In a competitive market, companies need to make sure they have the best talent available. In the rare case your industry hasn’t experienced a talent deficit, however, it is very possibly on the horizon and you will need to be ready for it.
The speed at which business operates has increased significantly and companies are trying hard to adapt and stay up-to-date, while also remaining lean and managing costs.
The global war for talent is getting a lot more aggressive. Making sure your company has access to the best talent pool is vital to remain competitive, and one of the best ways to manage this is to develop a talent pool.
A talent pool is an actively managed database of past independent contractors and contingent workers who have shown aptitude and reliability within your organization.
Talent quality is near impossible to judge at the outset, and with training, recruitment and workforce integration costs being high, having a readily accessible talent pool ensures you have access to both quality and quick availability of talent. A lot of companies have some form of tracking in place for previous contractors, maybe as a spreadsheet or list. However, in most cases there is no formal process in place, and that's where we can help.

Contingent workforce management programs are complex. With around 41.5 percent of the average enterprise’s workforce being made up of “non-employee” workers (Ardent Partners), large organizations need to implement strategic plans that make the management of this workforce more efficient and cost-effective.
Many companies, however, are failing to get this right. Contingent workforce management programs are highly strategic, time-consuming and require highly skilled professionals that have expertise in contingent workers and how to manage them.> Read More
