The Contingent Workforce: How to Strategically Integrate Temps and Contractors to Fulfill Your Full-Time Needs
|Date / Time:
Employers are facing tough decisions when it comes to full-time, part-time, and contingent employees and their bottom line.
Some organizations feel that it may make economic and business sense to drop full-time employees to part-time status to avoid the financial burden of providing health-care coverage under the Affordable Care Act while other organizations continue to consider the possibility of employing a contingent workforce, comprised of temporary workers or contractors, to perform necessary functions. After all, payroll taxes, benefit costs, and other employee-centric issues may be diminished by relying on these employees.
But how can you continue to flourish and grow when the performance of many necessary business functions rests in the hands of those who don't have firm ties to the organization and its underlying mission and strategic goals?
In this day and age, you must take a strategic approach to make sure you're using contingent workers in a way that's fully integrated with your overall business strategy so you can keep your organization moving forward.
Participate in this interactive webinar, and you'll learn:
- The benefits of using a contingent workforce
- How to effectively evaluate your organization's staffing needs so you can identify the core positions that should remain in-house and those that may benefit from a more flexible arrangement
- Key questions to ask when deciding which positions can be outsourced or done on a reduced schedule
- Questions to ask to see if having a contingent workforce to support your full-time needs makes good business sense
- How to effectively ramp up contingent workers so they integrate seamlessly with your full-timers, including suggestions on the types of collaborative tools, such as wikis and other technology, that can be used for maintaining open communication and superb workflow
- Communication strategies for discussing the onboarding of contingent workers with your full-timers, so they don't feel they're in danger of being replaced
- Best practices for training and engaging contingent workers
- Tips for negotiating contracts with professional employer organizations (PEOs)
- Traps to avoid when hiring and managing contingent workers, including the legal liabilities you could face if you misclassify employees as contractors
- Succession planning strategies to use when contingent workers' projects are winding down, and how to evaluate those employees as potential candidates to fill in-house needs
- And more!!
In just 90 minutes, you'll learn how to effectively use contingent workers within your organization. Register now for this informative event risk free.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
