ADP Honored by Junior Achievement with U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award

By Raj Uttamchandani, vice president of business relationship management and client relations at ADP As a Junior Achievement (JA) of New Jersey board member for the past four years, I’m proud to announce that ADP has received the U.S. President’s Volunteer Service Award for a second straight year. This award recognizes that ADP provided at least 5,000 volunteer hours to local Junior Achievement area offices during the 2016-2017 school year. In 2003, President George W. Bush established the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation which created this award program as a way to thank and honor individuals who inspire others to engage in volunteer service. In 2006, Junior Achievement became an official certifying organization for this award, which recognizes corporations with a U.S. presence that provide volunteers to teach JA programs anywhere in the world. How exactly has ADP been working with JA? Several times a year, our associates nationwide volunteer at their local Junior Achievement chapters taking part in programs like JA BizTown® and JA Finance Park®.These...

Helping Employees Excel at Work with StandOut

By Sreeni Kutam, Interim Chief Human Resources Officer Wouldn’t it be great if you came to work each day knowing that you’d be able to tap into your strengths and focus on activities that you can truly excel at? How engaged and excited to come to work would you feel? When you consider that job hopping is at an all-time high, it’s now more important than ever that organizations focus on ways to develop and engage their top talent. Think about what’s at stake. According to 2017 Gallup® research, high employee engagement leads to 21 percent higher profitability, 20 percent higher sales, 70 percent reduction in safety incidents, and 24 percent lower turnover. So how do we help employees feel excited and engaged? From my vantage point, personal engagement is a combination of what I contribute to the organization and how the organization contributes to my success. Because of its dual nature, it’s important for employees to understand their own contribution to this cycle. My contribution doesn’t necessarily have...

Purpose in Action: How to Promote the Inclusion of Women in Leadership

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Today, women make up more than half of the national labor force. They earn almost 60 percent of all graduate degrees and 60 percent of master’s degrees.1 At S&P 500 companies, women make up 44 percent the overall workforce.2 But in the top ranks of the corporate world, it’s a different story. Women comprise only 21 percent of the board seats at those same S&P 500 companies, and only 6 percent are CEOs. In the legal field, 45 percent of associates are women but only 22 percent are partners.3 Women of color face even steeper challenges, holding only 4.7 percent of executive- or senior-level positions at S&P 500 companies.4 In 2017, after the departure of Ursula Burns as CEO of Xerox, not a single Fortune 500 company was led by an African American woman.5 These numbers might seem bleak, but when I started my career decades ago, the disparity was even greater. The good news: we are making progress! Nonetheless, we have a long way to go to achieve...

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Numerous studies have shown that companies with more diverse teams have stronger financial performance. According to McKinsey & Company, companies that exhibit gender and ethnic diversity are respectively 21 percent and 33 percent more likely to outperform those that don’t. Further, innovation requires different thinking. It takes people of different backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities to bring new perspectives to the table that fuel new strategies, and solutions to affect change. At ADP®, we know that attracting and retaining diverse talent is critical to our growth and we strive to ensure that our workplace is inclusive and values the contribution of every individual.

6 Keys to Turning an Employee into a Manager

When you need a manager, filling the opening with an internal candidate can save valuable time, energy, and money. But, you shouldn’t just stick an employee, even a high performing one, in a manager’s role and expect them to succeed. Employees need to be groomed and trained to be successful managers. Here are some tips for preparing an employee to become a manager. #1: Define Skills Start by defining the skills needed to be a successful manager at your company. Keep in mind that managers must make important decisions related to hiring, promotion, discipline, termination, goal-setting, budgets, and employee engagement. In addition to necessary leadership and interpersonal skills, think about the short-term and long-term goals of your company and the type of managers needed to meet those goals. #2: Identify Candidates Identify high potential employees who have leadership capabilities. Avoid acting on explicit and implicit biases when evaluating potential candidates. For example, don’t assume employees wouldn’t be interested in additional responsibilities or time commitments because of family obligations. Use...
