New Initiative Combines Professional Certification, Webinars and Personal Access
to Experts
ROSELAND, N.J.,  March 7, 2013  /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading provider of 
human capital management  services, today launched ADP Pro, an educational
program specifically designed to give midsized companies multiple opportunities
to engage with ADP subject matter experts on a range of human capital management
issues, learn industry best practices and expand their professional credentials.

"Midsized businesses face new and unique challenges - everything from increased
government regulation to the growing cost of healthcare," said  Regina Lee,
President, Major Account Services, National Account Services, GlobalView®  and
ADP Canada at ADP.  "ADP Pro takes our superior client engagement to the next
level by linking our deep roster of subject matter experts with clients to learn
how unified human resources management tools can dramatically impact business

ADP's professional certification is a key component of the ADP Pro program.  To
date, more than 2,000 payroll and human resources professionals have earned this
credential, which many see as an employment differentiator.  ADP certification
is offered twice a year during the Spring and Fall.  The program includes
virtual test preparation classes and requires an in-person exam at one of 
Pearson VUE's more than 200 national testing centers.  Candidates who complete
ADP's test preparation classes earn Continuing Education (CE) Credits at the
rate of 1.5 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Credits, 1.5 Recertification
Credit Hours (RCH) or 0.2 Continuing Education Units (CEU).  Payroll and human
resources professionals at midsized companies will have access to ADP's growing
list of certification areas, which includes  ADP Workforce Now®, the company's
primary human resources management solution for midsized companies.  

The ADP Pro program also features ongoing training opportunities through a new
series of webinars that are free for clients.  Running twice a month, these
webinars will showcase best practices across a variety of topics from healthcare
reform and risk management to navigating the social media landscape.  The ADP
Pro webinar series offers clients another way to earn Continuing Education
Credits and can be accessed via ADP's client portal.  The first webinar will
take place on  March 13  and will focus on empowering a mobile workforce.  On 
March 27, another webinar will take place focusing on the U.S. Affordable Care

ADP will also offer in-person access to ADP Pros at their semiannual regional
User Group Meetings.  At ADP's User Group Meetings midsized businesses will be
able to receive one-on-one insights from the company's internal experts on
timely business issues while receiving training on ADP's ever-evolving product

"By offering convenient training opportunities that yield continuing education
credits and provide direct access to experts in areas like compliance, ADP Pro
will help my organization take a best practice approach to workforce
management," said  Roslyn H. Schaffer, SPHR, Director of Human Resources at The
Barnes Foundation, a major institution that promotes the advancement of
education and the appreciation of the fine arts with campuses in  Philadelphia 
and Merion,  Pennsylvania, and an ADP client.
