Abstract:</strong) By aggregating performance, retention, demographic, and behavioral data on over five million applicants and employees at many of the world’s most influential global brands and combining these different data streams, Evolv is able to track employees throughout all stages of the employee lifecycle in order to uncover workforce insights.
As a result, the statistical reliability of these insights is extremely high, with the typical analysis incorporating hundreds of thousands of employee data points. The Workforce Report decodes the key factors for workforce performance common to many organizations, irrespective of industry or role.
In this Q2 issue, we debunk many of the existing myths around which factors drive attrition and performance within large employers. Do job hoppers and the unemployed make bad hires? Is social networking behavior something to be avoided amongst job applicants? What is the magnitude of the effect of supervisors on employee tenure and performance? Each organization is unique, but data reveals that most organizations experience similar challenges and follow similar inaccurate intuitions and assumptions when it comes to their workforce.
