Those comments came as ADP reported a 16.3-prercent rising in ent income on a 10-4percent increase in earnings for the first quarter ended September 30.

“Our clients are eager to hire and we are seeing workers return to the labor force, even if it's gradual,” Rodriguez said.  “As a result, we expect to benefit from an above-normal level of pays-per-control growth over the course of the year.”

The payroll services company reported net income of $700.5 million for the most recently ended quarter, up from $602.1 million a year earlier. Revenue reached $3.83 billion, compared to $3.47 billion in last year’s corresponding period.

Rodriguez said ADP needs to grow its workforce, as revenue growth exceeded expense growth. “I would say that we have a strong appetite for growing our sales force, but also for growing our investment in marketing, whether it's digital marketing or more traditional advertising,” he said. ADP is trying to add capacity for implementation and service before year’s end.
