ADP Does It Again! Wins ‘Awesome New Technologies’ Award for Record Third Year in A Row

ADP® has scored a three-peat, taking home the title of one of Human Resource Executive’s “Awesome New Technologies,” for a third straight year with its Pay Equity Explorer solution. Pay Equity Explorer is an innovative tool that combines data science and benchmarking and is built on the biggest dataset in human capital management, the award-winning ADP® DataCloud. The solution was developed to help organizations uncover insights and identify potential areas of risk when it comes to gender or race pay gaps so they can stay competitive in the war for talent. In addition to the legal requirements for equitable compensation at the state and federal levels, pay equity can impact an organization’s ability to attract and retain talent. In fact, a study by Aptitude Research Partners found that organizations that make pay equity a priority see on average 13 percent higher engagement levels, have lower than industry average turnover, and are 19 percent more likely to exceed industry average levels of productivity.

ADP Takes Home ‘Top HR Products’ Award For Record-Breaking Third Straight Year with Compass

It’s no secret that great leadership is key to business success. But oftentimes, leadership development tools only provide employees with feedback which is not enough to drive change: They need action plans. With this in mind, ADP® created CompassSM, a next-generation 360 growth tool designed to boost employees’ leadership and collaboration behaviors. Compass was designed for leaders and teams to quickly identify unproductive and derailing behaviors and treat them via feedback and personalized, automated coaching. This talent activation solution is extremely easy to implement and use with no disruption to business. It requires no software to install, no integration, no training, no sign up, and no sign in. It puts tools into the employees’ hands and is built for how humans want to use technology. As a result, the solution has demonstrated quantifiable improvement in leadership behaviors that were identified and coached by Compass in a three month period. Further, the assessment requires only minutes of time investment from each leader or collaborator. The solution recently earned the attention...

The Next Stone in the Path: My Decades-Long Journey as a Woman in Technology

The Next Stone in the Path: My Decades-Long Journey as a Woman in Technology

By Isabel Espina, VP of Enterprise Architecture, ADP and 2016 recipient of Anita Borg Institute “Woman of Vision” award “What’s it like being a woman in tech?” is a question I’m often asked. Throughout my career, the lack of women in STEM-oriented roles has always been very apparent. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, women still account for only 25 percent of full-time workers in computer and mathematical occupations and 14 percent in architecture and engineering.1 When I started my career 30 years ago, this disparity was even more pronounced. I was working in operations for a bank after graduating with my degree in electrical engineering and computer science. Now, as I look back on my career and am celebrating my 20-year anniversary with ADP, I’m happy to say that there has been significant progress. Throughout the past two decades, ADP and I have evolved alongside each other as innovators. Since I was young, I gravitated towards science and math. I loved that these fields provided a problem...

Best Companies for Multicultural Women Balancing Work, Life and Family

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

One of the reasons I am proud to work at ADP is our unwavering focus on providing a workplace that values each individual and enables associates to reach their full potential. The diverse experiences, perspectives, ideas, and backgrounds of our associates are essential in helping ADP deliver great service to our clients and maintain a competitive edge. According to the 2015 Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 70% of mothers of children under age 18 are working or looking for work. Given that, there’s little doubt that working moms, play a critical role in advancing our economy and our own company’s growth.  Considering the impact that women, in particular working moms, have on our business, nurturing a culture of inclusion that enables ADP to leverage the collective talent of multicultural women is not only the right thing to do, but a business imperative. ADP is honored to make the 2016 list for Working Mother Best Companies for Multicultural Women. This is a great achievement made possible by the commitment of...
