ROSELAND, N.J., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --ADP^®, a leading provider of
human capital management services, today announced that The Jackson Companies,
a family-owned enterprise of golf course and campground establishments in
South Carolina, has selected the ADP Vitality wellness program to help combat
a top business challenge – rising healthcare costs. Designed to assist
midsized companies in fostering a culture of health and wellness, the ADP
Vitality wellness program will enhance The Jackson Companies' existing
"Teammates Getting into Fitness" wellness initiatives.

More than two-thirds of human resources decision makers in midsized companies
believe the cost of healthcare coverage will increase faster over the next
three years than it has in past years, according to a recent study by the ADP
Research Institute^SM. The Jackson Companies joins an expanding list of
midsized organizations adopting the ADP Vitality wellness program to help
address this issue.

"We're taking a proactive approach to help our employees live healthier lives
as healthcare costs continue to grow," said Dennis Wade, Chief Executive
Officer, The Jackson Companies. "Pairing the ADP Vitality wellness program
with our existing wellness activities will help increase teammate
participation by enabling them to access educational tools and resources at
work, home or on the run."

The ADP Vitality wellness solution helps midsized employers with between 50
and 1,000 employees proactively manage rising healthcare costs while also
helping to reduce healthcare claims and employee absenteeism. Key features of
this incentive-based program include an interactive wellness portal, health
risk assessments, biometric screenings and personalized wellness plans with
recommended goals and activities. The program integrates with social
networking sites, mobile applications and fitness technologies to give
employees additional support as they pursue their wellness goals. When
employees achieve plan goals, they earn points toward lowering their health
plan contributions.

"The ADP Vitality wellness solution empowers employers and their employees to
take greater control over their health and medical costs," said Regina Lee,
Division President, ADP. "By adopting preventative strategies like health and
wellness programs, midsized companies can work toward lowering health expenses
as well as increasing employee morale and productivity."
