Brief: ADP Receives Top Rating in Human Rights Campaign’s 2014 Corporate Equality Index


ROSELAND, N.J.ADP, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) services, has been recognized as a top-rated employer by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization. This is the fifth consecutive year that ADP has received a 100 percent rating in HRC’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI). The HRC’s CEI annually rates large U.S. employers based on their policies and practices pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees. As in prior years, ADP was recognized by HRC as a top-rated employer for its diverse workforce and commitment to inclusion regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. To achieve a perfect score and the  distinction of being one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality,” companies must have fully-inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency, provide evidence of their commitment to equality publicly and exercise responsible citizenship. “The continued recognition from the HRC is a great proof-point that our policies for inclusion and diversity at ADP are being successfully implemented,” said Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, ADP. “We are committed to providing a workplace environment that is welcoming to all so we can attract the best available talent.”
