Advancement opportunities are among the top 3 drivers of loyalty among hourly workers. Workers want to learn new skills to reach their goals.
From January through March 2023, more than 29,000 respondents anonymously shared what matters most to them when seeking work, what employers can do to earn their loyalty, and more. This 17th year of the study provides a unique archive of qualitative and quantitative data on emerging trends and changing workforce priorities over time.
In addition to its annual Voice of the American Workforce Survey, Employbridge also helps close the skills gap across America’s supply chain by providing free, career-focused skills development courses to its temporary associates as well as personal development courses through the Better WorkLife Academy and Life Skills Studio. Approximately 20,000 temporary associates are enrolled annually. Employbridge is majority-owned by certain investment funds managed directly or indirectly by Apollo Global Management, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates.
