TriNet Named in Fast Company's Second Annual List
TriNet (NYSE: TNET), a leading provider of comprehensive human resource solutions for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs), today announced it has been named to Fast Company's 2022 Brands That Matter list. Fast Company's list honors brands that have achieved relevance through cultural impact and social engagement, and authentically communicating their missions and ideals.

TriNet, awarded in the category for large companies with 1,000 or more employees, was recognized for its People Matter marketing campaign, which launched in late 2020 during the height of the pandemic and celebrated the hard-working and diverse employees of its tens of thousands of SMB customers.

"It is an honor to be recognized among such internationally renowned companies as one of Fast Company's Brands That Matter, Our goal when the pandemic hit was to become a steadfast resource to these critical SMBs. This type of validation from Fast Company is further proof that focusing on humanity in an honest and thoughtful way is the most important foundation of any successful marketing campaign."

-��Michael Mendenhall, TriNet Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Communications Officer

This year, we've expanded the Brands That Matter program to evaluate honorees in the context of how they matter within the category in which they compete for people's attention or loyalty. The result is a wide-ranging list of honorees that are making their mark on culture, and through social impact, said Brendan Vaughan, Fast Company's editor-in-chief. 

TriNet's People Matter campaign highlighted the human side of HR. The nation-wide, omni-channel campaign also featured out-of-home ads in New York City, the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles, in addition to television commercials and radio spots across the country, and a major digital push that included website, digital ads and social media.

Fast Company editors judged each brand on relevancy, cultural impact, ingenuity, and business impact to compile the list. The final list, which includes large multinational conglomerates, small-but-mighty companies, and nonprofits, recognizes 144 brands that give people compelling reasons to care about them—and offer inspiration for others to buy in. All 144 have found an ability to forge an emotional connection with customers, whether leading on the environment or pop culture, engaging B2B customers, or responding meaningfully to current events.

With artificial intelligence experience from MIT, Google, Cornell and Stanford, Workstream built the first multilingual AI chatbot platform to broaden accessibility to AI to the over 80 million hourly workers in the U.S. According to research by the Urban Institute, 14% of all workers in the U.S. and 20% of low-wage workers are immigrants who use English as a second language. These numbers are projected to continue growing. Workstream Assistant can understand a wide range of languages to accommodate the diversifying workforce and will use machine learning to provide applicants with more information about the company while gathering applicant information. By enabling workers to communicate in any language they're comfortable in, Workstream Assistant empowers applicants to ask more questions about the position and company — from what career progression they can expect to what the company culture is like. Giving hourly workers the opportunity to vet jobs through a natural conversation before they apply encourages a better applicant-to-job fit, resulting in stronger hires and better employee retention for businesses. "I am thrilled to embrace the power of AI in our recruiting and retention efforts. With the ability to personalize Workstream Assistant to embody our brand, we expect to attract more applicants excited to join the Eegee's family, resulting in stronger hires," according to Jason Kornosky, director of operations for Eegee's. "The chat-apply experience is so natural and authentic that it makes it easy for applicants to ask questions and vet us as much as we vet them. I see this having a big impact on how we build a loyal, happy workforce, and I can't wait to see what more we can accomplish with Workstream AI." Paired with funding from Peter Thiel's Founders Fund, GGV Capital, Mark Cuban, Will Smith, Jay Z, The Chainsmokers, and Dropbox co-founder Arash Ferdowsi, Workstream has helped franchisees and businesses like Burger King, UPS, and Marriott hire and retain several million hourly employees since 2017. Workstream's new AI technology, through integration with OpenAI, builds on this expertise while using previously acquired data points to create an AI platform to serve the hourly workforce. "Workstream Assistant represents a crucial breakthrough for the hourly workforce and is an indispensable tool for hiring managers and HR professionals in this domain," said Desmond Lim, CEO and co-founder of Workstream.

The ADP Research Institute (ADPRI) has released a new data-driven resource, 'Today at Work,' providing insights into the business impact of promotions and introducing a real-time measure of worker motivation and commitment. This comprehensive analysis leverages ADP's extensive dataset and surveys spanning nearly a decade to offer valuable perspectives on the world of work. ADP Chief Economist and Head of the ADP Research Institute, Dr. Nela Richardson, remarked With so much data at our fingertips, we have the opportunity to tell the full story of the workforce with an eye toward its continued evolution and change. [Source: Cision PR Newswire] She further supported the statement with an example that decision-makers and economists have traditionally focused on productivity as a critical metric, but assessing the factors that influence productivity has proven to be a challenging endeavor. In the report, she said they are able to interlink motivation, commitment and productivity. Understanding the intricate relationship between promotions, employee motivation, and commitment is crucial for organizations aiming to retain and engage their workforce effectively. By uncovering these dynamics, businesses can develop strategies to support career advancement while mitigating the risk of employee turnover. The ADP Research Institute's insights are derived from its extensive dataset, representing over 25 million U.S. workers, and surveys conducted in 29 countries, providing a global perspective on workforce dynamics. The report provides a multifaceted view of workforce-related topics, including the impact of promotions on employee retention and the development of the EMC Index as a tool to measure worker motivation and commitment. It emphasizes the importance of understanding these aspects to enhance productivity and informs decision-makers about the business outcomes. The report delves into the significance of promotions, highlighting their impact on businesses under specific conditions. ADPRI conducted a thorough analysis of job histories for over 1.2 million U.S. workers between 2019 and 2022 to uncover a relationship between promotions and employee turnover. It revealed that, within a month of their first promotion, 29 percent of individuals left their employer, compared to 18 percent who would have left without the promotion. The report also explores various factors influencing promotion impacts, such as job requirements and industry. Additionally, the report introduces the Employee Motivation and Commitment (EMC) Index, a tool designed to gauge worker allegiance. The EMC Index, built on a decade of surveys involving over 490,000 workers across 29 countries, offers real-time insights into employee motivation and commitment. The report underlines the connection between worker motivation commitment and productivity, emphasizing the importance of understanding and boosting these factors. The EMC Index also revealed a correlation between employee motivation, commitment and output. Those with a high level of productivity are 2.6 times more likely to respond to inquiries regarding their motivation and work positively. The ‘Today at Work’ series of reports offers a unique blend of data and surveys, delivering actionable insights to decision-makers in areas where data has traditionally been limited. The focus on employee motivation, commitment, and the impact of promotions provides valuable guidance for businesses looking to optimize their workforce strategies.
