Fitness First, MergerMarket and Hughes Network Systems partner with ADP
LONDON, UK – April 1, 2014 - ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, has recently been selected by three organisations as the most suitable partner to deliver insightful recruitment tools, as well as HR and Payroll solutions. Fitness First, MergerMarket and Hughes Network Systems have chosen ADP for its superior service and expertise as an HCM provider.
Fitness First, with 1,200 employees, was keen to ensure further improvements to its existing recruitment process to help identify the top talent they needed to take their business forward. In order to help meet business objectives, it has chosen ADP’s employment screening solution, ADP BackCheck. Fitness First believes the new solution will give it the insight it needs to hire the most suitable individuals, limit the risk of non-compliance of employment issues, reduce their admin burden and reduce staff turnover.
Neil Tune, HR Director at Fitness First commented: “ADP BackCheck will provide us with the insight to make better informed recruitment decisions, helping us to reduce recruitment costs, increase staff retention and employ the best and most reliable talent. Our ultimate goal is to ensure we have the best staff who inspire, support and meet our members’ needs.”
Leading financial information company MergerMarket, recently acquired by private equity firm BC Partners, has selected ADP to implement and deliver HR and payroll services.
MergerMarket currently employs 340 staff in the UK, with further operations overseas, including 360 employees in the US, and will utilise ADP freedom Managed Payroll Service with integrated HR functionality.
Jonathan Gomer, CFO at MergerMarket, said “We chose ADP for its Managed Payroll with integrated HR functionality as a result of their ability to mobilise the business and get the company live quickly. We do not have any payroll expertise or resource in-house so it was extremely important to select a solid partner which had the expertise. “As ADP has extensive private equity experience, they understood our HR and payroll requirements and our internal business pressures. Another major factor in our decision to partner with ADP was their ability to meet our international requirements.”
Hughes Network Systems Ltd
Hughes Network Systems Ltd has chosen ADP as its payroll solutions partner. The world’s leading provider of satellite broadband sought a partner who would deliver a high level of service and support.
Deborah Biggs, HR Manager at Hughes, said: “Our previous provider was not delivering the standard we needed, with recurring errors being made. ADP was a clear choice for us due to its reputation for a high degree of service and support throughout. Another benefit for us is ADP’s global footprint. As a growing global provider ourselves, we were looking for a partner whose solutions could flex with our own growth, and we feel that ADP truly has that ability.”
David Foskett, DVP Sales and Marketing at ADP, said: “We are pleased to have partnered with Fitness First, MergerMarket and Hughes Network Systems as their preferred HCM solutions partner to meet their individual business needs. Our expertise has positioned ADP as the partner of choice for a number of organisations, and we look forward to working with them and strengthening our relationship further.”
