Bad management holding back UK productivity

Bad management is the biggest drain on productivity in the workplace, according to a new study from ADP, which surveyed 1,300 employees across the UK.

 

LONDON, UK – 15 February 2018 - Bad management is the biggest drain on productivity in the workplace, according to a new study from ADP, which surveyed 1,300 employees across the UK. The study reveals that a third of workers (32%) regularly struggle to be productive in their job, with one in six (16%) respondents blaming their manager - ahead of inefficient systems and (15%) and staff shortages (13%).   The UK has been grappling with low productivity levels for a number of years, consistently placed behind other leading economies, such as and the in official productivity tables. While recent ONS figures suggested a recovery is underway, reporting the biggest jump in productivity levels for six years, the ADP findings indicate that UK PLC isn’t out of the woods just yet.   Workers in the financial services industry are facing the biggest issues with productivity, according to the findings, with more than two fifths (44%) saying they are only able to reach maximum productivity at most ‘some of the time.’ Within this sector, more than a quarter of professionals (28%) blame inefficient systems and, while a fifth (21%) say bad management is the biggest culprit.   Barriers to productivity also vary significantly based on age, with over 55s the most affected by bad management (20%), while 16 to 24-year olds are more affected by social media (22%) distractions from colleagues (21%) and stress (18%). Meanwhile, over 55s are revealed to be the most easily distracted in the workplace, with 17% saying they are rarely or never able to be at their most productive.   “Productivity is vital for organisational and economic success, which is why maximising output must be a top priority for employers,” commented xxx, xxx, ADP UK. “It might be notoriously difficult to measure and improve productivity levels, but these findings provide a good indication of the factors that are most important. Ineffective management is a major drain on employee output, not to mention motivation and engagement, which is why investment in management training is critical. Processes, systems and technology must also be updated regularly, with the input of frontline staff, to ensure they are consistently helping them to work in the best – and most productive - way possible.”   To read the ful report, see here: The Workforce View in Europe 2018     About the research   ‘The Workforce View in Europe 2018’ report explores the attitudes of employees toward the future of work.

The GDPR requires organisations to understand what employee information they have, who has access to the information and where the information resides. Non-compliance can be costly, with companies facing penalties of up to four percent of their worldwide revenue or €20 million, whichever is higher. 
 
 

  London, UK – 11 May, 2017 – Organisations that conduct business in Europe and handle EU residents’ data are about to face the biggest change to data protection laws in 30 years. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will take effect May 25, 2018 and promises to introduce a new era of data governance and enhanced requirements in security and personal data processing.
  The GDPR requires organisations to understand what employee information they have, who has access to the information and where the information resides. Non-compliance can be costly, with companies facing penalties of up to four percent of their worldwide revenue or €20 million, whichever is higher.
  Despite potentially significant fines, a Dell® survey found that small and midsized businesses and large enterprises lack general awareness of the requirements of the new regulation, how to prepare for it and the impact of non-compliance on data security and business outcomes. In fact, more than 80 percent of global respondents knew few details or nothing at all about GDPR.
  To help educate employers, ADP® will conduct an hour-long webcast to help global organisations understand and navigate the looming GDPR legislation and its potential impact on their business.
  This webcast will help participants learn:

• The new GDPR obligations for employers doing business within the EU.
• What actions organisations can start to take now to minimise potential regulatory challenges.
• How outsourcing HR data processing to a cloud-based HCM provider can help mitigate risks.
  This free webcast, titled “GDPR: Get Ready for the New Regulatory Landscape of HR Data,” will take place at 2 p.m. UTC on Wednesday, May 24, 2017. Speakers will include Cecile Georges, chief privacy officer at ADP, Pascale Gelly, regional privacy officer of ADP’s EMEA business, and Katherine Fithen, chief privacy officer of The Coca-Cola Company.

