Working remotely has never been as popular as it is now, clearly demonstrating that its perks outweigh its disadvantages. There’s no need to get up early to commute or dress to impress. You can even work together with people without being in the same country, let alone the same room. Given where technology was 30 years ago, it’s hard to believe how far cloud computing has come. Ever since the mid-1990s, it became a virtual space that every company started to leverage to their advantage. The social benefits of the cloud expanded possibilities, allowing us to share, be creative and innovate together online. We are in a place where the next logical step is the digital labor market.
In fact, work is no longer solely defined by permanent jobs, and the Human Cloud made it so. It is not a new phenomenon, but its importance reached new, exciting heights over the last two years. Enhancing traditional work models, the Human Cloud functions as an online labor market. It enables work arrangements of various kinds, connecting job opportunities and specialists from all around the globe in a virtual world. This has also caused a shift in mentality and working terms preferences. What had once been deemed a form of work that could only appeal to youngsters fleeing from the corporate world, became the new reality. According to the latest report from the Staffing Industry Analysts, the US temporary staffing revenue will grow by 11% this year to a total of $134.7 billion. This means that it will surpass the pre-pandemic level of 2019.
With that in mind, and staffing models shifting fast, it can be overwhelming and challenging for everyone to adjust. It can feel like the odds are always against your business. However, the Human Cloud can allow you to find new projects, resulting in business growth that would be otherwise impossible to achieve. It can also empower you to hire more specialists to serve the market better. The best part is that employees have the flexibility to work from a location of their choosing, which gives companies using the Human Cloud greater access to the talent and skills they need. It also reduces costs and time of hire. This is backed up by the recent analysis by Gartner, which states that the global cloud adoption will continue to expand rapidly – the end-user spending on cloud services will grow by 21,7% in 2022, exceeding $482 billion. Only two years ago this figure stood at $313 billion – organizations certainly are eager to adapt to the changes in the marketplace.
Clearly, physical full-time hiring has been a significant pain point for many organizations working in a traditional environment, but it shouldn’t come in the way of their growth. By using Talent Alpha’s Human Cloud technology, companies can now form strategic partnerships with Software Houses and get access to IT specialists from anywhere – there are currently over 500 partners with over 25000 specialists on the Talent Alpha platform.
