Talent acquisition is under pressure now more than ever to fulfill the shifting needs of their organizations with high quality talent and greater agility. This imperative is driven mainly by economic instability and the talent shortage that is only growing as older generations leave the workforce. The fact that most organizations may count as much as 25% of their workforce as contract talent only reinforces the need for quality and agility in talent acquisition strategy. However, many organizations have those responsible for sourcing and managing contract workers (procurement) separated from those responsible for sourcing and managing full-time employees (talent acquisition and HR). This separation prevents talent acquisition leaders from seeing the complete blended workforce, thereby making it difficult to supply their organizations with the talent they need, when they need it. This session will discuss what goes into making a blended workforce approach effective, how organizations can get procurement owners of contract talent on the same page as the talent acquisition owners of FTE recruitment, and how they can ensure a great career experience for all candidates, free agents and employees alike.
