With the exponential rise of the gig economy, it’s clear that a hybrid workforce is the future. The potential for accessing a broader talent pool and the need to balance remote and onsite work requires a fresh approach. Learn how talent intelligence and personalized hiring strategies can make your organization stand out in the hybrid marketplace in our latest blog.
Hybrid working has become a part of today’s work culture. It opens up access to newer and larger talent pools while allowing for new ways for people to collaborate and feel like a part of a nurturing workplace culture, that a fully remote setup didn’t allow.
Hybrid workplaces come with new possibilities and new parameters. Along with access to a wider talent pool, the location parameter comes into play. Complete remote working allows access to top talent from the world over, whereas hybrid models will require the talent to be present in the same city.
Talent Acquisition leaders should leverage talent intelligence-led insights like demographic ratios, preferences, etc., to determine talent spread and talent density for a particular job or skill requirement. Is talent too widely spread for a particular job family? Or is preferred talent locally available? Then, use this data to craft an optimal hybrid workforce strategy.
Crafting an Optimal Hybrid Workforce Strategy:
Hiring in this hybrid world is far from straightforward. What works for one workplace may or may not work for another. Organizations need to work out an optimal blend of virtual and in-person hiring strategies to make themselves irresistible to candidates. It requires workforce planning that draws from talent data like skills demand, fair compensation, demographic ratios, and other talent insights. Powerful employer branding using multi-channel capabilities, weaving onsite and remote employee stories to showcase your hybrid culture, and targeting the right audience groups in extremely crowded digital platforms will play a pivotal role. Integrate immersive technology and tools to source and assess candidate skills locally or even globally to match your talent requirements.
Hybrid models offer the advantage of bringing you required critical skills from anywhere in the world. They can be sourced from previously excluded location-bound hiring grounds or from a lower-cost location, thereby reducing talent acquisition costs.
