Creating a competitive advantage amid chaos: The power of an integrated talent strategy

Register for an on-demand webinar.

Disrupted supply chains. Fluctuations in market demand. A global pandemic. Geopolitical instability. Few could have predicted the events of the last two years. Fewer still can anticipate what lies ahead. With uncertainty the only guarantee in the new world of work, organizations require workforce strategies that deliver agility, flexibility, and innovation while remaining intuitive and cost-efficient.

Mike Hofman (External Workforce Management Lead, Roche Diagnostics), Nicole Knoblauch (Head of Operations - Switzerland, Hays Talent Solutions), and Kari Lessing (Global Solution Manager, SAP) explored how the implementation of an integrated talent strategy, grounded in technology, enabled Roche to thrive amidst uncertainty.

This webinar explores:

  • How collaboration built a crisis-proof strategy that could source, track and offboard workers, managed within a streamlined system.

  • The vital role that market-leading VMS technology played in scaling systems to respond to fluctuations in demand.

  • The unique value that dedicated workforce experts delivered in elevating Roche’s contingent candidate capability.


Are you confident your contingent workforce strategy could withstand a critical test?
