    The Emerging Workforce® Study (EWS) by Spherion Staffing annually examines the issues and trends impacting the American workplace. Conducted by Research Now, it is the only nationally representative survey of both employers and employees. Since 1996, Spherion has interviewed more than 200,000 workers and hundreds of companies to reveal new insights and impacts that employers need to be aware of to make the right decisions for their business and their employees.

    2018 EWS: The New American Workforce

    This year’s study confirms that changes happening in the make-up of the American workforce are here to stay. Temporary, freelance and contract workers comprise almost one-third of U.S. companies’ total workforces this year — an increase of more than 90 percent over last year. The new American workforce reflects different attitudes and opinions about how we work. The impacts are evident across a number of new trends and topics, including:

    • The Agile Workforce
    • Top Employer Concerns
    • Retention Risks
    • Talent Shortage & Skills Gap
    • Recruiting 2.0
    • Wages & Compensation
    • Technology & Automation
    • Diversity at Work
    • Methodology
