In-house contractor workforce hiring: Strategies, tech, and insights for success

23 May 2024, London

8.30AM – 12PM

As organisations strive to optimise their talent acquisition strategies amidst evolving global trends, the use of contingent workers is gaining momentum within the workforce. While PSLs have historically been a staple for accessing temporary talent, there is a noticeable shift among TA teams towards internalising this process, reflecting a dynamic change in market strategies and talent management approaches.

In this intimate speaker and networking breakfast event for 30 in-house recruitment professionals, we’ll discuss methods for talent teams to efficiently tap into the contract talent pool and develop a top-tier contractor management model. Focusing on attracting and retaining essential skills while also effectively managing risk and cost.

What’s being discussed
  • Understanding which sourcing options are best for you: temp vs perm, MSP, direct sourcing or agency use
  • Global market trends and contingent labour’s upward trajectory
  • Understanding the compliance risks and how to manage them
  • How to get global hiring right. Do’s and don’ts case study by Innmarsat
  • …and much more!
