Expert Q&A With Chris Capko of ADP

Chris Capko, ADP: We developed a private equity program at ADP to specifically help private equity firms add value to their portfolios. We do that in a couple of different ways. We start with working on their transactions.

When you move into the second lifecycle, how they manage their portfolio, we focus on portfolio-optimization projects that help their companies maximize human capital. Human capital management, or human capital in general, represents probably the largest expense for most companies, but it’s somewhat of an untapped market. No one’s ever really been able to value human capital; it’s been a soft cost. We’ve worked through a diagnostic tool to actually put a hard value on human capital and give firms a way to extract that value.

When you look to firms that are going to exit an organization, we work with them to help professionalize their organizations before they put them up to bid. That helps increase multiples and helps them sell it faster.
