Diversity

The more inclusive, the better.

Different ideas.

Equally valued.

At ADP, we believe the best ideas thrive in an inclusive environment that values diverse perspectives. That’s why we made it the cornerstone of our one-of-a-kind culture.

Committed to a fast-changing world.

Staying ahead of the changing world of work means understanding what different businesses (and their employees) want and need to grow and be successful. The same goes for our own company and the things that matter to you. Like benefits that fit individual needs, and respect for multiculturalism and supplier diversity. We also support global and community programs that empower transitioning military veterans, young people and people with diverse abilities.

Building strong partnerships.

We sponsor a number of professional organizations that help us attract and develop diverse talent in all areas of our business. Some of our partnerships:

Not just talk. Action.

Our senior leadership team reflects the diversity of our workforce and the global marketplace we serve. We are firmly focused on ensuring that all great talent thrives at ADP and contributes to our continued success.

In support of working mothers

Women make up more than 50 percent of our workforce at ADP. Our commitment provides an environment that empowers working mothers to advance and succeed through mentoring, networking opportunities, workplace flexibility, and an inclusive culture.

ADP is proud to have been named to the “Working Mother 100 Best Companies” list numerous times. We recognize the challenges families face in managing work life balance and value our associates’ priorities.

Cycle for the Cause:
150 riders, 4 days, 1 cause

We put our helmets on and headed out on the 275-mile Ride – from Boston to New York City – to raise money and awareness in the fight to end HIV/AIDS.

This epic journey brought us to 20 different cities, putting our months of training to the test two years in a row. It wasn’t easy, but with ADP as an Endurance Sponsor for the Ride, we raised more than $900,000 over the last two years. Cycle for the Cause, The Northeast AIDS Ride, is an annual event that Team ADP proudly supports in body, mind and spirit.

No glass ceilings here.

Our annual Women in Leadership events bring together female executives from ADP offices around the world. The multi-day forum includes prominent speakers on the topics of leadership, personal development and social responsibility.

Food for the mind and soul: That’s how we do it here.

I didn't know about BRGs originally. I didn't know about iWIN. But when someone said, hey, there's an iWIN chapter we're going to try to launch in Roseland. Do you want to be part of that? It was like, what's this?
What's this about? And what's in it for me, kind of thing. But what was interesting from a personal professional is that what's in it for me is professional growth. And what's in it for me personally is being able to help and mentor and support other junior leaders coming on board, and also a middle leadership level and growing.
So it's been a great opportunity to network and meet women-- both senior leadership, because we get access and privy to the Women in Leadership group, which is the senior professional group, and getting access to them and networking with them. And also then mentoring and supporting the women who want to grow and are new to the professional life. So it's been really quite a strong thing.
And also, the leadership team itself-- the four or five of us that worked together over the two years to build this chapter-- it was an unexpectedly great team. We got along really well. So it's been a good experience.

Rita Mitjans Discusses Diversity and Inclusion at ADP

[MUSIC PLAYING]
[DESCRIPTION]
Logo: ADP, Always Designing for People
Text: Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity and Social Responsibility Officer, Emeritus
[SPEECH]
RITA MITJANS: Workplace diversity for a company like ADP is so critical. When you think about the business that we're in, we're in the people and talent business. I can't imagine having a conversation with any leader about the effectiveness of their talent and the ability to attract the kind of talent we want and need to grow the business without having a conversation about diversity in that same sentence, because, by definition, talent is diverse.
And if we want to have the best talent at ADP and retain that best talent, we need to have a culture that really is committed to diversity and inclusion, because I always like to say, you can hire diversity. It's easy to do. What's not easy to do is to retain it.
And that's really about inclusion. That's really about having a culture where everyone feels like they're valued and where their contributions count. And for ADP, that's a critical part of our talent strategy. It's also a critical part of the kind of company, quite frankly, we want to be. And each person counts is one of our core values. And I think that workplace diversity is very aligned with that particular value.

We've made some wonderful progress with diversity inclusion over the last four years as a company. I can tell you that one of our goals was to increase the representation of women in executive leadership roles, as well as the representation of our people of color in leadership roles. And we have made phenomenal progress.
In the last four years, we have increased the percentage of women by seven points and the percentage of people of color by five points. For a company of our size, that is amazing progress. And when I talk to my peers and others in the industry about sort of comparability—how likely is it that other companies are moving these kinds of numbers in this direction—it's unheard of. And I would say that that is because our senior leadership and our leaders, in general, understand the value of this.
And what I love about the diversity inclusion strategy here at ADP—that it's both leader-driven, but also associate-driven, because we have our business resource groups, which are all led by associates. And so our associates are very much a part of driving our progress.

Text: Joe, User Experience Strategist, Member of Generations BRG
[SPEECH: JOE]
Generations is a business resource group created here in ADP. And what Generations does, it brings people together. And I believe that the beginnings of Generations was for new employees, new associates here at ADP to get them acclimated, give them some insights. A lot of that has to do with there's these mentorships that are built in, there's a lot of networking. Also a talk series to give really new associates and people who have been here for a long time actually, more insights than they would normally have.

Text: Eslin, Director, Product Management, Member of iWIN BRG
[SPEECH: ESLIN]
So iWIN is the International Women's Inclusion Network. Its main focus is really to help merge that aspect of the younger professionals with the more senior professionals and really giving them a clear place to network and grow and develop their skills, in order to grow. I mean, women are a minority leadership inside most corporations. ADP recognizes that value and says, how do we give them avenues to grow. And IWIN's a great place for them to grow and develop.
