The “Gig Economy” is here to stay!!  No matter what you call it, contingent, consulting, freelance, outsourced and many more, it’s growing and a critical part of our economy.  There are many stats, but more than one third (36%) of the US workers are currently working in the gig economy, which is approximately 50+ million people in the workforce today. 

Why is this important to you and your company and what is the impact?

  • Cost savings
  • Expand the talent pool
  • Ability to hire experts
  • Flexibility, project based and seasonal hiring
  • Ability to scale

There are many success factors to this new way of hiring.  Leadership, Clarity and Collaboration are the critical ones to be successful.  This interactive, fun and fast paced presentation will provide you the tools so that you can:

  • Develop a better understanding of the “gig economy”
  • Determine how your company can benefit
  • Define actions that you can take for your company

At the close of the session, you will be ready to take action and you will walk away with tips, techniques and strategies to embrace the “gig economy” to better serve your customers and benefit your company.
