When it comes to skilled, business-oriented talent, it is a seller’s market. No longer can upper management call all the shots, dictating pay rates, work norms, and hierarchies. A confluence of technology, worker values, and market forces has shifted the balance of power.
At a time when one in five job seekers won’t apply for a job if the application is longer than 20 minutes, companies need to do everything they can to secure the talent they need. That means going out of their way to make things easy. Firms should streamline the onboarding, management, and payment processes to make themselves as attractive as possible to contingent workers.
