The ADP Research Institute® has long believed that a human-centric framework is essential to understanding workplace change. Often our research reveals differences between how employees and employers view a particular issue and change is one of the places where we often see interesting and different perspectives. Employers take a long-term view and consider change as positive, while employees tend to be wary of changes and are concerned about how it will impact them, even if it is something they want.

Our latest research on the Evolution of Pay uncovered a similar disconnect with regard to the payment landscape. This survey was conducted with nearly 7,000 employers and employees across the globe to assess how they view pay, what’s important, how payment methods are changing and what the future might look like.
