ADP Launches TotalSourcesm HR Outsourcing Solution for Small Businesses in Tennessee

Helps Reduce Complexities, Liabilities and Costs of Internal Human Resource Management, So Businesses Can Focus on What They do Best

NASHVILLE, TN and ROSELAND, N.J., January 10, 2012 – As small business owners struggle with the challenge of evolving regulatory compliance and health care reform requirements, ADP®, a leading provider of human resource outsourcing, payroll services, tax and compliance services, benefits administration and integrated computing solutions for vehicle dealers, today announced the launch of its TotalSourcesm solution for small businesses in Tennessee.  ADP TotalSource simplifies human resources management for small- to mid-sized businesses with an integrated service offering that incorporates payroll services, benefits administration, risk management, tax and compliance functions.

ADP TotalSource helps mitigate risk for small- to mid-sized businesses by serving as a Professional Employer Organization (PEO).  PEOs provide integrated services through a co-employment model where the client company continues to direct employees’ day-to-day, job-related duties, while the PEO contractually assumes certain HR-related rights, responsibilities and risks and becomes the “employer of record” on an employee’s W-2.

“Small business owners can become easily overwhelmed as they struggle to comply with the complexities of human resource management—especially recognizing that 45 percent of employers undergo a state or federal payroll audit at least once a year according to a recent survey,” said Dave Imbrogno, ADP TotalSource’s senior vice president of service and operations.  “Ideally, owners that focus on servicing clients, developing employees and growing their business are best equipped to keep ahead of the competition, especially in this challenging economy. Engaging a PEO is an attractive and compelling solution that allows business owners to minimize risk while maintaining a competitive edge,” Imbrogno added.

Citing the findings of research recently published by ADP TotalSource and conducted by the ADP Research Institute, a specialized group within ADP, entitled “Relieving the Pressure: The PEO Approach to Navigating Compliance and Gaining a Competitive Advantage, Imbrogno said, “Our new research shows that more than half of today’s companies surveyed lack confidence in their ability to keep pace with complex, ever-changing HR regulations.  The majority of companies surveyed believe the HR compliance burden will only grow more difficult with time.  Recognizing that 97 percent of businesses in Tennessee are small firms, we are confident ADP TotalSource will bring relevant and timely solutions to area businesses,” he adds. 

Katherine E. Hudson, human resource director of Nashville-based CARS RECON, INC., comments that ADP TotalSource helps her focus on employees, not paperwork.  “ADP TotalSource enables me to offer benefits and provide management training that I could not otherwise provide our employees,” Hudson says.  “This allows me to focus on our people, not the day-to-day administrative chores that used to consume my time,” she adds.

ADP TotalSource’s office is located at 810 Royal Parkway in Nashville.
