When having Eurovision is not just about a song contest

May 11, 2017 Katy Roberts

Eurovision – that over-the-top, wonderfully explosive onslaught, culturally-rich song contest that graces many a TV screen at this time of year.  But when is having Eurovision less a late night excuse for streamers and sparklers and more about the obligatory survival mandate for your organisation? When it’s time to change.

It’s no surprise that within the next few years, the worlds of UK-based businesses will look remarkably different to what they do now. Brexit looms, Article 50 has been triggered, and organisations all over the UK, and even Europe, are being forced to re-evaluate their long-term strategy plan.  So, just how are businesses looking to maintain access to the best skill that the rest of the world, and Europe, has to offer?

Getting what you need, when you need it

Traditionally, cross-border hiring could take anything from 49 days to 6 months – depending on the level of skills, commitment to relocation agreements, administrative red-tape and bureaucratic process. Typically, organisations who were after the best, were forced to undertake endless interviews and hoop-jumping in order to secure the expertise their organisation needed. The beauty of a new way of working, powered by technology that supports it, is that organisations now have the opportunity to hand-pick the expertise they need, and could be up and running with a new member of their team, within a matter of days. With over 30,000 independent consultants from all over the world, Talmix offers their clients a quicker, more cost-effective way of getting what you need, when you need it. 

Visa-less, hassle-free, hiring

When once the process of securing the best global talent available may have included work permits, long-term visas, financial and reputational security, hiring the best skills and expertise for your organisation has become a lot simpler, and accessible. 

Technology is evolving at such a rapid pace that our working worlds look vastly different to what they once were.  Through talent marketplaces like Talmix, organisations now have the competitive advantage of securing the expertise they need without unnecessary administration, long-term commitments and insecurity. 

And we’d say, as do many of the clients that use Talmix, that certainly deserves 12 points. 

If you are ready to embrace a new way of working, then talk to us today.
