ADP Workforce Now

We are a company of 100-130 (employees throughout the year) and have multiple needs within all of our departments. WFN takes care of all of those needs: from payroll management to information sharing. We are about to upgrade to a PTO system and are excited to explore the time tracking, shared calendars, and more. We currently use the system for traditional payroll/information tracking and as a global communication system. This platform has changed my life as an HR professional and I have very limited negative feedback.

Globoforce

Globoforce is good for organizations that are growing and want to be able to keep morale high and also want to allocate a specific budget for each manager to reward their employees who do exceptional jobs on assigned or additionally requested work. It is less appropriate for organizations that are bootstrapped for funds, or already have great methods of rewarding their employees in unique and meaningful ways.

Pros

  • Employee self-service - eliminate paperwork, give your employees power, and simplify your workflow!
  • Intranet system - share what's new with your staff, track all of your company's policy forms, and roll-out various trainings!
  • Onboarding activities (custom activity management) - eliminate all your new hire paperwork and focus cultural assimilation during those first couple of days!

  • Globoforce makes the process of rewarding employees who do a great job easy for managers and leaders internationally
  • Globoforce helped me write kind electronic thank-you notes that came through to their inboxes in great, simple formats
  • Globoforce was great in showing clear options on what exactly I could use the eGift Card for from doing a great job on certain projects

Cons

  • We are unable to make HR changes once a payroll period is open which means that we often have to wait until the last minute to open a period which is difficult.
  • The inability to keep more than two weeks open at a time is problematic for our organization. We pay on a semi-monthly basis and it is hard sometimes to close a week because any changes by supervisors have to be in before you open a new pay period.
  • Implementation time to set up is very long and strenuous. Making changes to time and attendance policies and other systematic changes can be difficult and time consuming.
  • It feels at times as if the shifts between the different modules don't work as well as they were sold to us. Such as Time Off and Time and Attendance can cause many error messages that are confusing to supervisors and staff.

  • Globoforce’s user interface was a bit dated - having a sleeker user interface will make it more adopted by many managers
  • Globoforce sometimes only worked in specific internet browsers for me - not sure if this is the case for others in other organizations
  • Globoforce didn’t fill the entire internet browser screen when I used it, making it occasionally difficult to read

We are happy with ADP Workforce Now. Set up is rather simple and will accommodate almost any/every need for your business in the areas of HR, Payroll., & Compliance. Support can be inconsistent but every process has an online manual with step by step instructions that make troubleshooting much easier. We rarely need to call support. Payroll tax is and tax filing are second to none and processing/importing is rather simple.

Support

ADP Workforce Now6.7
Based on 14 answers
ADP has gone back to the designated "team support" module for clients on the newer versions of WFN, and the introduction of "The Bridge" has just added additional resources for problem resolution. It is a blog of current users who can share ideas/solutions in real time. And open case numbers are relatively east to track, and will allow the clients to view status of specific cases in the near future. We currently have no open items!

Online Training

Based on 5 answers
The instructions from the recruiting agency on how to use the system was pretty straightforward. It provided step-by-step procedures on where you would need to log in your hours as well as what you would need to highlight (i.e. regular, overtime, etc.) detailing the type of hours that were worked overall. The handout also provided some pictures of the application

Implementation

ADP Workforce Now7.4
Based on 8 answers
Either assign more than one specialist to the implementation process, or assign less clients to the implementation specialist. The process requires attention to detail and the ability to test and re-test as well as verify the information. It also requires a lot of back and forth between the client ant the implementation specialist, so they need to be readily available during the whole implementation process.

Return on Investment

  • We are consultants for companies that have chosen WFN so ROI is not relevant for us but I believe it is good return if implemented properly
Les Meyer profile photo
  • Globoforce helped me provide a faster way to send a meaningful thank you note to my colleagues via email as opposed to mailing it and expensing the shipping for each note
