With business as usual upended across the globe, it’s no wonder that both employers and workers are rethinking established norms and attempting to attempt to rapid changes. Against the backdrop of a continuing pandemic crisis, ADP Research Institute’s People at Work 2021: A Global Workforce View explores workers’ attitudes toward business and their jobs — and what they desire from the workplace of the future.
The survey covers more than 32,000 workers in 17 countries around the world, including nearly 9,000 gig economy workers.
Here are a few key findings:
- Worker optimism has fallen slightly, though still 86 percent of people surveyed said they are optimistic about the next five years in the workplace.
- Ten percent of global workers spend at least 20 hours per week working remotely, which has doubled from pre-pandemic levels. North American and APAC workers are the most likely to spend considerable time working remotely.
- Nearly three in four essential workers have had to cope with late payroll or payments.
