Why this site, and why now?

As technology evolves, so does staffing. The nature of how we create and manage our teams has changed dramatically. Moreover, new working models have changed how work gets done, giving rise to an increased demand for freelance and remote work. According to PWC, 64 percent of millennials prefer to work from home, and by 2025, 70 percent of the workforce will work remotely at least one week out of the month (Global Workplace Analytics).

With the Talent Economy landscape affecting the way business gets done, companies are looking for a place to learn from experts, vet issues, test new staffing models, and engage with like-minded colleagues to better understand the many new Economies that are taking shape. In the Talent Economy, for example, an enterprise is buying the skill and expertise of the talent while optimizing a talent acquisition process to reduce the inefficiencies inherent in traditional employment and staffing. While many Fortune 500’s have adopted the Talent Economy, it’s new to many. Staffing.com aims to be a valuable resource for such companies looking to understand these new approaches to talent acquisition.
