MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) today released the second annual “Dispatches from the New Economy: The On-Demand Workforce” study, offering a window into the motivations, attitudes and challenges of the 3.9 million Americans now working in the on-demand economy. The study, which features data from 6,247 people working via twelve on-demand economy and online talent marketplaces, found that people engaged in on-demand work are looking for flexible opportunities to smooth out unpredictable income, while also testing ways to build a secure financial future: “We’re continuing to see how profoundly the on-demand economy and technology is reshaping the American workforce and overall economy,” said Dan Wernikoff, executive vice president and general manager of Intuit TurboTax. “This new data demonstrates how more people are using on-demand work to improve their financial stability. At Intuit, we’re committed to understanding the challenges and needs of the growing ranks of people working on-demand jobs so that we can help simplify their financial lives and maximize their tax returns with solutions like TurboTax Self-Employed and QuickBooks Self-Employed.” “I decided to start working on a platform while I was an attorney at a law firm that told me there might not be enough work to justify my role. I wanted to know that I could have financial security if I was let go, and also to see if I could successfully run my own business,” said Josh Garber, a startup attorney who finds the majority of his work online. “My firm is now my full-time work, where I use platforms to get most of my clients, and my lifestyle has changed dramatically. I have the ability to create my own schedule, to focus on eating right and my physical/mental health, to travel and work from anywhere, and to avoid the stress of a commute and office politics.” “I chose to work through online platforms because it gives me full autonomy over my time, which I believe is the most sacred thing we have,” said Victor Sandifer, Lyft driver and small business owner of Run The World Clothing. “I am able to take care of all of my necessities while building my clothing company, Run the World By Victor Sandifer. I value my time and being able to spend it working on things that I am passionate about is more important than having a steady paycheck.” In an updated forecast of previous Intuit research, Intuit and Emergent Research now predict the number of people working on-demand jobs will grow from 3.9 million Americans today to 7.7 million by the year 2020, and an impressive 9.2 million by 2021. The rise of the on-demand economy is part of a broader long-term growth trend in the contingent workforce, which has grown from 17 percent of the U.S. workforce 25 years ago, to 36 percent today, and is expected to reach 43 percent by 2020. For self-employed individuals, including freelancers and independent contractors, tracking finances and preparing taxes can be a year-round challenge. To make life easier, Intuit Inc. has introduced TurboTax Self-Employed, the first and only integrated tax preparation solution that comes with QuickBooks Self-Employed for year-round expense tracking. The product also comes with QuickBooks Self-Employed at no extra cost when customers file their return through TurboTax Self-Employed. QuickBooks Self-Employed delivers effortless, year-round tracking with: A total of 6,247 workers who find work opportunities via online platforms completed an online survey between Sept. 20 and Nov. 18, 2016. Participating platforms include Lyft, Amazon Mechanical Turk, Upwork, TaskRabbit, Wonolo, MBO Partners, OnForce, Work Market, Catalant, Field Nation, Kelly Services and Avvo.

Note to Editors: The Policy Forum will livestream on Kelly Services' Facebook page beginning at 8:45 a.m. ET Today, one out of three U.S. workers is engaged in the "gig" economy. They range from app developers, to dog walkers, to research scientists, to freelance writers, but all have one thing in common -- they are struggling with an outdated social contract that often denies them the safety net of benefits that are afforded to traditional workers. To raise awareness about the needs of this growing, diverse group that plays such an important role in the currently changing workforce, Kelly Services® ( : KELYA) ( : KELYB) is bringing together policymakers, business leaders, economists, labor force experts and others for a policy forum today in Washington, D.C. Sponsored by The Conference Board, the forum, titled "Advancing the Social Contract for Gig Economy Workers," will explore solutions to the key challenges facing workers in the gig economy. The key objective is to set an actionable agenda for providing these workers access to benefits such as subsidized health insurance, unemployment insurance, workers' compensation for injuries, and retirement planning. "The implications for our economy are too big to ignore," said Carl T. Camden, president and chief executive officer of Kelly Services. "According to our current research, 33% of the entire U.S. workforce is comprised of gig workers or free agents. That's 50 million people working without a safety net. The benefits available to them are inadequate, especially when compared to the benefits that traditional workers receive from their employers. With the number of gig workers and free agents expected to grow, it's time to do what's needed to drive meaningful change and create access to benefits they have long been denied." Camden cited the following insights on free agents resulting from research and analysis conducted by Kelly Services earlier this year: "Stable health and retirement benefits are essential for expanding the success of alternative ways of working in the labor market," Camden said. "All stakeholders -- including businesses, workers and government officials -- have just begun to grapple with the challenge of creating an economy that provides both workers and businesses greater flexibility, without sacrificing the benefits both have derived from traditional employee-employer relationships. The policy forum is intended to advance that effort by considering workable solutions to these pressing challenges in the gig economy." Featured speakers and panelists at the forum include: For more information about the forum, please visit gigeconomyvoice.com. As a global leader in providing workforce solutions, Kelly Services, Inc.

