The strategic merger of ICon Professional Services and Synergy Services now has a new name and a new identity: TalentWave. The union of ICon Professional Services and Synergy Services in October 2015 brings together two strong leadership teams, as well as the people, processes, and technology to address the increasingly complex challenges of the growing independent workforce.

ICon’s Teresa Creech will remain chief executive officer. The TalentWave brand reflects the “dramatic change that is taking place in the workforce and the workplace today,” Creech said in a statement. “More than one-third of the U.S. labor force are independent workers, and that number is expected to continue growing.”

TalentWave’s proven independent workforce engagement solutions, delivered through the company’s iConnect SaaS technology platform, include:

ICverify, for independent contractor vetting and validation;

IC Engagement, Agent of Record (AOR) services;

Professional Payrolling, Employer of Record (EOR) services;

Vendor Qualification and Subcontracting services;

Talent Community, talent re-engagement solution; and

Global Services.

In conjunction with its brand launch, TalentWave has also introduced the Health Check offering through its newly formed Advisory Services group. This assessment service is a fast, affordable, simple way for companies to evaluate the risk in their independent workforce program.
