At ADP, we always talk about how we can help enable “a more human resource.” Of course, this statement is intended to be the guidepost for how we interact with our clients day in and day out. Every part of that interaction is important, but one could argue that a client’s first impression of working with ADP is one of the most meaningful indicators of their future relationship with us – and that relationship most often starts with the ADP salesforce.
So naturally, ADP views our salesforce as an integral part of how we deliver value to every new prospect and client. Not only that, it makes being in sales at ADP a rewarding experience. Clients of all sizes want a company they can trust to take care of their people and deliver market-leading solutions, like the ones ADP is known for worldwide. That’s what our sales teams bring to the table. Today, I’m pleased to share that ADP was selected for inclusion in the ultimate “best place to work for sales” guide – Selling Power’s 50 Best Companies to Sell For – 2016. This is the 17th annual list of its kind published by the magazine, and its purpose is to highlight the best companies to sell for among the top sales forces in the United States, encompassing companies of all sizes. ADP’s inclusion acknowledges that it’s not only a great place to work, but also a great place to build a sales career.
In order to be considered, companies are evaluated on a variety of measures such as compensation packages, sales culture, onboarding and sales-enablement strategies, training processes and annual turnover. The list aims to recognize companies that are supportive of their sales staff, keeping them motivated by providing an excellent active selling culture and giving them the tools, trainings and solutions needed to be successful.
At ADP, sales is such a critical part of our organization, since our sales team is charged with not only managing current clients but attracting new business prospects. We pride ourselves on having a world-class sales team built on the unique talents and perspectives of our employees. With more than two decades of experience in sales and strategy myself, I know that our sales team makes it possible for us to provide the best solutions and services that our clients desire and require.
And we’re already working on doing more. As we celebrate this great accomplishment, ADP is running full speed ahead, identifying new opportunities to help our sales team foster growth and continued success, which in turn, helps enable us to better serve our clients. Sales is at the heart of our mission to make the workplace better for millions of workers across the hire-to-retire spectrum. Interested in taking a seat at the table? Careers at ADP
