We came across this article published recently by Inside HR. In the article, Rob Scott explores the impact and implications of a changing workforce mix - in particular the employee/employer relationship - and how this will re-shape how HR engages and manages what will likely become a more demanding type of contingent worker.
We again see the mention of technology as an enabler particularly when it comes to finding, engaging and managing a contingent workforce. The costs of continuing traditional recruitment methods in this changing workforce landscape may prove a major differential for businesses in not only managing recruitment/on-boarding spend, but time to market for new hires/engagements.
At CircleSource, we found the comments around a potential move from traditional 'performance management' principles and processes to a star rating system or the like very relevant. This is something we felt strongly about and implemented from the get go in our sourcing and engagement platform.
