Today, many businesses and HR professionals are turning to project-based hiring to help alleviate the pain of sourcing temporary candidates.
Here are three ways project-based hiring benefit our client's business:
Cultural shifts in employee utilization.
In a recent report by McKinsey and Company, many companies are not utilizing talent correctly. When a hire is typically made, the candidate is generally given a project (or two), plopped into a functional silo, and provided a reporting manager. As the article points out, this is not the best way to utilize talent. A more optimized approach is to hire a candidate for a very acute business need (aka, project-based hiring).
Perhaps, the most beneficial reason why your next hire should come from a platform is that you're in control of what candidate you source for hiring. Unlike working through a consulting or staffing firm, you generally don't have any control over what candidates are being sourced, but with a platform, you're immediately in control. From a business standpoint, project-based hiring gives your firm the ability to expand and contrast based on business conditions. So in other words, if times are bad, there are no mass layoffs to avoid. When times are good, contracting out to a just-in-time labor pool gives you the ability to hire on-demand.
Why pay to post a job on a job site, when you can source a candidate for zero service fees in real-time? Since most project-based consultants only charge when you source a candidate for hire, you get to forgo any traditional fees that a firm typically pays to source a candidate. This helps businesses only pay for the value they receive.
In conclusion, project-based resourcing makes it very easy for businesses and HR professionals to source their next freelance business candidates. It's giving companies a new way to discover, hire, and manage talent on-demand. So the next time you see a job requisition comes through, don't forget to visit a platform near you to find your next best hire.
