ADP Hosted Webinar: Unlocking the Power of the Gig Economy

About this Webinar

The growth of the gig economy, and recent fundamental changes to working culture due to COVID-19, has changed the conversation within organizations and is shining a new light on human resource practices. Gig workers have long been used by businesses in roles requiring flexibility and at the mercy of project demand/supply, but typically fall outside the companies’ HR strategy — driving performance and impacting the budget, yet not managed or tracked in a consistent fashion. Simultaneously, the broad acceptance of gig work is changing how all kinds of workers look at the world of work.

In this on-demand webinar, we’ll review trends, best practices, and considerations as you look to staff for the changing world of work.

By the end of this webinar you will have:

  • Learned how tapping into this extended workforce can improve scale and agility
  • Reviewed the challenges related to tracking the lifecycle of this extended workforce
  • Understood the factors causing companies to reevaluate their workforce
  • Seen the ADP solutions to help you manage your gig workforce

Let’s get you ready for the future of work!
