What Makes Your Company A Great Place to Work?

The way others perceive your company can be critical to attracting, engaging, and retaining top employees. A strong message that clearly communicates why you’re an employer of choice can set you apart from your competition and help attract like-minded employees. That’s why many successful companies actively develop an employer brand to highlight their reputation as a great place to work. Here are some guidelines for developing and communicating your brand: Assess reputation. Your culture and brand are unique to you. Consider conducting surveys among applicants, new hires, and long-term employees to find out how they perceive your company. This will establish a baseline by which you can measure the effectiveness of future employer marketing campaigns. Identify strengths. While not every employer can offer the highest pay, you likely have strengths that are attractive to certain workers. Think about what makes your workplace unique and what you value.

Fact or Fiction? The Truth About Research & Development Tax Credits

Among the many tax credits and incentives the federal government provides to U.S. businesses, the research and development (“R&D”) tax credit remains largely overlooked and underutilized, meaning companies may be missing out on claiming up to thousands of dollars of credits.

Talent Management Made Easy at Reading Cooperative Bank with ADP Workforce Now®

Reading Cooperative Bank (RCB), founded in 1886, is a 21st century bank with traditional values, committed to putting people over profits. And the employees and customers of the bank actually own it! Maxine Hart, chief human resources officer (CHRO) faced the challenge of acquiring new talent in their diverse socio-economic communities. “The challenge, obviously, is that the talent we bring in and the types of processes we use in some of the communities that we serve are not the same as those we use for a more traditional branch. Recruitment was a cumbersome process, which really left the HR team bogged down with the volume of candidates, many of whom were really not qualified for the role.” Then RCB discovered ADP Workforce Now®, which has completely changed the way that the bank manages recruiting, talent acquisition, payroll and benefits for their workforce. Get the full story on how ADP Workforce Now® helped RCB streamline their recruiting and benefits administration practices. Share this:Click to email (Opens in new window)Click to...

ADP Legislative Update: New House Bill Could Make WOTC Permanent

On August 11, 2017, House of Representatives (H.R.)

ADP celebrates National Payroll Week!

For 22 years now, National Payroll Week has accompanied Labor Day to celebrate over 150 million hard-working Americans and the payroll professionals who get them their wages. Also for 22 years, ADP is proud to be the sole Diamond Sponsor of National Payroll Week. Founded by the American Payroll Association (APA), the week has unswervingly focused on one goal: to help workers better understand and manage their pay. Eight percent of workers reported last year that they were not certain if their paychecks were the correct amount. Another 22 percent were only somewhat certain. And payroll professionals’ work goes beyond wages too. American workers’ social security, Medicare, child support and other benefits are tied into the same system. The APA is dedicated to ensuring workers understand their whole paycheck, including the impact of different benefits and withholdings, and ADP is committed to help. This September 4-8, 2017, local APA will host presentations for schools, civic groups and others to spread understanding of the payroll system and its benefits. ADP...

The city of Waycross, located in Ware County, Georgia, employs approximately 205 employees across many diverse departments, including public safety, engineering, public works and even a local television station. As a governmental unit, the city needs to be cost efficient in the way in which it operates and stays compliant with applicable federal, state and local regulation. Trinija Martin, Director of HR & Risk Management and Public Information Officer for the City of Waycross started working with the city in 2015 and found that the systems in place at the time were limited and outdated, requiring plenty of manual processes to complete routine tasks. Of all the prospective partners that Martin looked at, ADP impressed her the most. “ADP was the only company at that time that had a single-source solution that wasn’t backed by any other solution,” Martin said. “It truly was a total ADP solution.
