In the future, paying for work by the outcome will be the norm. Get ready to hire a new breed of transient workers.
TRU uncovered an idea so radical it will dramatically disrupt the field of recruiting over the next 18 months.

But before we set out to change your mind, we must sketch in some context. In particular, to understand the changing future of recruiting, we must take a detour to study the growing power and influence of the knowledge worker.

No longer is competitive advantage dictated by brute scale or capital; companies now gain an edge by out-designing, out-forecasting, out-strategizing – that is, out-thinking their competitors.
