[Webinar]: Total Talent Management is the Key to the Future of Work

Join Dan Beck in a live discussion with Madeline Laurano of Aptitude Research on Tuesday, June 8, 2021 at 10am PT | 1pm ET:

Over 80% of companies are leveraging contingent workers today, and one in three plan to increase their investment in 2021. This increased reliance on extended workers (i.e., contractors, gig workers, freelancers, independent consultants, project-based workers) brings new challenges for the enterprise.

It’s no surprise that companies are thinking critically about how they: Source and retain their talent; who in the organization owns the enterprise-wide talent strategy; what technology is needed to best support this shift; and what components of visibility (i.e., skills, spend, headcount) are required to successfully achieve their business objectives. 

In this 60-minute webinar, Madeline Laurano, Founder at Aptitude Research, will share her findings on:

  • Shifting ownership over contingent workforce programs
  • Why traditional vendor management systems are not the best solution for strategic, future-centric contingent workforce programs
  • Visibility roadblocks to achieve total talent management
