"Our purpose is simple: make the world a better place by unlocking the full potential of our people. We are a global company with local expertise and a deep appreciation for our most valuable investment – our people. ADP’s commitment to diversity and inclusion is central to how we leverage this investment. It begins at the top and is threaded throughout every part of our business. At the heart of work, people create the ecosystem of ideas that allows business to grow even as the global marketplace shifts. People, by definition, are diverse and unique yet need a culture that’s inclusive in order to thrive. Diversity and inclusion are distinctive though interconnected. Diversity is often measured by demographics, but the numbers tell only one part of this story. Each person offers unique value that – influenced by variations in age, gender, race, culture and other differences – builds a launching pad for revolutionary thoughts. This diverse thinking allows the “what-ifs” to transform into the breakthroughs that inspire and improve the world of work. For its part, inclusion enables diversity to thrive. It creates fertile ground that embraces differences and integrates them into effective business strategies. You can hire in diversity, but without an inclusive culture, it will not flourish. At ADP, we believe diversity and inclusion are not only good for business, they are also necessary for long-term business success. That means weaving diversity and inclusion into the fabric of who we are, what we do and how we do it."
