Workforce 2025: The future of the world of work
Workforce agility is defined as the ability of employees and organizations to remain steadfast and maintain productivity in the face of change. When we refer to a flexible workforce, we’re talking about a staffing model that features non-traditional workers*. Such a model allows an organization to hire on an as-needed/on-demand, temporary basis to fulfill short- or long-term contracts that fill skills gaps. These are not the ‘temps’ of the past; instead, they range from blue collar, light industrial to highly skilled IT, engineering, accounting and HR professionals. The specifics of how organizations apply the definition depends on their industry. As a result, there are many ways to be a non-permanent employee.
