Like all great enterprises, Automatic Data Processing (ADP) began with an idea. One of our founders, 21 year-old Henry Taub visited a company where a key employee had taken ill. As a result the payroll wasn't done and the workers weren't paid on time. Where others saw a problem, Henry saw opportunity, and launched a manual payroll processing service with payrolls often delivered by bus.
This spark of an idea grew to ignite an entire industry of outsourcing services and changed the way companies do business. Today ADP serves over 650,000 clients in over 110 countries. More than 70 percent of Fortune 500 companies use at least one of ADP's services.
