An in-depth look at how, why, and for whom work has radically changed. The gold watch days are over. The relationship between employers and employees has changed. It used to be that we went to work for a company, stayed with them for life, got the gold watch and a nice pension and retired.
The gig economy is not something inflicted on the workforce, to get out of paying benefits or full salaries, it being driven by us, because this is how we WANT to work today. By 2020 roughly half our workforce will be independent.
How did we get here? After the great recession, corporate America has lost its luster as a safe place to spend your days collecting a paycheck and steady benefits. Now enter the millennials who are forcing us to change the model. They want authentic leadership, honest feedback and strong mentorship, maybe they are just forcing us to finally get it right.
We are moving away from a full time workforce and skill requirements to multiple workforces and technologies defining delivery. The old style hierarchal leadership is on its way out, along with big mahogany desks and side bar of scotch.
In Death of the Gold Watch; Terri Gallagher, a vanguard on the gig workforce and its impact to organizations will discuss what has changed and how organizations need to change the way they think about workforce strategy and talent acquisition. Not only from an operational perspective but at the human level. The old paradigm of top down, command and control leadership is no longer relevant. It's about the individual today; how to engage, inspire and accommodate flexible work structures, engaging and interesting work, in a dynamic environment.
Terri Gallagher is the founder of Gallagher and Consultants, a Gig Workforce Solutions company and she wrote this book to be a "how-to" to navigate our new normal workforce and understand how to engage workers across the talent supply chain. To ultimately build and enable dynamic workforce models that are needed in today's new Industrial Revolution.
Chapter 1: The New Workforce Landscape
An overview of what many are calling the “new industrial revolution”’ rise of the gig workforce, a growing millennial population who think and work differently, and where the “side hustle” was coined.
Chapter 2: Radical Changes to Employer/Employee relationship
The Great Recession changed the agreement; all bets are off regarding employee loyalty to big corporations and the ‘safety and stability” big enterprise organizations have promised for years. No more Gold Watch.
Chapter 3: Workforce Strategy – New Paradigm
Examines the challenges companies today are having adapting to the new workforce landscape, and navigating how to integrate independent consultants, gig workers, contractors into their workforce planning that traditionally was mostly about permanent talent.
Chapter 4: What is the Gig Workforce?
Explores the various terms and definitions of the spectrum of workers that fall under the “gig” definition and where they fit into the total labor population. Will explore how they came about and the explosive growth of this workforce
Chapter 5: Why the gig workforce is flipping the script on how and why we work
How work is performed and the way we work has radically changed. We are moving to a flexible organizational structure; now it’s about co-creating rather than managing.
Chapter 6: Why leveraging this workforce effectively is good business strategy
Some of your best talent can only be found in these communities; by choice. Leveraging a dynamic talent supply chain strategy is a competitive differentiator; we will talk about why.
Chapter 7: How to leverage the gig workforce effectively and where they fit into your organization
How does this workforce fit in with your traditional talent strategy? What is the best way to leverage this workforce as a competitive differentiator?
Chapter 8: What are the Technology Changes enabling the integration of this workforce
Will explore the technology ecosystem of on-demand workforce platforms; freelancer systems, talent acquisition technology that enables the seamless curation, vetting and delivery of this talent and integration into your organization.
Chapter 9: What will a future state organization look like from a workforce mix?
A view into what a typical organization structure will look like from a talent perspective; mix of permanent, gig, cloud, contingent labor and how they work together
Chapter 10: Freedom to have Flexibility, Autonomy and Creativity in your work – the new Gold Watch
Talent is a key differentiator for a company’s competitive position. What is the new reward system to keep this “fluid” workforce attracted, engaged, productive for your enterprise?
The "who wants to know" audience are HR and Talent Leaders, Procurement execs, Technology leaders, who want to understand the impacts of the gig workforce and the technology that is the delivery system for organizations and talent strategies. How does it impact talent acquisition, purchasing of commoditized labor, where does it all fit in? We hear from and consult with these leaders every day and they want answers and guidance, in simple no nonsense terms. They want a playbook to understand this workforce and how to leverage it to elevate their workforce strategies. They want to understand the technology changes and evolution that make this new workforce landscape hum and tick. They want simple, no nonsense answers to understand this new workforce landscape and what it means to them. This book is also for all the HUMANS who are a part of this new normal workforce and how they fit into and are driving the new paradigm.
Terri Gallagher is an industry leader with 20+ years of experience in enterprise gig workforce strategies.
Her experience as a thought leader and workforce solutions disruptor has enabled her to provide best in class gig workforce solutions for several multi-national clients across industry sectors. She is also an international speaker and writer, and has been featured in multiple industry publications.
Terri developed a trademarked an ecosystem in a frenzied late night session after being frustrated with the blind sightedness of industry leaders in the big staffing sector, who were not connecting with what their clients truly needed. She wanted to rise above providing gig workforce solutions that were outdated and inflexible that put the customer first to allow a more innovative approach not bound by technology alliances or partnerships restricting the options for clients.
Her ecosystem approach is a fluid and dynamic model that leverages best of breed talent, technology, and alliance partners to provide contingent workforce and total talent management solutions. This ecosystem approach ensures agility and speed in all phases of talent supply chain; staffing strategy, change management, talent acquisition technology selection and performance, analytics, operations, solutions, quality and efficiency.
Will leverage existing population of social media email lists
and contacts (3000+) to promote this book. As an established author and with growing followers and client base, will leverage this book as a useful guide to navigate the gig workforce economy and landscape. This audience (and current client base of fortune 100/500 clients) is already interested in
this topic and has engaged heavily with previous published articles, LinkedIn posts, etc.
Have established social media presence on Twitter, LinkedIn,
Facebook, YouTube, snapchat and will promote heavily the book and video.
Will draft press release to promote release of book.
While total followers is relatively low for social media, the
engagement is very high. Have a couple speaking engagements coming up in Q1 and will promote heavily. The author is also well established thought leader an expert in the field of leveraging gig workforce and will lend credibility and momentum to this book.
Here are some published articles that I had already written; which give an example of my writing:
