The paper establishes how MBO Partners is leading the establishment of an innovative engagement enablement platform and a digital-service ecosystem that will meet the growing support needs of independent professionals and the enterprises/other organizations that wish to do business with them.
A work market once largely driven by traditional employer-employee relationships has evolved to include alternative work arrangements. In the mid 20 th century, an entire industry sector has emerged to meet the needs of organizations (largely by borrowing the linear industrial age procurement processes) that need to source and procure non-traditional labor, such as temporary and independent workers as well as workers who choose a non-employee work arrangement. This industry sector includes vendor management systems, managed service providers, Independent Contractor Engagement service providers, temporary staffing suppliers and professional services firms.
Until recently, the contingent workforce has traditionally been viewed with a singular lens with functional systems and solutions largely focused on efficient procurement and management. However, in the 21 st Century there is a growing population of highly skilled knowledge workers that deliver their expertise and services to organizations by contract work arrangements. This growing class of independent professionals has illuminated the limitations of traditional engagement methods and has stimulated the development of an emerging digital ecosystem of work arrangement intermediaries to support these limitations.
In the contractor management services arena, MBO Partners has been identified as uniquely positioned to be a keystone in this ecosystem, to serve the 21st century population of independent professionals as well as the managers and organizations who need the services of these professionals.
Need to know information for any individuals or companies hoping to engage independent professionals in the 21st Century.
