Workforce Sourcing Council
Thursday March 16, 4:45 to 5:35
Open to all SIG members and buy-side Non-members. This is the first meeting of a new council designed to bring together sourcing professionals tasked with the procurement of various components of their organization's workforce. This council will serve as a means for both the providers and buyers of these services to share their experiences and exchange best practices. Through a series of discussions and working groups; educational whitepapers, research and webinars; as well as in-person events, this council will become the go-to source for the best information specifically for Procurement Professionals. The workforce of most major organizations can no longer function effectively with only employees of that organization performing the work. They must augment their workforce with various forms of non-employees; Agency temporaries, Consultants, Freelancers and others working on projects defined by a statement of work. In order for organizations to efficiently engage these workers they must employ systems and suppliers that conform to a program designed and fulfilled by procurement. Working collaboratively with other departments like human resources, finance, legal and the lines of business, sourcing must understand all of the dynamics at play in order to create a series of venues for obtaining the best talent, at the right price and just in time. During this session the council will decide on the initial priorities and review the results of the survey completed by SIG members on this subject.
