Signals Accelerating the Evolution

Unemployment is an unhealthy dependency on employers

  • Vicious recruitment cycle: erroneous hiring, misalignment, poor performance, business affordability, underutilization, rehiring 
  • VUCA world (Volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous), high real estate costs

Entrepreneurial mindset of global workforce

  • Global talent is pivoting towards an entrepreneurial and microservice mindset
  • Sense of control, flexible work timings, work-life balance and easy transition into retirement

SMEs are unable to afford skilled digital talent

  • SMEs can’t afford a full digital team. Experienced talent demands higher salaries
  • Quality talent is pulled by larger organizations such as Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Emerging unicorns

Talent selection and qualification is a challenge

  • Current marketplaces use limited checks to assess service quality (reviews/ ratings)
  • Not rich enough data to select new staff/ freelancer/ agency

Freelancing lacks reliability and accountability

  • Freelancing engagement models can’t promise reliability and accountability
  • Difficult to handle unmanaged resources, and consolidate multiple vendors to realize a unified ROI
