Details & Time Frame
The Growth of the Contingent Workforce: How Companies Can Benefit From Utilizing Contingent Labor
Research indicates that one third of the U.S. workforce is now comprised of contingent workers, who are sometimes referred to as freelancers, contractors or temps. The trend looks set to continue going forward, with 36% of businesses looking to engage temporary help in 2012 alone.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics show the temporary services industry added almost ½ million workers and accounted for 91% of total job growth from June 2009 – 2011. However, our research suggests that the growth of the flexible workforce isn’t merely due to economic changes; it is also a reflection of wider changes in the modern workplace.

Our virtual conference - led by Emergent President, Bill Inman - will explain the reasons for the growth of the contingent workforce and the advantages of implementing a Contingent Workforce Strategy to achieve your company’s goals. We'll also alert you to the risks your company needs to watch out for when employing contingent workers AND how to mitigate those risks.

As the use of contingent labor continues to grow, understanding how to maximize your company’s Contingent Workforce Strategy will be essential for the modern HR professional.

If your company currently utilizes contingent workers or plans to increase its usage of this type of worker in the near future, you should attend this conference.

Emergent is part of a family of companies that is one of the largest employers of contingent labor in the US, employing hundreds of thousands of workers each year for companies nationwide, including many Fortune 100 clients. Our team of legal, payroll, HR, risk management and operations professionals are some of the most experienced in the contingent workforce industry today.
