Confidence Abounds

2019 finished strong in terms of worker confidence.

By Larry Basinait

At the end of 2019, the Worker Confidence Index (WCI) increased by a robust 7.1 points compared to one year ago. This suggests that workers remain confident with their employment status compared to historical standards, despite a small decline of 2.5 points from the third quarter.  For the year, three of the four indices—likelihood of a promotion, likelihood of a raise of at least 3 percent, and trust in company leadership—increased by at least 6 points.

Today’s workforce continues to evolve and look much different than it did not too long ago. With the onset of remote work, the gig economy, and the demands of the millennial generation, it’s rare to find a company comprised of only a traditional, permanent workforce. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the domestic contingent workforce is a staggering 6 million workers. Organizations are using contingent workers for a number of reasons, but the most essential are to fill needed skill sets, increase flexibility, and save costs. So how do organizations manage these workers?

Real-time Risk Mitigation

Background screening remains a critical step in the hiring process.

By Larry Basinait

Today, improving candidate experience is a major driving force in the hiring process—and a solid background screening approach is a critical step to ensuring that job seekers are satisfied. Candidates are looking for a process that is transparent and offers real-time updates on a mobile platform. While new research from HRO Today finds that 75 percent of job seekers ranked overall performance as “good” or “excellent,” there is room for background screening partners to improve the perception of how well they deliver their services. Where can improvements be made?
