Herndon, VA (Vocus) October 15, 2010
MBO Partners, the leading Independent Contractor Engagement Specialists, announced they will be a Pinnacle sponsor of the Staffing Industry Analysts’ Contingent Workforce Strategies Summit, October 19-20 in Denver, Colorado.
Dennis Kanegaye, President of the Enterprise Solutions division of MBO Partners, remarked, “We expect the focus of this year’s CWS Summit will be on how Statement of Work consultants and other challenging categories of the contingent workforce can be effectively brought under control in managed programs. It comes down to ensuring risk mitigation and winning enterprise visibility, while maintaining a high program adoption rate.”
“With this highly competitive economy, there has never been a greater need for organizations to learn how to safely and efficiently access contract talent, and doing that through a centralized program is becoming essential to maintaining compliance,” said Jay Lash, VP of Market Strategies for MBO Partners.
Lash, an expert on contingent workforce management, will be one of the speakers at a featured Tuesday panel session focused on risk, titled, 'Are Your Independent Contractor Risks Visible? What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You.' Moderated by Barry Asin, President of Staffing Industry Analysts, the session will explore how contingent workforce managers must mitigate the risks of misclassification, co-employment, and other independent contractor risks.
Throughout the event, executives and subject matter experts from MBO will be delivering private briefings on effective approaches for engaging independent contractors and small services vendors operating on a statement of work (SOW) basis.
