External workers (contractors, contingent labor) have served as a critical workforce segment for the utilities and oil & gas industries for decades. While external workers augment full time employees and allow an enterprise to quickly scale a workforce in response to shifting skill and labor demands, their use can also create risks related to worker capabilities, organizational commitment, and workforce alignment and collaboration. In this session, we will discuss external workforce management from both employer and worker perspectives and consider how organizations can optimally manage their total workforce, including contract labor, to foster positive business and worker outcomes. Join this half-day workshop to gain a better understanding of SAP’s Total Workforce Management Intelligent Enterprise Scenario, including how intelligent technologies and psychological science are being combined to allow organizations to assemble a more effective and engaged total workforce that is better able and more willing to execute. Address your questions to SAP professionals, hear insights from your peers, and take away best-practice insights that you can apply to your own operations.
