The Talent Economy Podcast
How Will Changing Consumer Trends Affect the World of Work?
Are you the right person for the job?
Nowadays, companies pushing to hire the best talent – but the talent is looking for more flexibility around the way they work and live. It’s not all about just getting the paycheck anymore – it’s about having the choice to find work that aligns with their values and aspirations as well. With this added freedom at work, matching up the best people with the right jobs is extremely crucial for everyone involved.
In this episode, I talk with John Healy, the Vice President and Managing Director of the Office of the Future of Work at Kelly Services. As a workplace disruptor himself, John understands the intrinsic value of connecting people to jobs that will enrich their lives, no matter where they are in the world.
At a high level, John and I discuss the current state of workforce dynamics, trends, and the ways that industry leaders are adapting – or not adapting – to these major shifts. As we get deeper into the conversation, John shares his insights about the experience of independent workers, how clients and freelancers are able to get to know one another, and what freelancers really are looking for in the work itself.
