In a press release, ADP DataCloud announced that it will continue to roll out additional features by 2021, providing more insights that could guide businesses in making the shift to a more inclusive work environment.
ADP DataCloud's Organizational Benchmarks can now go over headcounts, labor costs, and turnover to understand how their own company benchmarks compare to industry standards. It would help them understand parts of their current organization that might be too heavy, or too lean.
With Organizational Benchmarks, companies can better visualize how balanced they are compared to their contemporaries.

With the Turnover Storyboard, ADP DataCloud can provide values for potential retention rates, as well as the corresponding cost savings from certain adjustment strategies.
Enhanced Recruitment Experience
Taking headhunting and recruitment to the next level, the ADP DataCloud Profile Relevancy tool has been further improved with compensation benchmarks to better visualize candidate views. The tool has been helpful in the assessment and matching of applicants to business openings within the organization, and its latest upgrade makes it more accurate and more powerful, making human resource tasks more convenient.

The DataCloud for the North American country will offer its own benchmarks, available down to the provincial level.
