Event Description

Around 1 out of 5 jobs in the United States are filled by contract workers, recent studies show. In fact, independent contractors could make up half of the U.S. workforce within the next decade. This trend also is keeping pace internationally.

With the ever-increasing use of contractors for critical services and supplies, it’s clear that having a strong plan in place to manage this growing workforce is key to success.

Join Danny Shields, senior director of industry relations at Avetta, as he takes a look at the evolution of contractor/supplier risk management, discusses current challenges and mitigation methods, and outlines what the future may hold for contractor management.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • What top organizations in the industry are doing to solve current challenges in the contractor space.
  • Who are the main stakeholders for success.
  • How the process of contractor/supplier risk management will evolve.
