  1. Sustaining relationships with hourly workers beyond the term of their employment can improve the sourcing and availability of workers.
  2. The integration of talent management and workforce management best practices, combined with meaningful analytics, will drive improved workforce management results.
  3. Effective organizations leverage local demographic, economic and environmental data to understand and better operate within their business “micro climate”.
  4. Best practice organizations find ways to think globally and act locally. For example, in retail and healthcare, it is difficult to offshore hourly jobs because an on-premise presence is required, but there are blended models such as fast food order taking.
  5. There is a “new deal” with hourly workers in organizations with superior attraction and retention track records. For example, we must provide innovative reward and recognition programs, and opportunities to expand skills in situations where promotion not an option.

One thought on “Future Research

  1. With all the discussion of how much the Superbowl impacts productivity for X Billion dollars, I never hear about how severely Daylight Saving Time impacts it.

    Where the Superbowl is a one-off occurrence, DST comes twice a year, doesn’t affect only sports fans, and its effects linger far longer than just one day later. People can be late for work for days, and the discussion about how horrible it is lingers for just as long.
