In the first part of this series, we asked staffing companies to share the challenges they face as part of the order-filling process with us. As they talked about each task, we got a better understanding of the how they currently source, recruit and deploy workers. For the second part of this series we explored what might happen if those manual processes were automated.
We’re looking forward to an exciting week as we head out to Washington D.C. for Staffing World 2018, which takes place October 16-18 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.

Visiting Texas is always a good idea but it’s definitely more exciting when you’re looking forward to a conference like SIA’s Collaboration in the Gig Economy Oct. 4-5 in Dallas. We expect to have a great time at this much-anticipated event and we can’t wait to meet you.
Back in the old days, the word “gig” usually only applied to musicians and other performers when they were hired for a few nights, weeks or months by a particular venue to entertain. Most of the time, they were paid at the end of the night based on ticket sales and that was that. Nowadays, the term has come to mean so much more. In fact, many believe we’re living in a “gig economy,” where products are delivered and services are rendered by a new population of the workforce.
