ADP has launched Workforce Now HR Assist, which equips owners and leaders of midsized businesses with access to expertise, on-demand online documentation, and proven best practices to address HR issues. Businesses can access experienced, certified HR professionals and resources without increasing staff or hiring consultants.
Eliza Jacobs, Director of Finance and Accounting at Direct Waste Services, Inc., said the solution already is adding value to her company.
"I feel very confident about our daily HR operations now that we have HR Assist," Jacobs said. "The entire user interface is easy to navigate and helps us quickly find what we need. We've especially found value in the handbooks and compliance toolkits, which are easy to find and very comprehensive. We also really like the HR Help Desk. If I ever need input from a professional on a pressing issue, I'm able to pick up the phone, call someone, and get the answer I need right away."

Intuit, Stella & Dot Simplify Finances
Intuit Inc. and Stella & Dot, a global fashion accessories brand, announced they are working together to offer Stella & Dot Independent Business Owners in the United States and Canada the ability to manage their finances and tax obligations with QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE). The agreement also applies to sister brand KEEP Collective, which focuses on personalized accessories.
Intuit forecasts that independent workers, including direct sellers like Stella & Dot Independent Stylists, will make up 43% of the American and 45% of the Canadian workforces by 2020, contributing to the overall global trend of self-employment.
Cassie Divine, Vice President and Business Leader of Self-Employed Solutions at Intuit, said self-employment gives people the opportunity to create a business that suits their individual needs.
"We know the freedom and opportunity that comes with being self-employed can bring uncertainty around financial management and tax compliance," Divine said. "QuickBooks Self-Employed offers the tools direct sellers need to effectively manage their businesses, provide line of sight into their financials, and also potentially uncover thousands of dollars in tax deductions."