  • 2 in 3 European employees are interested in self-employment or freelancing
  • 33% of UK employees say work-life balance is a key motivating factor
  • Pay is still the ultimate driver for European employees
 
 

  LONDON, UK– April 14, 2017– European employees appear ready to embrace the gig economy, according to research by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions. The new study of nearly 10,000 European working adults reveals how employees across Europe feel about the future of work. As many as 63% of UK employees and 68% of European employees are interested in, or would consider self-employment or freelancing. The desire for this style of working does change drastically across regions (see chart 1).   Work-life balance
There are a multitude of factors playing into the increased prevalence of gig economy jobs. 28% of employees say maintaining a work-life balance is the most important factor motivating them at work, and the gig economy is typically associated with workers being able to choose their own hours. However, self-employed workers in the UK actually consider themselves to have the poorest work life balance compared to the other industries, with only 81% feeling that they have a good work life balance, compared to 84% nationally.   Despite this, those who are already self-employed report higher levels of job satisfaction (75% are satisfied vs. 70% on average). 39% of self-employed workers say that the key motivator for them is the ability to work where and when they want to, as well as having good work-life balance (30%).   The desire for flexible working locations and hours does change drastically across different demographics. For instance, wishing for complete flexibility in working hours and location increases for older workers (see chart 2), whilst the interest in a mixed form of flexibility in hours and location decreases with age (see chart 3).   Is it all about the money? Pay comes in as the most important factor in motivation and engagement (47%), so it is no surprise that many people are taking jobs in which they can choose hours and therefore income levels. However, this could also indicate that many people are joining the gig economy out of necessity, rather than choice. Jeff Phipps, Managing Director at ADP UK, says “While the gig economy brings with it many benefits for both employers and workers, such as a varied and accessible talent pool and increased control over working hours, it can also be a challenging experience. Employers may lose individuals with valuable expertise, while the workers themselves may not gain the control they had hoped, due to the fear of turning down work and not being offered it again. Employers should ensure that they are providing excellent career development opportunities and that they treat workers respectfully so that they gain their loyalty and protect their brand, while people considering a gig economy job should think carefully before embarking on a freelance basis, ensuring they have carefully weighed up the positives and negatives associated with this working style.”     Chart 1: Total number of employees interested in freelancing or self-employment - by country       Chart 2: Total number of UK employees interested in complete flexibility - by age         Chart 3: Total number of UK employees interested in some type of flexibility - by age         About the research

  • A fifth of UK workers name age as the biggest factor preventing career progression
  • Age is a particularly common obstacle among older workers (46% of over 55s)
  • Support for career development declines with age
 
 

  LONDON, UK– April 14, 2017– European employees feel that age is the biggest factor preventing them from progressing in their career, according to research of nearly 10,000 European working adults by ADP®. A fifth of employees name age as their biggest obstacle, followed by favoritism (7%), lack of opportunities with current employer (7%), qualifications (5%), and family needs (5%) (chart 1).   Age is a particularly cited obstacle in (24%), Switzerland (21%) and the UK (20%) (chart 2). This issue increases as workers get older, with 46% of over 55s and 27% of those aged 45-54 feeling this way (chart 3). This situation may reflect the increasing generational diversity of the workforce, as five generations of employees will soon be working side by side. Advancing technologies significant age differences in the workforce are likely to be isolating older workers, who may feel outdated by a younger, tech-ready generation.   Lack of support
A third of employees feel that their company doesn’t support their career development. This figure increases with age, perhaps again reflecting the position of older workers in the workplace. While 79% of 16-24-year-olds think their employer is very interested in their development, just over 60% of those older than 45 feel this way (chart 4).   At the same time, a third (32%) of employees say that the most important area where they would like support from HR teams is in providing training opportunities. The findings suggest that businesses and HR teams need to revisit how they support different demographics within their workforce to make sure that everyone receives the same level of support. This is particularly important when considering career progression and training, ensuring that all employees have the skills to succeed.   Some workers cited a lack of opportunities with their current employer as the biggest obstacle to career progression, particularly those in in Wales (11%), Northern Ireland (9%) and the North West (9%). Knowing this, it is unsurprising that nearly 15% of UK workers don’t think they will stay in their current organisation for more than a year. This lack of loyalty could be a direct result of reduced career opportunities.   Annabel Jones, HR Director at ADP UK, says “If employees feel there are barriers between them and their career goals that are outside of their control, it can be disheartening. In order to have a properly engaged and committed workforce, employers must ensure all employees are treated fairly and receive the support and recognition they deserve. Similarly, organisations need to address any generational concerns felt by employees to benefit from the value that diverse age and experience levels bring to the workplace.”   Chart 1: Top factors preventing career progression       Chart 2: Age prevents career progression – by country       Chart 3: Age prevents career progression – by age       Chart 4: Employers who support career development – by age       About the research

