Curating a workforce for the future

The economic impact of the global pandemic has prompted organisations in every sector to reduce costs and boost productivity, and we will continue to feel the impact of this downturn for decades to come. Our new eguide explores some of the proactive steps that employers can take to build a workforce that can deliver, sustain and consolidate these projects.

Long-term hiring vision 

Hiring managers will need to build flexibility into their hiring strategy and allow for the peaks and troughs in demand for talent. Their task will be to plan, build and curate sensitively balanced workforces of: 

  • Permanent employees 
  • Contractors 
  • Gig-workers 
  • Statement-of-work-vendors 
  • Freelancers
  •  

Adaptive hiring 

How location dependent are the roles that you are looking to hire for? If particular roles don’t need to be based in an office then diverse talent can be attracted from anywhere – locally, nationally or even overseas. This is particularly useful if you are hiring in areas where there are likely skill shortages. 

Diversity remains vital 

Now more than ever, employers need to keep their focus on creating and maintaining layers of diversity throughout their workforce. Diversity helps sustain critical thinking, creativity, innovation and problem solving – all essential qualities during market disruption. It also forms a powerful part of an organisation’s brand and employer value proposition.
