One of the key components of a staffing plan and related talent management programs is to decide whether to build or buy talent. Building talent involves a commitment to train and develop employees to fill positions, such that the employees have the right skills at the time they are needed.
Buying talent refers to the use of independent contractors, vendors, and/or contingent employees to fill the talent demand.
