Risk and strategy oversight

Our Board of Directors oversees the Company’s enterprise risk assessment and integrated risk management activities. These are designed to identify, prioritize, assess, monitor and mitigate various risks facing the Company, including risks related to the execution of the Company’s operational and financial strategy. Our directors also take an active role in the oversight of the Company’s strategy at both the Board and Committee level, while management teams are responsible for executing our business strategy.

ESG governance

Our Board of Directors is directly focused on the long-term sustainability of our business. To support this goal, the Nominating/Corporate Governance Committee oversees the Company’s environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies and programs. The Committee receives routine updates from ADP’s Chief Diversity and Talent Officer (CDTO), and reports back on these matters to the Board. This arrangement allows our Board to engage with the Company more freely and across a broad range of ESG focus areas. Our Board has complete and open access to our CDTO, who spearheads our ESG Steering Committee to lead ADP’s ESG efforts. This Steering Committee is comprised of senior leaders at ADP and their meetings occur on a quarterly basis to more effectively communicate and manage sustainability-related issues affecting the Company, now and into the future.

Open dialogue through continuous direct engagement

We firmly believe that creating sustainable, long-term value hinges on strong governance practices and transparent dialogue with stockholders through continuous direct engagement. We value stakeholder feedback as we strive to deliver strong financial performance and sustained value creation for our investors, associates, partners and community members. What we learn from these conversations is regularly shared with our Board of Directors and incorporated into our disclosures, plans and practices wherever appropriate.
