADP Research Institute, the work itself, work hours and flexibility are among the top reasons people stay with a company. Wolchenhauer says that knowing that, managers need to make sure employees have clearly defined goals when it comes...

9 Ways to Promote a More Diverse and Inclusive Work Environment

A diverse and inclusive workforce is comprised of people of different backgrounds who are valued for their contributions. This can provide employers with a competitive advantage by bringing new ideas, fresh perspectives, and an engaged workforce. For these reasons, it’s important to think about how you hire, treat, develop, promote, and provide benefits to employees and whether those practices foster inclusion or exclusion. Here are some ideas for improving diversity and inclusion at your company: #1: Start at the top. Make sure each manager, senior manager, and executive is responsible for inclusion and hold them accountable during performance evaluations. Discuss the issue during leadership meetings and share feedback from employees. To demonstrate the importance of diversity and inclusion within your company, consider including it in your employer branding. #2: Expand recruiting. Use a variety of sources to find potential job candidates. Understand which groups are underrepresented (e.g., people of color, employees with disabilities, etc.) in your workforce and seek out community organizations and schools to help you recruit a...

HRO Today: Making Teams Work

In a new article on HRO Today by Amy Leschke-Kahle, vice president of performance acceleration for The Marcus Buckingham Company®, an ADP® company, she discusses strategies to help managers enable their employees to succeed. Leschke-Kahle says, “At work, a team can mean many things. Organizations can have a team of executives or a team of frontline workers. They can have a hierarchical team, a flatter team, or a dynamic team that brings together contractors and full-time employees from disparate groups or practices depending on the project at hand. Whether it’s in the field of hospitality, technology, or on the shop floor, teams are where work lives. But increasingly, more and more work gets done in groups outside of the organizational chart.” She goes on to explain that there’s no universal blueprint of what makes the perfect team—or even what the average team looks like. But there is an X factor in what makes it successful: the leader. And to further this concept, according to ADP Research Institute®’s study Fixing...

The Latest on Tax Reform and Maintaining Compliance

On average, almost every U.S. employer can expect to receive at least one IRS penalty assessment for errors in employment tax administration, every year. In FY2016, the IRS issued more than 5.8 million penalty notices for employment tax, totaling over $6 billion, or roughly $1,000 per notice. Maintaining employment tax compliance can be a risky business. Businesses across the U.S. are struggling to understand how the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (P.L. 115-97) affect them. Many provisions are immediately effective, although the IRS may not issue guidance for months. With Federal tax reform becoming law and expected to spark similar legislation in more than forty states, it’s difficult enough to just keep up with the changes, let alone comply with them. And with the recent increase in IRS information reporting penalties for incorrect information – which has more than doubled1 – can you afford to make any mistakes? Helping you stay compliant is one of our highest priorities. In fact, ADP makes over 1,000 programming changes annually to...
