The Best Strategies Spring From Human Intelligence Built on Deep Domain Expertise and AI Applied to Mounds of Structured Data

Companies like yours typically spend more money on their workforce than on anything else – often hundreds of millions (or more) on contingent workers. Yet few companies have effective modelling capabilities to support overall workforce planning. And while Global 2000 companies spend hundreds of millions (or more) on contingent workers, few have the strategies or tools in place to optimize the spending on and deployment of those resources.

Why? Because strategically building, expanding and optimizing an organization’s contingent workforce management approach is complex and far-reaching.

Brightfield helps our clients build a comprehensive workforce plan, assess the maturity of your CWM program, and define your program’s strategy and design principles. We show you how to manage your contingent

workforce and architect an operating model and governance structure for your contingent workforce program to successfully execute and oversee your strategy. We’ll also help you execute the right process for selecting your MSP and/or VMS providers. We deliver the customized recommendations necessary to drive continuous improvement, regardless of the complexity.

The Brightfield consulting team has experience not only as consultants but also as contingent workforce practitioners with decades of experience. And, our consultants are backed by our proprietary AI-driven workforce analytics platform and sophisticated tools that give better answers to difficult questions faster than ever before.
