Changing How the World Works: The Strategic Free Agent in the New Economy

After years of economic uncertainty, corporate downsizing and long term unemployment, many workers now identify themselves as “free agents” or professional contingent workers. Their previous experience and skill sets uniquely position them to support an organization’s workforce plan through the ebbs and flows of sales cycles, economic conditions and product launches.

This leads us to today’s blended workforce – a combination of free agents including consultants, contractors, and contingent workers (Bersin & Associates refers to this as “insourcing”) and  those employees hired directly by the company.

In this webinar, Dr. Katherine Jones, Director of Human Capital FOR Bersin talks about how and why organizations:

  • Implement blended workforce strategies
  • Source and engage “free agent” talent
  • Identify the main challenges in managing the various types of contingent workers
  • Leverage free agent talent to fill critical talent gaps
