External Talent Management

Streamline how you find, source and
manage your external workforce.

External Talent Management

Today, organizations rely on many sources of talent beyond their full-time employees – including contingent workers, Statement of Work-based consultants, freelancers, private talent channels and more.

At SAP Fieldglass, we refer to this as the multi-channel workforce. To be successful, organizations need to be able to deploy external workers anywhere, at any time. And they need to be able to manage them effectively.

With SAP Fieldglass External Talent Management, you can automate the entire process of procuring and managing flexible labor – from requisition all the way through invoice and payment. Our platform supports any program model including those managed in-house, through one or more Managed Service Providers (MSPs), on- or off-site.
