In this episode, we talk about Total Workforce Solutions and the evolution that organisations undergo when they start the process of implementing the model.
Total workforce is a growing trend for organisations grappling with the changing talent landscape. The model provides a central view and way to manage all talent at an organisation – both employees and contingent workers. In a total workforce program, both talent acquisition and workforce management come together for a holistic approach to talent.
This is a relatively new concept and is still considered aspirational because very few companies have adopted a true Total Workforce Solutions model. Implementing a Total Workforce Solution is a long-term process. Rather than a one-time implementation, it’s most helpful to think of total workforce as an evolution.
To talk about that evolution, Jennifer Knippenberg, the Global Leader, Client Strategy for PeopleScout joins the podcast. She is focused on optimising our client delivery operations by evaluating and creating strategies that focus on people, process and technology. Jennifer has more than 17 years of direct talent acquisition expertise specialising in strategic recruitment, account delivery and integrated solutions serving in a variety of roles within RPO, MSP, staffing and corporate recruiting.

Jennifer digs into how leaders can tell if their organisation is ready for total workforce, some specific steps you can take now and how to select the right total workforce partner. She also explains how you define success in total workforce and how the program will evolve over time.
