Total Talent Management and the Contingent Workforce Paradox

Non-employees represent a greater percentage of the workforce, and this shift is driving a paradox. Organizations realize that in many ways they need to consider the contingent workforce similarly to how they manage internal staff - in the search for talent, in managing performance and even in retention or exit - but account for some key differences as well. This holistic approach to a company's workforce is referred to as total talent management.
This report by Spend Matters examines the similarities and differences between managing the permanent and contemporary workforce and:
  • Explains why the contingent workforce is growing
  • Further defines total talent management
