Why our clients choose ADP global payroll services

Watch our client video on how following a malware attack, Mondelez and the ADP teams had to go into Business Continuity Planning mode and worked on the best solution for each and every country.

It took the teams around three months to get every country back up, running and in a state of stability. ADP’s ability to grow with Mondelez and scale in countries where they operate was something Mondelez valued. This is what a successful partnership looks like.

“We decided to go with ADP because no other partner had us in mind. We are the same team, just with different email addresses”.
