Internal Resourcing in the Gig Economy

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.

Participating organisations:
Allianz, Capgemini, Coty, GlaxoSmithKline, Pitney Bowes, Tesco Bank, UBS, Unilever.
