“The Open Talent platforms strategy helped us fill internal talent gaps rapidly and at a significantly lower TCO, reducing lead time from months to just days or sometimes even simply a few hours. Onboarding time was also greatly reduced thanks to the protocols and processes that UST has pioneered. I’m proud of this innovative solution and I am glad that we were able to help our internal stakeholders implement key employee-facing initiatives, which otherwise would have not been implemented,” said Justin George, Head of Talent Systems, UST.
“UST’s Open Talent strategy allows UST and our clients to gain a significant talent advantage by leveraging the freelancer talent ecosystem. While concerns over data security, privacy, intellectual property and confidentiality made it difficult for enterprises to leverage Open Talent at scale, UST’s unique approach solves these issues. Applying the playbook internally enabled us to unlock tremendous opportunities to accelerate our internal digital transformation,” said Vinod Kartha, VP Strategic Initiatives, UST.
UST will continue to advance groundbreaking digital transformation solutions that simplify operations for clients and internal stakeholders alike.
