Nick, UX Design, Lifion by ADP

“You’re not pigeonholed into the role or responsibilities that you might find in more traditional places. So that means there is tons of opportunity to work on cool things. If you have a great idea, you speak up, you get to do it, and suddenly you own it. And that’s really cool.”

JAMES: My name is James. I am a project manager here at ADP.
[DESCRIPTION]
Text: What convinced you to join ADP?
[SPEECH]
What convinced me to join ADP was, as I was going through the interview process and speaking with different members of the leadership team, I was able to really identify that they were looking for future leaders within the company. They were looking for individuals that not only had leadership traits but also knew that there was a runway for them to move forward through and develop into.

[SPEECH]
Something that I love about working here is that ADP has provided an amazing flexible working atmosphere. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, I come to the New Jersey office. And then Thursdays and Fridays, I go to the New York office. And it's fantastic. And then there's times when things come up, when emergencies happen, which happens with everyone, I'm able to work from home. So it's absolutely fantastic how flexible ADP has been with me and also with others.

Coming from a former military career, team orientation is very important to me. And not only is this a very dynamic and fast-paced environment, but the team approach with everything that we do here is very solid and very strong, which is a great atmosphere to work in.

[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION]
Text: What attracted you to join ADP?
[SPEECH: LIZZIE]
When I graduated college, I was looking for companies that had a great sales training program. And I knew ADP was one of them. So I came across a sales apprentice job, and I was able to work alongside of top producers in my region. And I learned the ins and outs of the job through them.
[SPEECH: JUSTIN]
My goal was to look for a career path, looking for some place where I was able to grow in the company. Money was actually tertiary. It wasn't something primary to me. I was just looking for an opportunity to grow, looking for opportunity to have a career path.
[SPEECH: KELSEY]
I was fresh out of college. And I was actually introduced from a friend that was already working at ADP, which I've grown to realize that's how a lot of our associates get on board with ADP is because we get referred by internal partners and internal people that have been here and been very happy with the company.
[SPEECH: MICHAEL]
The reputation ADP has, knowing the company itself, and what I've heard from people that I know worked here-- just between giving you that freedom to have that work life balance that I always wanted, but never could have in the industry that I was in.
[SPEECH: BRANDON]
I was working for a company that would give me benefits that I would be obviously looking for to keep me at the company for a while. So when I ran across ADP, I had a couple friends that worked for ADP. And they let me know how great a company it was. So I figured, you know, what's the harm in applying?
[SPEECH: ALISON]
The competitive aspect about how the flexibility, and schedules, and really just the positive work environment, and camaraderie that everyone has—and that really sparked my interest in working in the company.

ADP Presents: The Art of Better.

[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION: Martha Bird speaks. ]
No matter where you are and no matter what time period you're from, we value being part of a community. We want to be close to friends and family. We seek meaning for ourselves as individuals, where we can be acknowledged and recognized.
[DESCRIPTION: Martha walks through an office. ]
My name is Martha Bird. I'm a cultural anthropologist. And I worked for ADP.
[DESCRIPTION: Exterior view of ADP headquarters. ]
I look for patterns. I study beliefs, routines, aspirations, and behaviors to inform the digital tools we're building at ADP.
[DESCRIPTION: Martha views papers under lamplight]
I often look at new technologies in reference to what is the human need behind that.
[DESCRIPTION: Martha stands in a server room. ]
You have the assembly line. You can imagine in the '50s, people had to work at a stationary terminal. And then you get into the PC in the '80s. And now you have the mobile phone. And people can kind of work anywhere.
ADP as a company is really aware of the importance of having a human perspective on technology. And that's one of the reasons I'm here, is to try to surface what it is that people actually need in the tools that they use.
[DESCRIPTION: Martha converses with a colleague in a cubicle. ]
I spend a lot of time deeply hanging out with people. I do a lot of asking questions that seem straightforward to people who are insiders.
[DESCRIPTION: Martha works with a colleague. ]
I'm able to bring together human insights and observations that, when applied, can impact one in six workers in the US.
[DESCRIPTION: Various floors of the office are viewed. ]
When employees work on teams where they feel that they are respected, they have a tendency to produce more. So I think companies understand that in order to create greater productivity, you have to really work on some of these levers of engagement.
At ADP, I feel really supported on a number of levels. I think the company has used all of the factors that conspire to actually make a more productive workforce. I have a great team that respects my opinion. It's about being authentic. It's about being open to diversity and different perspectives. I get to wake up every day and do exactly what I love doing, just really spending time with people, understanding people. It's about tending to other people and tending to yourself.

Text: Scott, VP, Finance Strategy
[SPEECH]
Hi, I'm Scott. I'm a VP in Finance Strategy here at ADP. I've been here for two years.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION]
Text: What is your favorite part of your role?
[SPEECH]
My favorite thing about working here is just the opportunity. And so in my current role-- it's a fairly new role and I get to shape what it is. I get this brand new opportunity to create the finance strategy of the company. And so having that blank sheet of paper and filling it in with what the finance strategy might look like, that's phenomenally exciting.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION]
Text: Why do you stay @ ADP?
[SPEECH]
The reason I stay at ADP and the reason I see a future in ADP is just the career progression. And so one of the things I've found in ADP is you've got people with significant tenure, 20, 25 years of tenure. But within that 25 years, they’ve done 6, 8, 10 different jobs. And so career mobility is big at ADP. And in other companies, as people have moved sideways, it's viewed as a bad thing that you've moved sideways. Here, it's encouraged to get exposure, too. So for myself, I was in the field. And now I'm being exposed to corporate. And then obviously, global is another thing for me to get exposure to. So that's really why I stayed.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION]
Text: What would you tell someone looking to apply to ADP?
[SPEECH]
So to somebody looking outside into ADP, what they really need to know is it's not a payroll company. And I definitely had that perception when I came in. And it's only really once you get inside it that you realize there's so many different facets to ADP. And it wasn't until I really dug into the role and the company that I realized that it was more than payroll. It was a pretty sophisticated technology company that was global in reach.
