As I consider the title of this webinar, I am struck by the fact that it goes against the ‘flash in the pan’ trends usually associated with technology. Standing the test of time? But blockchain! AI! Machine learning! Even as we invest in digital technologies, there are still ways to plan for the long term. In this event, we’ll get input on how to achieve that from Simon Anolick, Director of Legal and IP at HERE Technologies and Madhu Khatri, Chief Evangelist at Icertis.

We can’t deny the power and potential of the gig economy (says a lady who earns her bread in the gig economy), but that doesn’t make things any easier for the procurement and HR teams trying to incorporate freelance workers in their workforce programs. In this event, Andrew Bartels from Forrester will explain how to Source – Procure – Manage gig economy resources for optimal effect.
