The days of contracted talent coming in, producing a report, and then leaving are gone
Ottawa, ON (Vocus) November 2, 2010
Perhaps one way to decrease chronic unemployment and under-utilization of consultants and advisors is to make them more relevant and effective at being the special teams for companies who are nervous about deeper, long term commitments. Using the FuseDiligence platform, very specific and, often, part time expert or specialty work can be effectively contracted out.
"There are many specialty functions that often get pushed to the back even though they are critical to the long term health and viability of the business. Anyone who watches the NFL knows that special teams, i.e. kick return, have become as important as the main offense and defense team - you can play with great offense and defense but, more often than not, you win with special teams," says Greg Waite, CEO of FuseTalk.
With FuseDiligence, an unemployed person can effectively transform themselves into a franchise and, instead of having one employer, provide their specialty expertise to three or four employers. You can even scale, and become an employer yourself.
Overwhelmed employees can use outside talent, experts and expertise more effectively than any other approach. FuseDiligence connects you to business improvement and business intelligence processes - always on, always current.
"The days of contracted talent coming in, producing a report, and then leaving are gone," says Waite. "To keep the yard sticks moving forward, we need to stay engaged and work on continuous improvement. Capture, score, assess, discuss, debate, make decisions, plan, improve - go, go, go."
