Do you want to grow your business?
There’s a dynamic and cost-effective new way to get the talent you need in today’s On-Demand Economy, where buyers and sellers of talent increasingly meet online using talent marketplaces.
This Jam Session will benefit:
- Entrepreneurs, solopreneurs and small and mid-sized businesses who are hiring talent
- Individuals who deliver services as freelance or ‘gig’ workers
There are three big benefits to hiring quality freelance talent: skills, availability and flexibility. Using freelancers enables you to:
- Add skills and experience with no added overhead
- Expand your team’s bandwidth, on demand
- Outsource non-core work, so you can focus on what you do best
- Optimize use of finite capital
- Try new ideas before making big commitments
Flexible talent helps you compete bigger and grow
The #1 hiring problem for a small business is finding qualified talent. It hobbles businesses yet the talent market is chock full of skilled workers who seek flexible work arrangements (‘gigs’) instead of traditional 9-5 W2 employment. It’s estimated there are nearly 57 million freelance workers in the US and 50.9% of the US workforce will be freelancing by 2027. Big business is already tapping into this rich, flexible talent market in a big way – you and your business can too. Learn how in this Jam Session.
