LASSO’s 2nd Annual Survey Result Infographics, “Managing Labor in the Event Service Industry” and “Event Industry Standards”, explore emerging trends and prevailing benchmarks that can be applied across the Event Service industry.
January 10, 2017 (ATLANTA, Georgia): LASSO, an Event Workforce Management Software and Mobile App that enables Event Service companies to pull together labor processes and simplify crew management, today announced the launch of their 2nd annual Event leadership survey results. Published as two comprehensive infographics, “Managing Labor in the Event Service Industry” and “Event Industry Standards”, LASSO’s annual survey explores what challenges leaders in Event Services face when scheduling and managing a contingent workforce.
“We’re excited to launch our second annual survey results,” said Angela Alea, president of LASSO. “After many conversations with the leaders in this industry, we discovered that there was a significant interest in obtaining quality industry data as well as more robust best practice information. Our annual leadership survey explores these concepts and uncovers several developing trends and industry benchmarks.”
Highlights from the survey results include:
- Misclassification audits spur more companies to issue W-2s over 1099s
- Biggest concern for Event Companies: Remaining competitive with their workforce
- Large increase in companies automating time capture processes due to ACA and state regulations
- Other results include: Continent workforce trends; Challenges when traveling an event crew; How companies process and manage per diem; and more!
“Managing a complex and contingent workforce in the Event Service industry is a challenge,” said Alea. “There are many moving parts, and so many things change, even on an hourly basis. Because of this, managing labor processes within this industry has become more of an art than a science since accessing enough good data in order to make the most strategic business decisions can be difficult. The results of the survey enable companies in this space to gain a better overall understanding of how others are managing their complex event crew and will be able to benchmark their own processes accordingly. These results will also go a long way in helping the Event Service industry, as a whole, to begin to develop overall industry standards.”
