ADP TotalSource® Helps Houston Small Businesses Grow

HR Outsourcing Solution Allows Businesses to Reduce Costs and Administrative Burdens so They Can Focus on What They Do Best

HOUSTON AND ROSELAND, N.J., Feb. 22, 2012 – Small businesses in Houston that have been partnering with ADP TotalSource® have been able to more effectively control the costs, complexities and administrative burdens of human resources management. Serving Houston-area businesses since 2002, and with a growing client base, ADP TotalSource delivers an integrated service offering that incorporates payroll, benefits administration, risk management, tax and compliance functions.

Serving nearly 400,000 small business clients, ADP® is a leading provider of human resources outsourcing, payroll services, benefits administration and integrated computing solutions for vehicle dealers. 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 as the “employer of record” on an employee’s W-2.

“Lapolla is a young company, but we’re experiencing aggressive growth,” said Doug Kramer, President and CEO of Lapolla Industries, Inc., a Houston-based manufacturer of spray foam systems and specialty coatings. “ADP TotalSource provides us with the human resources know-how not commonly found in an emerging company. Because we’re growing so rapidly, it’s important that we have the expertise of a partner like TotalSource to free up our company resources. This allows me to focus on the more critical strategies and drivers of my company’s growth,” Kramer added.

Angiela Zielinski, CEO of the nonprofit AIDS Foundation Houston, said: “ADP TotalSource provides consistent and reliable support to our small HR team. We appreciate the wealth of resources available to us. TotalSource not only provides us with training, payroll, and experts to help us understand changes in legislation, but we also don’t have to worry about risk management, benefits negotiation and administration, or creating our HR policies and procedures. TotalSource does all of that for us. Our relationship with TotalSource brings great value to our organization.”

“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 audit at least once a year,” said Dave Imbrogno, ADP TotalSource’s senior vice president of service and operations. “Ideally, owners who 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.

A part of ADP’s Employer Services Division, ADP TotalSource is the nation’s largest PEO, operating more than 50 offices in 24 states, and serving more than 8,900 client companies with more than 251,000 worksite employees. Businesses taking advantage of ADP’s PEO services are assigned an experienced TotalSource Human Resource Business Partner who leads a team of experts drawn from human resource management, employee benefits, payroll services, risk management and regulatory compliance.
