In a thought-provoking address, Stephen Reilly illustrated that in order to help visualise contingent workers vs permanent recruitment, one should think of the traditional red phone box as a metaphor for permanent recruitment. We all recognise it, know what it is, understand that it’s slightly outdated but still widely accept what they do.
But what if the phone box was blue, like Doctor Who’s Tardis? This was Stephen’s metaphor for contingent labour, with the acronym standing for Talent, Acquisition, Rarely, Discover, Impossible, Scenarios.
