Five Reasons You Won’t Want to Miss Next Week’s Webinar

Large, enterprise-sized organizations: step aside for just a moment. This one is for the mid-size indirect spend companies. Hey, SMBs (Small and Mid-size Businesses): I know that one of the challenges you face every day is related to a single concept: talent. There’s no need to be ashamed; talent is the top differentiator for today’s organizations, helping to spark new product development, innovation, and ultimately, corporate growth. This was the case ten years ago, five years ago, and, yes, even today. However, there’s one wrinkle with talent today that complicates things even more for you: the rise of the Gig Economy.

The Gig Economy is a catalyst that has augmented the already-fast-paced growth of the non-employee workforce, with more and more talented professionals eschewing traditional work environments for a flexible lifestyle. Combined with the stark rise in utilization of technology, and the overarching need for you, the SMB, to have a more direct relationship with its talent, and, boom: talent engagement comes even more intricate.

I’m excited to join DCR Workforce next week for an exclusive webinar that will not only help you understand the current layout of the talent industry today, but also the forward-thinking approaches and strategies that technology platforms ( VMS’s) will take your contingent workforce management (CWM) programs into a new era. Here are five reasons you won’t want to miss the event next week:

  1. I’ll be sharing exclusive insights from my years of research that are specific to SMB organizations and how the time is now to utilize the options available to scale and grow.
  2. We’ll talk about how technology and VMS service offerings are available for SMBs and should be on your radar in the months and years ahead
