Workforce activity declined 2.4% in January, turning the broader labor market trend toward neutral, after several months of relatively consistent stagnation - but there's more to the story on what's driving the slowdown in shift work, according to the January 2024 Workforce Activity Report published by UKG.



UKG will discuss current and future potential trends shaping the frontline economy on January 30, at 10:00 a.m. ET, including:

  • What outside factors likely caused January's drop in shift work;
  • How U.S. employment levels are affecting workforce activity;
  • Which sectors felt the greatest impacts in January; and
  • What to expect from Friday's jobs report.

Register to attend the live briefing.
