TOTAL WORKFORCE INDEX ™ 

WORKFORCE RESULTS

The Total Workforce results presented below are a combination of all the workers engaged in the contingent and the permanent workforces within each country. The Total Workforce should not be confused with the Total Labor Force. While the Total Workforce includes all of the individuals engaged in work activity within a workforce market, the Total Labor Force describes both employed and unemployed members of the population who are of working age and who are able to be engaged for work.
