August 24, 2010

ROSELAND, N.J., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — ADP ®, a leading provider of HR, payroll and benefits administration services, today announced that it has completed its acquisition of privately-held Workscape, Inc., a premier provider of integrated benefits and talent management solutions and services.

Based in Marlborough, Massachusetts, with approximately 400 employees, Workscape serves a broad client base, including numerous Fortune 250 companies, and provides solutions to more than 3.5 million users with services deployed in over 180 countries, 48 currencies and 70 languages. Workscape’s core products are considered leading technologies for the markets they serve, and the company’s Total Rewards approach has consistently helped organizations to achieve the highest return on their greatest workforce expenditures: healthcare benefits and employee compensation. A Total Rewards strategy enables organizations to efficiently connect and manage key HR processes (benefits, compensation and performance) to elevate individual, manager and financial efficiency.

“An integral part of ADP’s growth strategy is expanding our benefits and talent management portfolio and the strategic acquisition of a well-established player such as Workscape represents a significant step in that effort,” said Carlos Rodriguez, President of ADP National Account Services and Employer Services International. “The addition of Workscape’s premier benefits and compensation management solutions, its strong brand presence and stellar roster of multi-national clients – coupled with our relationship with Cornerstone OnDemand, a leader in talent management software – will enable ADP to deliver market-leading solutions for large, complex organizations while helping drive the continued growth of our business.”

“The strategic and cultural fit between ADP and Workscape is compelling, and will be extremely complementary in terms of services. We’re confident that the combination of our organizations will create greater value for our mutual clients and deepen our strong relationship with these organizations,” added Rodriguez. “We look forward to working closely with Workscape’s dynamic leadership team to ensure a seamless integration.”

Tim Clifford, co-founder, President and CEO of Workscape commented, “Since our founding in 1999, Workscape’s track record of boosting employee satisfaction, controlling HR costs, and driving higher performance across enterprises has enabled us to achieve strong growth while earning the trust of our valued customers. By joining ADP, one of the world’s most admired companies, we are maximizing our opportunity to play an even more impactful role in expanding the benefits and talent management services marketplace.”
