Total Workforce Index 2021

For eight years, the Total Workforce Index™ (TWI) has measured the relative ease of sourcing, hiring and retaining contingent and permanent workers. It’s the only index of its kind to analyse over 200 factors across 75 competing labour markets, providing a comprehensive and comparative view of four key categories: Workforce Supply, Cost Efficiency, Regulation and Workforce Productivity.

This paper takes a closer look at the macro-level TWI data to identify the latest market characteristics of Mature, Emerging and Incubator markets. The report also highlights three important labour market opportunities, while looking specifically at investments in key growth sectors of Digital Services, Advanced Manufacturing and Clean Energy.

Companies using the Total Workforce Index to optimise workforce investments and access in-demand skills enjoy a vital edge in the race for growth talent. This includes the ability to see around corners and focus on short-, medium- and long-term investments in labour markets, sectors and skills sets with the most potential to shape the post-pandemic world.
