Vertical: Healthcare | Type: Workforce Management

Today’s labor force is increasingly composed of independent talent—people who work independently to build businesses, develop their careers, pursue passions, and supplement their incomes. Independent talent give companies the ability to respond quickly to project demands, exert greater control over employment costs, and realize access to in-demand skills without adding to company payroll.

Workforce Optimization is the Strategy of Agile Companies

Organizations across the world are re-envisioning their labor forces to include a strategic mix of full-time, independent, and offshore talent. This modern way of working gives enterprises the agility they need to remain competitive. But in order to find and attract this valuable pool of talent, it is important for organizations to understand how and why independent professionals choose their clients.

Our research finds that 93% of independent contractors have some or a lot of choice when it comes to picking the clients they work with. In order to appeal to top talent, companies must understand prioritize the unique needs of independents. A clear onboarding process, quick and fair compensation, and reasonable processes and procedures rank are high-ranking satisfaction factors. Technology plays a big role in bringing these satisfaction factors to life by creating a positive, streamlined work experience both for independent talent and enterprise managers. Online marketplaces, for instance, help to reduce onboarding time, minimize compliance risks, and fill available opportunities without the need of a third party or excess paperwork.
