Scripps Selects ADP to Provide HR Business Process Outsourcing Services to Increase HR Efficiencies

ADP's BPO Solution Provides a Single-Source That Enables Consistency Across Company's Multiple Divisions

ROSELAND, NJ--(Marketwire - April 16, 2008) - ADP ® Employer Services, a leading provider of HR, payroll and benefits administration, today announced that The E. W. Scripps Company (Scripps) has selected ADP to provide comprehensive HR, payroll, benefits, pre-employment and related services to support its more than 9,000 employees.

Scripps is a diverse media corporation with interests in national lifestyle cable networks, newspaper publishing, broadcast television stations, electronic commerce, interactive media, and licensing and syndication. The company announced in October 2007 that it would be separating the company into two publicly traded organizations -- one focused on intensely local businesses (The E. W. Scripps Company) and one focused on national and global brands (Scripps Networks Interactive). The separation is expected to be complete this summer, and ADP will be an HR business partner to both companies.

By implementing ADP's Comprehensive Outsourcing Services (COS), Scripps intends to improve the quality and increase the efficiency of the HR services provided to all of its managers and employees.

"This partnership has enabled ADP to deliver a complete suite of COS solutions that complements Scripps' business plan by offering proven HR processes and scalable technologies," said Regina Lee, President of ADP's National Account Services. "We've built our HR BPO solutions specifically to help organizations like Scripps fully realize growth and profitability. We're pleased they have selected ADP to support their employees in meeting their distinctive and evolving needs."

Delivering multi-process solutions to mid-market organizations, ADP's COS offering combines proprietary technology and unrivaled experience to deliver a range of HR solutions for organizations with more than 1,000 employees.
