Workforce Activity Report
Tracking the National Workforce Recovery
How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted frontline and hourly workers — and what can businesses do about it? At UKG, we are using our market leadership to analyze high-frequency data, including employee shift work, in a monthly Workforce Activity Report to better understand the rapidly evolving employment outlook. With a labor index of 3.3 million employees across 35,000 U.S. businesses, we aim to help business leaders, public health policy makers, labor economists, and other groups make better informed decisions to tackle unemployment, bolster the job market recovery, and ultimately get more employees back to work sooner.

Workforce Activity Report – March 2021
The UKG Workforce Activity Report revealed a 1.2% dip in shift volume over the course of March, largely due to seasonal springtime fluctuations in the second half of the month. However, shifts increased 2.6% in mid-March compared to mid-February — indicating the green shoots of recovery are still growing. The UKG Workforce Recovery Scale, a measure of shift work losses and gains during the COVID-19 pandemic, currently sits at 85.5 out of 100.
