Life @ ADP EP6: Why did you come to ADP, and Why do you stay?
Here comes the final Season One episode of Life@ADP.
Many of us feel great pride working for ADP, but sometimes it’s hard to put into words the cultural elements that resonate with us that make our company more than just a place to work.
In this episode, our hosts Kate and Ingrid invited Sreeni Kutam, Chief Human Resources Officer, and relative newcomer, Chief Economist, Nela Richardson, to share why they joined ADP and why they stay.

“I looked for the opportunity to bring technology and people together, and that’s why I came to ADP. Innovation is the word that sums it up,” Sreeni said. “There are three things one looks for in their career. First is meaningful work. Second is a group of great people they work with. Third is the opportunity for growth. I’m lucky to check all three boxes at ADP,” Sreeni said.
“The reason why I came is, I felt that ADP was uniquely positioned to answer some of the biggest economic questions coming out of the pandemic. As important as why I came is why I hope to stay. I came to a company that valued people and as an added bonus, they are people who, crazy enough, seem to enjoy the data as much as I do,” Nela said.
We recommend this episode to better understand our culture and why ADP is a wonderful place to work. Sreeni and Nela will also share why it’s a great time to join the organization.
According to LinkedIn’s 2021 Workforce Learning Report, employees who move into new jobs internally are 3.5x more likely to be engaged employees than those who stay in their current positions.
Sreeni shared some great examples of our executive committee members who grew from humble beginnings within ADP to lead our company. “There are many great leaders and opportunities to grow at ADP. For example, Debbie Dyson started as a customer service representative, and she is now the President of our National Accounts business unit,” Sreeni said. “Another great example is John Ayala, who went from working in customer service to leading the function as the Chief Operating Officer.”
Sreeni said there will always be learning opportunities for associates, no matter their start date or department, while Nela shared, “I enjoy the global perspective here at ADP. You can always leverage the experience from one role to another here, knowing your teams will support innovative ideas.”
