About the book

Using freelance consultants can be a highly effective way to harness the finest skills and experience in the labour market without committing yourself to meeting the expectations and employment rights of permanent, full-time employees. Talent on Tap draws upon case studies from organizations that have been employing consultants over many years and views from freelance consultants themselves to tell you all you need to know about taking advantage of this skilled, flexible and highly focused talent pool.

Talent on Tap helps you effectively manage freelancers by answering questions such as: How do you select, motivate and reward freelance consultants? How do you measure and manage their performance? How do you integrate consultants into a potentially resentful permanent workforce? How do you build productive, long-term relationships with the best freelance consultants when their skills are in such high demand?
