ADP Women in STEM Profile: Soumaia Mawad

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Soumaia Mawad

How does an engineer successfully manage a sales division and a family? Figure out what works and what doesn’t, then do more of the first. When Soumaia Mawad was starting her mechanical and electrical engineering program in college, she could not have imagined running a regional sales division for an HR technology company. But part of being a great engineer is being willing to test and try things until you find out what works best. Soumaia’s approach is simply this: See past your expectations; be open to possibilities you haven’t thought of; then test, evaluate, and be willing to do things differently. Her comprehension of the differences between how you understand things going in and what they really are was crystalized when her family immigrated to the United States from Egypt when she was almost 7.

Soumaia and her...

HRE Daily features ADP’s Ahu Yildirmaz: Thinking Like an Economist

HRE Daily wrote a recent article about incorporating analytics into hiring and HR practices, featuring Ahu Yildirmaz, Co-Head of the ADP Research Institute®. According to workforce industry economists speaking at a session titled “The Real Economics of HR Technology: Using Big Data to Drive HR Decision Making” during the HR Tech Conference on October 11th, you don’t need to be a tech giant to incorporate analytics into your hiring and HR practices. In fact, employers that aren’t using analytics to improve recruiting and other aspects of people management put themselves at a distinct disadvantage. A tight labor market that is intensifying competition for workers, technological innovation, the evolution of how work gets done and changing labor demographics make it imperative to plan for the future, and analytics are the best way to do that, economists said. “CHROs have to think like economists, not just CHROs, but the entire C-suite should be using data to understand how best to allocate talent resources to optimize their workforce and increase margins,” said...

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. What’s more, significant pay gaps increase a...

Women in STEM with Rita Mitjans

By Heather Bussing – Part 1 in the ADP Women in STEM series How does an organization change? One conversation at a time. Rita Mitjans, ADP Chief Diversity and Corporate Responsibility Officer, believes that lasting change starts with understanding what needs to change and why. It starts at the top, but you need to win the hearts and minds of everyone involved. Trust is essential, and to earn it, you must do your homework so you can build the case for why the change you are proposing will benefit the things they care about. It takes integrity, hard work, and thoughtful conversations with people experiencing the issues to understand what to do. To inspire real change, you need to make the case in many “languages”. Becoming Bilingual Learning to speak the language of the person she’s working with comes naturally to Rita. When she was seven, her family left their home and everything they owned and were welcomed to the United States as political refugees from Cuba. When they...
