Guest Blog – Ardent Partner’s Fourth Annual Edition of its State of Contingent Workforce Management Research Report is Here!

The concept of the “gig economy” has become commonplace around the globe, one of the hottest business trends in years. Although some hardened corporate executives may choose to eschew new business movements in favor of decisions and strategies formulated on “gut” feeling or personal experience, the very truth of the matter is that the social, economic, business, political, and consumer impact of the gig economy has blurred the lines of contingent workforce management and an organizations’ overall talent acquisition and management.

The gig economy is no business fad, but rather a demonstrative force that is actively leaving its mark on businesses across the world. At the end of the day, the real business impact of the gig economy is quite simple: with talent as a key competitive differentiator, enterprises must adapt to its global shifts or watch as both young and experienced talent pass them by.

With this in mind, Ardent Partners is excited to publish the fourth annual edition of its State of Contingent Workforce Management research report, which not only highlights the major shifts within the non-employee workforce industry, but also illuminates how organizations today can adapt to the “new world of work.”

The new research study highlights:

  • The growing notion of the “gig economy” and what it means for today’s businesses.
  • The capabilities and attributes of Best-in-Class contingent workforce management programs.
  • The many outlets of innovation that are impacting the non-employee workforce industry.
  • The true definition of the “future of work” and how it will shape CWM programs for years to come, and;
  • A series of strategies and solutions for companies looking to adapt to a new world of work.
