Does anyone know how layoffs are determined? There’s more coming & the “poor performers” have already been let go.

I wouldn't go back to work for this company if you paid me 5 times what I was earning. It treats it's clients like garbage and it's employees even worse. Employer of Choice for who, mo--ns?
Major factor is how much you earn. Higher paid people are a target to be laid off.
Just heard a rumor that 7% additional RIFFs in the next 2 months..not sure if this is global or just GETS
I tried to stay with ADP when my job was eliminated. I applied for numerous jobs and interviewed for some which were just courtesy interviews due to my tenure. I was made to feel like an uneducated id--t even though I had been there for 17 yrs with accolades of praise from my managers and associates. So I left and received a job offer with a reputable company right away after one interview. I am so happy to be rid of the mind games and living in fear daily of having my job eliminated.
It is not a secret that ADP wants to get rid of the pension fund along with the tenured employees with higher salaries. It is also obvious that remote employees are being asked to work in-house or they will be asked to leave. Those are facts, not opinions. The more individuals who leave ADP, the higher spin that can be put on 'how well ADP is doing' which is all financial smoke and mirrors except for the top executive staff who have stock options. If you fit any of those categories and you are smart, you will update your resume and start looking.
I concur: these are actual truths on how the decisions are being made to clean house at ADP! I left on MY terms before my number came up. I fit all the criteria and no way were they throwing me out. Lots of mind games and bully tactics to try and get people to leave on their own. I saw it first hand. There are plenty of other companies out there who treat employees better than they do!
3 things determin you turn in line, 1. Amounts or years vested in the pension, the higher it is the Closer in front of the line you get, 2. Pay, the more you are paid, start packing. 3. Ageism, the older you are the more of a liability you become, experience is valuable but it also cost more. Number 1 is almost complete, now we are at number 2, this is why now you see so-called low performance being let go, most times so called low performers are really the people that ask questions or better paid.
You don't have to see the decision making or be a part of that process. You only have to see the disastrous results that has been produced from that decision making. Getting rid of top performing employees has been the result of the decision making. Loss of quality service has been the result of the decision making. Enraged clients and lost clientele has been the result of the decision making. Disaffected low paid employees who want to learn and contribute but are leaving because of flawed and broken processes are the result because of the decision making. If this is success from these secret opaque decision makers, then show me what failure is. ADP is now a broken company lurching here and there trying ineptly to recover.
Again, you don't need to see the decision making, merely the results that it produces. What has been produced is hurting ADP, in a big way. The decision makers have been inept in providing stewardship for their company by making grevious mistakes in their decision making process. That shame cannot be hidden in that nebulous decision making process. Major mistakes have been made. Major mistakes yielding major disasters. Oh yes, again from the decision making process.
If you haven't been part of the decision making, they are opinions. Have you been part of the decision making?
No, they are facts disguised as opinions.
Opinion disguised as fact.
ADP was stupid in eliminating and in the process of eliminating their top talent in favor of hiring cheap unproven workers. That was not good strategic thinking but a strategic mistake.
The "expensive" employees, the remote workers, and people hired before January, 2015 (eligible for an ADP pension) that are still at ADP, are on ADP's radar for elimination. Note that this is being done in stages in order to minimize any excessively negative impact to the company. In the end, all of these targeted workers will be gone.
Not true across the board for all ADP offices. ADP is still in business to make $, and the cheap labor is not cutting it, as they thought it would.
They are being strategic, not stupid. Not all of those categories- remote, not in a One ADP Center, higher paid-are on lay-off radar. If they were, they would already be laid-off after year-end. At least that is what many posters posted before year-end.
I met all those conditions. That's why I voluntary left at the end of 2018. I found a great company that values their employees, even those that work remotely. We are much more nimble and and able to provide better service to clients.
I'm happier and sleep better. No regrets at all!
Another factor that outs you at high risk is if you have the pension plan. That stopped for new hires a few years back.
If you have been with ADP for a number of years and are currently making the high old style wages before the new drastic labor cost cutting wages were introduced, then you are a prime candidate for being laid off or fired. If you are currently 100% remote, then you also are in danger of being let go.
The rationale for the terminations is that ADP doesn't want to pay its employees decent wages anymore and they don't want their people working from home. Cheaply-paid employees who work in a major hub office where they can be carefully watched is what ADP wants now.
