In the increasingly competitive business landscape, there’s unrelenting pressure for companies to be more productive, with fewer employees and resources. Technology has become a key enabler in this shifting model. But it has major implications for what the idea of ‘work’ itself is becoming.

What’s emerging is a new model for the workforce and the workplace known as ‘Talent as a Service’. In the same way that Netflix virtualised the video shop on the corner, Talent as a Service (TaaS) sees the digital dissemination of expertise replacing the old-school model of organisations hiring people full-time (and of physically going to work every day).

Talentdesk24-7 is one of the first TaaS platforms of its kind in South Africa. Our goal is simple – to seamlessly connect highly-qualified professionals with projects that match their skillset on an on-demand basis.

For businesses, this means lower capital investment, less guesswork in allocating contract work and higher productivity. For people with the right expertise, it means flexibility and the opportunity to be your own boss.

Talentdesk24-7 uses technology to disrupt the traditional labour model. Clients and consultants register for free. While clients can submit projects, consultants submit their CVs and references and undergo a rigorous vetting process ensuring only the best candidates are listed.

We then use an algorithm to match expertise to projects – giving clients a shortlist of experts to choose from. After agreeing to the fee and deadlines, the project commences. On completion, the client can rate the consultant based on their performance. This ensures the best results for both parties – and ensures that great work, results in more work for the consultant.

So whether you’re a consultant or business, Talentdesk24-7 is designed to meet your most pressing challenges.
