The Emerging Workforce Study
Forging Ahead: Workplace Strategies for New Time
The economic meltdown of 2008 was a game-changer that will have lasting influences on our financial, housing and yes, our labor markets. Workers’ opinions about their career and workplace have evolved, perhaps now more dramatically. How employers attract and retain talent in an era of social media, e-recruiting and employer branding, while the supply of qualified workers will once again dwindle, is difficult to ascertain.
For 12 years, the Emerging Workforce Study has provided unmatched insight into the changing attitudes of workers and the implications for those who employ them. This year is no exception. Backed by renowned polling firm Harris Interactive, the Emerging Workforce Study unearths significant workplace trends in the context of ongoing social and economic events.
The 2009 Emerging Workforce Study has revealed one fact with clarity – alongside broad adjustments in lending, borrowing, taxes and even our nation’s global standing… key workplace strategies are too being rebuilt for a new time.
