Ensure business continuity with workforce agility

Your workforce is your most valuable—and costly—asset. Gloat’s Workforce Agility solution supports business continuity, helping you unlock workforce capacity by redeploying talent according to your most pressing business needs, in turn lowering hiring costs and reducing layoffs.
Want to ensure business continuity while protecting your talent?

Retain critical skills

Critical skill gaps and understaffed teams have a significant impact on business productivity. And top skills often come at a premium cost because of their high market demand. Gloat helps you build these critical skillsets within your workforce by tapping into employees with relevant skills or interests, connecting them with learning tools and opportunities, up-leveling on-the-job experience, and suggesting strategic mentorship matches.

Unlock workforce capacity through internal mobility

Need extra hands to get your project across the finish line? One in three Fortune 500 companies rely on external gig marketplaces—and end up paying a premium for contingent labor. Gloat helps you create an internal gig economy and lower your dependence on third-party labor. The Workforce Agility Platform enables talent to seamlessly move from areas of low demand to high demand, and leaders to unlock capacity where it’s most needed—all while creating engaging growth opportunities for your workforce.

Reduce hiring costs

Recruiting, screening, interviewing, onboarding—the early stages of the employee lifecycle are costly, and often unnecessary: without a workforce agility tool, businesses tend to overlook internal candidates with the expertise needed to step into new roles. What’s more, internal hires have the institutional knowledge to onboard faster, reducing the resources and time needed for training and onboarding. Gloat’s platform identifies employees with the skills you’re looking for, so you can sidestep hiring costs and lengthy ramp-up periods, and get straight to executing on your most pressing priorities.

Make your organization worth staying for

A lack of opportunities and limited visibility into options for professional progression make every employee a flight risk. To retain your workforce, give them something to stay for—namely, the chance to build skills and grow their careers. Gloat empowers your talent to gain experience and build skills in all areas of the business so that they stay inspired and engaged while driving results for your organization…and lowering workforce attrition.

Cut costs, not people

Layoffs come with high price tags. Beyond severance and potential backfilling costs down the line, losing employees represents a value loss of the training and organizational knowledge invested into those employees. Further, layoffs have a sinking effect on employee morale and employer branding, and often result in additional turnover spikes. Instead of eliminating headcount to reduce redundancies, leverage an internal gig economy to facilitate redeployment at speed and scale, and connect every employee to the most critical business needs, enabling them to take their unique skills, experiences and careers in new directions. With Gloat, your business and your people can grow together.

How customers reduce costs with workforce agility

Seagate used Gloat to avoid layoffs during COVID-19 and redeployed an average of two people per day, saving $1.4M in just 4 months after launch.

“At one point, we were doing up to two redeployments per day or running redeployments and then filling projects. We’ve gotten tremendous positive feedback from employees on the projects they’ve worked on.”

Patricia Frost, Chief Human Resources Officer at Seagate, Seagate

“Our use of talent Marketplace has translated to over $15,000,000 in savings across the business in unlocked hours and reduced recruiting expense.”

Andrew Saidy, former VP Digital Transformation at Schneider Electric

“We typically think of efficiency as cutting headcount, but with the talent marketplace, you can utilize idle hours and skills that you already have in your talent pool.”
