SAN LEANDRO, Calif. – Nov. 5, 2015 – TriNet (NYSE: TNET), a leading cloud-based provider of HR services, today announced the findings of its October 2015 SMBeat®, a monthly analysis of small and midsize business (SMB) employment and human capital economic indicators. October’s report features a comparison between the activities of full-time working millennials and workers nearing retirement age, as well as trends in work habits by state. The TriNet SMBeat, which focuses on geographic and industry trends on a national scale, also shows increased employment stability and positive growth in major industries.
According to the report, in 2014 millennials spent a significant part of their free time on personal care activities – which, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), includes such activities as sleeping, grooming, health-related self-care and personal activities – while baby boomers work more after 6 p.m. than employees of any other age group, clocking an average of 1.78 hours of evening work per weekday.
Additionally, the report ranked the states with the populations who worked the most hours and those whose populations worked the least.
