This recent study shows that the APAC region is growing rapidly, with nearly one-half of respondents anticipating their use of freelancers will increase in the next 24 months. The use of freelancers over the prior two years also increased, as nearly a quarter of respondents reported an increase during that time.
This is the first in a series of HRO Today Flash Reports. These reports discuss the results of research and editorial papers that address today’s topics of interest in the HR community. The first area examined in this series is Growth of Freelancers and Best Practices on How to Attract Them. This study was sponsored by Allegis Global Solutions.
What else did the study discover and how can you best attract the growing number of freelancers? Find out by downloading the report now:
Communicating, recruiting and managing the millennial generation is among the most pressing issues in the business community.
The primary reason is their numbers—the millennial generation, generally defined as those between 18 and 34, already accounts for approximately 50 million workers in the U.S., or 25 percent of the workforce, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
That number will increase substantially in the next five to 10 years. Understanding and communicating with this group properly will be a competitive advantage.
Because most large companies have locations worldwide, the need to quickly access international employment levels and trends has never been greater. Worldwide employment rates vary greatly, so incorporating this component of workforce planning is vital to a company’s worldwide staffing strategy.
To accomplish this, PeopleScout is partnering with HRO Today to produce a quarterly summary of international unemployment metrics for key countries in North America, Latin America, EMEA and APAC. This report is the snapshot for the fourth quarter of 2016 and also encompasses the full-year report.
Talent matters to the success of an organisation, and talent acquisition professionals on the front lines are seeing the war for talent heating up.
That’s because the war for talent has actually become a war for engagement, and talent pooling is a crucial way to improve engagement and the candidate experience.
Today’s market requires talent acquisition professionals to build relationships with candidates far earlier in the process, so that candidates become immediately engaged and solid relationships are already in place when vacancies arise.
Engaged candidates then move on to become engaged employees, and Allegis Global Solutions (AGS) has been on the cutting edge of talent-pool development for their clients across EMEA and the globe. They have thought leaders with lots of key insights necessary to successfully create and use talent pools.
The Worker Confidence Index increased between the second and third quarters of 2016, driven by a slight increase in confidence and trust in leadership.
These results indicate a positive trend over the last year. Three out of four indices increased since last year’s third quarter results. The likelihood of promotion index declined only slightly by 0.1 percent.
Job security has remained relatively consistent over the past year, and women continue to report higher levels of confidence in their job security than men. The liklihood of a raise decreased slightly when compared to last year, and minorities are growing more confident in their job security.
