Capitalizing on the new world of work
requires new mindsets and capabilities
Digital disruption is forcing companies to think about talent in radically new ways. Even the longest-lived brands are finding that new technologies and changing consumer preferences have compelled them to access talent in ways that were unrecognizable a decade ago. Companies will not succeed in today's rapidly changing business environment if they rely solely on the relatively small number of people who happen to wear a company's employee badge.
Companies must now focus less on the fixed supply of in-house people and more on the capabilities they need to get work done. Those that are able to easily access and manage skilled, independent workers will be able to unleash fresh energy and thinking inside their organizations.
