    Emerging Workforce Study Presentation by Spherion

    Since 1997, we have been tracking worker mindsets and trends through our pioneering study of the Emerging Workforce. The ninth edition of this study leverages 20 years of groundbreaking research to track changing attitudes and expectations of today’s workers and uncover the strategies that will help companies attract/recruit top talent, engage/retain their workforce, build leadership and plan for future talent needs, and transform employees into brand advocates. This study examines:

    • The latest trends in how workers find jobs, what factors influence their employment decisions, and the growing role of social employer branding in today’s recruitment landscape.
    • Growing importance of employee engagement for companies, and what factors workers feel will keep them more engaged.
    • Continued disconnect between companies and their workers when it comes to key retention drivers, and what practices/programs are most effective in building attrition.
    • Demographic shifts and the implications for succession and talent planning initiatives, including insight into the two most critical generations to companies today – Gen Y and Gen Z.
    • Why companies must leverage internal employees and customers as brand advocates, and the workplace aspects that greatly influence their propensity to fill that role.
    • Effective strategies to become an employer of choice, and what today’s Emergent companies are doing to win the intensifying battle for talent.

    With 20 years of rich data from almost a quarter of a million workers and hundreds of companies, Spherion has uniquely deep insights into what is happening within the U.S. workforce and the impact on employers. Through this continuous, in-depth study of America at work, Spherion delivers organizations better intelligence to make informed decisions.
