What is HR's Role in the New Independent Workforce?

The "alternative" workforce is no longer alternative. A recent NPR/Marist poll showed that one in five American jobs is held by a contract worker and predicts that within a decade, freelancers and contract workers could comprise half of the American workforce. This research-based presentation will preview findings from the soon-to-be-published research report conducted by Josh Bersin in partnership with HRPS that examines the independent workforce and how it is currently managed.


Bersin will explain the impact of the increasing numbers – and types – of independent workers on today's organizations. He'll examine the social and economic drivers behind the trend and the associated benefits and challenges for business and workers themselves. Most importantly, he'll delve into the role of HR and the human capital practices that need to be considered in order to best capitalize on these talent assets.  

Josh Bersin is an analyst, author, educator, and thought leader focusing on the global talent market and the challenges and trends impacting business workforces around the world. The founder of Bersin™ by Deloitte, he studies the world of work, HR and leadership practices, and the broad talent technology market. Josh is the principal research partner for HRPS.
