Flex market

The word "Flex" is a collective term for services that have to do with the provision of flexible labour and bringing together supply and demand on the labour market. In a continuously changing market, the use of data makes it possible to better understand and coordinate the interaction between this supply and demand side. The Flexmarket serves a social purpose in utilising employment. Moreover, in many cases the sector takes over the administrative burdens and financial risks of the rest of the business community. Consider, for example, the takeover of the back office or remuneration and the pre-financing of personnel. Data-driven work is necessary to be able to do this at the lowest possible risk and at a competitive rate.

To work more efficiently

Data from all kinds of sources flows through ERP systems that are interconnected. From the registration of the candidate to the invoicing of the employer or client. Automating processes and administrative tasks can relieve you of a huge burden. You want to spend as little time as possible on manual work and recurring tasks.

Data-driven work

Almost all elements that determine supply and demand in the labour market can nowadays be described in terms of data. Partly thanks to the gig economy, this is done with ever greater accuracy. Graydon helps its customers by generating insights based on Big Data. This allows them to make the right decisions in the field of Acceptance & Debtor Management, but also in the field of Sales & Marketing. Risks to one person may be opportunities to others. Consider the impact of a pandemic such as COVID-19 or other disruptive market developments and trends.

Graydon has long been involved in collecting as much relevant data about individual organisations as possible. This also makes the Graydon database the ultimate source of insights about sectors and the market as a whole. Job profiles, competence profiles, but also the company profiles of the organisations that create work, are getting more extensive every day. The trail of data that these employees and employers leave behind over time forms today's labour market data.
