Keys to CW Success: The 4 Critical Elements of a Contingent Workforce ProgramCWS 30 July 2.14

CWS 30

All contingent workforce program (CW) managers seek to continually improve Quality, reduce Cost, increase Efficiency and reduce levels of Risk in their programs. In addition, benchmarking is a critical tool in this emerging area of expertiseâ€â€?because beyond year over year improvement of your program, you must know how you compare to like programs in like industries.

Based on the maturity of your organization's CW program, these are the questions you must ask around these 4 critical CW program elements:

  • Quality: How do you ensure that you are getting top quality talent and that your program is of sufficient quality as well?
  • Cost: Are you paying too much for your contingent labor? Or maybe you're not paying enough? And have you factored in the total cost of your program? Are your program management costs in line?
  • Efficiency: Is your program performing efficiently or is there waste in your use of resources in terms of time, money or other scarce resources?
  • Risk: Are you managing and minimizing the level of risk in your contingent workforce program? Risks can include compliance, legal, physical, supply chain and a myriad of other risk factors.

This October, CW experts, analysts and practitioners will gather at the Contingent Workforce Strategies (CWS) Summit in Denver, where they will answer these important questions. The conference program's sessions will be tracked by these four critical program areas to help you fine tune a specific area. You'll be able to use the Track label to help you identify appropriate sessions to attend based on your interests, needs and program maturity level.

So, join your peers -- CW program managers from HR, procurement, IT or category management representing Fortune 1000 (or equivalent) companiesâ€â€?at the CWS Summit to learn from experts. Improve your CW program. Learn about best practices to get the results you're looking for.

The CWS Summit (October 19-20, 2010 at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel, Denver, Colorado) will be in its sixth year and continues to be the top learning and networking event for contingent workforce management. To view the conference details and to register, visit or call 800-950-9496.
