Contingent – The New Perm
The Contingent Workforce Conference has been designed for organisations that have both a Permanent and Contingent Workforce. The term “Contingent Workforce” refers to contract, temporary and Statement of Work type contractors that supplement the permanent workforce.

As the Contingent Workforce typically represents 25% and upward of the total workforce, the need for an optimised and integrated strategy to manage the Contingent Workforce is now one of the top challenges for business today. Contingent Workforce strategy impacts not only on HR and recruitment of an organisation, it also has a significant impact on the procurement, legal and finance divisions of the organisation.
Interestingly while the advantages are obvious many organisations are facing significantly increased risks, such as co-employment, compliance to state payroll taxes and workers compensation, as well as compliance to the minimum occupational health and safety requirements.
The Contingent Workforce Conference will focus on the above issues in an interactive way. It aims to simulate and provide the opportunity to take work challenges and workshop solutions in a realistic but safe environment. Some of the sessions that delegates have stated they will gain the most value from include:

There will also be a number of workshops that will enable you to solve practical problems such as how would you:
