ClearPath Workforce Management, a leading HRO with a focus on contingent labor compliance and engagement, has been invited to share its expertise on “Industry Trends in Contingent Workforce Management” during the Institute for Human Resources Virtual Workshop on January 30th. The webcast is part of a two day virtual conference that is the fourth in a series of workshops in the IHR Contract Workforce & Talent Exchange Certification Program.
The panel will focus their attention on looking at ways in which organizations can be positioned to properly address the challenges today’s economic climate places on their contingent workforce planning and management.

Topics on the agenda to discuss include:
- Preliminary IHR Contingent Workforce Survey data
- Talent acquisition in contingent workforces – how effective is your sourcing practices?
- Integrating the contingent workforce into the overall talent mix – how are “temporary” workers incorporated into your organization?
- Vendor neutrality truths and myths
- Risks associated with contingent workforces – legislative trends and legal precedence
- Cost/value assessment of contingent workforces
“Compliance is becoming an increasingly important factor when engaging temporary workers, particularly when it comes to classifying Independent Contractors and exempt versus non-exempt status”, says Jason Posel, senior vice president for ClearPath, “but it can be challenging to manage all risk areas and one of the main trends for 2012 will be for companies to leverage a specialist firm to ensure they are compliant with the ever changing federal and state laws and regulations”.
IHR’s certification and accreditation process is developed through an independent Advisory Board composed of industry experts including ClearPath President, Renee Fink.
