About This Class

Managing workers who are strategically important to the success of an organisation but not necessarily directly employed is a strategy difficult to get right but when done well it can really drive business performance.

As the rapid globalization of business continues, industries have begun to prepare itself for a flat world economy, a world with remote and easy access to talent and customers regardless of distance or language. No longer can an organization assume that highly skilled contractors, freelancers or other non-permanent workers will be ready and willing to fill gaps as circumstances require.

Today’s talent is in demand regardless of it employment status.

Today’s labour markets are undergoing radical change, as digital platforms transform how they operate and revolutionise the nature of work. The traditional workplace as we once knew it is changing, and a key component of this evolution is the rise of so-called gig economy, the on-demand workforce, the workflex, the contingent workforce etc.

In this full course (split into 3 sections here on Skillshare) you will learn how companies are continuously seeking innovative ways to cut costs, increase efficiency, and perform competitively, and the strategic use of contingent workers can be an effective tool in advancing these goals.
