ADP, LLC will locate a new office in Florida’s Orange County in the City of Maitland. The new office will create up to 1,600 jobs within the next five years and result in a capital investment of $28 million. ADP is a global provider of cloud-based Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions that unite HR, payroll, talent, time, tax, and benefits administration.
“Powerful technology combined with superior service is why ADP is a Human Capital Management leader,” said Debbie Dyson, corporate vice president, Client Experience and Continuous Improvement at ADP. “We are strategically placing jobs in the areas of client support and implementation and are happy to be doing this in the Orlando area.”
The Orlando Economic Development Commission (EDC) worked with the company to provide a detailed business cost analysis, real estate information, employer interviews and vital connections to partners including local executives, staffing companies, universities and CareerSource agencies.
“The addition of ADP to the region expands the list of industry leaders who have chosen Orlando because they have discovered what we all know – this is an incredible place for a business to thrive and prosper because of our skilled and abundant workforce,” said Holly Wiedman, Orlando EDC executive vice president. “I am proud of the hard work done by the EDC and all of our partners as we worked together to successfully recruit ADP to our great region.”
The project originated with direct contact from a site location consultant in September 2015 who was working with a Fortune 250 company looking to create 1,600 jobs in business outsourcing. The consultant, who specializes in talent, was impressed with both the quantity and quality of Orlando’s workforce. The EDC and community partners hosted the consultant and company executives on more than five trips to the market where they met with talent providers and local executives who could talk about doing business in the Orlando region.
Ultimately, ADP was impressed with the Orlando region’s strong demographics, workforce and talent pipeline. The company focuses on hiring recent graduates with 4-year degrees and the University of Central Florida’s annual graduating class of more than 24,000 among its 63,000 students overall was certainly a draw. Within 100 miles of Orlando, there are more than 500,000 higher education students enrolled, allowing companies to recruit from a broad base of top tier colleges and universities.
Partners in the expansion include Enterprise Florida, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Orlando EDC, Orange County, the City of Maitland, CareerSource Central Florida and Duke Energy.
“ADP’s exciting announcement will mean new job opportunities this year and well into the future for the communities we serve,” said Alex Glenn, Duke Energy Florida state president. “This win is a perfect example of the importance economic development plays in everyone’s life and the success that comes from community partners working together to attract new businesses to the region. Duke Energy is proud to have been part of the team to attract ADP to Florida.”
