Is Temp The New Perm?
March 11, 2014
Hosted by Peter Weitz
Lay-offs, acquisitions, and downturns have occurred at historic levels over the past several years and have left white collar professionals seeking different and newer ways to take control of their work lives to avoid becoming work casualties often caused by these events. One way these professionals accomplish this is to become a dedicated full-time project professional working for professional services firms that focus on helping businesses variably manage change through their access and utilization of these experienced resources. Many people historically have thought of interim resources as providing “temps” or low-level staffing. However, the landscape has significantly changed where more and more companies are turning to professional service firms to hire project professionals within Accounting, Finance, IT and Human Resources. Tune in on Tuesday at 10AM to hear about how employees are driving the job market over employers.
