What Makes You Stay at Your Job?
According to Harvard Business Review, two reasons why employees stay at their companies are job satisfaction and the company environment.
Why does it matter that we understand both? At ADP, we strive to give our associates a culture where they want to stay. It’s great to love what you do, but even better if you do it in a place that you love.
Meet Lindsey B., Sales Channel Manager for ADP Marketplace in Northern Europe. She shares her incredible transcontinental career journey, the power of networking, and how ADP supported her career progression on our Life@ADP Season Two podcast.
We are excited to kick off our season with an international episode! You can expect to hear stories from associates across the globe. Lindsey’s story started when her aunt referred her to work at ADP. She began her career in San Francisco, moved to the UK, and is now in the Netherlands.
“As a Sales Channel Manager for ADP Marketplace, I work with our partners and internal sales teams across multiple countries,” Lindsey said. “I used my strengths and networking opportunities and learned from different teams with ADP’s support.”
Lindsey travels across Europe, working with product development and sales teams across the UK, Netherlands, and Ireland. When we asked her our “why come, why stay?” question, she said she came to ADP for the training and stayed for the people. “The more I move to different countries in different roles, the smaller and more intimate ADP becomes. I work with a group of wonderful people who develop innovative products and business solutions,” Lindsey said. “Every time I turn a corner, I feel like there’s a new job opportunity in a new part of ADP coming, bringing together different people.”
Lindsey describes ADP as an incredibly diverse company with teams of people from all backgrounds and cultures. As a leader, she highlights the importance of letting every associate come to work as themselves, which makes the workplace fun and creative.
Lindsey is on the committee for her local International Women’s Network (iWIN) in the UK and Ireland, one of ADP’s Business Resource Groups (BRG), which organized some events for International Women’s Day, including coffee connections networking opportunities. “We hosted various career progression events and talked to the HR business partners, identifying biases at work while inspiring attendees to grow their career at ADP,” Lindsey said.
Lindsey encourages everyone to keep an open mind in their career journeys, especially in exploring international opportunities and working outside their comfort zones. “If you can identify your strengths and what you enjoy doing, there is absolutely a job for you at ADP. I encourage everyone to listen to the podcast to check out what we do and whom we hire,” Lindsey said. “I’m happy to connect if you’d like to learn more about my journey and the culture! Feel free to reach out to me on LinkedIn.”
