Liquid Workforce is a viable option business may explore. It is a term coined by Accenture in 2016. “A liquid workforce is one in which a firm draws from a variety of resources in order to meet business needs, then adjusts those resources as needs change”, says their blog. It includes regular employees, internal pools, contract workers, and consultants. The mix can be uniquely adapted to meet specific business needs. The “liquidity” does not come from simply blending various combinations of internal and external workforce. It also is derived from recombining internal resources to achieve individual development goals.

This could be due to numerous reasons starting from disability to take consequential action. This is called Reactive Mode. Two, take active control of the events and define the way the future unfolds. This is known as Proactive Mode. At an individual level, one may have complete control over one’s future but when we are talking about a complex level where multiple individuals or factors are involved, such as a company, managing and controlling the events that define the future is a lot more difficult.
