Equifax Workforce Solutions Launches New Integration with isolved

Equifax Inc. | October 05, 2021

Equifax (NYSE: EFX) announced a new integration for The Work Number® database with isolvedTM, a provider of intuitive, people-first human capital management (HCM) technology. The availability of The Work Number service on isolved People Cloud will help automate the transfer of information to credentialed verifiers requesting employment and income data and help accelerate the results for consumer decisions on behalf of the employees of isolved customers.

isolved really delivers on the idea of an intelligently connected HCM platform, We're pleased that the new integration with The Work Number adds a valuable connection within isolved People Cloud that helps employers meet the needs of their employees while removing manual tasks from their day.

- Joe Muchnick, Senior Vice President at Equifax Workforce Solutions.

To become a certified isolved Integration Partner, Equifax Workforce Solutions and isolved validated the integration for security, usability and customer need. By automating the employment and income verification process with The Work Number service, employers on isolved People Cloud can now offer their employees improved privacy, a reduction in the chance of human error and more timely responses that employees count on when applying for credit or government benefits.

What I love about The Work Number entering the isolved Integration Marketplace is that it's as good for the employee experience as it is for the HR manager's experience, If an employee needs their employment verified, it's often for a critical milestone in their life. They shouldn't have to wait to get a loan or, in the case of past employees, get a new job because it's the weekend or HR is backlogged with other requests. With The Work Number integration for isolved, the employee gets instant, real-time verification and HR gets hours back in their days to tend to other critical areas.

- Kelli Rico, Vice President of Product Management and Training for isolved.

Current and future clients of isolved, along with clients of the isolved Network, will benefit from this new integration. The Work Number service is available at no charge to isolved People Cloud customers and is being added to the isolved Integration Marketplace.

American Staffing Association | December 21, 2021

U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.7 million temporary and contract workers per week in the third quarter of 2021, according to data released today by the American Staffing Association—up approximately 90,600 from the second quarter. Staffing employment and sales have historically seen quarter-to-quarter gains following first quarter declines. While the second quarter of 2021 diverged from this trend, third quarter data showed a return to growth—with staffing jobs increasing by 3.5% quarter-to-quarter and temporary and contract staffing sales growing 3.1%. "U.S. businesses are turning to the staffing industry for help in filling millions of current job openings, The staffing industry is playing an increasingly important role in today's labor market by providing talent sourcing expertise and workforce flexibility to employers in need of workers, and helping candidates find roles that are the right fit." -Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. On a year-to-year basis, staffing jobs rose 15.2% in the third quarter of 2021 from the same period in 2020—which was still early in the economy's recovery from the initial hit of the Covid-19 pandemic. Temporary and contract staffing sales totaled $36.1 billion in the third quarter, an increase of 21.8% from the third quarter of 2020. Staffing firms are optimistic about the fourth quarter of 2021, projecting their revenue to grow 9% year-to-year and anticipating an increase of 19% for the full year of 2021 compared with 2020.
