Register for Webinar

Session time: 1 hour

Drastically changing work trends and evolving consumer needs have left many companies with skill gaps. Join experts from Upwork and Sprout Social to learn how your company can engage talent strategically while maintaining a consistent social presence across growing teams.

You need new hires onboarded quickly, armed with the right tools to represent your brand and deliver a strong customer experience. By staffing strategically, companies can rely more on freelancers as opposed to viewing them as a last resort in their talent strategy. In fact, 38% of businesses plan to significantly increase their usage of remote freelancers in the next 2 years. Social and customer success are the epicenter of how brands market and engage their audience. Hiring the right social media professionals and customer support specialists will be critical to your company’s success.

In this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • How the changing workforce impacts the rise of independent talent
  • Why social is critical to your brand voice and customer experience
  • Tips for social media freelancers
