BLACK ENTERPRISE Names ADP to “50 Best Companies for Diversity” List and Honors ADP Executive as One of “300 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America”

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

As chief diversity and corporate social responsibility officer at ADP, I’m proud to announce two fantastic honors from BLACK ENTERPRISE® magazine around our diversity efforts. My colleague Debbie Dyson, president of National Account Services and Client Experience at ADP, was recently named one of the magazine’s “300 Most Powerful Executives in Corporate America,” and ADP was just recognized as one of the “50 Best Companies for Diversity“ for the second straight year. In today’s tight labor market, it’s vital that organizations develop a culture and execute policies that promote inclusion of every race, gender and ethnicity within their workforces, senior management ranks, corporate boards, and supplier pools. Companies that aren’t focused on diversity are severely limiting their access to skilled talent. The best talent out there comes in all shapes, sizes and colors. It’s this diverse talent pool that brings diverse perspectives which drives innovation. Companies also need to reflect the markets they serve and understand the diverse consumer base that buys their products and services. If your workforce...

ADP® Chief Financial Officer, Jan Siegmund, has been honored as one of the top ten 2017 OUTstanding Leading LGBT+ Executives, a list presented by the Financial Times®. The ranking recognizes Jan’s achievements in ensuring LGBT inclusion both within the workplace and externally.

In 2006, he founded ADP Pride, ADP’s LGBT+ business resource group and currently serves as executive sponsor. ADP Pride focuses on inclusion and has specific ally programming for straight allies, which has made it the fastest growing business resource group at ADP.

ADP Signs on to CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Having recently seen so many ADP associates join in celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month and National Coming Out Day, I’m proud to say that ADP has truly made diversity and inclusion a cornerstone of our business and corporate culture. It’s built into our teams, our products and our supply chain – both because it helps us better serve our clients and aligns with our values. That’s why our CEO, Carlos Rodriguez, joined a coalition of 270 CEOs committing themselves and the organizations they lead to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. In signing on to the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™, ADP committed to continue cultivating a workplace that supports open dialogue on complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion. We committed to implement and expand unconscious bias education. And, we committed to share best known – and unsuccessful – actions with other companies to learn from each other and tackle diversity and inclusion challenges facing workplaces across the country together. We recognize that joining...

5 Ways for Employers to Put Diversity and Inclusion into Action

5 Ways for Employers to Put Diversity and Inclusion into Action

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Finding and keeping good people has never been easy, but as the labor market continues to tighten, it’s certainly not getting any easier. As we saw in the Q1 2017 ADP Workforce Vitality Report® and explained in USA Today, people can switch jobs more easily than ever, placing added pressure on employers to tune into workforce demands beyond salary and benefits. Current trends indicate that job searchers are choosing employers based on who they are as an organization and what they stand for, including diversity and inclusion efforts, corporate social responsibility, career mentorship and other dimensions that weren’t always considered fundamental to doing business. In other words, people want to work for organizations that do more than just grow profits. Over the past few years, businesses have placed a particular emphasis on formalizing diversity and inclusion (D&I) as part of their business practices. In fact, according to a recent study by Deloitte, D&I is now a CEO-level issue – in 2017, the number of executives who cited inclusion as...

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

ADP’s commitment to diversity is foundational to our talent strategy and one of the many things that makes ADP a great place to work. Celebrating our differences not only fosters an inclusive work environment where each person has the opportunity to make a positive impact, but it also enables us to better connect with our clients across the diverse markets we serve. I’m proud to share that ADP was recently named to the Black Enterprise 50 Best Companies for Diversity List for our commitment to diversity in four key areas: our board of directors, employee base, senior management and supplier diversity.
