A new NPR/Marist poll reveals that one in five jobs in the U.S. is held by a worker under contract. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the entire workforce in the U.S. within the next decade.
More and more organizations have begun to see contractors and suppliers as valuable business partners intrinsic to driving service and product innovation. For many companies, especially those operating in highly regulated industries, managing compliance in-house for all of these suppliers can be burdensome.
But the cost of non-compliance — in the form of penalties, fines, productivity losses, settlement costs, and inefficiencies — is ruinous.
This white paper will discuss:
• The hidden costs of ignoring contractor management
• Best practices towards holistic compliance and governance
• The cost of different contractor management systems
• How to get the highest ROI in your supply chain
Containers have become the new infrastructure
standard for development teams. While the “DIY
container approach” (un-orchestrated containers)
still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer
compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade
deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams
are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes
and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27%
adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019
according to the RightScale “2019 State of the Cloud
Report,” from Flexera. The same report also positions
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes
offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate.
Previously, containers were a technology deployed
by individual teams – and were typically used for
“application testing” in the enterprise world. Today,
many organizations are now not only seeing the
benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy
production applications, but also re-positioni
Automation will inevitably have a continued impact on the workforce. It will eliminate some jobs, modify others, and create new ones. To keep our position as the industrialized world leader, we need a skilled U.S. workforce that’s ready to fill manufacturing jobs of the future.

Foodservice managers who have lingering doubts about investing in on-site
language training should consider this:
By 2027, over one million new jobs are expected to be added to the restaurant
According to the National Restaurant Association, “All of this means that
foreign-born employees will be increasingly important to the restaurant
industry’s ability to expand and create jobs in the years ahead.”38
For foodservice operators and managers who want to plan for their future now,
the question is obvious: What’s the best way to address these issues?

Millennials are reshaping the world of work through their knowledge of new technologies, work habits, and attitudes of the 21st-century workplace. At the same time, IT departments are working to add flexibility to the way they are supporting the Millennial worker. Yet it’s not just about IT providing the right tools and devices to its employees so they can get their jobs done effectively; IT needs to offer an overall workplace ecosystem that is secure and innovative. However, there are worrying gaps between what IT provides and what the different types of workers need.

These are troubling times if you are looking for talent. As I talk with organizations, one theme continues to come up: “We can’t fill open jobs… and people that join us don’t stay for very long.” All you have to listen to is one of the many economic reports that are on the news every day to hear that the economy is strong and jobs are plentiful.

Enterprise security has undergone a complete transformation as a result of rapid and sweeping changes that are remaking the way public sector organizations do business. New technologies and trends are changing the very definition of an enterprise, how and where we work, and the tools we use to do our jobs. These trends include:
Because English is the default language of global business, success depends on employees who can communicate and collaborate effectively in this common language. In fact, new research from the CEB shows that as much as 50% of successful performance now depends on collaboration (up from 20% ten years ago), making this a more urgent issue. However, most employees (93%) working in multinational companies do not have sufficient English skills to adequately perform their jobs. Read the white paper and learn how to build the business case for launching an enterprise-wide Business English development program to increase your company¹s productivity and profits.
The new way of work is multigenerational, multi-geographical, multi-cultural, and location-agnostic and device-independent. Workteam and organizational structures have morphed into more matrixed (vs. hierarchical) arrangements. Find out the different expectations of how, where and what people use to get their jobs done through this whitepaper.
In this e-book, we discuss several factors that are creating greater challenges for hiring managers in 2015, including rising employment (meaning more competition for those hard-to-find candidates), scarcity of key skilled workers, and a rising number of people who say they plan to look for new jobs this year.

A recent employee engagement survey by Achievers asked 1,224 employees from the U.S., Canada, UK, and Australia if they plan on looking for new jobs in 2019. The results were jarring: only 21% of North American employees are very engaged, yet most are not looking to leave their jobs. While this may seem like a positive trend, it actually indicates a major workplace complacency conundrum – one that could have a significantly negative effect on your bottom line
This report will explain the dangers of complacency in the workplace and share four target areas to address employee engagement, arguably one of the most critical business challenges
Throughout the twentieth century, the efficiency of real estate
portfolios was quantified primarily in terms of a building’s
cost per square foot and the average number of “usable square
feet” it provided for each person who worked in it. By these
measures, the workplace contributed to an organization’s
bottom line by (1) getting smaller and/or (2) fitting more
people into the same amount of space.
Meanwhile, mobile technologies and new economic and social
pressures ushered in new ways of working. By 2011, more
than 60 percent of large organizations worldwide had
implemented programs and practices that gave people more
choice about where, when, and how to do their jobs.2 But

person,” “desk-sharing ratios”) have emerged, the focus on

Over the last three years, social networks have experienced exponential growth. Employee networks have grown accordingly, offering access to structured career data through sites like LinkedIn in particular, and unstructured data through networks like Facebook. Employees are continually adding new contacts and growing personal networks. Job posting tools that share jobs into social networks are often described as social referral tools, though this is an inaccurate and misleading description. The more sophisticated of these tools create unique links for sharing that enable employers to identify which of their employees originated the share. This is useful for recognition and reward, whilst the practice of sharing jobs in the wider network is to be encouraged in order to reach job seekers who are browsing or using search engines to identify opportunities. Job seekers are increasingly connecting with their peers in organizations they want to work for. Encouraging employees to share jobs in
