London, UK, 27 May 2020 - A new survey by CASS Business School, IESE Business School and HR Service Provider SD Worx reveals that two thirds (65%) of British employees are working remotely during the lockdown. Almost half (47%) had never worked remotely before the COVID-19 crisis. The research focussed on salaried white-collar workers and covered six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK.
Olympic champion Anna van der Breggen and her colleague Chantal Blaak have extended their contract with the Boels-Dolmans cycling team and will therefore continue to part of the team with SD Worx as the new main sponsor. Van der Breggen will continue to be active as a rider in 2021 and will again focus on the Olympic Games in Tokyo next year. In the three years that follow she will continue to be involved with the team as a team leader/coach. Blaak will be riding for the team that wears the colours of SD Worx until the spring of 2022, and will then also join the team leader's car until the end of 2024.
SD Worx announces the acquisition of Adessa Group, a technology consulting firm offering HR software in the cloud and associated services. The acquisition underpins SD Worx' growth and innovation strategy and will help organisations in their transformation towards efficient HR processes and a digital workplace. This challenge is now more relevant than ever before for many employers.
