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 workforce 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 first Extended Workforce Strategy Board meeting was completed on Sept 26th in Chicago. Procurement and HR leaders deliberated on the management science, technologies, challenges, and strategies to shape the future of Unified workforce.
