Founded in September 2010, TAPP (Talented Alliance of Part-time Professionals) serves individuals who choose to work part-time and companies that employ them. TAPP provides professional development and other resources to elevate the individual.
Studies indicate an across the board trend towards part-time employment in the workplace. The current workforce is 33% hourly and part-time workers and predicted to be 50% in the next 3 years. Employers are utilizing part-time, flex time, and job sharing options in order to maximize effectiveness and costs. At the same time, America’s work force is shifting towards flex schedules in order to balance multiple priorities in their lives. Together, these trends point to a new future in workplace culture. Fewer and fewer individuals elect to work the traditional 9-5 work week, preferring instead to pursue an opportunity that allows flexibility in their day-to-day lives.
TAPP was created to meet the unique needs of this segment of the work force. Our mission is to leverage the power of part-time staff to create maximum impact.