NelsonHall, a global business process outsourcing (BPO) and IT services analyst firm, has recognized ADP® as a “Leader” in benefits administration for the third consecutive year.
 
 

  ROSELAND, NJ  – March, 6, 2017– NelsonHall, a global business process outsourcing (BPO) and IT services analyst firm, has recognized ADP® as a “Leader” in benefits administration for the third consecutive year. NelsonHall’s Evaluation &; Assessment Tool (NEAT) evaluates vendors on two key dimensions: ability to deliver immediate benefits and ability to meet clients’ future requirements. Those companies identified in the Leaders’ quadrant, the highest category, scored well on a combination of analyst assessments and feedback from vendor clients.
When compared to 11 other benefits administration vendors in the health and welfare (H&;W) market, ADP was ranked among the top two providers. NelsonHall highlighted ADP’s ability to leverage its Strategic Advisory Services group to help clients with their benefits strategy, as well as the “tight integration and alignment” of ADP’s global payroll capabilities with its global benefits offering.
The analyst firm also recognized ADP’s user experience, which leverages consumer shopping concepts with content organized to facilitate engagement and deliver on the moments that matter to employees.
“ADP has a proven track record year over year in delivering comprehensive H&;W services to clients as part of a cohesive human capital management (HCM) experience,” said Amy Gurchensky, senior HR research analyst at NelsonHall. “In addition, ADP continues to demonstrate a strong rate of bundling multiple H&;W services together.”
ADP said it is pleased to have been recognized for its strength in benefits administration.

  LONDON, UK  – February.  28, 2017– Levels of job satisfaction vary significantly across Europe, with Dutch, Polish and Swiss employees being the most satisfied, according to research by ADP®. The new study of nearly 10,000 European working adults explores how employees across Europe feel about the future of work.   Where can we find the happiest employees?   According to the research, Dutch, Polish and Swiss employees are the most satisfied, whilst the UK comes joint fifth (see chart 1). In the UK, satisfaction levels also differ greatly across regions; three quarters of those based in the East are satisfied (75%), whilst only 59% of employees in Northern Ireland are satisfied (see chart 2).   In the UK, those working in Architecture, Engineering and Building are the most satisfied (84%), whilst IT &; Telecoms workers fare well across Europe and the UK.

(see chart 3)   Jeff Phipps, General Manager at ADP UK, commented that, “It is positive to see that satisfaction levels are generally high across Europe, suggesting that most people are engaged in their work and feel fulfilled. However, in industries and countries with lower results, it is important to act to improve the working lives of employees. Employee satisfaction has long been acknowledged to have major implications for production. Organisations must take heed to ensure their employees are happy, engaged and content in their role.”   Charts   Chart 1: Job satisfaction across Europe       Chart 2: Job satisfaction across UK regions     Chart 3: Job satisfaction across industries         About the research ‘The Workforce View in Europe 2017’ report explores the attitudes of employees toward the future of work.

