The Unrecognized Potential of Onboarding and Offboarding
Description: Organizations operating in the new world of work are challenged with managing a hybrid workforce, retaining high-potentials, and attracting talent in a candidate-driven market. Two forces are creating the potential for a labor influx and efflux across organizations worldwide. First, an improved economy almost a decade post-recession has shifted the power back to the candidate. Shorter tenures and job hopping can result as workers determine the value of their skills in the marketplace which is especially concerning for retaining your top talent. Second, mobile-enablement and technological advances have heightened and strengthened the connection between work and people. Online platforms that connect freelance workers to gigs, or projects allow organizations the ability to increase their agility and hire on-demand, while giving workers flexibility and access to more opportunities.
