069: How Should Your Temporary Labor Strategy Evolve to Capitalize on the Future of Work? w/ Terri Gallagher

The makeup of the workforce is changing rapidly, with a shift to contingent and on-demand workers.  At the same time, the service industry and enabling technology that underpins the flow of contingent workers is undergoing a revolution.  So how can we make sense of all these moving parts, and enable our organizations take advantage of this new normal?

This is the topic of today’s show, with contingent workforce expert Terri Gallagher.  This is the third in a three part series that Terri and I have recorded on contingent labor and procurement, and definitely the most thought provoking!
