Event Description:
What is the Gig Economy and why might a contingent workforce be the missing link in your business?
There is an ongoing war for talent, and a compelling portion of the workforce is continuing to turn to contingent workforce to round out their employment needs. This presentation will discuss the loosely defined types of contingent/alternate employment options for businesses such as: temporary employees, leased (co-employed) employees, administrative outsourcing, and facilities management programs. The presenters will show you how changing your conventional thinking about employees and employment can free up your time as owners and managers to focus on revenue generating activities, help you attract and retain better employees, save time and money, and set your company apart from your competitors.
