Our most valuable investment is our people
Diversity of any description brings innovation, which is essential for the business to move forward in an ever-changing world. A leadership team that has a well-balanced gender diversity brings a well-balanced perspective and way of thinking, which makes for better business decisions and business success. I am fully confident that we already have diversity in place at ADP UK, and we are committed to seeing that grow at a senior leadership level moving forward.
Annabel Jones, UK HR Director
For me, gender diversity is an extension of equality. Fundamentally, it is about being a fair organisation treating others with respect and dignity. Being a successful business is not about having one genius or a super smart elite group at the top - it is about harnessing the potential in the wider organisation and bringing it all together. If you do not have diverse leaders you cannot make it happen. You need different perspectives and experiences to create that environment. It's about harnessing talent and diversity to succeed and I truly believe that is the culture we have at ADP UK.
Jeff Phipps, UK General Manager
Diversity is not just about gender but social diversity as well. A culture of awareness and sensitivity brings different points of view together to help run a business, ADP does this very well. I feel supported and encouraged to be successful here.
Lorna Wake, UK CFO
ADP are a global company with local expertise and a deep appreciation for our most valuable investment – our people. Our 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. People, by definition, are diverse and unique yet need a culture that’s inclusive in order to thrive. Each person offers unique value that – influenced by variations in age, gender, race, culture and other differences – builds a launching pad for revolutionary thoughts. At ADP, we believe diversity and inclusion are not only good for business, they are also necessary for long-term business success.
