Four Ways Small Businesses Can Compete for Top Talent

Four Ways Small Businesses Can Compete for Top Talent

Ask any business leader today what he or she is worried about, and they will most likely discuss the challenge of attracting and retaining top talent. Nowhere is this concern greater than in the minds of small-business owners. It is even tougher when the job market tightens. October was one of the best job-creating months this year, with 235,000 private-sector jobs added. This means the pool of unemployed workers continues to shrink and current workers are being lured with big pay bumps to switch jobs. It’s causing managers — from companies big and small — to worry about how they can compete for skilled workers. This is especially challenging for small businesses. When small businesses need to fill a job, they are going up against the recruitment campaigns, salaries and benefits that larger companies can offer. However, despite the challenge of fewer candidates seeking work and the pressure to retain current employees, small businesses can have a real advantage in attracting and retaining top talent if they use their...

Dynamic Growth at Beeline: ADP Can Help

Dynamic Growth at Beeline: ADP Can Help

Beeline is a software company which offers end- to-end procurement of contingent labor in nearly 70 countries. Through a divestiture and two acquisitions over the past eight years, Beeline has grown from 170 employees to over 450 employees globally– a large-scale change with immense impact on the organization’s culture and HR structure. With its second acquisition in December 2016, Beeline’s HR staff worked to onboard acquired employees, with only three months to manage the moving parts and processes of preparing for open enrollment and providing benefits options. Accompanying these challenges was the strategic alignment of the HR department. Traci Kellner, executive vice president of Human Capital at Beeline, works hard to ensure that HR is visibly present, engaged and working with leadership to drive sustainable, organizational change. However, when the team is buried behind administrative tasks, processes, manual adjustments and more – it’s not possible to scale the way the department needs to. To maintain the innovative spirit at the heart of its business, the HR team at Beeline...

Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Thanksgiving Cooking Is Finished But Here’s An Easy Recipe for Improving Your Job Descriptions

Job descriptions can help you identify the essential functions of the job and the qualifications needed for a role. They can also help you set clear expectations with employees, evaluate performance, make compensation decisions, identify training needs, handle requests for reasonable accommodations, and make exempt vs. non-exempt classification decisions. Here are six guidelines for developing effective job descriptions: #1: Be consistent. To help make valid comparisons between jobs, use the same format for each job description. Generally, this includes: Job details: job title, supervisor’s title, exempt vs. non-exempt classification, a brief summary of the job, and the date the job description was created or last revised. Essential functions: job duties that an employee must be able to perform with or without a reasonable accommodation. Non-essential functions: additional tasks the employee may be required to perform during the course of his or her job, but are not essential to the job. Qualifications and skills: training, education, certification(s), and years of experience needed to perform the job. Physical demands and work...

Inc.com Features ADP on Five Keys to Creating a Culture That Stands Apart

What’s the X Factor that sets one business apart from the others? Is it offering the right service at the right time? People who are dedicated and engaged in working toward success? Customers that advocate for your business? These are all important, yet, you could have all these things going for you and still fail. So what’s the real secret to success? I recently talked to three business leaders who shared their lessons for identifying the X factor that can set your business and culture apart. People are one of the most important factors in any business. They’re the ones making decisions that impact customers, and they’re the ones who determine whether your culture exists on paper, or in real life. Hiring the right people and managing them so they can do their best work are critical to the success of any business. But, if it’s so foundational, why do so many organizations struggle with it? Jordan Birnbaum is VP and Chief Behavioral Economist at TalentX, an ADP Venture;...

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...
