The Blended Workforce and How to Embrace It

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Around 40% of today's workforce is made up of non-traditional working people, or a "blended workforce". The blended workforce is made up of people who work full-time and part-time, as well as temporary workers, freelancers, and contract workers.
