If you’re like most of the 2 million business in Australia, at some stage you’ll be engaging an external specialist service provider or an independent expert consultant to help in your business.
For many years now, organisations both large and small have needed to access independent expert consultants or specialist service providers to augment their teams, or assist with short term assignments or projects, or just deliver specialist services or technical pieces of work the business does not carry in its workforce.
Whether you’re a micro business of 1 to 4 people, or a large ASX listed business, you just can’t, nor should you, carry all the expertise you need in your business…just in case you may need it.
In the current environment, and looking to the future, the need to access skilled independent experts continues to grow as businesses, large and small, grapple with what the discussion around the Future of Work trends bring.
For example, we’re told:
Business are looking at “Alternative Workforce Models” which may result in a shift in traditional workforce structures and a greater use of independent specialist workers.
More and more workers are seeking greater control of when and who they work for, using their expertise to work across multiple projects in their own businesses.
Whether or not these trends indicate there will be an increased demand to access talented and skilled independent experts and service providers remains to be seen. After all, business have been consuming services and skills provided by independent experts and specialist services for many years, and most likely, will be for many years to come!
