1.00 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Business Acumen, HR Expertise, Relationship Management
Workplace Application:
Learn to recruit, pay and leverage 1099 employees to meet HR objectives as a Department of One (DOO). 

It's no secret that HR has big-time expectations, and this is amplified when you are the single HR professional for your entire organization. Your company size or budget doesn't justify adding more HR staff; you alone are expected, as a DOO, to recruit an awesome team, build an award-winning benefits package, design flawless training sessions, enter precise data into the HRIS database and much more. Prioritizing works for a while, but you need help: it's time to get creative! How can HR leverage the gig economy to keep you ahead of the game? This interactive session will help you build a virtual team of experts to conquer your most critical projects—without hiring a single full-time employee.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the differences between an employee and contractor.
  • Find out about three sources for recruiting 1099 HR contractors.
  • Know the processes and paperwork required to hire a 1099 contractor.
