Breaking Down Benchmarking for Real Contingent Workforce Program Value, Presented by Fieldglass
September 18 - Webinar

Yes, the availability of data creates a Pandora's box of opportunity to improve your flexible workforce program, but it's only one part of the equation. During this webinar, Thomson Reuters' Dan Khublall will share his company's benchmarking journey and how they've created a series of practices that incorporate data analysis, industry best practices and current market information for real program value and improvement.

Staffing Industry Analysts' Bryan Pena and Arjun Dutt from Fieldglass will explain how the outdated, silo-ed practice of simply comparing your program stats to others leads to wrong assumptions and conclusions. Don't miss this webinar!
