11/8/12 Webcast: It’s 2012: Why Your Company Can’t Afford to Get Independent Contractor Engagement Wrong
(Please note that this webcast has been rescheduled from 10/30/12 due to Hurricane Sandy.)
Independent consultants, contractors, and freelancers represent a growing segment of the workforce that allows organizations access to talent that they might not be able to find or afford with traditional permanent working arrangements. No one wants to lose access to this talent pool, but a thoughtful approach is critical to ensure that talent is not misclassified or poorly treated. Talent is talent and no matter how they are paid or how they are engaged, every effort must be made to keep the best talent available to HR's internal customers.
As a procurement or HR professional in government, you may be interested in an online small group seminar we are conducting later this month.
On Wednesday, January 25th at 1pm EST,we are hosting a free webinar for a small group of government procurement and HR professionals about engaging independent contractors. There are hundreds of thousands of independent contractors providing highly skilled services to the federal, state and local government in the US, yet the costs of engaging these vital workers is almost always higher than it should be.

If you've been watching the most recent economic data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, then you know we are now entering the era of the independent consultant. Over 68% of the hiring and jobs creation that has happened over the last year has been contract-based, not so-called "permanent" jobs. And the fastest growing segment of that contract-based workforce is composed of independent contractors.
