Event Recap: Staffing Industry Analysts’ First Annual “GigE”

We arrived back in town late last week from a trip to Staffing Industry Analysts’ first-time event, Collaboration in the Gig Economy. Affectionately called “GigE” by organizers and attendees alike, the event featured a great lineup of keynotes, sessions and networking opportunities.

We had a great panel discussion on Day One of the event, but we were most excited to give the spotlight to one of our Specialists, Ashok. He did an amazing job representing us and sharing the Shiftgig experience during a panel on Day Two.

SIA has announced that next year’s “GigE” will be held a month earlier, Sept. 13-14, in Dallas. You can bookmark this page to learn more as details are unveiled. In the meantime, enjoy our photos from the show! We can’t wait for next year’s event.
