With record-low unemployment creating talent scarcity, increasing regulatory and compliance challenges, and a growing focus on workplace culture, small and mid-sized business (SMB) owners are facing critical workforce management challenges. At South by Southwest® (SXSW®) 2019, ADP TotalSource, the largest certified1 Professional Employer Organization (PEO) in the United States, showcased how an enhanced PEO offering can help business leaders better address these challenges.
“As the needs of the workforce evolve, we recognized that our offerings must equally evolve to address the changing world of work,” said Brian Michaud, senior vice president of ADP TotalSource. “With constant updates to business regulations, changing global economies and advancements in technology, companies can benefit from having a partner in business growth. ADP TotalSource can provide valuable strategic guidance on current issues and trends including talent shortages and the growing emphasis on employer brand perception. Through these ever-evolving enhancements, we look forward to continuing to help our clients drive their overall business success.”
The full-service PEO offering gives business owners real-time data insights and benchmarks, a blueprint to help clients unlock employee potential, investigation support for workplace issues such as harassment or discrimination, and a patent-pending approach to help businesses confidently select the right plan offerings for their employees and family members. This, in addition to the standard capabilities of a PEO, are just a few of the enhancements that align with the modern day workplace.
“Once I turned to ADP TotalSource, I immediately received the support and training I needed to be an effective HR professional,” said Angie Nocktonick, GM for Andes Coil Processors LLC. “My HR Business Partner worked with me to develop a comprehensive talent package with the goal of retaining employees. Most importantly, I was able to successfully handle employee and HR needs while, without knowing, grow in my career thanks to the knowledge I received through my work with ADP TotalSource.”
A PEO like ADP TotalSource allows a small or midsized company to offer the same services and benefits as those at a global enterprise, without the need to staff an enterprise-size HR department.
“Here at Gloo, we are constantly evaluating our employee experience and challenging ourselves to go above and beyond with our offerings,” said Audrianna Hart, Human Resources Manager at Gloo. “Entering 2019, we partnered with ADP TotalSource to provide our employees access to a rich benefit plan that provided the maximum benefits, and feedback thus far has been fantastic. But this is only the beginning. Through the data and analytics dashboard available with ADP TotalSource, we have the ability to dive deep into perceptions of engagement and recognition to continue to improve company morale while fine-tuning our program – ultimately creating a great experience for our employees.”
