“Me” vs. “We”: Employers are Unaware that More Than Half of Their Employees Are Open to Leaving

Ahu Yildirmaz, Ph.D. Vice President, ADP Research Institute

The labor market is tightening, wages are on the rise, and while employers may have had the upper-hand in the past, a distinct shift is underway. Employees are now calling the shots. What does this mean for employers and how they attract, retain and engage talent? The ADP Research Institute® (ADPRI) commissioned a new survey to find out. From the results, ADP® developed two papers, “Evolution of Work 2.0; The Me vs. We Mindset,” and “Fixing the Talent Management Disconnect: Employer Perception vs. Employee Reality in the U.S. Midsized Market,” which found employees tend to concentrate on their work environment, look for meaning in their job, and want immediate advancement opportunities (the “me” mindset). Whereas, employers tend to focus on bigger picture areas like financial performance, reputation, and long-term career pathing (the “we” mindset). A strengthening economy opens doors According to the ADP® Workforce Vitality Report, job switching is at an all-time high with about 27 percent of U.S. workers changing jobs on an annual basis.

5 Ways for Employers to Put Diversity and Inclusion into Action

Rita Mitjans, Chief Diversity & Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

As we saw in the Q1 2017 ADP Workforce Vitality Report® and explained in USA Today, people can switch jobs more easily than ever, placing added pressure on employers to tune into workforce demands beyond salary and benefits. Current trends indicate that job searchers are choosing employers based on who they are as an organization and what they stand for, including diversity and inclusion efforts, corporate social responsibility, career mentorship and other dimensions that weren’t always considered fundamental to doing business.

In fact, according to Glassdoor®, “Data Scientist” ranked as the best job in America in 2017 for the second year in a row.
