Three Things We’re Looking Forward To At SIA Gig Economy 2023

The Staffing Industry Analysts’ (SIA) Gig Economy 2023 conference is just around the corner, and we’re counting down the days! This event is always a great opportunity to gain insights into the industry and learn what to expect in the coming months.

Here are three key things we’re looking forward to:

  1. Learning more about AI in the staffing industry
  2. Showcasing our success stories
  3. The rise of staffing platforms

Learning more about AI in the staffing industry

The growing potential of AI in staffing is hard to ignore. The technology has come a long way, and many of us have already incorporated it into our day-to-day (maybe we’re using it to help compose emails, synthesize information or a myriad of other uses). While the efficiency and precision AI brings to the table are game changers, we’re looking forward to learning more about the different ways it is being used in staffing and recruiting and how agencies are dealing with it ethically. As AI integration becomes more profound, understanding the challenges of biases, transparency and ethics is crucial. How the industry veterans navigate this at the conference will offer invaluable insights.

These are the AI & the Future of Work tracks we’re looking forward to:

  1. ‘ChatGPT & Generative AI Unleashed: Practical Applications for Staffing Firms & Gig Platforms’
  2. ‘Jobs of the Future in an AI-Driven Economy: Opportunities and Disruptions Ahead!’
  3. ‘Transforming Staffing Sales and Marketing with AI and Automation’
  4. ‘Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Considerations in an AI World of Work
  5. ‘Mastering Talent Management in the Age of Artificial Intelligence’

Showcasing our customers

Conferences are always a great time to share success stories, reflect on journeys and learn from experiences. At Gig Economy this year, Activate CEO Rohan Jacob will be sharing “Hard-Earned Lessons: Implementing a Platform Model for Your Staffing Business” (September 20, 2023 at 10:30 AM) alongside our client, Crown Staffing. As part of SIA’s ‘Platform and Tech Innovation Track’, this session promises to offer a blend of insights, strategy and real-world experiences, backed by SIA’s research findings.

The rise of staffing platforms

In the recently released, “Temporary Staffing Platform Update 2023” report from SIA, staffing platform adoption is predicted to jump from 12% in 2021 to a staggering 44% by 2024 in North America. This shows that it isn’t just about getting the latest in technology. It’s a reflection of an industry that is ready for transformation. As these platforms become more integral to the staffing process, they promise enhanced efficiency, a better candidate experience and job-matching capabilities. It’s clear staffing platforms will be at the forefront of this revolution, reshaping how firms operate and deliver value.

As always, this SIA Gig Economy conference promises to deliver thought leadership, great dialogue and cutting-edge technology updates about the role of staffing in an ever-evolving world of work.