  • 74% of employees in Europe would consider career opportunities abroad
  • Germany, the UK and France top the list of countries where European employees would most like to work
  • Western and Northern Europe dominate the list, making up 14 of the top 20 choices
  • UK employees least interested in working abroad
 
 

  LONDON, UK  – February.  14, 2017– European employees have a strong appetite for international work, as almost three quarters (74%) would consider other countries for career opportunities, according to research by ADP®. The new study of nearly 10,000 working adults across Europe considers how employees feel about the future of work, international competitiveness and. The survey was conducted in July 2016, after the UK referendum vote to leave the EU.   (21%), United Kingdom (15%) and France (12%) top the list of the most desirable destinations to work in, whilst North America surprisingly comes much further down the list in 12th place.   1.     2.     United Kingdom 3.     France 4.     Switzerland 5.     Austria 6.     Belgium 7.     8.     Norway 9.     Netherlands 10.  11.  Sweden 12.  North America 13.  Ireland 14.  Denmark 15.  Luxembourg 16.  Finland 17.  Portugal 18.  Russia 19.  Asia Pacific 20.  Iceland   What makes the top countries so appealing?   Despite their popularity,, the UK and France aren’t particularly strong in any of the areas measured in the survey, such as skills and development, flexible working options and stress in the workplace. In fact, according to the research, employees could have a more balanced life and interesting opportunities in countries that don’t currently rank at the top. Instead, pre-existing perceptions of the country, economic stability, distance from home country, and language skills seem to be more likely to affect preferences.   It is also likely that the UK referendum vote impacted the area considered most attractive to work. The UK was pushed into second place by despite the arguably comparable, if not better, opportunities in the UK, and English being the more widely spoken language compared with German.   UK employees least interested in working abroad   Despite the overwhelming interest in international opportunities, a quarter of employees (26%) would never consider working abroad. This increases to a staggering 42% for UK employees, second only to French employees (46%). Significantly, there is also a clear difference of opinion between genders in the UK, with 33% of men and half of all women (50%) saying they would not consider working abroad. The results also demonstrate an expected trend, with younger workers being more likely to work abroad. As many as 87% of 16-24 year olds are interested in pursuing career opportunities abroad, as opposed to 56% of over 55s.   We see major differences in the desire to work abroad across UK regions. Workers from Northern Ireland are the most likely to seek international work (91%), followed by Londoners (77%), whilst over half (55%) of those from the North East aren’t interested in it at all.   Jeff Phipps, General Manager at ADP UK, says “It is evident that Europe has an appetite for international work. With the war for talent and broadening skills gaps being key challenges across the continent, it is essential businesses consider potential ways to accommodate a more international workforce. Encouraging cross-border movement of talent, whilst employing people from diverse backgrounds, is crucial for ensuring global competitiveness. If businesses look to consider the needs of their employees and potential talent, they will reap the benefits of an engaged, optimistic and committed workforce.”   Charts   Chart 1: UK employees interested in working abroad by region     Chart 2: Most attractive countries for UK employees     About the research ‘The Workforce View in Europe 2017’ report explores the attitudes of employees toward the future of work.

  • 16-24 years olds have the least confidence in their numeracy abilities
  • UK workers twice as likely as Polish workers to feel they need better numeracy skills in their current role
 
 

  London – 5 April 2016 – UK employees are less competent in basic literacy and numeracy skills than their European counterparts, pan-European research of more than 11,000 employees by ADP reveals. 11.6% of UK workers feel that they need more training in numeracy, while 14.3% would like to develop their written communication skills – falling behind the European average (8.8% and 13.5% respectively).   The issue is particularly pronounced among younger employees who – despite often having more recently left education – are also more likely to feel less confident with these skills compared to their older colleagues. One in five 16–24 year olds (20.5%) feel they are in need of improved literacy. Similarly, they are also far more likely to feel they need improved numeracy skills. (Tables 1 and 2)   The findings are consistent with the most recent OECD PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) results on mathematics and reading, with and Netherlands holding top positions, while the UK, and rank lowest. Employees in the UK feel more than twice as likely as those from to improve their numeracy skills (11.6% as opposed to 5.4%). However, the UK does not fair the worst in Europe, with (12.3%) and (11.9%) feeling the most in need of help with their numeracy ability. (Table 3)   Annabel Jones, HR Director at ADP UK, commented: “It is important that UK employees feel confident in basic workplace skills, even though they may feel nervous about admitting they need help. However, the scale of the problem, as shown in this research, means they should take comfort in the fact that they are not alone. Organisations should address their employees’ individual training needs, as this will help both the employee and the employer. Instead of only focusing on job-specific competencies, employers should look to ensure their workforce is fully competent at work.’   Mike Ellicock, Chief Executive of National Numeracy, said “Numeracy is involved in so many tasks in the workplace, from using technology to planning and time management. So helping employees with their numeracy skills can improve performance in a range of areas - and benefit productivity too.”   About the research   The findings are based on primary research by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions. The sample consisted of 11,257 working adults across eight economies in Europe, including 1,500 employees in the UK. The research for ADP was carried out by independent market research agency Opinion Matters in July 2015.

feel of the environment.  Our new benefits solution from ADP meets employees where they want to be met – in the office, on the network, at home or on the road.”   Seeing substantial value like this is precisely why ADP continues to drive innovation, said Mark Benjamin, president of the Global Enterprise Solutions business at ADP.   “When we reimagined our user experience, our goal was to make benefits enrollment as easy as sending flowers to a close friend,” Benjamin explained.  “We know that for many families, benefits selection is a critical financial decision.  We felt there had to be a better way to help employees make the best choice for themselves and their families.  We analyzed where people struggled, and what they needed.  Then, through the application of user experience design we transformed the enrollment experience to be simple and fun to use.     “Our development efforts were influenced by talking to clients like EMC,” Benjamin continued.  “In their case, we didn’t stop at designing a better user experience for them, we worked with them to use our APIs to better integrate with their IT systems.”   Not only did EMC employees save time, but the improvements also significantly reduced the number of calls to its help center.   ”Together,EMC and ADP delivered on ashared commitment to driveinnovation in our businesses and our strategichip,” Close explained.  “We were able to demonstrate that with EMC’s 2016 open enrollment process.   “The level of collaboration during development and deployment was incredibly important to the end result,” he continued.  “Access to ADP’s APIs allowed us to participate in and influence design.  ADP also worked with our network of vendors to facilitate development of a single sign-on process that compressed three steps into one.  The end result was excellent.  What had previously appeared to our employees as three separate environments became a single, seamless experience.”   Upgrading its benefits user experience was a natural next step for EMC.  While the company already used ADP's outsourcing services in North America, as well as ADP’s global payroll solution to serve employees in more than 45 countries, it was the most recent opportunity to collaborate on, jointly innovate, and influence its benefits solution that led to the new initiative.   “Our former system was in need of a user-friendly interface to help employees make informed decisions,” said Close.  “The work ADP was doing through its ADP Innovation Lab® was really interesting and, after looking at the direction ADP was taking nearly one year ago, we saw there was a better way to deliver open-enrollment services to employees.”   “EMC’s strategic relationship with ADP has continually delivered significant value to our employees,” Close continued.  “The two-way nature of the relationship continues to drive innovation that benefits both businesses.  By opening its development ecosystem, ADP has enabled EMC to leverage the best available technology to provide employees with a world-class enrollment experience.”   Collaborating with system developers is commonplace for ADP, which gives ADP® Marketplace clients, partner companies and applications developers access to its APIs through a secure cloud platform.  By accessing ADP's APIs, companies can enhance data-sharing capabilities across their enterprise applications with a single set of workforce data – all done in real time and bi-directionally.  This enables them to automate a variety of workforce management tasks that were previously manually managed across multiple platforms.   “We’re delighted that EMC recognizes the value that ADP’s people and solutions can deliver to its employees, and look forward to continuing a productive, innovative, and strategic relationship,” ADP’s Benjamin said.  “ADP is proud of the longstanding strategichip we’ve built with a global IT leader like EMC.”   About ADP    Powerful technology plus a human touch.

