Partnered Thought Leadership Event with ADP's Workmarket & Philly SHRM

The future of work is on the horizon. About 50% of companies think automation will reduce full-time workers as early as 2022*. But also by that time, the number of freelance co-workers worldwide will have risen to 5.1M. We are quickly embarking on what many are calling, “The Fourth Industrial Revolution,” or “The Age of Technological Unemployment.”

The meteoric rise of the freelance workforce has forced many companies to rethink one of the most important, and expensive, parts of their business: their people. An estimated 57 million Americans are freelancing in some form or fashion according to a new industry report released last month. As that number continues to grow, HR execs will need to become more proactive about managing that growing legion of talent in their workforce. How will they manage the compliance risk associated with using freelancers at scale? What tools will they use? What can we learn from companies who’ve already started their workforce transformation journey?

These are some of the questions we’ll address during this accredited learning event. The session will start with breakfast networking at 8:30 a.m. and the learning will commence promptly at 9 a.m. EST. The 90 minute session will consist of:

  • The History of On-Demand Labor
  • Why Companies Are Looking to Transform Their Operating Models
  • The On-Demand Labor Market Today
  • Impediments to The Explosion of On-Demand Labor
  • The Future of On-Demand Labor
  • Your Industry and On-Demand Labor
