    Google allegedly uses more contingent/gig workers than FTEs. The gig economy landscape is shifting, and so is the on demand work force. Some are not at all interested in full-time, regular jobs, and are building bona fide professional free-lance careers. Issues related to co-employment and classification may be the simplest matters for employers who seek top talent, especially in their mission critical roles, and may not know how or where to recruit new streams of alt-workers. 


    Here comes Sean Ring, co-founder of Fulcrum, a San Diego technology startup which aggregates on demand sites for free lancers. His thought leadership is in digital staffing, corporate responsibility and the triple bottom line, technology related to boundary-less talent pools and talent networks. Sean earned a BS in business administration from the University of Colorado, is a LEAD San Diego graduate, and a Certified Contingent Workforce Professional. He wants to stimulate conversation about HR’s impact on future work and workers.

    Creating a Strengths-Based Culture

    Research indicates that people who use their strengths every day are six times more likely to be engaged on the job, and teams that focus on strengths have 12.5% greater productivity. With that in mind, this presentation will allow participants to learn more about the value of focusing on their own unique combination of talents to maximize personal effectiveness and performance. By understanding the ways in which each person most naturally thinks, feels, and behaves, you can more easily discover and build upon the areas in which you have the most potential to develop and succeed.


    • Defining a “Strength”
    • Why does it matter? The research
    • Introducing StrengthsFinder – a tool for measuring talent
    • Case studies & practical applications at work and beyond

    Erin will provide participants with a basic understanding of Strengths-based development and how this approach can enhance individual, team, and organizational performance.

    Key Take-aways:

    • Learn the value of focusing on strengths vs. weaknesses
    • Begin to identify our own patterns of talent/strength
    • Understand how our unique strengths impact our work and life, and how we can maximize those strengths to achieve our most productive outcomes

              Whether an organization has one or many staffers working from home or elsewhere, the company’s objective remains the same: deliver a desirable workplace destination. There are many obstacles that an organization must overcome when employing remote workers, including maintaining company culture, providing quality technology and balancing external and internal mobility. Even lagging industries like law and accounting firms are “all-in” on trying to create a winning strategy to attract top talent for all organizational functions.

              Our November roundtable facilitator, Kasey Garcia, will address these urgent workplace management matters. Kasey is an expert workplace strategist and currently serves as Senior Manager, Workplace, with CBRE. Prior to CBRE, she was a Practice Management Associate with Axiom. Kasey’s BA is in East Asian Studies from Yale, and she speaks English, French and Japanese. She recently impressed San Diego audiences with CBRE’s technical talent research results and is eager to relate how organizations can move quickly to institute workplace attractors for an ever-shrinking talent pool.
