Growing Producer of Natural Pet Snacks, Pet ‘n Shape, Says Using ADP for Payroll, Retirement Services and Time Tracking is a Real ‘Treat’

During the past decade, the number of people pursuing a natural food lifestyle has continued to multiply. Additives, dyes, biological and technological tinkering with how food is grown, processed, packaged and sold, all are being increasingly scrutinized. Foods with labels displaying a litany of unpronounceable ingredients are falling out of favor. Not surprisingly, those shoppers who yearn for the oft-touted benefits of natural, home-grown fare are extending their standards to the foods they buy for their pets. Twelve years ago, that’s the niche Pet ‘n Shape® – a California-based producer of natural, healthy dog treats and chews – set out to fill. What began as a one-man, one-car trek to retailers, trade shows and distributors in California, Arizona, and Nevada has burgeoned into a successful brand serving online and brick and mortar retail outlets nationwide. Pet ‘n Shape offers more than 40 varieties of pet treats and chews made from natural chicken, turkey, lamb, pork and beef, satisfying one of the fastest growing categories within the pet industry.

USA Today – Workers to recruiters: Make me an offer

USA Today published an article highlighting how employers are unaware that more than half of their workforce is open to leaving for another job. The article references key findings of the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report and two new talent whitepapers the ADP Research Institute recently published– “Evolution of Work 2.0: The Me vs. We Mindset” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market.” “As the labor market tightens, employees have more power,” said Ahu Yildirmaz, co-head of ADP’s research institute. The 4.4% unemployment rate has resulted in a smaller pool of idle workers, forcing firms to bid up to lure employees from other companies. One reason businesses should be nervous: 63% of workers are open to making a switch, according to a separate national survey of 2,156 employees that ADP conducted. Seventeen percent are looking while 46% are receptive to an overture from a recruiter. Employers are a bit too complacent. Those surveyed say 49% of their employees are in the...

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

The labor market is tightening, wages are on the rise, and while employers may have had the upper-hand in the past, a distinct shift is underway. Employees are now calling the shots. What does this mean for employers and how they attract, retain and engage talent? The ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) commissioned a new survey to find out. From the results, ADP® developed two papers, “Evolution of Work 2.0; The Me vs. We Mindset,” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market,” which found employees tend to concentrate on their work environment, look for meaning in their job, and want immediate advancement opportunities (the “me” mindset). Whereas, employers tend to focus on bigger picture areas like financial performance, reputation, and long-term career pathing (the “we” mindset). A strengthening economy opens doors According to the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report, job switching is at an all-time high with about 27 percent of U.S. workers changing jobs on an annual basis.
