Define the economic and management standards for the new world of work
Create a sustainable competitive advantage in the talent supply chain

Macroeconomic volatility and digital transformation are driving an ever-growing role for Procurement and Human Resource in managing the unified talent supply and mix.  And yet, there is still no governing body to establish and operate the thought leadership and price benchmarking standards agenda.  

Our goal is to harness the collective wisdom of the most progressive global enterprises to define the economic and management standards that create sustainable competitive advantage in the talent supply chain.  The outcomes will be actionable intelligence that participating organizations can use to inform planning, budgeting, cost, and performance management of the contingent and SOW consulting categories.

We believe leaders have a unique opportunity to change the rules of worker engagement and thus deliver immense business value.  

We are excited to announce that the Extended Workforce Strategy Board members are meeting on Sept 26th in Chicago to talk about the current approaches, challenges, and strategies to shape the future of work.
