HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - February 20, 2014) - Today, MBO Partners announced the launch of IC Engage, a new service that will make it easier for companies to engage the independent contractor segment of the workforce.
IC Engage helps organizations of all sizes work with independent consultants (ICs) with less risk and hassle. This IC engagement program packages the best practices used by large, complex organizations into an easy-to-launch service. The benefits of IC Engage include:
- Proven compliance program
- Identifies at-risk ICs and redirects into reclassification-safe engagement program
- Engage talent in as little as a week
- Multiple engagement alternatives for consultants
"Whether a company uses 5 or 500 independent workers, there is now a quick and easy option for them to enroll independent consultants easily and gain the benefits of risk mitigation, cost management, and reduced administration that large organizations have enjoyed for years," says Gene Zaino, CEO of MBO Partners.
MBO Partners' 2013 State of Independence in America report revealed that a growing headcount of Americans working as individual self-employed contributors reached 17.7 million, up 10% from the base year of 2011. For many organizations, engaging this talent has proven to be problematic, with a patchwork of federal and state agencies regulating the use of independent workers. These regulations, often at conflict with one another, penalize organizations entangled by the myriad of rules surrounding independent contractor engagements, causing reclassification actions, co-employment suits and wage and hour penalties.
Leveraging its decades of experience and successful track record serving large enterprises, including nearly a third of the Fortune 100, MBO is now packaging these enterprise-grade best practices into an offering suitable for organizations of all sizes.
"For those companies that may have shied away due to a perceived burden of change management, our new IC Engage service affords them an easy-to-use solution that their managers and ICs will love," said Dave Putt, Vice President of Consultant and Client Services for MBO Partners.
MBO Partners will host a free informational webinar on March 12, 2014 at 1pm ET entitled "5 Steps to Risk-Free Contractor Engagement." During this webinar MBO will introduce IC Engage and guide you on the path to an efficient and compliant contract talent program. Register here today.
