>Diversity Mission: ADP’s aim is to have an inclusive workplace that values each individual and enables associates to reach their full potential. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, the diverse experiences, perspectives, ideas and backgrounds of our associates help us deliver great service to our clients and more importantly helps us be our best.

ADP has executive, regional and local diversity councils as well as women’s leadership initiatives. It also has strong relationships with universities and national professional organizations known for their diverse populations and memberships. ADP promotes an inclusive work environment with programs that include domestic partner benefits, volunteerism, mentoring and cultural awareness programs. “For ADP, diversity is much more than ensuring equal employment opportunity. Great companies act on their initiatives, take risks, and set an example at all times,” the company’s submission stated. “Our diversity and inclusion efforts support this way of thinking, because we continually challenge ourselves to make sure we are doing our best every day when it comes to inclusion of everyone.”
