PORTLAND, Ore., and MIAMI, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ADP®, a leading provider of human capital management (HCM) services, announced today that ADP TotalSource® is expanding into Portland, Ore., to help small and midsized businesses reduce the administrative burdens of human resources management, stabilize costs of benefits administration, and manage regulatory complexities of Health Care Reform. ADP TotalSource offers small to midsized businesses an effective and strategic HR solution through its Professional Employer Organization (PEO) model. As a PEO, ADP TotalSource provides integrated human resource management services through a co-employment arrangement, where the client company continues to direct employees' day-to-day, job-related duties. At the same time, ADP TotalSource contractually assumes certain HR-related rights, responsibilities and risks as the "employer of record" on an employee's W-2. Businesses that leverage ADP TotalSource also have access to FORTUNE 500®-caliber benefits, such as a retirement savings program, healthcare insurance and disability insurance. According to a recent survey by the ADP Research Institute(sm), only 17 percent of human resources and employee benefits decision makers at midsized businesses are highly confident that they understand their responsibilities under Health Care Reform. Affordable Care Act mandates will affect every business differently based on the number of employees, the number of hours they work, and how health benefits are administered. By working with thousands of small and midsized businesses across all sectors, ADP TotalSource has firsthand insights into the many HR-related challenges that employers face every day, including those relating to the ACA. "The complexity of ACA compliance, as well as the increasing costs associated with being an employer of choice, are key challenges confronting small and midsized businesses today," said Kevin Simons, General Manager of ADP TotalSource's West Central Region. "Business owners are looking for effective solutions to help navigate this complexity so they can maximize their human resource investments. We look forward to helping businesses in Portland and throughout Oregon make informed decisions about their workforce," Simons added. With new ADP TotalSource offices in Portland, area businesses now have access to a team of expert Human Resource Business Partners who consult on workforce and benefits strategies, informing them about the impact Health Care Reform and other regulatory developments will have on their businesses, while providing guidance on ways to reduce risk through improved compliance and payroll tax tools, such as our shared responsibility calculator, to help make informed decisions. ADP TotalSource is the nation's largest PEO, operating more than 50 offices in 27 states, with approximately 279,000 worksite employees in all 50 states. Businesses taking advantage of ADP TotalSource's PEO services are assigned an experienced TotalSource Human Resource Business Partner who leads a team of experts drawn from human resource management, employee benefits, payroll services, risk management and regulatory compliance.
