ADP TotalSource® Helps Boston Small Businesses Grow

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

ROSELAND, N.J., and BOSTON, February 29, 2012 – Small businesses in the Boston area 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 Boston-area businesses since 1999, 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 servicesbenefits 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.

Alan Mitter-Burke, Human Resources Director of Boston-based PHT Corporation, said ADP TotalSource helps his organization use its resources most effectively.  “As we have grown, the package of ADP TotalSource resources has enabled us to minimize our HR staff and keep it focused on strategic and local activities,” he said. “We have a dedicated HR Business Partner, which is really like having a full-time human resources consultant on our team.”

Phil Doucette, chief financial officer of Fishman Transducers, Inc., a Massachusetts-based manufacturer of acoustic amplifiers and related musical equipment, said, “Our HR administration was cumbersome, and we needed to streamline it without spending a fortune.  ADP TotalSource has a cadre of specialists that I can call on for anything—compliance, workers’ compensation, safety, benefits—you name it.” Doucette added: “For the first time, I have confidence in the accuracy and timeliness of our employee records. Our health-care costs have gone down, and we’ve been able to put the savings right back into R&D for our company. ADP TotalSource helps us make better business decisions.”

“Small business owners can become easily overwhelmed as they struggle to comply with the complexities of human resource management. Adding to that challenge is the fact that 45 percent of employers undergo a state or federal audit at least once a year,” said ADP TotalSource’s Northeast Region General Manager Brian Michaud. “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 helps business owners minimize risk while maintaining a competitive edge,” added Michaud.

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.
