The Australasian Talent Conference was held last week in Sydney, June 21-22.  Whether you were fortunate enough to attend or missed this year's ATC, take a look at our run down of the event here...

It’s true. Engaging a contingent workforce comes with a host of advantages: flexibility, access to specialist skills, a boost to productivity & output, reduced head-count, AND reduced talent costs… name just a few!

However, to achieve these benefits the only way to go is BEST PRACTICE.

So…we’ve provided the basic road-map (in the form of the four videos below) for you to achieve a best practice contractor management program. The Four Pillars of Best Practice Contractor Management.


Is Your Contingent Workforce in a Twist? 

The workforce of today continues to evolve. One of the major shifts is the move to a greater percentage of non-permanent workers. Technology, shifting demographics, economic uncertainty and globalisation all play a part in this current workplace dynamic. Managing workforce complexity requires a new set of skills, strategies and tools to optimise the entire worker population: from contingent worker to senior manager, the Total Talent Management approach is more relevant today than ever before.A
On Day One of the ATC Annual Conference, Darren Morris – Head of Client Services at CXC Global, hosted a World Café roundtable, focusing on TTM. The round table session explored Total Talent Management, the myth or the reality.  The discussion uncovered what TTM looks like within Australian companies, what’s holding companies back, the successes of organisations like Viva Energy, AND a look at the future for TTM.

ATC 2017 Annual Conference: DAY 1


On day 1 of the ATC 2017 Annual Conference, of the many fantastic presentations we were lucky enough to enjoy, the concept of Total Talent Management is one we want to comment on the most, given the learnings are so important for better engagement of contingent workers into an organisation.

Here are some of what we learned, relating to Total Talent Management:

We interviewed Trevor Vas, CEO of ATC, on his takeaways from Day 1 at the #ATC2017 Annual Conference.   As always, we were excited to hear Trevor’s insights from Day One’s high calibre speakers…

Engaging talent - contingent or perm - requires human connection for prospective workers to feel inspired & elevated. Positive HR language & a positive recruitment process goes a long way to achieve this.....

Innovation was a constant theme at this year's event. Not only in the realm of technology, but across all facets of talent attraction, engagement, integration and management. The confidence to innovate - at both an organisational and talent level - looks like the key to business success.
