Members of the HR and finance teams at Fairlife in Chicago, Ill., an 800-employee manufacturing facility, were accustomed to sending spreadsheets and PowerPoints back and forth to track head count. Those spreadsheets included positions slotted to be filled and the budget associated with those roles. It was all tracked by hand and, therefore, was tedious, especially when the finance team was tracking the rates and roles.
According to Shannon Brozewicz, director of corporate HRBP and organizational capabilities, before her team implemented Built for Teams® — an integrated solution available through ADP Marketplace — they'd spend hours on spreadsheets and PowerPoint files to keep up with headcount via a manual tracking process to review vacancies, role changes, and filled positions. Since doubling their headcount in the past three years and projecting to double again in the next two, it's not hard to imagine the amount of manual work that went into keeping up with their growth.
"Knowing that Built for Teams was already vetted by ADP Marketplace and could integrate with our existing ADP Workforce Now® was important," said Brozewics. "Now I get to spend more time on the strategic aspect of talent and position management for our organization."
A daily sync instead of a manual process
"Using ADP Workforce Now and Built for Teams together is ideal," said Borozewicz, "because the data between them syncs daily. All the updated employee positions — whether vacant, filled, shifted or terminated — automatically update. This lets us continuously see how things change and gives us a holistic view of our organization. Plus, now our finance team can go in any time and pull the information they need. No more sending spreadsheets back and forth."
It was important to Brozewics that Built for Teams was already vetted by ADP Marketplace and could integrate with their existing ADP Workforce Now solution.
"If we're investing in something, we wanted the assurance that it would work with what we already had. Now that we have a way to manage our head count so much better, I get to spend more time on the strategic aspect of talent and position management for our organization, and that's been very rewarding," said Brozewics.
