Herndon, VA. January 31, 2013. MBO Partners, the leader in the $250 billion and growing independent consulting category, announced that MBO Enterprise Solutions will launch a series of educational Webinars for corporate talent procurement professionals. MBO Enterprise Solutions supports independent contractor compliance and engagement programs for companies, and its clients include more than 40% of the Fortune 100.
The new series will focus on best practices surrounding the engagement of independent contractors and microfirms, providing actionable learning and best practice sharing opportunities for those responsible for procuring or managing contingent talent pools.
ìAs more companies engage with small service providers and consultants to complete mission-critical work, the rewards also must be balanced by an understanding of the right way to engage,î says Jay Lash, VP of Market Strategies for MBO Partners - Enterprise Solutions. ìWe identified and sought to fill a need in the market for quality education around topics like misclassification, IP loss, security concerns, wage and hour, state unemployment, co-employment, business liability and insurance coverage, just to name a few.î
The goal of each one-hour-long Webinar is to provide quality education to help those responsible for contingent work become experts to their own organizations on issues surrounding independent contractor compliance and engagement. Topics will range from how to classify this emerging talent group, and also how to keep them motivated and engaged.
Hosted by Lash, the series will feature guest speakers including enterprise buyers, current independent business owners, and subject matter experts in IC Law and Contingent Workforce Management who are currently executives within the industry.
The series, which is free of charge, is available for sign up here.
Signing up will automatically register participants for the first Webinar, Client Readiness: Are You Ready to Benefit from the Independent Consulting Movement?, a key primer for clients considering an IC program for their enterprise.
