Developing Your Alternative Workforce (GIG) Strategy

According to a recent Deloitte human capital report, in 2020, the alternative workforce economy is expected to triple to 42 million workers in the United States. 45% of employers worldwide say that they are having trouble filling their open positions.

How fully are organizations capitalizing on the alternative workforce today? The Deloitte survey results suggest that many could be doing more. Only 8 percent of survey respondents, for instance, said that they had established processes to manage and develop alternative workforce sources. Companies are not strategically managing the alternative workforce. Because there is no strategy, many companies (54% in the finance function) are using alternative workers on a transactional basis and likely wasting time with on-boarding, off-boarding, retraining, etc.
