Beyond the Hype: Non-Traditional Working Arrangements and Platforms


Sign In to access this Webcast

Join our panel of expert economists who will first cover the increasingly uncertain environment for emerging market and European economies – and the factors that are allowing the US Economy to buck global headwinds for now.

Then we will highlight how slow working-age population growth has created increased competition for talent, which means greater incentives to use non-traditional work arrangements.

This webcast will uncover:

  • Why have the advent of labor market platforms failed to increase growth in non-traditional work arrangements?
  • In what jobs are businesses making the most use of labor market platforms?
  • Why do European economies employ a larger share of workers on temporary contracts than US economies do?

Who Should Attend: Business executives looking to learn more about the global economic environment and human resource executives seeking new solutions to key talent shortages.
