Shaping the Future of External Workforce Management


The last few years have been very turbulent, due in part to a pandemic, geopolitical tensions and the blockade of the Suez Canal. The resulting fluctuations are wild and unpredictable - it's not rocket science to say that "disruption mode" is the new economic normal! The only question is: how can you protect your business from these fluctuations? - By being able to scale your workforce capacity both up and down!


In this networking event by SAP and apsolut, you will learn more about the trends and opportunities in the field of external workforce management. Get exciting insights from leading Fieldglass experts Erika Thier and Frank Füllbeck. In addition, representatives from user companies will also have their say.


By the end of this session, you'll be equipped with the latest SAP Fieldglass innovations and understand the transformative impact it can bring to your business.


In addition to this multi-perspective and practice-oriented approach to the topic of external workforce management, this event will focus on personal networking with other experts.
