Governor Doug Ducey announced that ADP® will open a new location in Tempe, Arizona in the spring of 2017. This new office will create up to 1,500 new jobs and the company will invest more than $33.75 million in the Tempe community.
“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,” said Governor Ducey. “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.”

The company is a leader in business outsourcing services, analytics, and compliance expertise. ADP serves more than 650,000 clients of all types and sizes around the world.
“We are excited to tap into Tempe’s diverse talent pool,” said Debbie Dyson, corporate vice president, Client Experience and Continuous Improvement at ADP. “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.”
“The new Tempe office is key to our overall Service Alignment strategy and supports our goal of providing an exceptional experience for our clients and associates,” said Dinora Sanchez, senior vice president, Global Business Transformation at ADP. “We look forward to welcoming approximately 1,500 Tempe-areas residents to our ADP family.”
Partners in this effort include Governor Ducey’s Office, the City of Tempe, the Arizona Commerce Authority, and the Greater Phoenix Economic Council.
“We are thrilled to welcome ADP to the City of Tempe. The 1,500 new jobs will contribute to Tempe’s diverse economy and be part of the great things happening in downtown Tempe. ADP’s decision to locate in Tempe is in large part because of our comprehensive and growing transportation network, deep sense of community, and our vibrant urban environment,” said the Honorable Mark Mitchell, Mayor, City of Tempe.
“ADP’s expansion in Tempe is an excellent addition to Arizona’s thriving advanced business services sector,” said Sandra Watson, Arizona Commerce Authority President and CEO. “This growth is driven by the quality of our talent, as well as the advantages Arizona offers to businesses in terms of operating costs, light regulation and low taxes. I congratulate ADP on their impressive growth and look forward to supporting their continued success in Arizona.”
“The more than 200,000 square foot building in Tempe offers ADP the space to meet their growth needs,” said Chris Camacho, president & CEO, Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “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.”
