Details & Time Frame
Manage your Contingent Workforce Faster, Better and Cheaper Through Social Media
Contingent workers are rapidly becoming a critical component of any workforce population. Since the beginning of 2012, temporary and contract employment has grown 24.2%! This explosive growth in the number of contingent workers is largely due to the rapid adoption of social media as well as economic downturns.

Today's contract workers turn to social media to find assignments, assess potential employers, access needed knowledge, improve skills, collaborate on tasks, and evaluate work experiences.

Many companies have also turned to social media, incorporating social networking sites such as Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook into their recruitment strategies. Each has created a recruitment section to their site, and volumes have been written on how to search for candidates on each social networking site. However, this is only the tip of the iceberg.

This webinar explores and explains the impact that each type of social media will continue to have on all aspects of contingent talent procurement and workforce management. Topics include:
• Tapping into social media to increase your labor market intelligence
• Selecting the right type of temporary worker or team for each assignment
• Matching the best sourcing methods to each type of temporary worker
• Going beyond social networking - Incorporating talent exchanges and crowdsourcing into your talent procurement strategies
• Avoiding classification and regulatory compliance risks when sourcing candidates online
• Nuances of onboarding and off-boarding a candidate sourced through social media
• Using ‘unified communications’ technologies to drive collaboration and productivity across all stakeholders
• Transitioning your vendor management system into a social enterprise talent management platform
• Practical plans for getting started
