Ceridian's Repeatable, Reliable Service a Differentiator for the National Counseling Group Ceridian's proven integrated solutions are expected to reduce the company's manual paperwork by more than 60 percent


MINNEAPOLIS, May 10, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Ceridian Corporation, a leading provider of managed human resource, employee benefits administration, tax filing, payroll outsourcing and talent management solutions, announced today that the National Counseling Group (NCG) has selected Ceridian to manage its payroll, HR, benefits administration self-service and new hire reporting services.

In the past, NCG has had problems with other payroll providers, experiencing poor product support or a failure to process payroll timely and accurately.

NCG's payroll issues forced them to consider other vendors, which is when Ceridian became involved.

"We were really impressed with the way Ceridian sat down with us and first tried to understand our business and its payroll and HR needs," commented Frank Viera, NCG's chief operating officer. "Once they understood what we needed they crafted a solution that worked for us. And given our experience with other vendors we were looking for the kind of trusted partner who could provide us with the repeatable and reliable services for which Ceridian is well-known." NCG has more than 18 offices in Virginia, with the majority of their employees out in the field performing case work. Since the employees only visit the main office one day a week, NCG was looking for a solution that could help them keep their employees informed and engaged. Ceridian's self-service was a perfect fit, providing the kind of information platform that can be used to better integrate the company's workforce.

NCG has also been trying to reduce the amount of manual paperwork required when hiring employees. Ceridian's new hire reporting services will reduce NCG's manual paper processing by over 60 percent, simplifying the effort while at the same time using less paper and providing a more environmentally friendly solution.

"We appreciate the confidence NCG has in our solutions," commented John F.

Hunter, executive vice president and general manager of Ceridian HR/Payroll.

"Ceridian takes great pride in delivering significant value and return on investment to our customers through offering the industry's best, most reliable and worry-free solutions. It is just one of the reasons Ceridian enjoys some of the best customer retention numbers in the HR/payroll industry." About the National Counseling Group The National Counseling Group, Inc.
