However, they are inclined to turn to flexible talent, with more than two-thirds of the Talent Intelligence Outlook survey respondents saying the right worker type can be permanent, temporary or independent. The same percentage (69%) believe the use of gig workers will be critical in the next 12 months for resourcing requirements. Other top drivers of the workforce include employers' growing expectation for employee performance and an increasing scarcity of talent. Surprisingly, Dutch human capital leaders don't view business competitors as the primary obstacle to winning skilled talent; only 28% view companies in their industries as competition for talent. Instead, a bigger portion of respondents view organizations with the same internal skill sets (50%) and companies with visible brand presence (39%) as main rivals for talent. In fact, 36% said companies frequently featured in the media pose a bigger threat. To help strengthen their employer brands, Dutch companies are investing in technologies that will help better use business intelligence, with 59% saying their companies are allocating moderate to significant resources to predictive analytics. Nearly as many (55%) say they are investing in content management platforms, and more than half (53%) are investing in employee self service. Three takeaways • Dutch human capital leaders increasingly believe flexible talent is an effective way to address skills shortages, which may accelerate the adoption of an integrated talent management model. In fact 81% say they will either definitely or probably implement such a program in the next 12 months. • There is also a very favorable view of automation and machine learning as human replacements in the workforce, with 72% believing they will have a positive impact on business. • Companies here view a shift in the skills they will need in the next 3 to 5 years, with 44% seeing a greater demand in marketing roles and the same number expecting a decline in demand for operational and administrative skills.
