SD Worx wins international Customer Experience award

Antwerp, 21 November 2018. HR service provider SD Worx has won a customer orientation award in the Business Change or Transformation category. The award was presented by the Customer Experience Professionals Association (CXPA). Customer orientation has been a priority for SD Worx for many years. In 2015, the organisation summed up its customer vision for the SME segment in three words: simple, specific and promise. SD Worx set up the Mindcraft project to turn that promise into a reality. The result is that three quarters of SME customers currently give SD Worx a score of nine out of ten, which equates to a 49% increase since the start of Mindcraft.

Mind the reward gap! Almost half of European employees want a flexible rewards package - yet only one fifth currently have control

Brussels, 16 October 2018 - With flexible working on the rise employees are seeking more influence and flexibility over all aspects of their professional lives, including their reward packages. Almost half (49%) of European workers want the ability to control their benefits and determine the composition of their reward package. However this option isn’t being taken into account by businesses, as the vast majority of employers (81%) still have complete control over their employees’ remuneration. These results come from the latest survey conducted across six European countries by the Payroll & HR services provider SD Worx, which also examined the benefits that workers would like to prioritise the most.
