Who are your employees? Are they independent contractors or contingent employees? How can you successfully outsource functions to India or China? What is the future of offshore outsourcing and how is it transforming the way we work?

Whether it's working with independent contractors or offshore outsourcing, companies need to adopt a strategic plan to balance business needs and minimize any potential exposure. We invite you to join us for an interactive discussion with our panel, to discuss challenges and practical solutions when outsourcing, whether it's working with independent contractors or off-shoring functions to markets like China and India. The panel will discuss steps to consider as you enter into these relationships, which include everything from selecting the proper partner, strategizing when hiring or at unemployment, guarding your intellectual property, and security issues to help ensure your company avoids the common pitfalls encountered by outsourcing. We will also cover "Top 10 Strategies" before outsourcing functions to overseas markets, including China and India.
