"Gig Economy"

Networking: 7:45 - 8:05 AM
Join us early for an opportunity to meet new people!

Program Description:
“Gig” workers – who are they, how are they different and how do you deal with them?  

A recent letter issued by the DOL positions the gig economy workers as independent contractors  … so what does that mean?  In this session we will explore the current landscape of the “gig economy”, define what it is and talk about what companies are doing to be able to take advantage of this talent pool.

Attendees can expect a robust discussion that will include learnings that can be applied to their organizations.
Topics include –
  • Definitions and clarity around this workforce
  • What business dynamics are driving this change
  • Benefits and Risks of this leveraging this workforce
  • Organizational factors to consider
  • Take away tips
