We were excited to be a returning sponsor of Staffing Industry Analysts' (SIA) Contingent Workforce Strategies (CWS) Summit in London earlier this month. It was a great opportunity to spend time with our customers and partners, as well as network and connect with other thought leaders in the external workforce management industry.
This year's theme was "New Ways of Working in the 21st Century." Sample sessions included:
We recently hosted a webinar with Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA) and Freelancer Management System (FMS) providers Elevate and Freelance.de to discuss the evolution of external workforce management technologies.
We recently hosted our second annual EMEA Best Practices Summit in Berlin. This customer-only event takes place each year in both the U.S. and Europe and provides our users with the opportunity to connect, network, share best practices and learn about the latest industry and Fieldglass news.
The most important thing we've gathered from past Summits is that our customers value learning from each other. Exchanging ideas with their peers, discussing what's worked and what hasn't, and sharing plans for expansion helps them improve their programs.
Last month we hosted a webinar to introduce our new trend study for the German contingent labor market, "Services Procurement Excellence: Taking a Closer Look at Service Provider Management and Compliance." The study was conducted by Lünendonk, a research and consulting firm, who interviewed 32 CPOs, procurement directors and managers from large companies in Germany.
Last week Fieldglass joined Ariba in Munich at its annual EMEA customer conference, Ariba LIVE. With attendance at an all-time high, the event provided a great opportunity to network and connect with Ariba's customer base and industry leaders in procurement.
