The pace of change in today’s workforce is accelerating. As the demand for contingent workers increases, organisations are faced with new, and ever more complex challenges and regulation. Yet this workforce is usually managed at arm’s length through numerous third parties, creating significant risk and cost exposure to your organisation.
As part of our online Emerging Workforce Summit series, we’ve assembled an elite team of risk management professionals specialising in legislation, business advisory and the future of work. This webinar delivers insight into emerging the major legislative risks to business in the face of inaction or non-compliance.
Our speakers, who include the former Fairwork Ombudsman, Chief Executive of the RCSA and leading industry advisor, provide best practice and legislative insight into managing your risk when engaging a blended workforce in the wake of a global pandemic.
