Traditionally, there are three approaches to equipping your organisation with the necessary skills. Aon’s ‘Future-Proofing Your Talent’ report explains that these are:
- Build: You can build your own talent through recruitment and development. It isn’t always easy to hire specialist digital talent. Investing in your existing workforce is therefore something that every organisation can and should be doing.
- Borrow: Creating partnerships — for example, with universities and other organisations — can provide short-term access to talent and expertise.
- Buy: You can purchase consultancy expertise either at an individual or organisational level. Or you could subcontract assignments to a third-party organisation.
