How the Rise of the Gig Economy Is Challenging HR

Flexibility is the new employment. Freelancers, contractors and part-timers are leaving their stable full-time positions to “gig” their way to more flexibility and freedom from the 9-to-5 grind. 

The gig economy started as a trend, but it is now becoming an industry mainstay. Last year, 41 million American workers (consultants, freelancers, contractors, temporary, or on-call) generated $1.28 trillion in revenue for the US economy. 

The HR challenge? Current hiring and onboarding protocols cater to full-time employees only. Human Resource departments will have to change their methods and introduce new practices to adapt to hiring and onboarding gig workers.

Employee Onboarding in the Digital Workplace

Companies face fierce competition when it comes to attracting and retaining top talent. 

The average millennial stays at a job for 6-12 months, 10-20 times shorter than Baby Boomers and Gen Xers did. Considering that millennials make up some 75% of the workforce, it’s important to understand what millennials want from work and what they expect from their employers. Some 55% of millennials don’t feel fully engaged at work, and perhaps as a result, around 60% say they’re open to a better job opportunity, should one present itself.

While many businesses invest in modern office spaces and offer attractive perks like in-house baristas, free-beer Fridays and unlimited paid time off, they often neglect the internal processes that really shape company culture and impact employee turnover. Onboarding is one of these processes.

6 Real-World HR Automation Examples in Action

Attracting and retaining world-class talent is the #1 influencer of success in the 21st century. As a result, your HR employees play a critical role in your future prosperity. Yet, too many of them waste valuable time on manual HR processes that have become an administrative burden for growing organizations.

Drowning in paperwork, files, email threads, and other rote, repetitive, manual tasks has kept HR teams from performing at their best. 

Consider your typical onboarding process: You hire a new recruit. Many forms and days later, you’re finally ready to invite the new recruit to work in-house. That is, once you double- and triple-check your forms for errors, re-route the paperwork back to the new hire to fix the errors, route the form to all stakeholders and wait for signatures, and follow up to keep things moving along. 

Add to this employee vacation requests, expense claims, performance management and more, and keeping HR running smoothly can feel chaotic, if not impossible.

This situation is especially problematic if you’re focusing on business growth. Sustaining growth means improving the productivity of the HR team so they can focus on what’s important – talent.

So what is the solution?

Generic HR software requires an overhaul of your department to fit the demands of the software, and custom programming is, well, just plain expensive and time-consuming. 

Thankfully, there is another solution—and it’s cost-effective and relatively simple to implement. Enter HR automation.

In this post, we’ll cover:
