Fortune 500 company ADP hiring 250 in Tucson

Fortune 500 human resources company ADP announced Tuesday that it will hire another 250 sales people in Tucson, bringing its local workforce to 400.

That brings to three the number of companies that announced plans this month to each hire at least 200 in Tucson. The total is about 700 new jobs.

ADP is a global company based in Roseland, N.J., that was ranked 248th last year on the Fortune 500 list  based on its 2016 revenues of about $12 billion. It manages a variety of personnel functions for companies, including payroll, taxes, benefits and data analysis. It has 56,700 employees worldwide and about 650,000 clients.

The latest hires bring to almost 2,000 the number of ADP workers in Arizona. Last November, ADP announced that that it would hire 1,500 in Tempe, in the building that formerly housed US Airways.

In Tucson, ADP will locate a sales center in 49,543 square feet on two floors at 5451 E. Williams Blvd. The 400 associates there will help direct clients and prospects to the products and services they need.

The site will not be not a call center that offers services or installation help but instead a sales center, said Steve Cross, a spokesman for ADP.. The company is interested in hiring University of Arizona graduates, especially those from the Eller School of Business, and veterans and military spouses.

The previous Tucson job announcements this month were both for call centers. Afni planned to add 280 jobs and Alorica, 200.

Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild said at a ribbon-cutting Tuesday that “I’m delighted that ADP has chosen to increase its presence in Tucson, a city with a talented workforce that is focused on helping companies like ADP succeed in meeting the needs of their clients.”

Carlos Rodriguez, ADP’s CEO, who also attended the ribbon-cutting, said “We need to match the diversity in the marketplace with diverse sales talent and expertise, and Tucson is rich in highly educated, diverse talent.”
