There is an ongoing debate in Australian business about the need for more female leaders. Confronted by the lack of leadership development opportunities for young women in the workplace, Sarah Liu decided to do something about it.

 

In 2012, Liu, who is also the founder of Gemini3, founded The Dream Collective, in order to encourage employers in Australia to shift their approach from focusing on the senior executive level towards developing entry-level talent.

 

“Australian corporates need to fast shift their approach from focusing on the senior executive level to turning their attention to the pipeline of young female talent coming through their doors,” Liu said.

How PwC and The Washington Post Are Finding and Hiring External Talent

Posted on March 30th, 2016 by The Learning Factor

Corporations across the globe are increasing their use of external talent. In the U.S. alone, companies are engaging roughly 6.4 million independent contractors, freelancers, and other types of contingent workers. They’re doing this because hiring independent workers on a contingent basis increases business flexibility and agility, provides access to hard-to-hire specialized talent, and potentially reduces costs.

 

Because of these benefits, contingent or contract-based external talent already makes up about one-third of the average large corporation’s total workforce. This percentage is expected to grow in the coming years.
