The workplace of the future is arriving now. Changes in technology, culture, and economies are having an impact on the way people work at all levels around the world.
These changes have affected both the way employees engage with one another and the tools they use to get their jobs done. While these shifts may vary across geographic location, industry, or position, there is no doubt that employers and employees must adapt as quickly as these changes are taking place.
In order to understand how workplace trends are impacting the workplace, ADP Research Institute® (ADP RI) conducted an original qualitative and quantitative study among employers and employees in four major regions: North America, Europe, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific. This research provided insight not only into understanding emerging workplace trends but also the needs of employees. This approach provides a more long-term view than simply reviewing trends as they are developing today, and it also anticipates and addresses the new frontier of the global workplace.
