ROSELAND, N.J., Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) services, today announced that it has once again been recognized as a top-rated employer by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) – the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization.

For the fourth consecutive year, ADP received a 100 percent rating in the HRC's 2013 Corporate Equality Index (CEI).  The HRC's CEI annually rates large U.S. employers based on their policies and practices pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees.  As in prior years, ADP was recognized by HRC as a top-rated employer for its diverse workforce and commitment to inclusion regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

"ADP is proud to once again be recognized by the Human Rights Campaign as an organization that is deeply committed to fostering a highly diverse and inclusive workplace environment," said Tara Amaral, Chief Diversity Officer and Vice President of Staffing, ADP.

To achieve a perfect score and the coveted distinction of being one of the "Best Places to Work for LGBT Equality," companies must have fully-inclusive equal employment opportunity policies, provide equal employment benefits, demonstrate organizational LGBT competency, provide evidence of their commitment to equality publicly and exercise responsible citizenship.

"At ADP, fairness, equality and inclusion are embedded in our core values, with one of those being the very simple but incredibly important notion that 'Each Person Counts,'" added Dermot O'Brien, Chief Human Resources Officer, ADP.  "As an organization, we believe diversity enables better outcomes in every way and always strive to embrace the diversity of our associates, our clients and our business partners."
