Why You Should Care About Total Workforce Visibility

IT leaders are typically responsible for the largest cohort of external workers in an organization. Lack of worker data means that strategic workforce planning for this or any other external worker population is impossible. 

Key Challenges:

  • 85% of organizations anticipate an increase in IT projects in the next year to respond to the impacts of the pandemic
  • Highly skilled technologists are needed to help fill skills gaps in critical digital transformations
  • Worker misclassification can result in massive cost to the organization (i.e., contingent workers classified as SOW-based workers)

Organizational Self Assessment

As an IT leader, are you lacking a scalable approach to managing the external workforce? Are you able to  deliver visibility into cost, skills, certifications, and detailed work history across the entire workforce, allowing your organization to plan for the future? In order to know for sure, here are a few questions to consider. If you can't answer these questions, don't worry, you're not alone.

Many organizations struggle to understand or capitalize on their extended workforce simply because they don’t know what they don’t know. 

Can you calculate the number of extended workers?

This includes freelancers, gig workers, independent contractors, consultants, outsourced workers, and SOW workers.

Do you have visibility into worker skills?

It's important to understand the skill sets you’re lacking across your workforce and workers that may need to be reskilled to keep up with market demands.

Are your workers classified correctly?

It is critical to understand how every one of your workers is classified to avoid legislative and compliance risk. 

Do you know what your total talent spend is?

The ability to report on and provide predictive analysis on your total talent spend, including your extended workforce, from one system is imperative.

Are you able to track diversity, equity & inclusion?

Visibility into DE&I metrics across your entire workforce means you're not missing out on the benefits of a diverse contingent labor population. It also means you know where you're achieving success and what may need attention.
