New Data Connector Syncs ADP Workforce Now to Insight Lab

We’re excited to let you know that we’ve just released a new data connector that automatically syncs data from ADP Workforce Now into PayScale Insight Lab. This release empowers ADP Workforce Now users to get a consistent view of their workforce in Insight Lab at all times.

What’s in it for ADP Workforce Now + Insight Lab users?

Getting compensation right is critical for a multitude of reasons, including complying with employment laws, staying within budget and maintaining employee engagement. By keeping your workforce data current in your compensation management software, you will avoid errors when benchmarking positions and ensure that all pay increase decisions are based on rock solid data and consistent criteria. For example, if a higher performer hasn’t had a pay increase in the last 24 months, wouldn’t you want to know this information and take it into consideration when the time comes to allocate pay increases?

Having real-time access to employee information and their pay and pay history in one place can help you validate whether a pay increase is justified, so you can ward off internal equity issues and ensure you are consistently following your compensation plan.

The availability of data also impacts the level of flexibility you have in making changes to employees’ pay. If your organization reviews pay for all employees in the same cycle, you might get by with not having the latest real-time employee data in your compensation management software.

But, if your organization implements out-of-cycle pay increases or anniversary pay increases for employees, manually uploading HRIS data into your comp management software quickly becomes untenable. Can you imagine manually uploading the latest HRIS data into Insight Lab every time you make an out-of-cycle pay change?

Lastly, this data connector saves HR professionals hours of work during each pay increase cycle because it eliminates the need to log into multiple systems to get necessary data for making workforce decisions.

How to get started with the ADP-Insight Lab Data Connector

The new data connector requires a simple, one-time setup. Anyone can set this up; there is no coding required. Once set up, you have access to a 360-degree view of your workforce within Insight Lab. The API automatically syncs employee information from your ADP Workforce Now instance to your Insight Lab account. We promise to keep your data secure; PayScale Insight Lab is SOC II Certified.

“We don’t have a whole lot of employees in our HR organization and we don’t have a dedicated Total Rewards or Compensation Manager. Before the ADP API integration, it was tough; we’d have to reimport and reconfigure all of that information. Now we’re able to get the answer we need just by looking at the scenario. The connection makes it much cleaner.”
