New CEO welcomed.
The other message Nvoi was sending was with the release of its flagship workforce platform, the future of contingent work was here.
Chairman, Andrew Dutton, said with the transition from a product build focus pre-launch to a sales and marketing focus post-launch, it was crucial to let individuals and companies know that capitalising on present opportunities now could yield significant advantages for them in the near future.
“The board has spent considerable time identifying and evaluating executives suitable to take Nvoi through its next stage of growth, and we are very pleased to have secured Jennifer as our CEO for this exciting period of the company’s evolution,” Dutton said.
Previously Vice President of IBM’s Global Complex Sales Business, Maritz has over 25 years’ experience in business and IT leadership and welcomed the opportunity at Nvoi.
“It is a great privilege to take on the role of CEO as Nvoi commences a major disruption of the age-old contingent personnel search and recruitment practices with its newly-released technology platform last month,” Maritz said.
The Nvoi staffing platform focused on meeting the needs of the global contingent workforce, facilitating a marketplace where businesses and professionals can directly interact to fill on-site work assignments.
In addition, Nvoi fulfils the role of employer-of-record, managing the billing, payroll and workplace compliance, and on-hiring these professional to businesses at scale — making it smooth and simple for all parties.
Following the company’s successful relisting on the ASX, the focus is now on growing business from the high-volume Sydney and Melbourne markets, targeting enterprises and SMEs using both digital and direct sales campaign.
A selection of organisations have already been trialling the platform as part of the ‘early adopter program’ internally, with the results so far overwhelmingly positive.
“By 2020, the process of hiring and managing a contingent workforce will be an autonomous process using staffing platforms, serving similar functions to those experiencing rapid adoption for personal transportation, accommodation search and hire, and other cloud-based product purchases,” Dutton said.
“A successful contingent workforce strategy requires agility rather than corporate scale to achieve a strong market position; the Nvoi platform provides access to wider and deeper connections with the skills economy to access the best skills when and where they are needed.”
Nvoi now believes it is positioned to capitalise on the growing market for contingent on-site talent to complete strategic work assignments, which is already worth US$3.2 trillion a year.
