Majority of Enterprises Need Help Managing 20% of Their Workforce

Best Practices Indicate Path to Cost Savings, Quality Improvements and Risk Mitigation for Extended Workforces

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - September 14, 2010) -  IQNavigator, Inc., a leading provider of extended workforce solutions, today announced an upcoming webcast featuring Aberdeen analyst Christopher Dwyer who will further detail how top performing companies are combating the pressures of managing temporary labor. To better meet economic pressures and business demands, enterprises have found contingent labor now comprises up to 20% of their total workforce. Rising in conjunction with the increased reliance on contract employment, enterprises are faced with mounting challenges of worker quality, spend visibility and regulatory compliance.

To be held on September 22, 2010, the webinar is hosted by IQNavigator and will focus on key findings from the new Aberdeen Group study providing a deep-dive into specific strategies leveraged by companies to measure the true effectiveness of their contingent workers while ensuring compliance and increasing cost savings strategies.

The recently released report published by the Aberdeen Group, Contingent Labor Management: Strategies for Managing the Complexities of the Contingent Labor Umbrella, defines the sub-categories of contingent labor as temporary staffing, independent contractors, statement-of-work (SOW) labor, and services. The study indicates that 55% of companies view contingent labor as a high-value strategy in 2010, even beyond the stop-gap measures many companies took in 2008 and 2009.

"In 2010, our clients have accelerated their proactive focus on all types of non-employee workers," said Brian Owens, Senior Vice President, Market Strategies at IQNavigator. "This is due to cost savings opportunity and the visibility and compliance gained from 'system enabling' them. Controlling all categories of the extended workforce is now standard fare in today's best practice oriented programs."

The IQNavigator sponsored webinar will discuss top market pressure and challenges for companies currently utilizing contingent labor and explain how enterprises can measure and track the quality and effectiveness of a contingent workforce.
