Market leader in independent workforce compliance and engagement launches new talent community solution to help clients effectively curate and safely re-engage known contractors

Foster City, CA – TalentWave, the largest and most experienced independent workforce engagement solutions provider in the industry, today announced the release of its Talent Community platform. This innovative technology enabled services solution enables enterprise clients to quickly and safely engage known workers who have successfully delivered results in the past. TalentWave will be offering private demos of the platform during next week’s Staffing Industry Analysts CWS and Gig Economy conferences in Las Vegas.

This news follows the launch of the TalentWave brand in March of this year after the merger of ICon Professional Services and Synergy Services in October 2015. “We believe the best contractor is a known contractor,” commented Teresa Creech, CEO of TalentWave. “The ability to help client companies and their contractors to effectively work together is the core of our business. This innovative solution helps solve the talent scarcity challenge that many of our clients are experiencing across their organizations, and is another example of the value TalentWave delivers at the center of the independent workforce ecosystem.”

With a dedicated Talent Community, companies can build their own preferred talent networks and quickly search for qualified workers including contractors, consultants, SOW vendors, alumni, retirees and even “silver medalists” (2nd place finishers for FTE roles). Once the best “known” worker is selected for a project, they can quickly and safely be deployed. Unlike marketplaces or online staffing solutions, Talent Community is designed for companies that value workers who have had prior experience and success with the organization. Companies will realize bottom line benefits such as high quality workers, reduced time to fill, shorter time to contractor productivity, cost savings over agency recruited workers, and compliance and engagement process efficiencies.

“We’ve been providing elements of this solution to a number of our enterprise clients for several years now,” said Kimball Norup, SVP Marketing for TalentWave. “Pulling it all together with a front-end application and building out a robust service layer is a major step forward, and uniquely positions TalentWave at the forefront of the industry in helping enterprise clients to build a bench of talent, and then safely and effectively engage their independent workers.”

In addition to introducing Talent Community to new and existing clients, TalentWave also offers a comprehensive suite of proven independent workforce engagement solutions, delivered through the company’s proprietary iConnect® SaaS technology platform, including:

  • ICverify, for independent contractor vetting and validation
  • IC Engagement, Agent of Record (AOR) services
  • Professional Payrolling, Employer of Record (EOR) services
  • Vendor Qualification and Subcontracting services
