ADP’s latest “Global Workplace Study 2020

By |2020-10-06T11:32:53-04:00October 6th, 2020|Categories: Uncategorized|

For those of you interested in Employee Engagement and Workplace Resilience, I highly recommend ADP’s latest, “Global Workplace Study 2020”.

“This Global Workplace Study, for the first time, combines Engagement Pulse with a new instrument, the ADPRI Workplace Resilience Scale. With these two instruments, ADP set out to examine:

• The global level of Engagement in 2020

• The global level of Workplace Resilience in 2020

• The drivers of Engagement and Workplace Resilience

• How workplaces have changed around the world, and how likely those changes are to endure”

U.S. – China Relations: Cooperation, Competition, or Collision?

I have attended several webinars on US-China relations over the last week and this was the best. David Morey moderated the program and it was illuminating. If you are doing business with China or working with Chinese suppliers, I encourage you to watch it.
