#InsightsIn5: Filling the Value Void

In our current environment many organizations have been forced to make tough choices about their workforce and many have downsized and do not have the ability, or appetite, to quickly refill those positions.

This has created a value void for organizations that no longer have key functional support roles and much-needed brainpower and experience on their teams. Equally, for those companies that have never benefited from these resources in the past, on-demand-expertise has never been so sought after and needed in these times.

Typically, organizations have filled senior and specialized roles in workplace and hospitality with full time employees. 2020 has significantly impacted this, providing an opportunity to reimagine how these services are provided. The 'gig economy', or 'independent contractor', offers up a variety of solutions to fill these holes.

"Workloads and projects will increase; however, they may be sporadic and having seasoned professionals available on a freelance basis can help companies retain and maintain their edge."

In addition to specific project or operational support, other areas that can have tremendous impact for companies in this time is to outsource functions such as Diversity & Inclusion, Wellbeing, Customer Experience, and Sustainability.

"Companies need to tackle these essential platforms and can utilize the experience through the consultant network to address these important issues."

The impacts of COVID-19 have caused re-evaluation of work and life and many experienced leaders want balance going into the future. Large numbers are turning to consulting to provide this opportunity and a new chapter. This work allows them to use their knowledge and experience while working on several projects at once while enjoying the flexibility of choice and time.

The benefits to companies include lower costs, compared to a full-time employee; access to experience that brings innovation and fresh ideas; and the ability to flex resources based on actual needs and projects.

Why not focus on your core business and let specialists fill the value void?
