To help them do this, ADP® has expanded its innovative lineup of solutions to offer clients' employees, as well as ADP's own associates, the option to voluntarily and confidentially self-identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer (LGBTQ). Self-identification can help companies to better develop programs and benefits that meet the needs of LGBTQ associates and to better attract and retain a diverse talent pool to stay competitive in today's tight labor market.

According to the HRC Corporate Equality Index 2018 survey of 947 employers, 49 percent allow employees to voluntarily disclose their sexual orientation and gender identity on anonymous surveys or confidential Human Resource records, compared with 27 percent in the 2008 survey and just 17 percent in the 2006 survey.
"Prior to Self-ID, we had to rely on engagement surveys and business resource groups (BRGs) to help measure things like population size and satisfaction of our LGBTQ workforce," said
ADP is also developing a new app designed to help midsized companies start BRGs. The app will provide companies with a BRG toolkit that shares employer best practices, newsletters, videos and upcoming meetings and events. ADP will be testing the app internally this summer with its LGBTQ + Allies BRG, ADP Pride.
Other ADP solutions that promote diversity and inclusion include Pay Equity Explorer and Visual Search. Pay Equity Explorer, one of Human Resource Executive's "Awesome New Technologies," helps organizations uncover insights and identify potential areas of risk when it comes to gender or race pay gaps. Visual Search helps recruiters eliminate unconscious bias by removing factors like gender, ethnicity and pay so they can focus on the skills most relevant for the open position.
ADP's commitment to diversity and inclusion has been recognized by several industry publications including DiversityInc as one of the Top 10 Companies for Diversity, by BLACK ENTERPRISE as one of the 2018 "50 Best Companies for Diversity" and by Working Mother® as one of the 2018 Top 10 Companies for Multicultural Women. ADP also received a perfect score of 100 percent on the 2018 Corporate Equality Index® (CEI), a national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ workplace equality for the ninth year in a row.
