[Live Q&A] - Best Practices for Implementing CW Programs Globally

Global CW Programs - Register

Join us on Tuesday, August 18 at 10:00a PT / 1:00p ET for a live Q&A with Kerry Kiley, Sr. Program Manager at Workday. 

The natural evolution of many contingent workforce (CW) programs is to expand globally and include workers in multiple geographies. In fact, in Staffing Industry Analysts’ 2019 Buyer Survey, 32% of enterprises said they already had a global CW program, and another 49% planned to have one within two years.

To better understand some of the challenges in implementing an international program, Kerry Kiley, Sr. Program Manager at Workday will share both best practices and pitfalls to avoid. Below are a few questions that we plan to discuss:

  • What are the common difficulties of a global implementation?
  • Are there cultural challenges for US-centric programs?
  • How much needs to be localized vs. taking established frameworks?
  • What other stakeholders should be involved?
