ADP to Add 250 Jobs to its Workforce in Tucson

State and city officials join company executives at ribbon-cutting celebration at ADP's sales facility.

ADP (No. 21 on the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies list) is adding 250 positions to its Tucson workforce, bringing to 400 the number of ADP associates in Tucson and to nearly 2,000 the number of ADP associates who will be working in Arizona.


The 400 associates in Tucson will occupy 49,543 square feet on two floors of the company's signature facility at 5451 East Williams Blvd.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild and Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, joined company executives and associates during a ribbon-cutting celebration in Tucson earlier today.

"I'm delighted that ADP has chosen to increase its presence in Tucson, a city with a talented workforce that is focused on helping companies like ADP succeed in meeting the needs of their clients," said Mayor Rothschild.

Watson echoed those remarks, citing as well the company's announcement in November 2016 to create up to 1,500 new jobs at a new facility inTempe, Az.

"ADP's impressive growth in our state emphasizes Arizona's competitiveness in meeting the needs of business and providing jobs for our citizens," said Watson. "Under Governor Ducey's leadership, the Arizona Commerce Authority and our partners are proud to support ADP's continued success in both Tucson and Tempe."

"The decision by ADP to create 250 new jobs in Tucson, bringing their total Arizona employment to nearly 2,000 people, is excellent news for our state," said Governor Doug Ducey, who was unable to attend today's ceremony due to pressing business elsewhere in the state. "When a company like ADP makes such a significant commitment to Arizona, it sends a clear message that our state offers the talent and environment that industry-leading businesses require to be successful."

At a news conference during the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Carlos Rodriguez, chief executive officer of ADP, praised the company's partnership with state and city officials to create the kind of environment conducive to ADP's ongoing growth.

"I'm quite pleased with the collaboration between the State of Arizona, the City of Tucson and ADP that has helped us create these new jobs inTucson and 1,500 additional new jobs in Tempe," said Rodriguez. "ADP is all about helping our clients succeed, and I'm delighted that the people ofArizona will be playing key roles in helping us do that."

The Tucson facility is a sales location, where associates help clients and prospects find the right payroll, HR and human capital management solutions for their business needs.

Among the talent ADP is seeking to attract to its Tucson facility: Associates who reflect the diversity inherent in the clients ADP serves; graduates of the University of Arizona, especially those from the Eller School of Business, and veterans and military spouses given the presence of Davis-Monthan Air Force Base in Tucson, among others.

"We need to match the diversity in the marketplace with diverse sales talent and expertise, and Tucson is rich in highly educated, diverse talent," Rodriguez said. The company also said it has been impressed with graduates it has met from the Eller School of Business and the University of Arizona.

ADP also has a valued team of more than 1,000 veterans who work at the company.

"We've learned through experience that veterans have demonstrated strong leadership skills, strong resiliency, and a wonderful ability to work as team players to get things done," Rodriguez said. "Those are exactly the kinds of skills we need."

Veterans at ADP have come from all branches of the military and served in every major conflict since Vietnam. The company currently employs 56,700 associates globally.

The Future of Pay is Here! New ADP Innovation Helps Employers Tailor Payments to the Preferences of All Employees

Wisely Pay by ADP Combines Global Cash Card and ADP Capabilities to Create Best-in-Class Payment Offering

Originally Published by ADP.

Changes in talent demographics, working arrangements and technology are impacting how employees need and want to be paid. To meet these shifts, paycards and digital accounts are increasingly becoming attractive options, allowing employees to access their pay how and when they want. Additionally, employers now have the opportunity to take an active interest in the financial wellbeing of their workers to help them get the most out of their pay.

ADP is continuing its innovation momentum by revolutionizing the way people are paid by introducing Wisely Pay by ADP. Wisely Pay is the next step in ADP's constant evolution to put clients and their workers at the forefront of macro trends shaping the employment landscape, including the growing number of freelance individuals.

"The world of work is changing and our clients look to us as the market leader in payments, to help them better engage with their entire workforce," said Doug Politi, president of Compliance Solutions at ADP. "Wisely Pay is leading the way people get paid in the future as a true bank alternative, with innovative services like instant pay, savings, digital wallet, and other financial management and wellness features that are better aligned with the evolving workforce."

The functionality of digital accounts, including paycards, and ease of access to funds have made them particularly popular among Millennials. According to a recent report commissioned by ADP, almost half of Gen Z (47 percent) and nearly a third of Millennials (31 percent) would turn down a job if they were unable to choose their method of pay. Additionally, this report revealed that 47 percent of Millennials and 66 percent of Gen Z have used a pre-loaded payment card in the last 12 months.

Wisely Pay is the first offering resulting from ADP's acquisition of Global Cash Card and provides the administrative tools and support to enable employers of any size, industry and workforce blend of full-time, part-time and/or freelance workers to enjoy:

  • Advanced technologies: Best-in-class experiences for cardholders and administrators from ADP's in-house digital payments platform, built by Global Cash Card and ADP's award-winning Instant Funding APIs.
  • Pay flexibility: Wisely Pay offers multiple ways to receive, spend, and manage money, including fully electronic options like peer-to-peer transfers, instant pay, and mobile digital wallets by Apple Pay®, Samsung Pay® and Android Pay®.
  • Attracting and retaining talent: The multi-generational workforce places unique demands on employers and Wisely Pay helps satisfy the needs of workers by offering a banking alternative with numerous funding options, easy cash access, broad purchasing capability, ability to avoid paper check fees and modern financial management tools.
  • Peace of mind: With a 50-state electronic pay program, backed by market-leading expertise and experience in the regulatory landscape, employers can rely on ADP Compliance Solutions, advanced data security and single point-of-contact resolution for all employer support or cardholder issues (e.g. fraud prevention, dispute resolution).

The Wisely paycard will first be available to employers who select to offer sponsored accounts for employees in September 2018 in the United States.