UK employees are more convinced than their European counterparts that automation, smart machines and artificial intelligence will replace people for repetitive work, according to the 2016 ADP Research Institute Evolution of Work study.  
 
 

London, UK – 15 March 2016 –  The global report of over 2,400 employees and employers across 13 countries found that almost half (47%) of European employees believe that improvements in technology and automation will replace people for repetitive work. UK employees are the most confident in Europe that machines will replace the work of people, with 55% believing so, in comparison to just 30% in.   The increased reliance on technology will accelerate the requirement for employees to shift roles, and nearly four in ten workers across Europe feel they will have to learn new skills as a result. In addition, employers are confident that technology will be used to measure and impact employee wellbeing, with approximately 60% of businesses across Europe feeling this way. In fact, 39% of UK employers believe technology will enable organisations to adjust the performance of individuals and teams, as well as improve their performance (38%).   Despite its disruptive nature, 37% of UK employees are advocates for technology, believing it will enable deeper personal connections across distance and time.In fact, over half (54%) feel that they will primarily rely on self-service to solve problems and get their job doneand35% go as far to say people will use technology to learn anything, anywhere at any time.   Annabel Jones, HR Director at ADP UK, says: “Technology is hugely beneficial to the workplace. It not only enables employers to better cater to the many needs and desires of staff, but also facilities more efficient work for employees.   “Employers should ensure they are not over reliant on technology and still build a human connection with their employees, offering an adequate amount of workplace support and encouragement. This way, employees will be able to efficiently carry out their roles using technology provided for them, but will also feel engaged as they interact with – and are supported by – their employer”.   “Technological and cultural shifts have always pushed workplace innovation forward, but today an even faster global transformation is underway, and employers must take notice,” said Dermot O’Brien, chief human resources officer, ADP. “To advance business goals – and remain competitive – employers must allow for flexibility, underscore that technology is supporting, not hindering, career fulfillment and provide ways to cultivate personal interests while still driving the mission of the company.”   The complete Evolution of Work study can be found at http://bit.ly/1ZokWOK     About ADP    Powerful technology plus a human touch.

  • 88% of UK employees experience regular stress at work
  • Demand for a better work-life balance and flexible working on the rise
     
 
 

London, UK – 28 January 2016 – Excessive stress threatens the wellbeing of employees across the UK, with 88% of workers regularly experiencing stress at work, according to research by ADP®.   Nearly half (43%) of UK employees go further to say that stress is a constant factor in their roles and that they feel stressed ‘often’ or ‘very often’. In fact, just 12% of employees feel that they never experience workplace stress. Encouragingly, 79% of UK workers feel that their employer is trying to help them manage stress levels.   Annabel Jones, HR Director at ADP UK, commented: “Some level of stress is part of most jobs and, at its best, can make work more dynamic. However, excessive and frequent stress is one of the biggest threats to a modern workforce, affecting staff morale, productivity and efficiency. Businesses should therefore be alert of how their workforce is feeling and ensure their well-being is maintained.”   In search of work-life balance   This stress awareness could be explained by the drive for holistic wellbeing. Mindfulness and ‘work with purpose’ have made their way up the corporate agenda, emerging as key tools supporting employee engagement. Interestingly, 31% of employees in the UK perceive a good work-life balance as the top motivating factor at work. This is followed by the ability to work when and where they want (29%) and employee benefits that look after long term financial welfare (24%).   With this in mind, it is perhaps unsurprising that employees are eager to move away from the traditional ‘9-5’ working pattern. 36% would like a mixture of flexible and fixed hours, but another 37% would like to adopt a totally flexible working pattern.   Leon Vergnes, Senior Vice President EMEA, at ADP, commented: “Over the past few years, we have seen employee attitudes toward work-life balance and the quality of life shift dramatically. We believe this is more than just a passing trend, and employee desires are really affecting how companies operate. The appetite for flexible working opportunities is on the rise, and we also expect to see an increasing demand for employee benefits that support health and wellbeing. Employers must ensure that they can respond to these demands and have the support and technology in place to make the change possible.”   For more insights, please read ‘The Workforce View in Europe 2015/16’ report found at http://bit.ly/1SHXSKc.   About the research   The findings are based on primary research by ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions. ‘The Workforce View in Europe 2015/16’ is the fourth annual barometer exploring the attitudes of employees toward the future of work. The research for ADP was carried out by independent market research agency Opinion Matters in July 2015.

