ADP Talent Management Helps Organizations Gain a Quantifiable Competitive Advantage

Correlation Between Employee Engagement and Business Results to Be Examined in Webinar on Oct. 29, 2009

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - October 28, 2009) -  ADP ®, a leading provider of HR, payroll and benefits administration services, is seeing early client successes related to the rollout of its new integrated talent management solution. Based on leading software from provider Cornerstone OnDemand, ADP's talent management solution provides large employers with best-in-class performance, succession management, learning, compensation and enterprise social networking, along with powerful reporting and analytics.

"Talent management has become a business imperative for organizations looking to maximize the productivity and success of their workforce," said Regina Lee, President, ADP National Account Services and Employer Services International. "Our clients clearly recognize this and can now leverage an integrated talent management solution to identify, align and reward top performers."

The combination of talent management functions and an integrated single sign-on platform gives organizations a powerful planning and management tool to aid with recruitment, performance management and learning management.

"It's critical for us to reinforce and continue to grow our culture of member engagement and continuous improvement," said Ann Ringey, Vice President of Member and Community Relations for Hearth and Home Technologies, an operating company of HNI Corporation. HNI is an early adopter of ADP's new solution. "We anticipate that ADP's talent management solution will enable us to further refine talent processes and drive results through member collaboration, development and performance."

HNI is an 8,700 member organization that also leverages ADP for outsourced payroll, HR, benefits administration, COBRA, and FSA.

According to research from Knowledge Infusion, a human capital management talent management consultancy, organizations that develop and implement talent management strategies that align with corporate goals often produce results that can be tied directly to gains in revenue and customer satisfaction. In fact, 92 percent of business leaders recognized that superior talent and employee engagement gives organizations a competitive advantage.

"Despite the benefits, many organizations still do not have the proper tools or rigor needed to deploy effective talent management programs across the enterprise," said Jason Corsello, Vice President, Knowledge Infusion. "The good news is that automated solutions make deployment and adherence to a talent program easier than ever. There are no more excuses for organizations to under leverage the skills and power of their employees." 

According to Corsello, the guiding principles of effective talent management that all organizations should consider include:

  • Establish clear business goals
  • Define critical roles
  • Identify talent requirements
  • Leverage talent supply
  • Drive engagement
  • Measure results

Corsello will discuss the relationship between talent management and effective business strategy during an ADP-hosted Webinar on Thurs., Oct. 29 at 3:00 p.m. EST, titled, "The Business of Talent Management." To find out more information or to register for the Webinar please click here.
