A successful information technology services firm for small and medium organizations across 35 states, NexusTek faced one glaring HR challenge. They struggled to provide managers with accurate workforce segmentation analysis needed to recruit, train and retain a diverse pool of talent. We spoke with Suzanne Harris, vice president of HR for the Denver, Colorado-based tech company, about how ADP® DataCloud’s DE&I dashboard provides her team with the tools needed to assess NexusTek’s workforce composition and create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace for all employees. Suzanne shared with us why she’s used ADP exclusively throughout her entire 40-year HR career.
We began using the ADP DataCloud DE&I solution at the start of this year and each quarter we’ve seen improvement. In my last report, we were able to make pretty significant increases in the number of women, Asian, Hispanic and LGBTQ employee groups.

On segmenting workforce data with ADP DataCloud’s DE&I dashboard
With ADP’s DataCloud DE&I dashboard, we are able to look at workforce segmentation data by department and by managers who work across our six separate office locations in different demographic regions. We can make our managers more aware of their numbers and where they have areas that need improvement when it comes to diversity. With the ability to show them jobs by gender and ethnicity, we can help them become more aware in their hiring and employee retention practices so we can continue to improve those numbers.
On DE&I workforce reporting
Data is critical. When you want to grow your company, executives, private equity and shareholders all want data and you have to be able to extract that information and report quickly — maybe even on a moment’s notice. We frequently have to provide reports to our executive team and managers who are looking at the data for their own reasons too. Whether it be from EEO reporting, recruiting, payroll, time and attendance or whether we want to look at promotion and salary data, it’s so critical that we can extract that all quickly and with accuracy. I’m able to pull the data quickly from the DE&I dashboard and create graphs and reports that can show where we need to make improvements and in what areas. All the ADP systems talk to each other so we’re able to get that accuracy we need in reporting.
From managing complex payroll processes to recruiting, training and retaining a diverse pool of talent, career HR professionals continually juggle many tasks. That’s why Suzanne Harris, vice president of human resources at NexusTek, relies exclusively on ADP. In fact, Suzanne has relied on ADP at every job throughout her entire 40-year HR career. See why she continues to trust ADP to meet her team’s evolving HR needs.
