5 Trends in the Workplace:

  1. How we connect with others, people are looking for connection.
  2. Remote work is only the start of what is changing.  Schools are helping students to be more adaptable.
  3. Best in class, will do whatever it takes.
  4. Top talent is challenging to retaining and they may not want to stay doing the same thing.
  5. Transparency has shifted the narrative like New York City requiring salarage ranges being public.

Flexibility in the Workplace:

  • Top performers know how to find the work that is really interesting to them.
  • Engage with high performers to know what they really want to do.
  • More project-based assignments and part-time work.
  • Engage more with top performers to find out if they are satisfied.

Four Ways Escalent is Helping Organizations:

  1. Teams at companies are overwhlemed and a dedicated team helps scaling up and down at a moment's notice.
  2. Offering staff augmentation on a pilot basis.
  3. Creating dedicated teams of skilled workers.
  4. Ability to have agile teams that can support in different time zones.

Risk Avoidance:

  • A Pilot helps avoid the cost of a full time employee
  • In addition to flexible hours, it allows employees to focus on strategy to bring this forward

Winning Leadership Buy-In “For a dedicated team, I would recommend a pilot and that allows the brand team to try us out, and see how things work for them and tweak it along the way. Then we can decide if we're going to scale up or down or what we're going to do next.  In this scenrio there really is no risk.”- Kathy Relias
