The first peak of the coronavirus pandemic reshuffled the priorities of both large and small companies. The result: smooth, efficient payroll calculation and payment is now by far the top concern for HR departments in 8 out of 11 countries all over Europe, according to a survey run by SD Worx, a leading European payroll and HR services provider. Within that context, the vast majority prefer to keep their payroll in-house, and paying only fixed salaries remains the go-to option, despite an increasing demand for more flexibility.
Research shows that the majority of employees takes pride in the work they are currently doing. The Belgians and the Dutch score highest with 80% followed by the Dutch employees with 70.7% and the British and the Germans are close behind with roughly 64%. 57.1% of French people take pride in their job. The survey was conducted by payroll & HR services provider SD Worx and the Antwerp Management School in the first quarter of 2020, before the COVID-19 crisis.
Payroll and HR service provider SD Worx has announced its results for the first half of 2020. SD Worx is an essential partner for its customers in an economic climate that is really suffering due to the coronavirus crisis. By adopting a strong emphasis on cost control, SD Worx has succeeded in maintaining its results.
Employees generally take a positive view when new technologies are rolled out in the workplace. Employees regard modernisation efforts as new opportunities to advance their career. In Belgium, this is even the case for 47 percent of employees, while about one third of employees in the Netherlands (32.3%), France (31.5%) and the UK (30.7%) and about one quarter of employees in Germany (25.9%) would agree with this. At the same time, it was found to have a positive impact on the stress they face in the workplace. These are the result of a large-scale survey conducted by payroll and HR services provider SD Worx in collaboration with the Antwerp Management School among 3,870 white-collar workers from Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
