This marks the eighth year in a row that ADP has been on the list, and the fourth time in the past five years the company has occupied the top spot in its industry category.
"Ranking at the top of our category once again on the FORTUNE "Most Admired" list, as recognized by our peers, demonstrates ADP's relentless pursuit of excellence in everything we do," said Carlos Rodriguez, president and CEO of ADP. "We maintain a deep commitment not only to performance and service excellence, but to innovation. Our ability to deliver solutions that meet and exceed our clients' expectations is a testament to the talent, expertise and unwavering dedication of our more than 60,000 associates around the world."
Each year, FORTUNE magazine partners with Hay Group to conduct an annual survey of executives, directors, and analysts who are asked to rate approximately 1,400 companies on nine key attributes of corporate reputation. Only the top five companies in each industry category are ranked as "Most Admired Companies."
