ADP Canada Co. plans to expand and add up to 250 new full-time jobs over five years in its Burnside location.
The province, through Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI), is supporting the expansion with a five-year payroll rebate for a maximum of $2.3 million that will support the company's growth as the demand for its services continues to grow.
Job opportunities will include positions such as senior analysts, payroll administration and payroll specialist positions.
"Increasingly, organizations of all sizes are choosing ADP to provide payroll, human resources and benefits services and expertise so they in turn can focus on growing their business," says Cindy Jeffrey, vice president, Client Services, Employer Services division of ADP Canada. "As this demand continues to grow, so too does our presence in Nova Scotia."
ADP's commitment to employee development includes:
• a comprehensive six-week training program
• professional development through a target of 40 hours per year for associate training
• up to $5,000 per year in tuition assistance to associates who wish to advance their education and develop their skills for their current or future position
• continued development through a personalized development plan specific to their career development goals
In 2006, ADP Canada opened its facility in Burnside. Currently, about 350 staff members work at the location.
"Jurisdictions around the world compete for the kind of growth ADP has chosen for its Nova Scotia operation, not once, but now twice," says Stephen Lund, president and CEO, Nova Scotia Business Inc. "Nova Scotia's advantages and the payroll rebate combine to make this a win for the province and the company."
ADP is member of the Halifax Chamber of Commerce, and supports numerous local charities including FEED Nova Scotia, The United Way and Junior Achievement.
