Internal Talent Mobility: Creating Inside Gigs

2020 Annual Conference & Exposition
Make the gig economy work for you and your organization, even if the legal environment has not caught up.

In an era of rapid change and disruption, companies need to apply the concept of the gig economy inside their organization to share talent across boundaries by dynamically matching and deploying skills to the work. This creates competitive advantage around an employee experience that both democratizes work and unleashes internal capacity. In this session, you will learn about a new, and quite disruptive, talent operating model that facilitates an organization to dynamically match their internal talent to project-based opportunities within the company. While internal talent mobility has traditionally been about changing jobs to create learning, we are proposing an approach that is more agile and simply makes room for a project. The benefits of getting work done in this new and more agile approach to work will be to increase employee engagement, improve continuous learning opportunities and improve organizational innovation and productivity. This session describes a bold new talent operating model that helps organizations to operate in a more agile manner. It allows your employees to bring their best selves to work while offering a platform that encourages continuous reskilling to prepare them for the changing skills required by your organization.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the business case to change the way we work.
  • Gain a new talent operating model that changes our approach to work.
  • Learn the six core principles that support the inside gig.
  • Explore a case study to demonstrate the ROI of this new approach to work.
