Simmons Foods Serves Up More Strategic Workforce Decisions with ADP's DataCloud and Recruiting Solutions
To do this,
"Prior to ADP, we were struggling to get quick, reliable data," said
"The simplified reporting tool has made the analysis of human resources data easier than ever. Providing easy access to the real-time data saves not only our HR teams but also our operational and payroll teams a lot of time, freeing them up to be more strategic partners," added Paynter. "Using analytics, we've been able to quickly validate whether training programs are achieving their goal -- developing leaders and reducing turnover. By gaining deeper insights into the outcomes, we're able to improve programs that weren't 100 percent successful and ensure we're investing our money wisely. That's been a huge win for us."
Analytics also revealed
Paynter is also looking forward to using predictive analytics, powered by ADP DataCloud, including the turnover probability solution.
"High turnover is really inherent in the poultry industry," said Paynter. "It will be invaluable to better understand all of the different factors that are driving turnover so that we can get ahead of them. We want to ensure we're doing everything we can to make Simmons a comfortable, family environment where employees really want to stay."
"We're so excited that
In addition to using the ADP DataCloud,
"Our HR team used to process paper applications, so candidates would often have to drive over an hour to some of our larger facilities to apply in person," said Paynter. "Giving people the ability to apply from anywhere is a huge win for our applicants and for us."
For Paynter, it all comes back to having the necessary data at her fingertips and driving efficiency. The recruiting solution enables the Simmons team to keep up with the number of requisitions open for certain shifts, people who have applied, applications that were started but not completed, and who's leaving and why in real time.
"Human Resources has historically provided the executive team with a monthly snapshot of where we were in the hiring cycle," added Paynter. "To do this, it would require several different business units to pull together paper forms and records. Now, we are enabling a future where our business leaders can easily review that data on a daily basis. This simply wasn't possible before."
Paynter added that armed with reliable, real-time data, her team no longer has to rely on inaccurate reports and "gut feel" to make decisions.
"We now have quantitative and qualitative data to both prove our HR programs are working and improve on them in real time," she concluded. "That's a win for HR, and it's a win for the business leaders we support."
