Jody notes that companies are using on-demand talent to accelerate digital transformations and address near-term revenue needs as they adapt to COVID-related business constraints. The way companies tap independent talent reveals much about the state of the economy—with companies shifting from urgent needs to long-term growth and strategic initiatives as markets begin to stabilize.
The two also dive into how companies can efficiently use independents across the enterprise—from procurement to HR to heads of strategy—and the changes in mindset that are required for business leaders to embrace working differently.
