Tempe, Ariz.— ADP, a comprehensive global provider of cloud-based Human Capital Management solutions, has announced the opening of a new operation center in Tempe, Ariz. As reported by state officials, the company plans to create roughly 1,500 jobs and invest more than $33.8 million in remodeling the building.
“We are excited to tap into Tempe’s diverse talent pool. The associates we hire in Tempe will help us continue to deliver the very best service experience our clients around the world have come to know and appreciate,” Debbie Dyson, corporate vice president with Client Experience and Continuous Improvement at ADP, said in prepared remarks.
According to Chris Camacho, president & CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, the nine-story building incorporates more than 200,000 square feet. The property offers convenient access to ASU, which will enable the company to ramp up its operations through the university’s talent pool. According to the Phoenix Business Journal, the new facility will be located in a building that formerly housed the US Airways headquarters.
“We worked closely with our partners to showcase why Greater Phoenix is a high value place for ADP to scale, including the walkability and urban vibrancy of Downtown Tempe and access to a large talent pool at ASU that will allow ADP to ramp up their operations this spring,” added Camacho.
“ADP’s decision to significantly expand its Arizona workforce demonstrates that industry-leading companies are confident they can create large numbers of jobs in our state and find the best candidates to fill them. Not only does Arizona offer an exceptional talent pool for employers to choose from, it offers a lifestyle that attracts and retains the skilled workers that companies like ADP require,” commented Governor Doug Ducey.
AZ Family reported that partners in this deal include Governor Ducey’s Office, the City of Tempe, the Arizona Commerce Authority and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.
