Our Hiring Process – What do ‘Community-Approach’ and ‘Invite-to-Apply’ mean?

‘Invite-to-Apply’ is the process by which we shortlist candidates for the majority of projects on our platform. Often, due to the confidential nature of our clients’ projects, we do not release projects to our whole platform but using the matching technology and expertise of our internal team we select candidates who are the best fit for our clients’ needs. This approach also ensures engagement with our community of professionals on the Fintalent platform, and is a benefit both to our clients and independent professionals, as our freelancers have direct access to the roles best suited to their skills and are more likely to take an interest in a project if they have been sought out directly. In addition, if a member of our community is unavailable for a project but knows someone whose skill set perfectly fits the brief, they are able to invite them to apply for the role, utilizing the personal networks of each talent on our platform.

Everything you need to know about Transition Management

What is Transition Management?

Transition management in finance is the process of transitioning assets, liabilities, and operations to a new entity. “There are many different reasons that an organization may want to undergo a transition, such as mergers and acquisitions.”

Background Information

The purpose of a business is to generate value by producing a product or service and/or creating a profit. In order for a company to continue providing value, it must continue to create products and/or services. As a result, once a business finishes selling its current products or services, it must find another way to continue generating value. It’s all well and good to know what you want your company’s new direction to be, but what about the old direction? Once you’ve determined your new direction it’s time to figure out how you’re going to make that happen…and how you’re going to manage the process of getting there. That’s where transition management comes into play. Transitions are all changes that occur when you go from one state to another. The most common example of a transition is a change in direction, such as how an aircraft transitions from the earth’s atmosphere into outer space.

In the event of a change in ownership from one entity to another, especially when the new owner is not the original owner, there must be a process for transitioning assets and/or operations. There are many different reasons that an organization may want to undergo a transition, such as mergers and acquisitions.

Uses and Benefits of transition Management

There are many benefits that can come from transition management in finance. The first benefit that can be attained is that of cost savings. If you are not careful, you may make mistakes when transitioning assets, liabilities, and operations. Mistakes can lead to additional costs to complete the transition. Therefore, what’s often overlooked is the fact that mistakes are avoidable through the effective use of transition management in finance.

Because mistakes are avoidable with proper planning and preparation, there will be a lessened amount of time required in the event of a transition. The fewer steps in a process take, the fewer opportunities there will be for errors to occur. One way that this is true is through transitions from one entity to another by going from one state into another. If you’re going from one state into another, there are several steps that need to be taken. For example, if a company wants to go from a for-profit entity to a non-profit entity there are many different entities that will need to be created along the way. The fewer steps a process requires, the less chance there will be for mistakes.

Another way that mistakes can occur is during transitions of assets and/or operations. If a process isn’t followed correctly, then it’s quite possible that missteps will occur. In order to avoid these mishaps an effective transition management process must be put into use. If a process for transitioning assets and operations is used, then a business can ensure that it won’t make any mistakes.

Insights on Appropriate Transition Management

In order to get the most from your transition management in finance you must know what needs to be done. For instance, if you’re going from one state into another there are several entities that will be necessary. In order to get the best advice on how to successfully transition from one state into another the best advise is to consult a professional the likes of which are abundant in Fintalent. The more knowledge that you have on the subject the better prepared you’ll be for success. Gaining all of this knowledge can seem quite daunting but with time and education, knowledge is very achievable.

Another thing to remember is the importance of transition management. If you do not engage the services of a Transition Management Consultant for transitioning your company, there is a good chance that you will make mistakes. These mistakes can cost your business time and money. If this happens, you could possibly miss out on opportunities to be successful and profitable. Either way, it’s crucial for you to know how best to handle transitions in order to maximize the potential benefits and avoid potentially devastating consequences. With the abundance of freelance consultants available for hire in Fintalent, there’s no excuse for not knowing how.
