As the overseer of your company's contingent labor program your goal is the same, no matter where you are located in the world. At the core, the job for all CW program managers is to place the right worker in the right position in the right time frame.
However, a great deal of your program's geographical coverage or a given project's location will dictate your approach and planning. This seems elementary, but it bears repeating that you cannot simply "cut and paste" one strategy employed in one country or region as a template in another. To learn about the expansion of CW programs by U.S. companies into Europe, read CWS 30 editor Subadhra Sriram's article Crossing the Ocean -- which provides dos/don'ts and highlights areas of legislative and cultural differences that affect CW program management and expansion.

Best Practices in Managing Your Program Globally
Do you know the best practices for managing a global contingent workforce program? Does your program implement these practices with hiring managers, suppliers and contingent workers on a global basis?
In this information packed webinar we will discuss both the theory and the practice of contingent workforce management on a global basis. We'll explore the dos and don'ts involved in taking your program global as well as some of the most common mistakes made. And we'll also hear from contingent workforce managers who have been through the process and can share practical advice from the trenches. If you are thinking about going global with your program or if you are already working multi-nationally but know that you can get to a higher level, then this webinar is for you.
