This month, ADP was recognized for excellence and leadership in diversity, ranking #21 on the 2016 DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list.
ADP has a deep commitment to sustaining and celebrating our inclusive culture and we offer a variety of programs to foster this, such as Local Engagement & Diversity Committees that give our associates the opportunity to volunteer in their communities. We also strategically partner with external organizations that enable ADP to provide associates with targeted career development opportunities.
One of the keys to our strategy is Business Resource Groups (BRGs). BRGs are company-sponsored and voluntary associations of people with common interests (e.g., groups to support minorities, women, military and other interests). For example, May happens to be Asian-American Pacific Islander Heritage month. Our BRG, A.S.I.A (Aspiring Success in Associates), offers inclusive ways for all associates to learn more about the various cultural norms that make up our Asian-American and Pacific Islander community.
These BRGs align to broader business initiatives, such as increasing the pipeline of women in tech, hiring more veterans, and making products LGBT friendly. Associates benefit as well by enhancing personal and professional development, exposing associates to increased leadership opportunities, and offering networking opportunities.
Diversity is critical to building our talent pipeline and better serving our customers. We’re proud to be included in DiversityInc’s ranking and to share the success of our strategy.
