How does a total workforce management strategy enable companies to be agile in times of uncertainty? This was the topic Martin Thomas, Philips’ head of total workforce management, shared at Procurement Reimagined, hosted by SAP.
Philips’ HR and procurement teams work closely with Randstad Sourceright, its managed services provider (MSP), to bring workforce visibility and true agility to its global contingent workforce, which spans more than 25 countries.
“Our driving purpose at Philips is to make lives better, so when the pandemic hit, we wanted to do everything we could to increase production of the monitors and ventilators that were in such high demand,” said Thomas. “Visibility into our highly skilled external workforce allowed us to shift and redeploy resources quickly to do that and keep our people safe.”
