ADP: Analyst Day Priorities
Last week, ADP held its annual industry analyst day in NYC. Its priorities for the event included communicating its identity and progress as a global HCM company, its innovations in talent management, and its benefit services. Of course no ADP analyst day would be complete without product demos.
To begin the day, Carlos Rodriguez, CEO, spoke about the company’s vision to become the global HCM market leader. With workforces expanding globally, talent shortages, and the need to be more strategic, the international HCM opportunity is huge and ADP is determined to be at the center of it all. Given its large client footprint for its payroll and time and attendance solutions, integrating talent management functions including learning, compensation, and performance will be paramount for global domination in the HCM market.
Well-timed with the analyst event was ADP’s announcement that it launched an integrated end-to-end platform for talent management. In addition to talent acquisition, compensation and performance management, and succession, the talent management suite now leverages advanced learning management tools, learning content from Bersin and Associates, and an enterprise competency framework, and will be available for both its GlobalView and Vantage platforms.
ADP’s HCM toolbox is loaded and ready to be used. The GlobalView platform is available in 81 countries; the general availability date for Vantage has moved up to June; and WorkforceNow, which includes integrated HR, payroll, time and labor management, benefits, and talent management will soon support Canada. On the back-end, it would be great to see some HR BPO opportunities beyond payroll arise, and the company has been busy making enhancements to this portfolio as well.
In addition to its acquisition of the The RightThing, which brought in RPO capabilities, ADP has been quite busy building up its benefits business. There is great potential for benefits outsourcing due to changing regulations and complexities, not to mention the fact that an HCM market leader would not be complete without a strong benefits offering. Investments began with the Workscape acquisition, and continued with Asparity (for decision-support tools, analytics, and reporting) and SHPS (for reimbursement account administration and absence management). Finally, it added a Strategic Advisory Services offering to provide value-added analytics and advice to clients.
