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...

How HR Can Better Use Technology to Drive Talent Strategies

Employee Benefits News recently published an intriguing article by Jordan Birnbaum, ADP Chief Behavioral Economist, titled “How HR Can Better Use Technology to Drive Talent Strategies.” Birnbaum says that behavioral economics (BE) is about understanding the true nature of human behavior and decision-making. Human beings are not always driven by rational self-interest. In fact, much of human behavior and decision-making is actually irrational. But irrational does not mean unpredictable, allowing behavioral economists to anticipate human reactions in order to structure more productive interactions. When BE strategies are used at work, they can help leaders anticipate what truly matters in helping employees feel more engaged, thereby better serving the organization’s mission and the employee experience. Read the full article to learn how BE is influencing the future of work and how HR leaders can utilize technology to help deploy BE...

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Kulsoom Abdullah

By Heather Bussing – Part 4 in the ADP Women in STEM series How does a data scientist change the world? Ask a really great question, then make the case for a new answer. Kulsoom Abdullah’s family is from Pakistan, but she was born in Kansas and then moved to Florida when she was five. Growing up in small towns, Kulsoom learned to stand out early wearing hijab. Islam’s code of modesty extends to all aspects of one’s life, including attire. Hijab, the head-covering worn by Muslim women, is an outer manifestation of an inner commitment to worship God. Hijab is not just a head covering and is not forced. While many people may think that hijab is worn primarily to restrain men’s illicit desires, this is another misconception. In the Muslim faith, it is not a women’s duty to regulate the behavior of men. Men are accountable for their own conduct, and are equally required to be modest and to handle themselves responsibly in every sphere of their...

How Employee Engagement Can Make or Break a Healthcare Organization

By Anuja Vaidya – Becker’s Hospital Review A myriad of employee engagement and retention issues are facing healthcare organizations today, including burnout and depression, labor issues as well as employee strikes. A recent Medscape report shows 42 percent of physician respondents reported being burnt out, with 14 percent of respondents saying they were experiencing both burnout and depression. Research from the American Medical Association, Rochester, Minn.-based Mayo Clinic and Stanford (Calif.) University, published in November 2017, shows one in 50 physicians indicated it was likely or definite they would leave their current practice for another career in the next two years. The research cited burnout, technology dissatisfaction and administrative fatigue as contributing factors to physicians’ decisions to leave medicine. Several healthcare organizations have also found themselves at loggerheads with employee unions in recent years. Service Employees International Union-United Healthcare Workers West members are set to protest between Feb. 14 and March 9 at 32 hospitals owned by Oakland, Calif.-based Kaiser Permanente. The SEIU-UHW, which represents more than 55,000 California-based...

Top-Tier Recruiting Strategies for Small Businesses

Finding great talent can be one of the toughest parts of running a small or midsized business. When you consider that unemployment is at a 17-year low and that job switching is at an all-time high, the task of recruiting top talent can look daunting. Unlike large organizations that have many resources dedicated to hiring, small business owners are often handling it on their own, in addition to many other HR tasks. Recruiting can end up taking valuable time from business owners and hiring managers that could instead be used to boost sales, engage employees and help customers. According to small business owners surveyed by ZipRecruiter® in 2017, 90 percent of respondents reported that candidate quality and availability are their biggest roadblocks when it comes to hiring.1  This is why I am excited to announce that we are teaming with ZipRecruiter to help our small business clients connect with the right candidates quickly. Through this partnership, we are bringing ZipRecruiter’s sophisticated matching technology to the more than 500,000 small...

Data-Driven Insights Can Help Reduce Costly and Disruptive Employee Turnover

In today’s tightening labor market, recruiting and hiring skilled talent isn’t the only challenge employer’s face. The other, equally important, consideration is employee retention. This is especially important amid a 17-year-low for unemployment and increasing market incentives for job-switchers. The ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) recently published a report, “Revelations from Workforce Turnover,” which found that more than 60 percent of employee turnover is voluntary. Using aggregated and anonymized payroll data from more than 41,000 companies and 12.5 million employees, ADPRI identified that, on average, five percent of U.S. employees leave their jobs every month and more than 40 different factors can contribute to their decision to leave. Day-to-day, business and HR leaders witness firsthand the challenges and costs associated with voluntary employee turnover. This includes hiring and training new workers, managing employees through temporary capacity gaps during vacancies, and surviving the loss of valuable institutional knowledge. These are difficulties employers have simply come to accept as the byproduct of turnover. But what if there was a solution? The ADPRI...

Synchronizing your Employee Data Just Got Easier for Oracle HCM Users

By Yan Courtois, Modulus Data – an ADP Marketplace partner In today’s dynamic economy, company culture and employee engagement have never been so important. Providing your employees with easy access to their pay, retirement accounts and more, requires data integrity.
