A recent study by Fast Company found that 74% of people find freelancing to be more appealing than ever. This way of working has seen a lot of growth due to the instability caused by the economic downturn and mass layoffs. Now, with many workers opting against full time and permanent roles, we see a rise in the external workforce. It's paramount that companies understand how to navigate this shift and leverage their external workforce layer thoughtfully.
In the latest episode of Workforces 3.0, we are joined by workforce strategy and talent acquisition expert, Monique Aguirre, who brings extensive experience from her time at Meta, Tesla and the San Francisco 49ers. We discuss her take on the current hiring market, what companies could do better when engaging with freelancers, and the trends shaping the future of the contingent workforce.
