Internal resourcing in the gig economy


Would you like to participate in a future Virtual Roundtable?

Most large employers are keen to fill positions mainly with internal talent, and to encourage internal movement of people. Unfortunately, several factors make it difficult – not least the natural reluctance of managers to let their best people go. What can be done?

In this roundtable, Will Peachey, Group People Supply Chain Officer at Capgemini – who handle 300,000 internal job requests per year – argued that efforts to transform managers are doomed to failure. A bigger rethink is needed: What does it mean to be a manager in the gig economy? We debated this, and shared a range of other pragmatic solutions to create a healthy and dynamic internal labour market.
