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 – May 2021
The UKG Workforce Activity Report revealed that shift work volume levels increasing by just 0.1% in mid-May compared to mid-April, indicating a slight — thought still lackluster — improvement in month-over-month job creation and the overall national labor recovery. The UKG Workforce Recovery Scale, a measure of shift work losses and gains during the COVID-19 pandemic, currently sits at 85.3 out of 100.
