Recent research estimates that by 2020, more than 40 percent of the U.S. workforce will consist of contingent workers. With the rise of freelance talent and independent contractors seemingly inevitable, employers need to consider how the addition of these workers might impact their talent management processes and business goals and how to get maximum benefit from this labor pool.

During HR West 2016, Stephen DeWitt, CEO of Work Market, will discuss how the on-demand labor movement is transforming the way companies source and manage contingent workers. DeWitt will explain how this talent management shift is reaching as far as the boardroom and how strategy can help companies adapt processes to address this new reality and the challenges of the modern world of work.

HR professionals and business leaders interested in examining ways to make the on-demand labor market work for their organizations are encouraged to attend this enlightening session. More information about HR West 2016 is available at:
