SAP deploys Fieldglass to manage its contingent workforce - TechTarget

SAP deploys Fieldglass to manage its contingent workforce - TechTarget | Contingent Recruitment Tips | Scoop.it
Read how SAP is deploying the Fieldglass Vendor Management System to oversee its growing contingent workforce of 20,000 people.
Elevate Direct's insight:

SAP's own acquisition was a no-brainer for selection as a VMS. A bit like Microsoft running Windows as its OS or Apple staff using iPhones. How much does this type of strategy positively or negatively impact a company and where would you find an example to measure? Maybe Oracle running SQL Server somewhere or Salesforce using an alternative CRM. Not likely huh.....

5 Reasons Why Merging #Contingent & Permanent #Recruitment Makes Good Business Sense | Hub http://t.co/98pmKlhSFU #contigentworkforce
Elevate Direct's insight:

A much talked about topic. The silos of perm and non-perm hiring have been merged and de-merged a lot over the last 25 years. As non-perm hiring starts to look more like traditional perm hiring of a few years ago, benefits maybe realised in revisiting this as a strategy. However we remain unconvinced. Candidate expectations and experience as well as output will of course always be impacted.
