ADP Helps Guide Sika Through a Rapid Growth Spurt

ADP Helps Guide Sika Through a Rapid Growth Spurt

Sika North America likes to grow – quickly. In the past five years alone, it took on the payrolls for seven acquisitions, expanding its workforce from 868 to approximately 1,500. With workers spread across 45 states, keeping pace with payroll changes is a challenge. Lisa Panagos, Payroll Manager at Sika North America, has one direct report to help her process three weekly and four semi-monthly multistate payrolls, which include union and nonunion employees. “We grow by acquisition. It’s been a very reliable, successful strategy,” says Panagos, “but because of that, we don’t grow it slowly. It’s more like leaps and bounds. And because we grow by acquisition, our payroll complexity can change in unforeseen ways.” As Sika North America’s payroll complexity increased, Panagos says her department required a more robust solution. As a result, Sika migrated to ADP Workforce Now® to meet their more complex needs for payroll, time and labor management and paid time off (PTO).

ADP Solutions for Payroll, Workers’ Compensation and Employee Handbooks Hit ‘The Spot’ for Local Restaurateur

Ever since she was a teenager, Cassie Fishkin dreamed of owning a restaurant – a comfortable, informal little place where people could gather for long conversations and healthy food. She told herself it would be her “retirement” career after she’d succeeded as an attorney. She never imagined her passion to be a restaurateur would outweigh her desire to practice law. Once she’d made that life-changing decision, however, Fishkin bought into a restaurant partnership and began honing a new set of skills. She rotated through every position, learning the nuances and challenges of restaurant management. She combined her business acumen and creativity, and realized that she’d finally found her professional niche. In 2015, she also realized her dream when she opened the doors of her bistro, The Spot, in Montclair, N.J. At first catering to walk-in, take-out and delivery business, the restaurant grew to accommodate patrons who wanted to sit and linger over their meals. With this growth, as most small business owners learn, came myriad day-to-day challenges that absorbed...

Growing Producer of Natural Pet Snacks, Pet ‘n Shape, Says Using ADP for Payroll, Retirement Services and Time Tracking is a Real ‘Treat’

During the past decade, the number of people pursuing a natural food lifestyle has continued to multiply. Additives, dyes, biological and technological tinkering with how food is grown, processed, packaged and sold, all are being increasingly scrutinized. Foods with labels displaying a litany of unpronounceable ingredients are falling out of favor. Not surprisingly, those shoppers who yearn for the oft-touted benefits of natural, home-grown fare are extending their standards to the foods they buy for their pets. Twelve years ago, that’s the niche Pet ‘n Shape® – a California-based producer of natural, healthy dog treats and chews – set out to fill. What began as a one-man, one-car trek to retailers, trade shows and distributors in California, Arizona, and Nevada has burgeoned into a successful brand serving online and brick and mortar retail outlets nationwide. Pet ‘n Shape offers more than 40 varieties of pet treats and chews made from natural chicken, turkey, lamb, pork and beef, satisfying one of the fastest growing categories within the pet industry.
