Corporate Social Responsibility
A Message from Carlos Rodriguez
President and CEO
One World. One ADP.
For more than 60 years, ADP has served as a trusted human resources, payroll and benefits partner to employers and automotive dealerships around the world. Our mission is to provide insightful solutions that drive value and success for our clients by allowing them to focus on their business.
Today, we serve approximately 570,000 companies, ranging from small, start-up businesses with a handful of employees to large, multinational companies with thousands of employees spanning the globe. From our humble beginnings as a local New Jersey business in 1949, we have expanded internationally to become one of the world’s largest business-to-business outsourcers with over 56,000 associates worldwide.
Each day, we play a vital role in connecting our client organizations with their employees. Our clients entrust us to help them more effectively manage, deploy, compensate and serve the human resource needs of their people, while also handling and protecting their most sensitive data. With this trust comes great responsibility – a responsibility we take very seriously.
As a global corporate citizen, ADP also recognizes its responsibility to give back to and generate a lasting, positive impact upon the communities in which we work and live. This commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR) is a core pillar of ADP’s Mission, Vision and Values, and encompasses everything from philanthropy, volunteerism and environmental stewardship to diversity, corporate governance, ethics, data privacy and data security.
ADP strives to positively impact the world and its people through corporate-sponsored philanthropic initiatives such as the ADP Foundation, and by actively working with other organizations who share our interests in these areas. We also encourage and support our associates’ desire to engage in national and local philanthropic and volunteer accomplishments around the world. This commitment to giving back can be witnessed at every level of our organization and in every country in which we operate.
I am proud to share that today our global ADP associates are involved in more than 1,500 CSR initiatives around the world, contributing tens of thousands of hours of their time each year to local charitable organizations, educational programs, community relief initiatives and many other noble efforts touching countless lives in meaningful ways. This is even more gratifying because much of this activity is locally, organically and associate-driven.
At ADP, we see business success and the needs of citizens and communities as inextricably linked – forces that must be in balance in order to drive and achieve forward progress. We also firmly believe that business can and should have a positive impact on the world. That’s why we constantly strive to embed our CSR principles and practices into everything we do. Above all, we’re excited about the future and are committed to making positive contributions – today and tomorrow – that will benefit the world in which we live and future generations alike.
If you have ideas or suggestions regarding ADP’s corporate social responsibility efforts, I would love to hear them.
