Given the confusion and ambiguity on return-to-workplace, HCM solutions providers are beginning to integrate features to make it easier for CHROs to navigate shifting strategies.

The latest is ADP, which is more known for its human capital management solutions. It is now offering an ADP Return to Workplace mobile solution to address the diverse needs as the regulatory environment evolves.

This is not just another vaccination tracking tool. ADP has added functionality for employers to track weekly COVID-19 test results, offering options for those waiting on those COVID-19 vaccines and coming from pandemic hotbeds.  

"As our clients look for ways to better understand how their workforce is feeling and how to safely bring employees back to the workplace, we're proud to see this resource provide the confidence and data they need," said Don Weinstein, corporate vice president of global product and technology for ADP.

"We designed ADP's Return to Workplace app to provide critical, dynamic, and timely insight, and we've incorporated this new feature in our efforts to continuously adapt the tool to meet new challenges as the world of work changes around us," he added.

The Return to Workplace mobile solution includes sentiment and availability surveys, vaccine status surveys, health attestation, and contact tracing capabilities. Since ADP's launch of the mobile solution last summer, more than 3,100 employers have utilized the app, with approximately 2.5 million surveys completed by workers.

ADP offers the ADP Return to Workplace mobile solution as complimentary and already included with most ADP solutions. These new features join ADP's existing portfolio of broad and deep solutions – from compliance and safety to scheduling and engagement – to help businesses adapt to the shifting world of work and digitize their workforce operations.

The app's key features include:

  • Vaccine Status: This feature enables employees to input their vaccination dates and proof of vaccination, providing employers with a pulse on how their workforce is trending in terms of vaccination rates.
  • Testing Results: This new functionality helps employers monitor the current testing status for their employees by prompting employees to enter their latest test dates and results. 
  • Availability and Sentiment Surveys: These short surveys are designed to gauge employee sentiment about coming back to the workplace, determine employee availability, and create informed in-office schedules.   

ADP has also compiled a wealth of free information for employers in their new Return to Workplace Resource Hub, including legislative updates, helpful tools and templates, and more to help employers adapt.
