Community Engagement

Responsibility to the world around us is at the heart of our business. We believe that our company is only as strong as the communities in which we operate. By elevating our communities, we support critical causes and provide a foundation for our business to continue thriving.

Diverse Markets

Understanding, supporting and partnering with the diverse communities and markets we serve is fundamental to our corporate social responsibility mission. With these efforts and partnerships we drive both ADP’s brand image through the solutions we provide, as well as build strategic partnerships to investigate and harness new opportunities. We partner with over 1,000 organizations that service, support and/or educate the business owners and founders within various under-represented groups, including: Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Native American/Indigenous, Women, LGBTQ+, Veteran and Disabled. We have impacted over 4,000 individual diverse-owned businesses with our products and services. In addition, we are committed to creating a workforce that is representative of the communities we serve and that our increasingly diverse clientele can identify with.

Supplier Diversity

Diverse suppliers bring competition, diversity of thought and innovation to ADP’s supply chain. Supplier diversity is an integral part of ADPs commitment to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion. Just as our workforce should reflect our client base, so should our supply chain.

The primary goal of ADP’s U.S.-focused Supplier Diversity Program is to proactively identify, build relationships with and purchase goods and services from qualified diverse enterprises. We strive to partner with businesses that reflect the local and global markets we serve, while obtaining the highest level of quality goods and services for our clients.

Our Supplier Diversity Program supports:

  • Minority-owned Business Enterprise (MBE)
    • Hispanic
    • African American
    • Asian
    • Native American
  • Women-owned Business Enterprise (WBE)
  • Veteran-owned Business Enterprise (VBE)
  • Service-Disabled Veteran-owned Business Enterprise (SDVOBE)
  • LGBT+-owned Business Enterprise (LGBTBE)
  • Disability-owned Business Enterprise (DOBE)
  • Small Business Enterprise (SBE)

In FY 2023, ADP sponsored its inaugural supplier diversity certification series and 84 underrepresented small businesses in the U.S. were trained on how to become certified as minority-/veteran-owned businesses. This certification allows these businesses to qualify for supporting programs provided by local governments and private organizations. Upcoming webinars can be found on ADPs supplier diversity page.

ADP's Supplier Diversity Program continues to grow with proven success. Our FY 2023 achievements include:

  • Overall FY 2023 diverse spend total: $426.9M
  • Diverse spend increased 5% compared to FY 2022
  • Diverse suppliers account for 13% of sourceable spend
  • $1.7M in savings attributed to using diverse suppliers
  • Veteran owned business spend increased by 74%

Many small businesses are diverse businesses — some of which are our clients. Supplier mentorship at ADP features one-on-one work, group discussions and summits to help new and existing suppliers improve their business acumen, especially with large corporations.

To help ensure that our bidding opportunities reach eligible diverse business enterprises, ADP works in conjunction with the following organizations and councils:

  • National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
  • National Veteran Business Development Council (NVBDC)
  • Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
  • The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)
  • Disability: IN

During calendar year 2023, ADP Associates in the U.S. volunteered over 38,000 hours.


The ADP Foundation is core to our corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives. It magnifies the impact of associate giving to causes that align with our values and CSR focus areas.

Services provided by the Foundation include:

  • Oversight of ADP Cares, our global associate hardship fund
  • Donation processing and matching program
  • Review/approval of grant requests for charitable organizations
  • Fundraising for eligible charitable organizations
  • Henry Taub Memorial Scholarship Program for associates’ dependents
  • Facilitation of associate volunteer program
Associate Giving

ADP’s myGiving online tool allows associates to donate to their choice of thousands of eligible charitable organizations. ADP associates in the U.S. can also participate in our Matching Gift Program, in which donations to eligible charities are matched at 100%, up to $5,000 per associate per calendar year. Corporate Officers, including our Executive Committee members, and our Board of Directors are eligible to up to a $20,000 annual match, while executive level leaders are matched up to $10,000 for their donations. In calendar 2023, associate donations in the U.S., including ADP Foundation match, were approximately $12 million, a 20% increase over calendar 2022.

During 2023, the ADP Foundation generously offered an increased match rate of 200% on Giving Tuesday to its associates, resulting in a nearly 65% increase in donations compared to Giving Tuesday 2022, benefiting more than 2,500 charities.

Associate Volunteerism

Since ADP was founded in 1949, giving back to our communities has been a core company value. To demonstrate that commitment, ADP and the ADP Foundation are proud to amplify our impact by offering volunteer programs to our associates. Our U.S. Volunteer Paid Time Off program provides associates with 8 hours of paid time off from work to volunteer in their community, available in hourly increments. During calendar 2023, ADP Associates volunteered over 38,000 hours as part of this program, representing a 37% increase compared to calendar 2022. In addition, ADP offers a Volunteer Rewards program where the ADP Foundation will make a $10 donation to eligible charities for each hour that an associate volunteers outside of regular work hours. We have similar associate volunteer programs outside of the U.S.
