About this event

It’s becoming increasingly popular for companies large and small alike to refocus their hiring efforts and establish a network of highly-skilled freelancers and contractors — all in a savvy effort to increase growth, productivity and revenue (while lowering costs!). Technology has made it easier for companies to tap into more diverse talent pools, and for individuals to work more independently outside the bounds of a full-time, permanent role.

But how do you take the first steps toward hiring local freelancers and contractors? Join General Assembly and Hired for our panel of experts, who will address all your burning questions like: When​ is the right time​ to hire beyond full-time​? What positions make sense for freelancers and contractors? How do you identify and attract the right contracted talent? And finally, how do you make it all work? ​

Key takeaways include: 1) Creating a more streamlined and cost-effective contractor recruitment ​process 2) Leveraging Hired’s intelligent talent matching platform to source and hire the most in-demand contractors in your area 3) Getting the most impact out of your temporary talent once they sign on for your project
