We’re One of the First Certified Professional Employer Organizations in the United States. How Awesome is That?
By Brian Michaud, Senior Vice President, ADP TotalSource® It’s so satisfying when hard work and diligence pay off – especially when that resolve makes us an even more valuable partner for our clients. Today, ADP TotalSource® was named by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS®) as one of the first-ever Certified Professional Employer Organizations (CPEO). We’re thrilled to be among the first PEOs to receive this important certification from the IRS because the certification gives business owners confidence that a Professional Employer Organization (PEO) like ADP TotalSource has met specific standards set by the U.S. government. To qualify for IRS certification, we had to adhere to very specific bonding and independent financial-review requirements. We’ll also participate in ongoing reporting and record-keeping to maintain our status as a CPEO. All of this hard work is worth it if ADP TotalSource can continue to ensure our clients that they’re working with a trusted partner. It’s important to us that we provide our clients with top-notch services that adhere to the highest...Read More

The labor market is tightening, wages are on the rise, and while employers may have had the upper-hand in the past, a distinct shift is underway. Employees are now calling the shots. What does this mean for employers and how they attract, retain and engage talent? The ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) commissioned a new survey to find out. From the results, ADP® developed two papers, “Evolution of Work 2.0; The Me vs. We Mindset,” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market,” which found employees tend to concentrate on their work environment, look for meaning in their job, and want immediate advancement opportunities (the “me” mindset). Whereas, employers tend to focus on bigger picture areas like financial performance, reputation, and long-term career pathing (the “we” mindset). A strengthening economy opens doors According to the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report, job switching is at an all-time high with about 27 percent of U.S. workers changing jobs on an annual basis. The ADP National...Read More
