    Event Description:

    Talent. You have it.  You need it.  Or both.
     
    The challenge of finding a good match between available work and talent in this competitive economy is growing tougher every day.  There’s an option you may not have fully explored yet but you know it’s there: the independent contractor, the freelancer, the gig worker, the 1099.   Well the gig economy is here.  And it is only getting bigger. 
     
    By 2020 it is estimated that 25% of businesses will have a contingent workforce comprising at least 30% of its talent resources, with one in five workers across the globe actively engaged in gig or freelance work.  Global Contingent Workforce Study, EY 
     
    Do you want to maximize the value of your skills via 1099?  Or does your small business need talent but not the capacity for a full-time permanent employee?  Come find out the Why, What & How of independent contracting and freelancing.  Don’t miss the UberXL of talent.  Get in on the gig while the goods are hot.
