Total Workforce Index 2017
The Total Workforce Index (2017) is a comprehensive workforce analysis tool that allows organizations to determine the relative ease of sourcing, hiring and retaining workforce skills in competing labor markets around the world.
In 2013, ManpowerGroup Solutions’ Contingent Workforce Index was developed to provide an in-depth review of the global contingent labor market. Initially focused exclusively on the contingent workforce across 75 markets, the Contingent Workforce Index addressed half of the talent landscape. With the surge of employers committed to global workforce management and integrated workforce programs, the annual index has evolved in 2017 to include the total workforce. The total workforce consists of the permanent and contingent workforces, along with the subset of contingent identified as the informal workforce.
The segmented views of the global workforce provided by the Total Workforce Index enable organizations to easily benchmark their own workforce mix and cost efficiency across global operations. For the first time, employers have one resource that provides a global perspective on gender diversity, millennial impact, informal (gig) workforce participation and the gap between permanent and contingent workers from one market to the next.
