Organizations need to be able to flexibly scale their workforce to move quickly in today’s competitive environment. Tapping into gig, contract, and freelance workers is a great way for leaders to achieve workforce flexibility, but it means spending additional time sourcing the right people, filling open and variable shifts, and managing employment requirements that can vary across different geographies. 

At the same time, flexible work is a top priority for many people, and organizations are missing out on great talent from the gig economy. This is especially true in this new era of work with the rise of people looking to supplement their incomes through additional hours, gig and contract work, and side hustles.  

For organizations seeking this type of talent, overseeing this boundless workforce creates a complexity crisis that most companies and their systems are ill-equipped to handle. Many current approaches and technology solutions weren’t built with the ability to manage a flexible extended labor force and no longer meet the requirements for today’s businesses.  

A fragmented approach fails to create workforce flexibility 

Much of the current HCM technology landscape attempts to address these problems in a fragmented way. Many companies are struggling with using multiple vendors and products to help manage their full-time, part-time, and contingent workforce. These vendors and products are rarely connected, leaving leaders without a complete picture of their workforce. This struggle is often compounded with increased costs, operational headaches, and delays in the hiring process through multiple talent sources.  

A flexible workforce solution has the benefit of allowing organizations to augment their existing workforce while tapping into the freelance talent pool. The right technology can help employers remove barriers to accessing the gig economy. This gives workers flexibility in how and when they work and offers opportunities beyond driving and delivery gig work in industries like hospitality, retail, or distribution.  

With the introduction of Dayforce Flex Work, Dayforce becomes one of the first HCM technology companies to provide a single platform to help manage your contingent workforce needs alongside your existing workforce.2 Our vision is to empower you to manage talent smoothly from one platform, including internal employees and temporary, on-demand workers. 

Building a contingent workforce strategy   

You can prepare for your future workforce needs proactively by building a strong contingent workforce strategy — the perfect supplement to your existing workforce. With a single solution that integrates full-time, part-time, and temporary workers, managers can more easily anticipate and address seasonal demands or new projects requiring skillsets missing from the current workforce. 

Offering contingent work is also a great way to retain your top talent through flexible opportunities. Employees who want to scale back their hours or transition from full-time to part-time now have an avenue to continue contributing to your organization instead of leaving outright. Who better to provide additional support than your trusted, alumni talent who already knows how your organization works? 

But how can you find these short-term workers, especially when time is of the essence? That’s where a proactive contingent workforce solution comes in.
