Benchmarking, powered by the ADP® DataCloud provides HR and business leaders with “decision-quality” insights from ADP Big Data.

CNN Money Highlights ADP Research Institute Data

CNN Money recently quoted Ahu Yildirmaz, vice president and head of the ADP Research Institute, in an article titled “U.S. manufacturing job openings at 2007 levels.” Ahu discusses a shift we are seeing in the types of jobs currently available in the manufacturing industry and features data from the Q3 2016 Workforce Vitality Report. In a recent interview Ahu stated: “When we look at our data we see that proportionally more firms are paying on average higher hourly wages. This reflects the overall wage increase in manufacturing, however, it also implies more firms have high skilled, high wage jobs. For example, in 2008, 50% of firms paying more than $25 per hour on average. Today, that number increased to 70%.” With increases in automation, the manufacturing industry has a high demand for high-skill, high wage jobs. This shift also highlights a need for increased training to ensure workers have the skills to fill the openings in the sector. Think this is interesting?

Research-Driven Insights for an Engaged Workforce

ADP’s webcast – “Talent Engagement and Retention – There’s Science Behind It!” – was a big hit and now you can listen to the on-demand version. Five important findings and insights, based on research-backed data about the strategic underscoring of the importance of employee engagement in the workplace, emerged from the webcast: 1) Employee engagement is a quantifiable measure of commitment that an individual feels toward an organization. 2) Despite its importance, in many businesses employee engagement is lacking – less than 33% of U.S. employees are engaged, according to a Gallup poll.1 3) Ensuring development opportunities is critical to drive engagement. ADP’s 2016 Employee Engagement Study reveals that more than nine out of 10 engaged employees are likely to stay at their organization if they have different growth opportunities, as compared to only six out of 10 unengaged employees.2 4) Frequent praise and recognition, through formal and informal measures, from managers, peers and colleagues, are critical to drive engagement. ADP® research shows that unengaged employees are 4.5 times...

Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems Turns to ADP for Open Enrollment and ACA Compliance Help

The main mission of Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems, or SEWS, is to deliver innovative electrical distribution systems to the automotive industry. As an organization that prides itself on developing new technologies and understanding efficient design principles, the company realized it needed to automate its benefits administration process, and do away with paper forms. With 1,700 employees in the United States, Corporate Compensation and Benefits Administrator, Rhonda S. Gearlds was manually entering benefits information for hundreds of employees. To save time and reduce data entry errors, SEWS turned to ADP for help. “Benefits is often one of the most confusing choices employees have to make, so I was often inundated with employee questions during open enrollment,” said Gearlds. “Now with ADP, employees can go online and can see what they’re enrolled in, which family members are covered, and which elections they need to make. Before, employees were always asking questions such as ‘Will my flexible spending account roll over?’ Now, the system alerts them that an election decision needs to...

More Brokers Consider Partnering with PEOs

As trusted advisors on “all things HCM,” the best benefits brokers are having proactive conversations with their clients and prospects about business strategies to manage their needs around talent, compensation and benefits, and risk and compliance — and that includes professional employer organziations (PEOs). There’s been a big shift recently in brokers’ willingness to partner with PEOs, driven mainly by two factors: Companies are looking to their brokers to support the entire human capital experience, especially around talent, and it’s difficult for brokers to build this support model internally. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) has driven more small and midsized businesses to look at PEOs as a good option to help manage health care costs and compliance In an article titled, “Brokers and professional employer organizations: a perfect pairing,” Courtney Simpkiss, ADP Vice President of Broker Channel Strategy shares her insights on this growing trends.

Inclusion Goes Beyond the Numbers: ADP Receives Perfect Score on Human Rights Campaign 2017 Equality Index

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Talking openly about diversity is important to creating an inclusive work environment. However, it holds little value if an organization doesn’t implement policies to put that dialogue into action. I’m proud to say that over the past several years, we have demonstrated our commitment to “walking the talk,” by creating workplace policies and a welcoming environment that enable LGBTQ employees to grow personally and professionally at ADP. Sponsoring business resource groups like ADP Pride serves to engage our LGBTQ employees and their allies in implementing inclusive practices like a voluntary self-identification program and awareness training. ADP Pride has also been instrumental in ensuring we have market-competitive benefits that attracts and retains top LGBTQ talent. For these reasons, ADP has once again received a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2017 Corporate Equality Index — an honor we’ve received for the eighth consecutive year. The Corporate Equality Index is the national benchmarking standard on corporate policies and practices pertinent to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees....
