  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) September 18, 2021 - Miles Everson, the CEO of MBO Partners, will be conducting an online event titled, “Miles Everson and Valens Research @ Northeastern University: Reinventing the Global Workforce” on September 20, 2021, Monday, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM EDT. This event will be presented in collaboration with Northeastern University and Valens Research.

    After spending a career of nearly 30 years at PwC, the largest professional services organization in the world, Everson left his top job as the Global Advisory and Consulting CEO. Everson worked and contributed a lot to make the firm a magnet of talent and one of the top employers on the planet.

    Why did Everson step down from his role as the global head of the biggest of the Big Four consulting firms?

    It’s because he wanted to take part in “a total reinvention of the global workforce.”

    Long before the pandemic, Everson saw a gross incompatibility between the modern approach to staffing and the global future of work. He said companies still focus too much on knowledge as an asset to be trapped versus capturing the importance of knowledge flows.

    Because of this gross incompatibility, Everson believes there’s a need to reinvent the workforce to impact the overall performance of various firms around the world.

    The Fractionalized Workforce
    This type of workforce consists of a pool of freelance and contract workers who work part-time for a variety of employers or work full-time hours by splitting their time between many fixed-term jobs.

    In the recently released preview of the 2021 State of Independence Report in America, MBO Partners has captured the current state of the independent workforce. According to data, independent work is becoming increasingly popular and viable, with a 34% growth year over year―from 38.2 million in 2020 to 51.1 million in 2021.

    These numbers show it’s about time that business leaders and executives start adopting a new business model that welcomes independent professionals in the workplace.

    Here are some benefits of hiring independent workers:
    Companies are able to do more work without increasing their fixed costs.
    There is labor-force flexibility in terms of accessing different capabilities for different needs.
    Organizations are able to expedite the process of exploring new market opportunities.
    Access to talent is not bound by geography.
    There is ease of separation and reduced legal risks.
    Companies get an outside perspective from independent professionals.
    The independent workforce is highly skilled and can work with specific teams for specific jobs.
    Companies gain competitive advantage by bringing together functions and skills in new ways.

    Becoming an independent worker may be more attractive to students now more than ever because of the ever-changing work landscape. Flexibility, autonomy, and control that independent work provides is valued not only by students but also by 63% of independent workers.

    Join Miles Everson as he shares his personal experiences and expertise on how organizations can survive and succeed through workforce reinvention at the “Miles Everson and Valens Research @ Northeastern University: Reinventing the Global Workforce” webinar. In this one-hour online session, he will discuss:

    Why a global CEO would leave his company to reinvent the global workforce
    How his life-changing decision is now creating a trend in the professional industry
    The worker-driven steps that create partnerships between independents and clients
    How to seek greater profitability, efficiency, and fulfillment for the newly reinvented workforce
    How a newly reinvented workforce will benefit the global economy in the coming decades

    Students at Northeastern can expect to gain insights into the future of the workforce as they prepare for their careers. No matter what field you are interested in, Miles’ advice will benefit everyone who is preparing to enter the workforce.

    Learning from the direct experiences of a former PwC CEO is an invaluable opportunity that doesn’t come by often, so be sure to take advantage of this unheard of opportunity.

    If you are interested in an opportunity to work as a consultant for high-profile clients, including Miles, then be sure to stick around until the end of the webinar where there will be a co-op panel and Q&A for the Valens Research Consulting & Marketing Co-op position.
