Culture at Work Award Winner: Casey’s General Stores
This award honors an organization that deploys programs that drive sustained employee engagement through a dynamic, best-in-class workplace culture.  Casey’s, a convenience store/gas station chain with 2,000 stores in the Midwest, actively promoted an enhancement with ADP Recruiting Management to mitigate issues with new hires being ineligible for the Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) due to hire date discrepancies.  As a result, Casey’s experienced zero new hires dropping from WOTC eligibility, with an anticipated result of six figure improvement in tax credit dollars captured.  Additionally, with the rollout of ADP DataCloud and Executive and Manager Insights, Casey’s was able to serve necessary HR data straight to the managers without using cumbersome spreadsheets.  This data was delivered directly to the smartphones of the managers that need to make real time decisions, resulting in greater control over employment spend by greatly reducing overtime Costs, while saving the managers 30 minutes per week at the same time.

People at Work Award Winner: Victra
This award showcases an organization that encourages its people to thrive in the face of HCM transformation, resulting in improved efficiencies and/or saved resources. Victra, an exclusive agent for Verizon Wireless with operations in 1,040 stores and 47 states, partnered with ADP to implement Optimized Scheduling and Budgeting with our Enterprise eTIME® solution to leverage POS and traffic data to align their staff with customer demand. As a result, Victra store sales conversion rose by 4.5 percent and Net Promoter Scores (NPS) rose by 6.5 percent.  The tools implemented for Victra were made available as an option for all Enterprise eTIME Retail and Hospitality clients. Victra has since implemented the ADP proprietary program to place their best employees during peak business times creating significant incremental sales conversion.

Innovation at Work Award Winner: Valley Bank 
This award recognizes an organization that has demonstrated a commitment to driving workplace innovation. Valley, a national bank headquartered in Wayne, New Jersey, is dedicated to implementing the latest technology to engage employees while building a culture where innovation, collaboration and ideas are drivers for success. Recently, Valley turned its HR systems into a “one stop shop” through MyADP. Employees were quick to deliver positive feedback regarding the new interface, with many employees embracing the single point of entry for all HCM services. Valley’s early adoption of the ADP Mobile Solutions App helped it establish its own mobile presence and provided key insight in the innovation of this solution for all ADP clients. Valley’s dedication to best in class, cutting-edge solutions has kept it on the forefront of HCM innovation.

GlobalSolutions at Work Award: Cisco Systems, Inc.
This award celebrates a global organization that has successfully demonstrated HCM leadership by leveraging technology and processes around the world.  The Marcus Buckingham Company, an ADP company, partnered with Cisco Systems, Inc., to conduct engagement research with a focus on helping employees use their strengths to drive excellence in their teams.
