VIRAL KNOWLEDGE: The “genioux facts” knowledge news

Extra-condensed knowledge

The latest MIT SMR-Deloitte survey on the future of the workforce finds that most managers consider employees and external workers — including contractors, service providers, app developers, and gig workers — to be part of their workforce. 
  • This calls for an integrated approach to workforce management and has led some executives to the idea of a workforce ecosystem. 
  • This report explains what workforce ecosystems are, reflects on the trends driving their emergence, discusses their benefits and challenges, and identifies shifts in management practices associated with creating and managing a workforce ecosystem.
  • Our research to date offers compelling evidence that many of today’s executives expect workforce ecosystems to be a significant part of their futures.
