As employee and employer expectations constantly evolve, one of the foremost challenges being faced in the modern work landscape is hiring the right talent. A fast-emerging dimension to talent management is the rising power of the gig workforce/flexi staffing. According to a NITI Aayog report on the gig economy, the gig workforce has the potential to increase to 2.35 crore by 2030. In fact, in 2023 alone, gig or contractual hiring is expected to increase to 9% on an average of the total workforce hiring.
With the rise in gig work and demands for flexible, project-based staffing increasing across the board, especially in the IT sector, modern HR professionals are taking a skills-based approach to hiring and are turning to digital hiring platforms. These platforms act as an intermediary between skilled professionals who are looking for work and organisations looking to hire, and work especially well for companies that have specific expectations when it comes to skills, such as in the IT sector.
In this exclusive webcast, People Matters, in association with TalentOnLease, will talk about the changing employment landscape, the journey from the Great Resignation to mass layoffs, and how talent managers need to take the lead in exploring new hiring platforms.