HR professionals are starting to plan for the year ahead  
 
 

London, UK – 17 December 2015 – As 2015 draws to a close, HR professionals are starting to plan for the year ahead. Recent pan-European research from ADP® has identified five key trends that are going to impact the rapidly changing world of work in 2016.
 

  1. Employee optimism is increasing across Europe
    77% of European workers are now optimistic about the future of work, setting businesses up for a strong start to 2016. UK employees are the most optimistic about the future at 81% – up from 77% in 2014 and just 64% in 2013. Key reasons for this optimism include increasing job security (38%), growing career opportunities (27%) and having the right training (27%). HR must now consider how they can capture this enthusiasm and ensure it translates into business success.
     

  2. The rise of the five-generation workforce
    For the first time in history, five generations of employees are working side by side, meaning HR must be prepared for the potential challenges this may bring to the workplace. In fact, 67% of employees say that they are encountering intergenerational issues in the workplace as a result of the widening age gap. However, 39% of employees are concerned about losing knowledge as their older colleagues retire, implying that succession planning should be top of the HR agenda in 2016.
     

  3. Competition extends beyond borders
    Global competition for business and talent is going to intensify in 2016. Half of businesses across Europe are prepared to compete internationally, with UK employees (58%) the most confident in their organisations’ position in the global economy. A crucial factor for maintaining competitiveness is the ability to attract and retain top talent. On the other hand, a lack of fresh talent entering the organisation (51%),ment cuts (47%) and talent drain to other businesses (46%) have been identified by employees as the top threats facing businesses next year.”
     

  4. Employee engagement is top of the agenda
    Employee engagement has made its way firmly into the HR language over the last few years, however, continued work in this area is needed. Only a fifth (22%) of European employees describe themselves as very engaged in their roles. Worryingly, the UK has the lowest level of very engaged employees – just 17%. For employees, the key motivators, beyond pay, are a good work-life balance (29%), the ability to work flexibly (26%), and having a diverse and fast-moving role (24%).
     

  5. The workplace goes hi-techWorkplace technology has developed at pace, enabling businesses to be more connected and efficient, while opening up new opportunities HR to cater to the workforce. Encouragingly, 8 in 10 employees now have technology to help them do their job. HR must stay on top of the latest technology developments to ensure their workforce has access to the best tools to fulfil their potential for the business. The most common workplace tools currently are:
  • Laptop (47%)
  • Specialist software (36%)
  • Mobile or smartphone (27%)

  • Two thirds of UK employees are experiencing intergenerational conflict at work
  • 94% of UK workers feel that younger generations are armed with the skills to succeed
  • 39% of employees are concerned about losing talent and knowledge as workers retire
  • Only one in ten businesses plan to employ retired employees as consultants
     
 
 

London, UK – 03 December 2015 – Two thirds (65%) of UK employees are experiencing intergenerational conflict at work, according to new research by ADP®. For the first time in history, five generations of employees are working side by side, with consultants in their eighties serving alongside fresh talent in their teens. However,the pan-European study of 11,000 working adults reveals that the 65-year age gap can lead to conflict in the workplace.   Generational conflict is primarily caused by:

