Julie Mills, APSCo Australia MD has announced the launch of the APSCo Index. The Index is the result of a collaboration between members, affiliates, government and established researchers to provide a unique tracking of temporary, contract and permanent engagements, and the workforce generally, from both a placement and demand perspective using recognised international and Australian data analysis.
“The Index provides market intelligence for the sector and the data serves as an indicator of current and future workforce conditions in the professional staffing and recruitment sector,” said Mills.
“APSCo Australia invests in the Index,” she continued, “in order to drive clarity in the understanding of the breadth and diversity of the professional staffing and recruitment market, the workforce engaged in that market and their models of engagement.”
The Index, and its subsidiary reports, are already contributing to a better understanding of the demand for talent, skills in demand now and for the future, in order to inform staffing and recruitment companies, corporates, government and the employment market of the necessary conversations to unlock the potential of the modern workforce.
The Index includes:
- The APSCo Index workbook which provides analysts with unique quarterly data to support market trends monitoring The Workbook includes detailed aspects of labour market movements such as specific roles, skills and industries of interest. The Workbook allows users to select time frame, interval, and variables – the individual data points and trends can be viewed in configurations that best suit the user. The Workbook charts are updated quarterly.
- Monthly update and quarterly forecast dashboards that provide top level commentary from the Workbook.
