ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

ADP Integration with Slack Puts HR and Payroll Information Right Where Employees are Working

The way work gets done has changed dramatically over the past few years and that change promises to accelerate even faster as we look ahead. This means companies’ abilities to meet the needs of employees is increasingly challenging. Organizations are faced with a diverse talent pool, which now spans five generations and is expanding across geographic borders. At the same time, the rapid pace of technology development is having spillover effects into the workforce. This is transforming how teams are structured and how work is getting done. At ADP®, we believe it’s time technology enabled the changing ways we work rather than asking the workforce to adapt to technology. Technology should transcend barriers, not create new ones. One way we are accomplishing this is through reimagining how users experience our solutions.

Fast-growing NYC Firm Looks to Chart its Future

New York City-based CANY is a tale of two companies. But when it comes to its family-oriented, close-knit workplace culture, it’s strictly single-minded. Divided into separate entities – CANY Architecture +Engineering DPC and CANY Technical Services LLC – CANY provides a full suite of building enclosure services to a range of clients. The firm primarily focuses on historical restoration and maintaining the style of an existing building. In addition, CANY also oversees new construction, to help ensure building is up to code and safe. Jennifer Pucci, Director of Human Resources at CANY, says the firm’s recent success spike has been a challenge, as CANY has swiftly moved from 20 employees to around 60 today – with plans to expand to 125-plus within the next 4-5 years. CANY implemented ADP Workforce Now®, a cloudbased HR platform for payroll, time, benefits and more at the start of 2018.

Taking the Mystery Out of Managing Talent

Being in a business where your customers are thrilled by trying to solve escape room mysteries can be a rewarding endeavor. When it comes to staffing, in this quick-paced dynamic environment you want few, if any, surprises. In just a little over three years, All in Adventures has grown from one location to 31 in 15 states, with plans to expand. The fast-growing company is projecting to more than double its number of locations in 2018. Competition is fierce and intensifying for this unique retail category, with the industry growing from just a hand full of escape room companies a few years ago to more than 1,800 in 2017.* To ensure that the company executes daily games without any glitches, it is critical that each location is staffed not only with the appropriate talent and skills for each game version, but also that employees are on time and in place when they are scheduled to work. “Without that process operating at maximum efficiency, All in Adventures would lose an...
