11:15 am - 11:35 am Presentation: Rise of the Human Cloud - How Agile Talent Pools Will Transform Talent Management

Organizations are under more pressure than ever to innovate, deliver quickly, and respond instantly to changes in the competitive landscape.  At the core of this shift is the talent strategy within an organization. Traditional hiring cycles, which are rigid, slow, and cumbersome, will not be sufficient to meet this demand, nor will traditional modes of engaging outside talent and expertise.

The Human Cloud is driving organizations towards a new paradigm in talent management - building teams of highly capable individuals, on demand, that are designed to drive specific outcomes.  For organizations to thrive in this new future, they will need to develop the ability to rapidly assemble, lead, and manage teams blended from a wide range of sources as a core competency.

At the end of this sessions, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the different types of talent in the human cloud, and why there is no “one size fits all” answer.
  • Develop ideas to enhance the talent management strategy of their organization.
  • Understand and implement the core competencies required to maximize the value delivered by the Human Cloud and a blended workforce.
  • Build a workplace that is attractive to a wide range of talent, including freelance and globally distributed talent.  
In the world of talent and workforce management, “total talent data” is incredibly valuable to assist organizations in making key financial or staffing decisions. This interactive and engaging discussion will illustrate how key Contingent Staffing experts have addressed the following within their organization (and how you can too!)

  • Gained visibility into their total workforce
  • Partner with your VMS/MSP to provide the necessary data
  • Developed actionable insights from your contingent workforce activity
