ADP TotalSourcesm Helps Chicago Small Businesses Grow

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

CHICAGO AND ROSELAND, N.J., January 31, 2012 – Small businesses in Chicago that have been partnering with ADP TotalSourcesm have been able to more effectively control the costs, complexities and administrative burdens of human resources management.  Serving Chicago businesses since 1996, 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.

“ADP TotalSource has been instrumental in helping us navigate the human resource complexities associated with rapid growth,” said Kevin Price, vice president of finance for Chicago-based Trunk Club. “We have onboarded over 70 salaried, commissioned, hourly, and part-time employees over our one-and-one-half year partnership with TotalSource. We have achieved this scale without having an internal human resource employee on our staff, and have done so without a glitch. ADP TotalSource’s responsive, helpful, informed associates consistently go out of their way to make things easier for me and our rapidly growing company,” Price added.

Neli Vazquez-Rowland, President of A Safe Haven Foundation, based in Chicago, says that TotalSource has helped her organization provide exceptional benefits to its employees. “ADP has been an incredible partner to us. As we grow our services of helping the homeless return to self-sufficiency at A Safe Haven Foundation, it is nice to have a partner we can depend on who helps us take care of our staff,” Vazquez-Rowland said.  “We believe that our staff deserves the best in benefits and services that we can give them because they are worth it, and ADP provides just that.”

“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 ADP TotalSource’s West Central Region General Manager Maria Black.  “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,” Black 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.
