Independent consultants, contractors, and freelancers represent a growing segment of the workforce that allows organizations access to talent that they might not be able to find or afford with traditional permanent working arrangements. No one wants to lose access to this talent pool, but a thoughtful approach is critical to ensure that talent is not misclassified or poorly treated. Talent is talent and no matter how they are paid or how they are engaged, every effort must be made to keep the best talent available to HR's internal customers.
In a recent webcast a panel of experts debated whether HR, Procurement, or Legal departments should lead their organizations' efforts in the engagement of Independent Consultants, contractors and freelancers. In this follow-up webcast, a panel of HR and Talent Acquisition executives will discuss how they have taken the lead in their organization, to engage Consulting Talent as part of an integrated human capital strategy.
