While the Federal government considers ways in which public policy and training programs can help solve the growing skills gap, U.S. employers must not wait to decide how they will address this pressing challenge now. In her article, “Talent Innovations Help U.S. Companies Get Ahead of the Skills Gap,” Randstad Sourceright CEO, Rebecca Henderson outlines how talent innovations such as predictive analytics and contingent talent strategies are helping employers stay ahead of their competition.
“A more mobile and contingent, skilled workforce requires U.S. employers to make important changes in their talent acquisition strategies. Highly connected workers have made it easier for companies to employ top talent located anywhere in the world. But remote workers also demand that companies create more flexible working options, such as variable work hours and job-sharing opportunities.”
