DCR TrendLine – January 2016

DCR Trendline January 2016Hello 2016! As we gear up to start a fresh year, the editorial staff at DCR TrendLine is excited to share our analysis and insights into the non-employee workforce market. The January edition examines hiring expectations and employment trends for 2016, the growing gig economy and the changing American workforce. We’re also looking at the high costs associated with offering low wages and the top skills workers need that are seemingly unrelated to the job. This month’s industry highlight focuses on one of the fastest growing sectors – wind energy. Our feature article discusses how companies can leverage social media for sourcing, relationship building, and engagement.

The DCR TrendLine editorial staff, along with everyone at DCR Workforce, would like to extend our wishes to you for a happy and successful year ahead. Happy New Year!

Note: Metrics usually vary from company to company and there are several statistics and trends delivered on employment, labor etc. by different services. However, a holistic approach to category management when it comes to workforce as well as the ability to generate trends which provide actionable information has been hard to find. Management would be benefited by a view that first allows them to pick a category and the spend, workforce, headcount and usage in all different aspects for that category.
