Nontraditional Workers: CHRO Predictions and Talent Strategies


October 2018 | Publication

Due to fast-changing business environments, organizations see increased need for an agile and flexible workforce that includes nontraditional workers. At the same time that demand for nontraditional workers is high, the labor market is tightening, and such workers may not be widely available. It is critical that CHROs focus on nontraditional workers—identifying them, recruiting them, engaging and retaining them—as they do with traditional employees in their workforce. This report examines how organizations are leveraging nontraditional work arrangements to meet business demands as well as approaches to attracting and engaging them. It includes a survey of business executives leading initiatives around nontraditional workers.
