The Transformation of the Agile Workforce

The Transformation of the Agile Workforce

The US is simultaneously experiencing high unemployment and a labor shortage, with over 9 million open jobs available. Companies are looking for more on-demand and agile talent, while skilled workers continue to demand greater flexibility in their roles.

In response, nearly three quarters of companies are expected to transform their business into a more attractive place to work. At the same time, the portion of the workforce that opts for contingent roles continues to rise. Today, 46.5% of the typical organization’s workforce is considered non-employee, reflecting a 7% increase in less than two years. The continued shift toward contingent labor sparks the need for more innovative tools, solutions, and strategies to maximize the value of this ever-evolving channel of talent.

Direct sourcing and talent pools represent a revolutionary means for businesses to transform the way they engage with and leverage top-tier, unique, and in-demand talent and skill sets. Ardent’s research has found that companies currently leveraging direct sourcing tools have a talent redeployment rate that is nearly twice that of companies without this automation, proving that direct sourcing platforms have a robust link to the overall quality and depth of skill sets and expertise.
