The ‘Uber formula” for telecoms engineers fills much-needed gap.

It’s well-known that Uber’s online platform matching drivers and riders has created a billion-dollar industry.

But that industry now extends to about one-third of all US workers, according to Census Department statistics, and to vast numbers of workers all across the globe. It is at work in companies of every size, and in every sector, including telecommunications.

The changes in technology in the telecommunications industry are happening fast, and companies need more specially skilled engineers to keep up with burgeoning demand. These companies are finding they can access a specialized, professional, independent workforce using talent-access platforms like the one at Uber – only with telecoms engineers on the other end.

It used to be that HR departments posted a job ad, selected a short list, ran interviews with managers and then helped to bring the new hire on board.

Today, there’s just not enough time for this intensive process. And, there’s another issue: Change is so rapid at companies that the skilled hire of today may quickly become redundant tomorrow. Projects develop too quickly to tailor the workforce for them.

This is why telecommunications companies are beginning to rely on talent-access platforms for more efficient hiring and more careful spending. Working with on-demand engineers means flexibility – the talent needed is available for the project underway, and new talent can be found easily for the next project. Access to talent on a flexible basis ensures the agility and competitiveness that today’s telecom industry requires.

For independent telecommunications engineers,choosing this path offers advantages as well. They can take advantage of flexible working, with the freedom to choose projects they wish to work on. Telecom leaders can bring on professional workers with track records of success and specific knowledge in areas such as small cell infrastructure, near-field communication or 5G, and once the project is complete, free them up to work on other projects until their skills are needed again. It’s a system that truly benefits everyone.
