As discussed in last week’s blog, The New Workforce – What to Expect, the world of work is undergoing real change, as businesses brush old barriers aside to make positive organizational changes.
The big focus has been on workforce agility - the last two years have revealed that workforce scalability is the key to economic longevity, and that operationalizing that scalability, through leveraging the power of the extended workforce, lies at the very heart of workforce agility.
Given the increasing market demand for engaging more flexible workforces, businesses are exploring technology-driven solutions to address these challenges and compete in the future of work.
As a result, the use of digital and on-demand staffing technologies has grown 700% since 2015.
What are Talent Marketplaces?
Ardent Partners defines Talent Marketplaces as “the enterprise-grade solutions that facilitate real-time and on-demand talent engagement with independent, freelance or contract workers via a web-based network or portal”.
Talent Marketplaces are the technologies making it possible for companies to shape their workforce to respond to changing market needs, allowing businesses to tap into in-demand skills they don’t have internally, expand their capabilities, and improve the organization’s capacity to complete critical projects.
Marketplaces for Premium Talent
Talent Marketplaces allow companies to source niche experts for project work or to be embedded in wider teams. Whether it’s structural reorganization or reskilling, these marketplaces allow decision-makers to work out needs to be done to move forward, and also allows them to find the right people within the organization to lead that change.
