The blended employee-freelance model workforce can lead to great things for any company, but it takes the right plan to keep everyone aligned. John Winsor of Open Assembly recently dove in with Jon Younger PhD to learn how to set your team up for success.
Is Your Business At Risk Of Becoming Obsolete? Here’s What You Need To Know To Prep For The Decade Ahead
At Open Assembly we are constantly on the lookout for new data and analyses that outline trends in the future of work. To start off 2020—the new decade!—we did a deep dive into the latest data, reviewing and analyzing dozens of in-depth reports aggregating work data from across the globe to identify key trends.
Those of you in the Future of Work space have not only identified a new industry or category that you and your company can sell into, but you’ve also identified a product or a service that serves a key market need, and solves the most prickly pain points of important players.
Many companies have forgotten the truth of what their product is all about. Has yours? Is it time for your company to dig into the culture, find out what customers really think, and understanding they hold on to?
It used to be, you’d take one job and try to stick with it for decades. That’s not how work happens anymore.
Open talent models are challenging the structure of traditional HR. Here’s how open sourcing can change HR and business-as-usual for the better.
As companies across the globe continue to hire contractors to build their business, the landscape of modern work is rapidly changing. Traditional offices are being replaced by digital nomads who regard a strong Wi-Fi signal as good as any workspace; businesses are realizing the potential of using contractors for specialized work rather than full-time, salaried employees.
40% of today’s workers are expected to take part in the gig economy in 2020. These are impressive numbers. But who are the tens of millions of people who have bravely eschewed traditional work roles in favor of working independently?
In a wildly changing work landscape in which on-demand talent models are gaining ground, there will always be skeptics of open models standing right alongside the early adopters. One stance is not more right than the other. Businesses need the deep questioners just as much as evangelists. The key to moving forward is determining how these two functions or personality types can build trust—keeping business on course while embracing opportunity at the same time.
Open models are an exciting part of the future of work and innovation. Every year, more and more companies are choosing open models for innovation, blending freelance with in-house talent. But that transition can be tricky for traditional employees.
