The United States spends nearly $3.3 trillion annually on external labor including contingent workers and Statement of Work (SOW) projects and services, with an expected 30 percent increase over the next three years. But companies struggle with visibility due to the rapid growth of this sector. Among other considerations, businesses need to know the number of external workers on assignment, be able to recognize high-performing suppliers and have accurate annual spend data while remaining compliant to governmental laws and regulations.
