The ADP Research Institute’s People at Work 2021: A Global Workforce View provides a starting point to understand the situation facing employees today across five dimensions of working life: worker confidence and job security; workplace conditions; pay and performance; worker mobility; and gender and family.
The past year has been a year like no other – in life and in the workplace – causing businessas- usual to be suspended, working practices to be turned on their heads and employers and workers to rethink accepted norms and adapt quickly to an uncertain and fast-changing world.
The impact of COVID-19 has been uneven in terms of job loss and job change. Even workers who have held onto their jobs are facing a variety of unexpected choices and compromises – and in some cases, opportunities.
The sudden shift to remote working, interrupted childcare, or job losses has led many workers to rethink their living arrangements, which could prompt new career choices. Employers need to consider anew how best to attract and retain top talent.
Short-term challenges that seemed temporary a year ago could well turn into long-term issues. Attempting to make some sense of these events and understand the impact on businesses and workers is vital as employers plan a way forward and reaffirm a sense of stability and purpose at a time when the much-talked-of “new normal” is still unclear. This report aims to do just that.
