Sevenstep Team | October 14, 2020
BOSTON, MA, (October 14, 2020) – Sevenstep, a global leader in total talent outsourcing solutions, including product offerings for recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) and managed service provider contingent workforce programs (MSP), kicked off a roundtable series, “The Exchange,” with a virtual MSP event last week. Attendees included Sevenstep clients from the oil and gas, airline, online grocery and railroad industries, as well as HR and talent acquisition consultants.
Topics discussed included the impacts of COVID-19 on the contingent workforce, tracking and auditing contingent labor and statement of work spend, and how the relationship between human resources and procurement is fast-tracking in the ‘new normal.’
“It was powerful to bring this group together to discuss these talent imperatives as we all navigate and solution for the ‘new normal,’” said Brian Knapp, Head of MSP for Sevenstep. “Many of the initiatives surrounding the contingent workforce were already in place pre-COVID-19 but have been accelerated given the current environment. The topics we addressed, including allocating headcount among labor types, are important and they are weighing on many businesses at the moment.”
One of the hallmarks of the Sevenstep philosophy is partnership-driven talent solutions. Bringing people together from a variety of industries, disciplines and backgrounds to exchange ideas is especially important during these pivotal times. This cross-pollination is crucial to meaningful, long-term success for both Sevenstep and our clients.
“Sevenstep has been a fantastic partner in the Weatherford MSP program. Bringing together global leaders to discuss big topics like how we are all managing our contingent workforce during COVID is just another way they demonstrate that partnership – that they want to make meaningful connections for all of us is part of what differentiates them as a provider,” said Jason Munoz, Global Director – Head of Global Talent Acquisition & Employee Experience at Weatherford.
Sevenstep’s “The Exchange” series will continue next with an RPO roundtable this winter. As an industry thought leader, Sevenstep will use the series to drive innovation and continuous improvement across its programs while connecting senior-level talent acquisition, HR and procurement leaders to one another.
