Automatic Data Processing Inc. (NASD: ADP), a Roseland, N.J.-based payroll services and professional employer organization, Monday announced that it has acquired privately held The RightThing, a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) provider. The RightThing is also the parent company of AIRS, a recruitment training and technology company. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The RightThing acquisition broadens ADP’s HR business process outsourcing (HR BPO) capabilities and complements its existing applicant tracking and talent management solutions. The RightThing was ranked as a top RPO provider by Everest Research, and has been recognized by HRO Today magazine as a leading enterprise RPO provider for the past several years.
“With the addition of The RightThing’s industry-leading RPO services, technology and management team, ADP will not only expand into a strategic adjacent market, but will also immediately become a principal player in the RPO industry,” said Regina Lee, president of ADP’s National Account Services, Major Account Services, GlobalView and ADP Canada business units. “The combination of ADP and The RightThing will create immediate and strategic benefits for both businesses in the areas of operational delivery, service breadth, and leading-edge solutions,” said Terry Terhark, The RightThing’s CEO.
