Understand your workforce

It’s fascinating to see just how far the workplace has come. In 1997, the Emerging Workforce Study was the first to identify three types of workers—emergent, traditional, and migrating—and the values and beliefs that define their work style. This revolutionary way of viewing the workforce uncovered substantial insights about how to effectively recruit, manage, and retain them. Since then, each annual study expanded upon the previous one to provide trending data that paints a detailed portrait of the American workforce. It’s the only national representative survey of both employers and employees, reflecting the opinions of 225,000+ workers and thousands of companies over the life of the study.
