9:20 AM Interactive Case Study: A Journey Into Globalization: Contingent Labor At Deloitte

Given the increasing complexity and presence of global operations and supply chains, more and more demands are being placed on contingent workforce programs to deliver qualified talent in a timely yet compliant manner. Whether it’s a new overseas office opening up, augmenting additional project personnel, or supporting off-shoring efforts, there’s no shortage of situations where contingent labor professionals are being asked to be the experts in program globalization. This engaging case study will show you how Deloitte’s program stepped up to the globalization challenge and give you the tools needed to further your own journey, helping you to:

• Stay on top of the complexities surrounding local regulatory requirements for employees, freelance/gig/independent and self-employed workers
• Ensure your program aligns with data protection rules and regulations
