This week on The WAM Podcast, host, Linda Rigano, is joined by the founders of The Second Shift, Gina Hadley and Jenny Galluzzo.
The Second Shift is a platform that connects its business partners with a leading network of women working independently. The Second Shift is designed to help businesses find the expertise and skills they need when they need them. Members are highly-skilled, rigorously vetted experts with deep experience in marketing, finance, HR, strategy and creative. They are available for short-term projects, parental leave fill-ins, full- and part-time roles, and other flexible opportunities. The Second Shift simplifies the talent sourcing process and allows companies to access its talent pool with no commitment or cost until the right candidate is selected. Their founders believe that the on-demand economy is a key tool for addressing gender diversity in the workplace. By connecting top-quality experts with high-value projects, they are changing work for women and helping businesses thrive.
Throughout this inspiring conversation, the ladies discuss why they created this platform, how companies with more women in the executive suite actually perform better, the importance of their vetting process, their perspective on the role of big tech companies in the gradual transformation of the workforce, and how data-driven research helps their line-of-work. Our guests also offer their perspective on what women need to do differently and how in some ways they jeopardize their roles. They also talk about who their biggest influencers were and how it changed their perspective on life.
