17.5 million American workers will reportedly miss work the day after Super Bowl LIV – making Monday, Feb. 3, the largest-ever anticipated day of Super Bowl Fever since The Workforce Institute at Kronos began tracking this phenomenon in 2005.
We've polled our board members - as we've done every year for over a decade- to generate our annual global workforce predictions. Please read, enjoy, and let us know your reactions.
Here we reveal our top viewed posts and other things we're proud of at the Workforce Institute in 2019. Here's what caught your fancy during this turbulent year.
The International Public Management Association for Human Resources (IPMA-HR) recently conducted a study focused on employee engagement and retention that found that government employers are seeing positive results from efforts to improve employee engagement, although less than half conduct employee engagement studies.

One of the more interesting findings of this year’s study is that, contrary to the popular narrative, it is not the “glass ceiling” that is keeping women from the top, but a broken rung much lower down on the corporate ladder.
Frontline workers make up most of the workforce around the globe, yet their jobs are often not considered in discussions about work/life balance, career growth, employee experience, creative benefits, etc. Nurses, firefighters, truck drivers and mechanics are just a few examples of workers who must be present in a specific place and at a specific time to perform their jobs. However, much of the common wisdom intended to boost employee experience at work assumes jobs that can be done remotely via a laptop. In this book, we’ll share insights that can work for those whose jobs require being present as well as those with “laptop” jobs that can be done virtually anywhere.

No matter how good our analytics tools, we are still making predictions about an uncertain future based on managers' estimates about what the business will need. Also, managers may be unclear about what specifically they want from workforce planning analytics, leaving analytics pros with an unmanageably large task. Here are four steps that will guide your approach to workforce planning.
