During 2020 more than 50 million freelance workers will enter the workforce. By 2025 open talent systems are predicted to be the predominant employment model. Re-source is a new consulting business run by Barry Matthews who has a track record of spotting disruptive trends and launching businesses that enable them.
2020 has seen the world of work transform before our eyes. The global freelance workforce has been augmented by millions of skilled workers looking to engage in new, creative ways while businesses look to reduce their fixed costs and move to flexible, resilient, as-a-service delivery models. A diverse range of technology platforms match this supply and demand, enabling immediate access to the best global talent and competitive advantage for those that get it right
Sourcing models are being disrupted, intelligent automation is rapidly maturing and open talent eco-systems are accelerating fast. Accessing the power of the crowd alongside more traditional internal, freelance, outsourced, and automated delivery models require a new way of thinking and a new way of sourcing
Barry and I chat about the potential of the open talent economy to transform global business and how and why he believes re-source can help them to do it.
