Findings Indicate Need to Replace Traditional Approaches with Flexible Work Models as
Organizations Reach Talent Tipping Point
HANOVER, Md., Nov. 5, 2018 – Allegis Group, the global leader in talent solutions, today released a report that examines how the skills and talent shortage is being influenced by the changing nature of work, employee demographics and emerging technologies. In “The New Meaning of Talent: Adapting to the Work and the Workforce of Tomorrow,” Allegis Group explores successful strategies employers are using to evolve their talent management practices to align with a world of low unemployment, talent scarcity, a multigenerational workforce, global sourcing, digital talent acquisition and other factors.
The report uses survey data collected from over 1,000 HR decision-makers to illustrate how the market for talent has changed over the last decade and to shed light on the need for employers to move from rigid, full-time, industry-centric approaches, and instead embrace more flexible, innovative employment models and fulfill needs through transferable skills.
“The world of work looks significantly different than it did just a few years ago. Critical skills are scarce, demand is high, and new trends and innovations are changing the talent landscape every day. As a result, organizations are challenging old assumptions about the people they need to do the work, the trends that shape how they acquire talent and the evolving nature of the work itself,” said Andy Hilger, president of Allegis Group. “Talent strategies must evolve to stay ahead of change. It’s a priority that is important not only for the future of talent acquisition but for the success of the business itself.”
Survey research finds that companies today rely on outdated workforce strategies, even amid a talent shortage and changing markets.
Finding: Companies are slow to adopt flexible models for talent
Finding: Technology underutilized in creating talent visibility and availability
“In our 35 years of delivering talent solutions, placing the right people in fulfilling jobs and adopting new technologies, we’ve found that the most successful workforce model is one that evolves with changing times,” Hilger said. “Companies are increasingly committed to a future-focused talent approach, and through our dedicated expertise, services and innovation leadership, we’re proud to be a part of that vision.”
Readers of “The New Meaning of Talent: Adapting to the Work and the Workforce of Tomorrow” will gain a solid understanding of the relationship between talent and business in the world of work today, with expert advice on how to replace outdated assumptions with a more effective and modern approach.
