We just wrapped up our online fireside chat “Innovating Contingent Workforce Strategies in the new never normal” with Molly Spatara, Global VP of Brand at SAP Procurement Solutions and Paul Petersen, Head of Workforce Solutions at Siemens Healthineers. 

The event was our way of sharing new ideas and strategies to help organizations as they assess their workforce strategies. 

If you missed it and are looking for innovative approaches to your contingent workforce, don’t despair, it’s recorded and available here and it’s a quick 30 minute session packed with interesting insights.

We learned from Molly that SAP customers are focused on business resilience and adjusting strategies on the fly and those that are innovating at speed are those that are coming out on top. 

Paul shared with the audience in depth details into how the Siemens Healthineers team continually reimagines their contingent workforce program and it’s a journey with no end in sight. 

Siemens Healthineers have faced considerable challenges during this unprecedented time and they’ve faced those challenges through innovation to deliver what the Siemens business needs, their customers need, what their contingent workers need, and most importantly, the needs of the patients. 

By leveraging the WillHire direct sourcing platform integrated with SAP Fieldglass they’ve been able to find and stay engaged with the highly skilled workers they need and have been able to deploy and redeploy contingent workers rapidly. 

The Siemens results to date have exceeded their expectations,

  • Reducing time to fill from weeks to hours
  • Their worker net promoter score is over 9 (industry average is around 7.6)

Paul concluded that the strategies he has deployed and continues to deploy are easily deployed at other organizations, regardless of the skills and expertise needed.

I’m energized on the topic of innovation and helping organizations find their success, especially during challenging times.  We are seeing innovation everywhere we look in every industry.  We are seeing individual contributors and leaders alike bring forth new innovation in their organizations.  Innovation at this time is critical because we know agile businesses that innovate at speed have the advantage over their competition.

Molly, Paul, and I all agreed that we can’t stop now.  Innovation never stops and as a spoiler alert…we’ll be back soon with more sessions on innovative contingent workforce strategies.
