“They don’t train them… they don’t invite them to the holiday party. They forget about them the moment they walk out of the building.”
To conclude this 2 part episode on flexibility in labor markets, Linda Nazareth, Cecile Alper-Leroux and Marion McGovern joined us to talk about career progression paths, the war for talent, infrastructure for hiring independent workers, and more.
