“I am thrilled to have Eric join our team," said Jeff Phelps, CEO of iWorkGlobal and Nelson Compliance. “
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2016
iWorkGlobal and Nelson Compliance announced two changes today made to elevate the contingent workforce services they provide: the launch of two new state-of-the-art websites and the addition of Eric Edelstein, Ph.D. to the leadership team as Chief Technology Officer.
Edelstein, the former President of Business Solutions for the Nelson Family of Companies, is joining the team in the San Jose, California area. With access to all that Silicon Valley has to offer, Edelstein will oversee the development of new technology, products and services designed to best support clients’ and partners’ global workforce and compliance needs. “I am thrilled to have Eric join our team, “said Jeff Phelps, CEO of iWorkGlobal and Nelson Compliance. “He will be a tremendous asset, leading our continued efforts to identify and use innovative technology to build industry-leading solutions that help our partners avoid costly risks.”
The U.S. Government Accountability Office reported in 2015 that 40% of the American workforce, more than 60 million people, are now considered contingent workers. This employment shift is not solely an American phenomenon; it is occurring worldwide. With companies increasingly doing business globally, the value of contingent worker management, contractor invoicing and payment, and compliance services is growing.
A proliferation of class action lawsuits resulting in multi-million dollar settlements and judgements have catapulted independent contractor compliance into the public limelight, but workforce compliance laws are complicated–often vague, contradictory, and ever-changing. Even with the best intentions it can be impossible for companies to navigate the potential minefield of requirements to stay compliant, especially for companies with a workforce spanning multiple countries.
The new iWorkGlobal and Nelson Compliance websites will assist companies in asking the right questions and addressing needs at the most crucial moments, giving them time to pivot and avoid costly mistakes. New industry-leading blogs share the latest updates and current trends in global employment and contractor compliance. A soon-to-come risk calculator will help companies understand the potential costs of non-compliance. Site visitors will also find links to online communities where they can discuss their company’s particular challenges with industry experts. The sites’ refreshed, simplified user interface and user experience combine to improve navigation with optimization for mobile devices, ensuring companies always have access to the information provided from any device.
These new websites are only one of the many resources iWorkGlobal and Nelson Compliance provide. Contact iWorkGlobal or Nelson Compliance to learn more about their suite of tools and services vital for any company that engages contingent workers.
