Technology is disrupting every aspect of business, not only by transforming the products and services sold, and the way they are sold, but also by dramatically reshaping how employees work and the nature of that work.

Leaders need to realize what is required to enable their entire workforce, including all contingent workers, to flourish and step into the future.

Workforce demographics are changing rapidly: talent is becoming scarcer, labor costs are rising and, by 2020, Millennials (born between 1980 and 1995) will account for more than one-third of the global workforce.

None of these statements are new, and disruption is top of mind for most businesses, which means they need to embrace disruption and change, while remaining vigilant of the risks.
