ADP Women in STEM Profile: Jennifer Cambern

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Jennifer Cambern

By Heather Bussing – Part 3 in the ADP Women in STEM series Continuing our profiles of some of the many extraordinary women in STEM at ADP, we sat down with Jennifer Cambern, ADP’s Chief Product Owner and Vice President of Product Management for National Account Services. Jennifer has been a huge proponent of Pay Equity for Women and ADP’s Pay Equity Explorer. I’ve heard her speak several times about the issue, most recently at the HR Technology Conference’s Women in HR Tech sessions. Her intelligence, passion, technical expertise, and down to earth approach are always a delight to experience. Here’s a little bit more about Jennifer in her own words. How did you end up in STEM? I have always loved the Life Sciences. I even scored a perfect science score on my ACT test, which supplied funding for my first two years of University as a Botany major. The life sciences are still a source of inspiration. I’m an avid gardener and work to conserve nature through...

Is Working Longer A Smart Retirement Strategy?

Is Working Longer A Smart Retirement Strategy?

By: Kristin Andreski, Senior Vice President/General Manager, ADP Retirement Services Are your employees saving enough to retire when they are ready? According to recent research, chances are they’re not. EBRI’s 2017 Retirement Confidence Survey (RCS) finds almost half (47%) have less than $25,000 in retirement savings. Employees know they need to save more – most (59%) believe they should be saving 20% or more of their household income to live comfortably in retirement and they acknowledge there will be consequences to under-saving. Those consequences include planning to retire later (57%) and saving more later (54%). Today, 38% of employees also expect to retire at age 70 or older. But is planning to work longer really a smart strategy? There are many great reasons to continue working during the retirement years, but a shortfall in retirement savings isn’t one of them. A Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BOAML) report indicates that employees have a number of reasons for staying in the workforce: Staying mentally active – 62% Keeping physically active...

ADP Women in STEM Profile: Soumaia Mawad

By Heather Bussing – Part 2 in the ADP Women in STEM series 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 older sister share the same birthday two years apart. Therefore, that same year, their parents introduced them...

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

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...
