MBO’s Future of Work roundtable series is a monthly panel-style discussion amongst key business leaders and experts to review top trends in the changing workforce landscape. We'll discuss how forward-thinking enterprise organizations can both respond in real-time and plan for future success.

The April session highlights the growing trend of organizations to directly source talent—bypassing traditional third-party labor sources—to not only establish talent pools and virtual benches of at-the-ready talent, but also to create direct relationships with the country's top skilled labor. In this panel, we'll highlight how organizations are doing this successfully and how they're integrating it into their overall workforce and recruiting initiatives.


  • Monica Lucero, Senior Manager, Future Workforce Solutions at Deloitte
  • Bob Lucas, Senior Vice President, Enterprise Solutions at MBO Partners
  • More to come! (TBD)

Key Takeaways:

  • What is necessary to establish a successful direct sourcing program
  • What organizations with defined programs can achieve in terms of cost savings, productivity, and access to skills
  • How to build a business case for your own organization to establish or improve a program

Space is limited - don't miss out! 

We'll reserve time answer questions in the second half of the session.
