Ask an Expert: Pro Tips for Managing Contingent Workers with Workday

Workday Pro Tips

Join us on Thursday, September 24 at 10a PT/ 1p ET for an expert discussion on managing contingent workers within Workday.

To maximize your ROI with Workday when it comes to contingent workers, you need to go beyond the initial user manual. You need to consider topics such as classifications, manager experience, and how to even define who to categorize as a contingent worker in Workday.

We have invited two Workday implementation experts, Jacob Jones from Utmost and Deidre Pflaumer from Collaborative Solutions to answer your toughest Workday questions regarding your contingent workforce. Not only that, but you will get insights from folks who implemented Workday across a diverse range of industries. 

Below are a few questions that we will tackle, but send us a note ahead of time or ask a question live:

  • What are the Pros and Cons of including contingent workers in Workday
  • What is the right staffing model? Position, Job, or Mixed?
  • How should you manage other integrations with Workday when it comes to contingent workers?

Can't attend live? Register anyway and we'll send you the recording.
