They are hiring boomerang workers (retirees) to fill open positions.

The latest paper from TAPFIN explores this need for more sophisticated analytics.

However, as global economic recovery has increased pressure on talent markets, employers are coming to understand that the right RPO relationship must go beyond the expectations set in traditional service level agreements.
Globally, the working-age population is on the decline. At the same time, low-skilled workers exceed demand while high-skill workers are in short supply. For the foreseeable future, it appears there will continue to be more buyers (employers) than there is product to buy (talent). The companies that come out on top will be the ones that learn when it’s best to buy talent and when it’s more effective to build it. And the answers may not be as obvious as they seem.
Talent has long been a critical differentiator for organizations, fueling a race for the best and brightest individuals that has been raging for nearly half a century. Even today, with high levels of global unemployment, competition among employers to attract skilled workers has never been more fierce.
With unemployment at or near record levels in many countries, positions in the skilled trades, sales, technical work and engineering remain the most difficult for employers to fill globally, according to the new Manpower survey of nearly 39,000 employers in 33 countries.
As economic conditions improve, having a blueprint for growth and thinking differently about talent acquisition strategies is what will help companies drive their businesses forward.
The current economic crisis has changed the employment landscape. A major struggle is the effort to manage operating costs while investing in talent to maximize performance.

Today’s global workforce is on the move like never before. Macro-economic forces, including globalization and technological revolutions, provide individuals even more choices of how, where and when they want to work. While this is great news for talented job seekers, it is an increasing pain point for many employers who are discovering that finding the right talent where and when they need it most is not an easy task.
Relying on contingent labor as a scalable component of the workforce allows for rapid expansion in times of growth and for quick scaling back as needs wane. Teams can be built, dismantled, and reconstructed to meet ever-changing demands.
As the first to market a solution, TAPFIN delivers a comprehensive, full lifecycle approach to Services Procurement Management (SPM) that includes a thorough assessment of your current policies and practices, RFX workflows, project analytics and vendor performance.

The changes in the nature and extent of the consumption of contingent stafﬁ ng have been dramatic and compelling.

Services Procurement Management (SPM) brings to the procurement of projects and services what Contingent Workforce Management (CWM) brings to the procurement of contingent labor. Similar to CWM, organizations that implement SPM can realize significant cost savings and efficiency improvements by optimizing how they procure and engage third-party providers.
Today more than ever before, success is measured by how well an organization adapts to changing labor market conditions, attracts key talent and executes on global strategies at the local level.
