Contingent Workforce Management in a Contemporary World

Contingent Workforce Management in a Contemporary World
November 6, 2012 at 2:00 - 3:00 PM ET
Christopher Dwyer, Research Director & VP, Operations(Ardent Partners)
Over the past few years, contingent labor (also known as contract or temporary labor) has evolved in such a way that it requires organizations across the globe to enact next-generation strategies and solutions. The modern "contingent workforce umbrella," a term the Aberdeen Group utilizes to describe the components of contemporary contingent labor, including traditional temporary labor, professional services, independent contractors and SOW-based projects / services, involves a series of complex competencies and capabilities. Aberdeen Group research has found that over 26% of the average organization’s total workforce is considered contingent in some sense, adding criticality to this complex component of organization spending.

Join Aberdeen Group Research Director Christopher J. Dwyer as he walks through the research findings from his 2012 Contingent Workforce Management study and unveils a series of frameworks, strategies and solutions for effectively managing the typical contract workforce. During this event, Christopher will highlight growing trends within this space, as well as discuss how everyone in attendance can leverage a series of competencies and strategies to improve their contingent workforce management programs. Using his 2012 Contingent Workforce Management research study as a foundation for this presentation, Christopher will include hard-hitting research findings, surprising trends related to the utilization of contingent labor across the globe, and unique ideas as to where the space will traverse in years to come.
