Now is a critical time to build a flexible and robust organization

If you have opened a newspaper or watched the news in recent months, you will know that the economic outlook looks gloomy with sky-high inflation impacting our daily lives and an anticipated recession threatening right in front of us.

Meanwhile, the talent market is still adapting to a new reality that was unveiled by the pandemic, which heavily impacted the way we work and the way we desire to work.

According to research, a blended workforce with a mix of permanent staff, interim hires and freelancers can yield a competitive advantage for companies by bolstering them to withstand economic turbulence and build a more flexible and robust workforce.
