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.