TROY, MI--(Marketwired - November 22, 2016) - Kelly Services® , a global leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced that the U.S. Department of Commerce has affirmed Kelly's self-certification to the new EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The framework provides a legal basis to allow for transfer of personal information from the European Union (EU) to the U.S. and replaces the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor, with which Kelly Services was already compliant. "Data privacy is a topic on the minds of many individuals today as we are living and working in a world where security breaches are more prevalent and data privacy standards, especially with respect to personal data, are becoming more stringent," said John Healy, vice president and managing director, Global Talent Supply Chain, Kelly Services. "This certification continues Kelly's practice of being a responsible business partner to our clients and employees alike. It is our obligation to protect the personal information entrusted to us." While joining the Privacy Shield Framework is voluntary, once an eligible company makes the public commitment to comply with the Framework's requirements, the commitment will become enforceable under U.S. law. According to Healy, Kelly's privacy principles are core to how Kelly conducts business. The principles detail several areas that are not only part of Kelly's data privacy policy, but also a part of the company's Corporate Social Responsibility policy. These principles align with Kelly's values and commitment as a corporate citizen. "Given the worldwide span of our workers, clients, suppliers, and partners, we recognize the global reach of our business practices and our public accountability," Healy said.

Kelly Services ( : KELYA) ( : KELYB), a global leader in providing workforce solutions, today announced results for the third quarter of 2016. Carl T. Camden, President and Chief Executive Officer, announced revenue for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $1.2 billion, a 7.6% decrease (a 7.1% decrease on a constant currency basis) compared to the corresponding quarter of 2015. During the third quarter of 2016, Kelly transferred its APAC staffing operations to the TS Kelly Asia Pacific joint venture and recorded a gain of $87.2 million. Kelly retains a 49% ownership interest in the newly formed joint venture. Excluding the APAC staffing operations from the third quarter of 2015, adjusted 2016 third quarter revenue was down 0.7% year over year (a 0.1% decrease on a constant currency basis). Earnings from operations for the third quarter of 2016 totaled $18.8 million, compared to $16.6 million reported for the third quarter of 2015. Excluding the APAC staffing operations from the third quarter of 2015, adjusted earnings from operations were $14.5 million; therefore, Kelly's third quarter 2016 earnings increased 29% year-over-year on an adjusted basis. Diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2016 were $2.06 compared to $0.23 per share in the third quarter of 2015. Excluding the gain from 2016 third quarter results and APAC staffing operations from 2015 third quarter results, adjusted earnings per share were $0.44 in the third quarter of 2016 and $0.19 in the third quarter of 2015. Commenting on the third quarter, Camden stated, "Sorting through the financial complexity around the JV transaction, Kelly's third quarter performance reflects good operating leverage on basically flat revenue. We increased our gross profit rate, reduced expenses, and turned in healthy operating earnings and solid returns for our shareholders. Our U.S. Staffing segment showed competitive strength and agility in an uncertain economic environment, and our OCG business delivered year-over-year GP improvement. With the APAC JV now firmly in place, we are operating as a more focused, disciplined company relentlessly committed to profitability." In conjunction with its third quarter earnings release, Kelly Services has published a financial presentation on the Investor Relations page of our public website and will host a conference call at 9:00 a.m. (ET) on November 7 to review the results and answer questions.

AND SUBSIDIARIES RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP MEASURES (UNAUDITED) Management believes that the non-GAAP (Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) information excluding the 2016 gain on investment in equity affiliate, 2016 restructuring charges and disposal of APAC businesses is useful to understand the Company's fiscal 2016 financial performance and increases comparability. Specifically, Management believes that removing the impact of these items allows for a more meaningful comparison of current period operating performance with the operating results of prior periods. These non-GAAP measures may have limitations as analytical tools because they exclude items which can have a material impact on cash flow and earnings per share. As a result, Management considers these measures, along with reported results, when it reviews and evaluates the Company's financial performance. Management believes that these measures provide greater transparency to investors and provide insight into how Management is evaluating the Company's financial performance. Non-GAAP measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.
