Day 1: Tuesday July 23

9:50 AM Panel: You’ve Got A Friend In Me: Partnership In Action Between HR And Procurement

As many of you know from experience, the level of involvement and ownership among HR and Procurement varies across organizations – there’s no one size fits all approach. This engaging panel will talk you through how various organizations stepped up to the challenge and worked side by side to make their program a success and share the resulting benefits. You’ll learn how to:

• Initiate a relationship with your HR or procurement counterpart (if you haven’t done so already)
• Developing shared goals
• Leveraging strengths of procurement and HR teams

Day 2: Wednesday July 24

12:00 PM Interactive Presentation: Branding Your Program For Success: Building Champions

It’s no secret that some stakeholders can cringe when they work with your team based on previous (not so good) experiences or other corporate initiatives that have gone ‘off the rails’. One way to alleviate this response is to develop and communicate your own contingent staffing team brand. This engaging discussion will help you understand:

• What a team brand is and why and when you might need one
• Key steps you can take now to develop a team brand
• Putting it into action – communicating your brand via words and actions
• Continuous improvement/evolution of your team brand

Day 3: Thursday July 25

10:20 AM Panel: Ethics of Contingent Labor – Are We Creating A Permanent Underclass?

Ethics of Contingent Labor – Are We Creating A Permanent Underclass?
Recent articles, particularly focused on Silicon Valley, have highlighted the rise of the contractor ‘underclass’ that does the grunt work for some of the largest Silicon Valley firms with few of the rewards typically offered by such firms. As stewards of contingent labor, is this a perception that needs to be addressed? And if so how? This thought-provoking panel will explore a variety of viewpoints and perspectives.

• Does CS create wealth disparity and is this something we should care about?
• Who should ‘stand up’ for Contingent Worker rights
• What steps can be taken to improve the perception of CS programs
