Headquartered in Richardson, Texas, Golden Tree Restaurants is a thriving restaurant group with nine subsidiary restaurant brands and franchises located all over the U.S. With a workforce spread across the country, Golden Tree struggled to efficiently manage their HR and payroll processes, which were largely manual and paper-based.

We are incredibly proud and grateful for the role ADP has played in our journey, and it is our collective commitment to excellence that has truly allowed Golden Tree to thrive amidst challenges and re-imagine our employee experience. […] Our journey with ADP is far from over, but it’s clear that this partnership has been a key ingredient in our recipe for success.

  • Payroll process was lengthy and dependent on manual entry, creating an urgent need for modernization
  • Paper-based processes necessitated a move toward a digital, paperless system, placing greater control in the hands of store managers
  • No mechanism for employees to manage their HR and payroll information on their own or on the go

How ADP Helped

  • Using ADP WorkFroce Now they reduced payroll processing time from 24 hours to just four hours
  • With payroll previews they are now able to proactively address 95% of potential issues before they impact payroll processing
  • ADP’s mobile self-service solution has been a real game-changer for Golden Tree employees, empowering them with instant access to their personal data, pay statements and financial tools like Wisely cards directly from their mobile device
