Claudia joined ADP in 2017 with a passion for making a difference. ADP’s size and structure provided the opportunity to be directly engaged with the business leaders and a voice at the table. She stands by the company’s vision of ‘creating great environments with great people’ and says her role is to help make the vision tangible for everyone at ADP, be it through policies, individual development, our graduate program, or simply being there to listen.
Having worked in the construction industry for 15 years, Claudia says she loves the enthusiasm and out-of-the-box thinking that engineers bring. Although she does not work directly on building projects, Claudia has a real sense of pride, knowing that the team she works with has been involved and she feels like she has been on the journey to completion with them.
Claudia says the most significant drivers in her role are the people. She gets great satisfaction from building the best teams and knowing that bringing people together can create the best outcomes for our clients. She not only enjoys taking the time to identify the needs of each group and fulfilling them but also identifying the strengths and development opportunities of individuals. Claudia gets a real kick out of watching these teams grow in their careers.
The biggest hurdle and most significant opportunity, according to Claudia, is communication. She believes that without an open and honest dialogue, people cannot move forward. She also believes strongly in understanding other people’s perspectives, saying that we will forever be alone until we learn to take our shoes off and walk a mile in someone else’s.
One of Claudia’s passions is animals. Not only does she have her fur-family, but she also fosters kittens and volunteers her time at the Lost Dog’s Home and says it keeps her humble.
