ROSELAND, N.J., Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Working Mother® magazine has recognized ADP® as one of the 2019 "100 Best Companies" for its outstanding leadership in creating progressive programs and benefits that advance and support working parents. Chosen based on the inclusive benefits they provide for families, the 100 Best Companies are featured in the October/November issue of Working Mother and on workingmother.com. This is the third time ADP has been recognized.
"We are proud to once again be recognized as one of the best companies for working parents," said Aisha Thomas-Petit, chief diversity and corporate social responsibility officer at ADP. "Our families can be our greatest champions, inspiring us to work toward something greater. ADP is committed to supporting its working mothers and helping them realize their full potential by providing comprehensive benefits and advancement programs that can help break down barriers to success in whatever career path they choose.

In addition to this recognition, ADP named Anna Santolucito the company's 2019 Working Mother of the Year. A dedicated leader and mother, Anna's 15-year career path at ADP led her to her current role as division vice president of west coast sales for ADP Major Accounts. Passionate about balancing her career and motherhood, Anna is a member of ADP's Women in Leadership Council, where she connects with other women to share best practices on professional development, community impact and work/life balance.
