Trend 2: Workforce-On-Demand – The Use Of Worldwide Talent
In the USA, 34% of employees work as so-called “open talents,” or freelancers that take on work contracts. The number of freelancers is also rising steadily in Germany. Companies benefit from this exchange, as they have the opportunity to draw on resources and competencies spontaneously and temporarily. What is missing for companies, however, are systems of organization for this additional labor force.
The shift from classical work relations to “workforce on demand” needs an HR solution for employee management. However, how would a CEO reinvent his or her company to fit this model? First and foremost: Adapt yourself! Even if you do not presently hire freelancers, the day will likely come sooner than you think.
Go through your resources once again and clearly define where the strengths of your company lie and in which areas input is still necessary. This is how you can find out where there is potential demand for these employment opportunities.
Your Task: Equip Your Company To Be Ready For Open Talent:
- Inform yourself on the subject with your HR managers and exchange ideas
- Define clear goals and possible resources for future use
- Develop a framework for how possible collaborations might look like
