Talent Acquisition and Retention

Great companies are built by great people. Our talent strategy aims at attracting and retaining ambitious, passionate and overall top talent to continue to grow our diverse and unique culture. The wide range of benefits, flexible work options and health and wellness programs we offer contribute to an environment where all our associates add to our success and live their best life.

At ADP since 1988

Sue, Technical Editor, New Jersey
“My amazing journey at ADP began 32 years ago! Since then, I’ve held five positions in five different organizations, including IT, Marketing, and Sales, and earned a bachelor’s degree and two certifications. ADP offers so much in terms of growth and encourages success in all forms. They hire and retain the best associates, which in turn creates the great work environment we’ve come to know. You can always expect to feel respected, valued, and important here.”

Great companies are made by great people

Our collaborative culture, leadership that provides purpose, and the direction and inspiration of our associates, who live and breathe our ADP values, allow us to be an employer of choice year after year. With just shy of 21,000 new associates globally, 2019 was our biggest hiring volume year yet. During FY 2020, ADP Associates in the U.S. had an average tenure of 7 years, well above the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics average of 4.1 years.

Internship programs

To fill our pipeline with the best and brightest young talent, we have internship programs enterprise-wide globally. By immersing students into ADP’s culture, we can identify mutual fits with an end goal of full-time employment after graduation. In the United States, we also travel to campuses across the country to meet students who are sharp, creative, driven and friendly. Find out more on our website.


Our associates receive a competitive benefits package, intended to help them enjoy physical, emotional and financial well-being and be productive members of their teams. While exact benefits vary by employee and region, they typically include health care coverage, a 401(k) plan with company matching contributions, free wellness services, tuition reimbursement, employee assistance programs and more. We particularly emphasize benefits that support our associates’ individual and family needs (parental leave, adoption/fertility benefits and programs to support caregivers). We constantly update our programs according to our associates’ needs. In 2019, we offered the following new or enhanced benefits:

  • Paid Parental Leave – We expanded benefits for US associates by an additional 2 weeks providing mothers and fathers up to 4 weeks of paid parental leave. This is separate from traditional leave for mothers
  • Back-up Child Care and Adult Care – We introduced a program through Bright Horizons where an associate could receive up to 10 days of back-up care per year at centers for well children, or in-home care for well or mildly ill children and in-home adult and elder care
  • Student Loan Repayment Program – We offered a program through Tuition.io where eligible associates could receive a $50 contribution each month from ADP towards their own student loan debt or their child’s student loan debt, for up to 4 years

In addition, we expanded benefits eligibility to include same-sex and opposite-sex domestic partners for medical, dental, vision, Group Universal Life, Group Legal, Critical Illness and ADP’s Voluntary Wellness Program. So, although those benefits are not new, they are new to a portion of ADP’s population and their dependents.
