Over 100 contingent workforce managers from across the United States gathered together this past week for the 2018 VMS Professionals Conference at McDonald’s Hamburger University in Oak Brook, IL. This was the 14th Annual Conference, where industry experts and fellow end-users shared insight on trends and explored how to adapt to what’s coming next.
We heard from leaders from various corporations on what they are doing to attract contingent talent and change their programs: from leveraging a brand and creating a program brand, to leveraging alternative talent such as retirees and freelancers. We heard from Seyfarth Shaw’s Kara Goodwin about real life cases and were provided knowledge to help mitigate risks. Staffing Industry Analysts’s Dawn McCartney shared information regarding technology and personal experiences in the contingent space, proceeded by Genuent’s Kip Wright who helped us understand branding and what others are doing to enhance the candidate experience for contingent workers.
Thank you, Special Olympics Illinois, for stopping by to give us a 50th anniversary preview and share how our companies can get involved.
We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
