Market changes such as globalization and access to talent are leading organizations to reconsider the ways they engage workers. Rather than hiring traditional, full-time employees, companies are increasingly looking to external workers and service providers – including contingent workers, independent contractors, consultants, freelancers and more – to remain flexible in a shifting landscape. Across the world, more than 35 percent of workers are external, and that number is expected to grow to 50 percent in the near future.
Companies can no longer afford to manage their external workforce and employees in silos. A new trend study from German analysts Lünendonk & Hossenfelder GmbH in collaboration with SAP Fieldglass looks at more than 100 companies in the DACH region and how they address total workforce management.
What are their needs, challenges and strategies? How do they ensure that they stay ahead of the competition when competing for talent? What results do we see when companies start to manage their workforce holistically?
The study also looks at common hurdles identified by HR and procurement around breaking down barriers and implementing a unified approach to the flexible workforce.
