No two organizations are exactly the same, and while consistency in business processes and operations is essential, it is true that successful companies do not remain static. The challenge for most companies lies in the need to drive change while retaining this consistency. As a key contributor to the talent makeup that drives many companies today, a contingent workforce (CW) strategy is subject to the same challenges associated with balancing change and consistency.
Regardless of how a contingent workforce program is initially planned and executed, there will almost certainly be a need for change and evolution of the program over time in order to drive continuous improvement and results. Whether expanding to new departments or geographies, or scaling up or down to meet changing market conditions, an effective contingent workforce strategy must have a built-in structure for managing change, maintaining performance and facilitating growth. The foundation to manage change and growth is the governance model.