  1. Younger and older employees having differing views on how things should be done (19%)
  2. Older workers working for longer leaving less room for new talent (18%)
  3. Differing approaches to organisationalvalues and corporate responsibility (18%)
Interestingly, younger workers seem to be finding it more difficult to cope with age diversity. While 16% of younger employees feel that their ageing management is out of touch with modern trends, a further 15% think older workers are resistant to change. However, 94% of older UK workers feel that younger generations are armed with the skills to be successful in their role. Similarly, only 12% of employees say that older workers perceive younger talent entering leadership positions as a threat.   Despite their differences, 39% of employees are anxious about losing talent and knowledge as older workers retire. Nevertheless, only 1 in 10 businesses plan to employ retired employees as consultants.   Fueled by the aging population across Europe, differences in generational values, working styles and skills are becoming more evident. The issues are particularly prominent in (77%), (73%) and (73%), compared to 67% of employees across Europe.   Annabel Jones, HR Director at ADP UK, commented, “Diversity is one of the greatest assets to a business. While millennials bring new ways of working and a fresh set of skills to the workplace, older workers have rich and invaluable experience. It is concerning to see how much conflict the age gap can cause in UK businesses. Organisations must consider how they can mitigate these issues to enable them to engage with, and harness the full potential of each age group.”   Leon Vergnes, Senior Vice President EMEA at ADP, said, “ADP research shows generational conflict is widespread across Europe. Employees need to be aware of, and respond to, potential differences when working with their colleagues and clients. This is particularly important for multinational businesses, as they need to be mindful of age diversity in addition to issues such as cultural differences or language barriers. Organisationsmust help their employees address concerns in order to benefit from the value that diversity brings to the workplace”.   The ADP ‘Workforce View in Europe 2015/16’ includes more insights, sourced from 11,000 European employees.

Three new clients for ADP's online managed solutions.
 
 

  LONDON, UK  – July 28, 2014 - ADP®, a leading global provider of Human Capital Management (HCM) solutions, has won three new clients for it’s online, managed solutions. Yours Clothing, Azolve UK and Yankee Candle have chosen ADP for its client-focused service and wealth of experience as an HCM provider.   Yours Clothing Ltd. Yours Clothing Ltd. has selected ADP to deliver its employee screening solution, ADP Backcheck. With an aggressive growth programme to open new shops and an ever-increasing workforce, Yours Clothing was seeking a partner who could implement an accessible online-hosted solution. Liz Elstrub, HR Manager at Yours Clothing, said: “The growth of the company means that numbers of employees is increasing rapidly. It was for this reason that we sought a partner, who could help us ensure we hired the right employees to help us move the business forward. Our employees are currently spread across 38 sites so we required an online, real-time solution. We are confident that the BackCheck solution will save our HR team significant amounts of both staff and time dependent resources, allowing us instead to focus on value adding activities.”   Azolve UK Azolve UK has selected ADP to replace its in-house payroll system with a fully managed solution. After outsourcing its payroll function to ADP in theA, the administrative solutions company built on this overseas relationship, partnering with ADP to implement a similar payroll solution in the UK. David Pring, CEO and Founder of Azolve UK, said: “Seeing what ADP could do for our business in theA encouraged us to seek a partner in the UK that could deliver the same level of service. ADP demonstrated that its fully managed solution would be the perfect replacement of our in-house system, creating a truly global relationship across our payroll function.”   Yankee Candle Yankee Candle wanted to replace its old-fashioned and inefficient payroll and HR system to meet the needs of its rapidly expanding business. Implementing ADP freedom has revolutionised its HR, bringing improved accuracy and control, while leaving the HR team free to concentrate on adding value to the business. Rachel Merrett, Financial Controller at Yankee Candle, said: “The managed service eradicates the need to manually input employee data – something that was becoming increasingly difficult with our expanding workforce. Empowering staff to control their own data, including holiday bookings, through self-service is another way in which time has been freed up, meaning that the in-house team can focus on activities which add value to the overall business goals.”   David Foskett, Managing Director, at ADP UK, said: “Our latest new client wins show ADP’s dedication to helping HR and payroll departments to prove their value to overall business goals. With rapid expansions and global relationships, our clients sought a partner, who could provide accessible solutions and reduce administration. We are delighted to have been identified as the Human Capital Management (HCM) partner of choice and are looking forward to developing these relationships further.”     About ADP (NASDAQ-ADP) Powerful technology plus a human touch.
