ROSELAND, N.J., Dec. 10, 2013 /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 fifth consecutive year, ADP received a 100 percent rating in the HRC's 2014 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.

"The continued recognition from the HRC is a great proof-point that our policies for inclusion and diversity at ADP are being successfully implemented," said Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, ADP. "We are committed to providing a workplace environment that is welcoming to all so we can attract the best available talent."

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.

"The concept that 'Each Person Counts' is one of our Core Values and an integral part of our philosophy as a company," added Dermot O'Brien, Chief Human Resources Officer, ADP.  "Not only is being fair and inclusive the right way to operate, it's the best way to ensure success for the company and the individual."
