2020 is expected to be a continuing worker-driven market. What makes it stand out as unique is an increased reliance on digital technology and the growth of the gig economy. While millennials have largely driven our more technology-focused workplace, they’re being joined by Generation Y, which has never lived in a world without smartphones.
Technology is the bridge between your company and your talent. For increased workforce engagement, you need to provide access to technology that makes their lives easier. It doesn’t stop with talent, either. Many of your clients will be increasing their use of technology in the workplace, and if you’re not there to embrace it, you may be missing out.
A variety of technological solutions that work for you and all of your users will help your company be more productive and efficient.
Technology and the Gig Economy
In the simplest terms, gig workers are not just looking for flexible jobs; they want easy to use technology to find them, too.
Today, when a gig is just a click away through multiple platforms, on-demand talent isn’t going to spend time trying to work out complicated systems. If they feel there’s a barrier between themselves and a job, they’ll move on to a simper process.
By employing the right technology in your company, you will not only attract top talent interested in short-term work but keep them engaged and active.
