Clinton losing ADP as company shifts up to 100 jobs to Georgia

Automatic Data Processing, a business-outsourcing provider more commonly known as ADP, is shutting down in Clinton and moving its approximately 100 jobs to Augusta, Ga.

New Jersey-based ADP has not responded to phone calls over the last couple of days but a spokesman for the Mississippi Development Authority confirmed the company’s departure from the WorldCom Center, where it moved into in early 2008 with the promise of creating up to 1,000 jobs over a five-year period.

“The company is consolidating operations into its Augusta, Ga., location, with a target date of February. There are 90 to 100 jobs involved,” said Dan Turner, MDA spokesman.

The global company’s Solutions Center in Clinton provides business-to-business support through handling of inbound calls, using ADP’s payroll and human resources-related applications and automotive dealer-related products and services, the company says.

ADP says it has annual revenues of nearly $8 billion and approximately 585,000 clients.

“Central Mississippi continues to be a fertile environment for attracting technology-driven industries,” says Ross Tucker, director of the Greater Jackson Alliance. “Companies like ADP recognize the unlimited workforce population of the area, which includes graduates from both two- and four-year academic institutions.

In announcing its decision to set up shop in Clinton more than five years ago, ADP said it expected to attract professionals across the state and the nation into its workforce.
