The key is consistency

In roles where productivity is paramount, having experienced workers on the job for extended periods is often critical to success. Flexible workers are increasingly being used on a long-term basis to fill seasonal needs, support big projects, and fill in for permanent employees who take time off. There's also a growing emphasis on temp-to-hire, whereby flexible workers can audition for permanent positions via a long-term assignment.

These long-term assignments can yield huge benefits. Rather than having a series of workers coming in to fill a staffing gap, a long-term assignment keeps training time to a minimum and raises the average level of experience on the floor. Experienced workers sourced from the flexible workforce are also a ready-made candidate pool for permanent positions.

So how do businesses find the flexible workers who are ready to commit to a long-term assignment, and what's the best way to manage them for long-term success? We've assembled a panel of experts from among our business partners to discuss their experiences and offer their top tips. Come and here these leaders, along with our own Bryan Garcia, on April 9 at 1 pm EDT:
