The Best Companies for Women 2017: ADP Makes the List

As employers strive to create workplaces where women thrive, Comparably has put together a list of the companies doing it best – and ADP is a part of this prestigious list of companies. In response to this announcement, Dino Flammia of New Jersey 101.5 interviewed ADP’s Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer Rita Mitjans. She discussed ADP’s focused effort on advancing women and how the company is measuring employee sentiment to keep female employees engaged. Mitjans says, “Seeking market rankings like this, especially those that are generated specifically by employee feedback…is very meaningful.” Read the full article here: “The only NJ company that’s among the best for women.” Share this:Click to email (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Share on Facebook (Opens in new...

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?

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.

ADP Women in STEM Profile: 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...
