    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.

    2019 EWS - Workplace Transformation: Navigating the New Normal

    Not since the advent of the Industrial Revolution has the workplace undergone greater transformation than it has in the last 25 years. Beyond the not insignificant impacts of economics, technology and demographics, the workplace is influenced by the rising power of workers whose demands have gone well beyond traditional concerns about pay and benefits, work/life balance and community outreach. Business leaders today must address new questions relating to ethics, transparency, diversity and inclusion, purpose-driven business initiatives and more. Amid a continuously shrinking pool of talent, employers need new approaches as they face an ever-widening array of challenges in how to effectively recruit, engage and retain the talent they need to grow and prosper.

    • Why shifts in where and how work is performed can influence corporate culture, communications and collaboration
    • How to boost the value of an employer brand and create a strategic talent advantage through new approaches in areas such as training and development, community outreach and diversity and inclusion
    • What drives optimal levels of employee engagement and retention
    • What strategies are needed for combating high levels of turnover expected over the next 12 months
    • How to find and retain skilled talent—the top two challenges of HR leaders today
