Your WORKFORCE OF THE FUTURE REQUIRES AN EVOLUTION OF HOW YOU ENGAGE, MOTIVATE, AND MANAGE TALENT
There’s a lot to do to successfully integrate open talent models into how your organization operates. The use of open talent models like crowdsourcing and freelancing is increasingly required by companies and talent alike, but they’re often introduced piecemeal and forced to adhere to processes and policies adopted for a different era. Unfortunately, this often results in confusion, sub-optimal outcomes, and a retreat back to traditional talent models.
Balancing supply and demand within a marketplace, rethinking incentive models and motivations, updating internal processes… we’ve been focused on these topics for nearly two decades and our customers rely on this experience to guide them through the process.
Our Workforce Transformation offering consists of two professional services phases that we’ve found are critical to the successful adoption of crowd and freelancing programs.
01. STRATEGY & EDUCATION
While your leadership is excited by the changes ahead, department heads, project managers and individual employees may have different perspectives and concerns that need to be addressed before fully launching such programs.
This initial phase will ensure that all stakeholders are knowledgeable, engaged, and motivated to use open talent models. We will run a series of educational and tactical workshops that will set a strong foundation for your program’s success across the organization.
02. CROWDSOURCING PROGRAM BUILD
Enabling crowdsourcing and freelancing at scale requires taking a step back and reevaluating many of the policies established for a workforce made up primarily of onsite, full-time employees.
Our Crowdsourcing Program Build phase will allow you to move beyond exploration by defining and setting up the right operating models, processes and infrastructure to enable an open talent workforce.

How hybrid crowd works
The platform is flexible and extensible – allowing you to integrate crowdsourcing into the way you work at any stage of a project
smart community segmentation
Public and private community members are segmented based on your specific criteria, such as areas of expertise, certifications, and security credentials. This process ensures that every project is distributed to the broadest range of talent meeting the requirements, and over time this produces your certified crowd.
secure online tools
Work can be submitted to Topcoder from anyone in your enterprise authorized to initiate a crowdsourcing project. Online tools make it easy to capture project specifications and determine which crowd meets the requirements, and enterprise users can easily monitor project progress and receive deliverables.
expert crowd management
Every work project is assigned a Copilot—a trained technical resource who creates a game plan for the project and manages all crowdsourcing logistics. The Copilot keeps your users abreast of milestones and next steps, and you have an opportunity to review and sign off on all deliverables.
central work provisioning
An optional custom microsite provides a centralized hub for your program, and each crowdsourcing challenge is made available only to those who meet all requirements. Public and private community members can login to the microsite to view—and compete on—the challenges to which they have access.
