Last week, we participated in a webinar with Staffing Industry Analysts’ David Francis and our customer Jim Alvarez from Gesture. David kicked it off with a review of findings from SIA’s latest report on the gig economy, Measuring the Gig Economy: Inside the New Paradigm of Contingent Work.
Today, the gig economy can mean literally dozens of different types of work arrangements. There’s traditional temps in a warehouse or an office, consultants or a team performing work under a Statement of Work. There are also freelancers who tackle projects found online, or those who work one shift at a time for an hourly rate. It takes a sophisticated approach to talent management in order to supervise all of these workers alongside full- and part-time employees, interns and more.
Our thanks to Gesture CEO Jim Alvarez who provided a look inside his company’s use of Shiftgig Specialists for more than 1,000 shifts at 300+ events. Jim covered a high-level overview of our relationship, as well as how our business partnership, technology platform and metrics have helped transform his company’s events.
