The Rise of the Contractor

Presented by Theresa Casarin, VP, Talent Canada Creative Niche and Mandy Gilbert, Founder & CEO of Creative Niche

Mandy Gilbert and Theresa Casarin, will be sharing best practices, concepts and approaches to consider when leading and managing a contract workforce. There are obvious advantages to hiring contractors and freelance professionals in your organization. Not only are they typically very flexible, highly specialized and less of an HR hassle (i.e. they can get started immediately), but overall they are more cost-effective. We are placing more and more contractors in several functions ranging from web development and content creation to roles that were historically full-time such as strategists and fractional Chief Marketing Officers (CMO's).
