Building a multi-country contingent workforce strategy for Asia Pacific

It is no secret that managing a flexible workforce comes with great challenges. From cost management and skills shortages, to legal risk and physical security, mismanaging this critical source of talent can cause real problems for even the most experienced programme owner. To answer these challenges, more and more companies are considering engaging the help of a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and/or a Vendor Management System (VMS). 

Staffing Industry Analysts data shows that across the APAC region between 2013 and 2014, MSP spend under management rose by approximately 28% to around $9 billion USD. During the same period, spend through VMS rose by approximately 20% to around $12 billion USD. There is no doubt labour markets across the region are developing fast and it is essential that organisations develop the right talent acquisition strategy if they are to win the all-important race for skills and maintain a competitive advantage in the future.
While these strategies have been tried and tested in the US and Europe, the varied and changing legislative landscapes, languages and cultural differences found in the APAC region means that a ‘one size fits all’ MSP approach is fraught with challenges.
In this interactive webinar, Staffing Industry Analyst’s Peter Reagan (Director, Contingent Workforce Strategies and Research, Europe & Asia), will be joined by Roop Kaistha and Vinos Samuel of Randstad Sourceright. Based in Singapore, both Roop and Vinos have over 10 years’ experience in designing, implementing, overseeing and expanding MSP programmes across APAC using a number of VMS technologies.

We will explore detailed case study and discuss some of the key challenges and lessons learned that can make the difference between success and failure. At the same time, these industry veterans will provide a view of the next 3 years and provide some useful insight as to how you might set yourself up for success.

Whether you have an established programme and are seeking the latest in best practice, or if you are interested in, thinking of, or are about to embark on an MSP journey in the region, this will be a very valuable hour for you. Don’t miss it!

Great content. I've encountered many of these regionally-specific hurdles in implementing programs within APAC. Very excited to see how emerging policy revisions and economic conditions continue to shape how the CW industry moves into this part of the world.
