Companies are making increasing use of contingent workers (CW), that is, the non-employees who perform work as temporary staff, independent contractors, or employees of another organization that is delivering a statement of work project plan.
Organizations are also developing their capabilities in strategic workforce planning (SWP), to ensure that their talent strategy is aligned with business priorities to meet future demands. Yet most companies do not have a robust method for determining the right mix of employees and CWs.
By integrating these segments into a common framework—total workforce management—companies can
- Model the projected impacts of different staffing options (buy/build/borrow)
- Determine the optimum balance between the contingent and employee segments
- Customize the mix in different locations, functions or work streams.
- Project the changing mix over the product or project lifecycle.
- Gain a more holistic understanding of how they use talent
This webcast will highlight findings and recommendations from a new research report from The Conference Board, Managing the Total Workforce (2013):

- Trends in CW use
- Current state: CW management and strategic workforce planning (SWP)
- What CW management and SWP can contribute to Total Workforce Management
- How to get started
Who should attend: Executives responsible for human resources, human resource strategy, strategic workforce planning, talent management, staffing, contingent workforce management, procurement, location strategy, or resource planning.
