February Learning Lab

Portfolio Careers for HR Professionals

Categories: TAHRA Learning Lab

Presented by Jane Mudgett
Morgan Stanley Wealth Management

A Portfolio Career is defined as "a tapestry of a variety of eclectic employment experiences; employment in a series of short-contract or part-time positions."  In a portfolio career, instead of working a traditional full-time job, an individual works multiple part-time jobs (including part-time employment, temporary jobs, freelancing, and self-employment) with different employers that when combined are the equivalent of a full-time position. Portfolio careers offer more flexibility, variety, and freedom, but also require organizational skills as well as risk tolerance.
Join us in February as Jane Mudgett, Financial Advisor, shares ideas and examples of Portfolio Careers and how they can be solutions to employees and are more flexible with job and career options. The goal of this lab is to help HR and hiring professionals be open to alternative, or non-standard hiring and development practices and better utilize the knowledge, skills and abilities of employees within multiple departments, as well as offer part-time solutions versus termination.  Employers can use these alternatives to capitalize on company provided training and experience and retain proven performance.  As Jane will present, the portfolio career process takes reflection, analysis and a review of culture in order to be successfully implemented as part of your organization.
