Though “the gig economy” has been in the public consciousness for several years, it has operated mostly in parallel with the HR function: “gigs” found though tech platforms and apps have borne similarities to contract and temp positions but have mostly existed as an alternative to traditional jobs. But with thousands of new entrants into this space and data pointing toward the continued growth of this segment, it’s time to start considering how on-demand talent could impact and elevate YOUR company’s hiring.

To help you better understand and leverage the gig economy, Nelson will be joined by Sean Ring, co-founder of Fulcrum on May 30th at 10 am PDT. In this very special NELSONtalks webinar, Sean will discuss: 

  • The origins of freelance and gig work and what’s changed to make this an important new resource for HR
  • How the gig economy and staffing complement one another – and how to use that synergy to your advantage
  • The differences between B2B and B2C platforms and how to find the talent you’re looking for 
  • Key considerations for large companies when seeking to pilot or launch on-demand talent programs
  • And more!

Sean will also take your questions live at the end of the webinar.

Since California’s housing prices hit an all-time high in June of 2018, the market has been creeping toward a decline. However, nearly half of the 100 most expensive zip codes in the U.S. are still located in the Golden State.

The 2019 Nelson Workplace Trends Report revealed data suggesting that housing is and will continue to be a problem for employers, because the hefty prices lead to longer commutes and the need for higher salaries – as well as contribute to lost candidates and outmigration from the state.

While no one can predict exactly how the housing market will affect employers in the coming years, we can prepare for the worst- and best-case scenarios. In this on-demand NELSONtalks webinar with Dr. Robert Eyler, Dean of the School of Extended and International Education, Professor of Economics, and Director of the Center for Regional Economic Analysis at Sonoma State University, we discuss:

  • What current data suggests about housing’s impact on employers
  • The effect of “outmigration” of lower-wage workers on the future of employment in California
  • Ways employers can prepare for different economic scenarios in 2020 and beyond
