We’re One of the First Certified Professional Employer Organizations in the United States. How Awesome is That?

By Brian Michaud, Senior Vice President, ADP TotalSource® It’s so satisfying when hard work and diligence pay off – especially when that resolve makes us an even more valuable partner for our clients. Today, ADP TotalSource® was named by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS®) as one of the first-ever Certified Professional Employer Organizations (CPEO). We’re thrilled to be among the first PEOs to receive this important certification from the IRS because the certification gives business owners confidence that a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) like ADP TotalSource has met specific standards set by the U.S. government.

We’ll also participate in ongoing reporting and record-keeping to maintain our status as a CPEO.

It’s important to us that we provide our clients with top-notch services that adhere to the highest...

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. To find out more on how a proactive approach to...
