The spread of cloud technologies has caused profound structural changes in the labor market. As a result, the institutional transformation of market relations began, which continues to this day. The traditional labor market is gradually giving way to a networked labor market based on horizontal integration, decentralization and delegation of authority. This generates new forms and types of labor relations, changes the trends and patterns of their development. The driving force behind institutional changes is the reduction of costs and the spread of new methods of organizing labor. Instead of two main participants of labor contracts – the employer and the employee, three participants – the customer, the executor and the intermediary – operate on the network labor market. Of particular importance in these conditions are the methodological issues of the marketing concept of the network labor market, based on the analysis of the institutional behavior of its participants. The article proposes a classification of the structure and infrastructure of the network labor market, defines the methodological grounds for assessing and forecasting further institutional changes.

The article defines the factors of the choice of the competitive strategy of the Kemerovo regional trading network «Behemoth». A comparative analysis of the company’s direct competitors showed that the content of trade-mix elements of competing enterprises, such as the form of service, location, assortment, the presence of its own brand, is practically the same. The analysis of competitive strategies led to the conclusion that the achievement of competitive advantage is provided by the companies under analysis as a result of the implementation of such a basic strategy as the strategy of cost leadership (aggressive achievement of least costs).
The conducted researches have revealed a high threat for the Kemerovo trade enterprises from the side of new market participants, therefore, to survive in the market it is necessary to increase the entrance market barriers. The main entrance barriers are customer loyalty to already existing trading companies, long-term relationships with suppliers, innovations in the field of offered goods and services.
Investigations of trading enterprises in Kemerovo showed that the competitive strategies of almost all stores in the networks are built on the minimization of prices, which means that it is impossible to compete of price. Therefore, the «Behemoth» system of supermarkets should fulfill the needs of customers in its area, present its buyer with a unique offer that will allow the trading company to retain, and subsequently increase the market share.
