Talent Acquisition and Retention

Great companies are built by great people. Our strengths-based culture, purpose driven leadership and inspiration of our associates who live and breathe our ADP values allow us to provide an agile, creative and collaborative workplace. Our talent strategy aims at attracting and retaining ambitious, passionate and overall top talent to continue to grow our diverse and unique culture.


To fill our pipeline with the best and brightest talent, we have established global internship programs enterprise-wide. By immersing students in ADP’s culture, we can identify mutual fits with an end goal of full-time employment after graduation. Internships are available both full-time and part-time and provide networking events, learning opportunities and mentoring relationships. 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. For example, in the U.S. we offer the following programs:

  • Fertility management: Participants in this program, which include members of ADP’s LGBTQ community and eligible single parents, receive personalized guidance and support to help them understand their fertility treatment options. This includes coverage for fertility medications, in vitro fertilizations and egg freezing, among others.
  • Adoption and surrogacy reimbursement program: Associates who are looking to grow their families through adoption or surrogacy can receive reimbursement towards qualifying costs of adopting a child or arranging a surrogate.
  • Back-up care program: Regular associates who work 20 hours or more per week can utilize our Back-Up Care Program when something unexpected disrupts their childcare routine. For a small co-pay, associates have access to 10 back-up care days each year, with high quality care provided by Bright Horizons.
  • Parental Leave: All regular associates who work at least 20 hours per week may be eligible for four weeks paid parental leave to be taken within six months of the date their child is born, adopted or placed into foster care.
  • On-demand tutoring: Formerly known as the Homework Connection, this program affords associates up to 5 hours of free tutoring services per month for their dependents. This tutoring is available for both younger and older children. We also offer support through the College Coach program for associates with children who are in high school and preparing for college.

Flexible work options

We empower our associates to create a solid work-life balance. We provide a comprehensive set of programs, practices, activities and resources to help associates choose productive and flexible work management solutions that are best for them, ADP and our clients. To this end, in March 2022, ADP rolled out a flexible work model to offer greater adaptability while preserving the ability to collaborate and leverage each other's knowledge and experience.

Safety, health and wellness

ADP has a long tradition of promoting health, wellness and safety; we embrace it as part of our corporate identity. Our aim is to provide a holistic approach to the needs of our associates by offering programs that are physically and mentally beneficial, help them pursue a healthy lifestyle and reduce absenteeism and lost time due to injuries.

Our health and safety efforts include:

  • A company-wide health and safety manual and website accessible 24/7
  • Safety education and training offered on our risk management website
  • Regular committee reviews of health and safety procedures
  • A wellness program that allows associates to earn points and rewards for completing various wellness activities

Associates have access to the following wellness programs:

  • Personal health checks
  • Nutrition and fitness expert visits offering free consultation and programs
  • Employee assistance programs
  • Free therapy sessions to associates who require counseling and mental health assistance
  • Year-round CSR program that allows associates to volunteer and donate to charitable causes close to their hearts
