Flexible working is on the increase across all sectors. More and more we're seeing organisations choose to engage with a contingent workforce, whether that's in the form of contractors, whether that's in the form of self-employed workers or even agency workers in some cases. Automation, A.I. and technology is really accelerating the pace of change by offering a more open and innovative way in which organisations and workers can come together and work flexibly.

Organisations are also now choosing to embrace the use of flexible workers to cope with the current changes in the nature of demand for talent and skills as they respond to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and its impact on their business. While this approach brings with it multiple benefits, it also presents a number of practical challenges.

Key features

Manage the contracting process for specific engagements quickly and easily.

Improve budgeting

Make life easy for workers

How does it work

Embracing a flexible workforce allows organisations to be agile and respond quickly to fluctuations in demand for talent and skills, and adapt to new ways of working.

The hub is a unique tool which enables organisations to engage with flexible workers in real time, from any location on any internet enabled device while centrally handling compliance needs.

Organisations can benefit from:

  • A streamlined process for onboarding and managing flexible workers, ‘virtually’, for fixed periods of time
  • Deploying your workforce across regional clusters and departments
  • Releasing vacancies to multiple third parties to help find the right skill set and access a broad base of flexible workers
  • Monitoring and tracking engagements, removing overspend and supporting budgeting

Client testimonial: NHS

Flexible Workforce Hub currently supports a number of NHS Trusts to find suitably qualified healthcare professionals. It keeps Trusts on top of changing regulations and crucially gives staff peace of mind, with easy-to-submit timesheets meaning quick payment. It is a shining example of how flexibility can work for both employer and employee when it is structured and managed in the right way.

“The PwC model does exactly what we were told that it would. The platform itself is very competitive. However, the stand out aspect of our contract with PwC is the excellence and professionalism of the team supporting and delivering the service. There isn’t one thing that we have requested that the team haven’t either delivered or tried to deliver. I have complete confidence that the team will always deliver the very highest levels of service that they can”
