The COVID-19 pandemic has catapulted the adoption of total talent in many ways. That’s the view of Kim Pope, chief operating officer at WilsonHCG. She made the comments during an interview about total talent with journalists at the Recruitment Process Outsourcing Association (RPOA).
Pope said organizations that, in the past, may have been slow to embrace change, have had to do it quickly.
She went on to explain that the renewed interest in total talent has varied depending on region, with some regions being quicker to welcome conversations about a holistic approach to talent. Organizations in APAC and North America have been faster to welcome those conversations, while those in Europe were a little slower.
There are also variations relating to industry, with companies in high-tech and consumer goods more open to total talent. And many organizations are scaling up their contingent workforces because of the flexibility, Pope explained.
