Randstad Sourceright will also showcase its RPO, managed services (MSP), contingent workforce (CWS) and blended workforce solutions at Booth No. 755.

Companies are engaging contingent and free agent workers more than ever, hiring contractors, consultants and other high-level talent. New generations of workers with critical skills and changing values often embrace free agency as a matter of choice. But, for talent planners, it means the old ways of managing full-time employees in the HR function and contingent labor through Procurement is rapidly changing. Employers must look to manage all talent acquisition under a common strategy, and RPO enables organizations to do just that.

During "Cisco Uses RPO to Help Hire Up to 15,000 a Year," Rebecca Callahan, president of RPO for Randstad Sourceright, and Mark Hamberlin, vice president of HR, Global Staffing for Cisco, will explore the challenges and opportunities of total talent acquisition as experienced by Cisco. As the company fills between 13,000 and 15,000 positions a year, Hamberlin will discuss the flexible and adaptive model he devised to manage changing recruiting volumes and how Randstad Sourceright's RPO services play a role in sourcing and selecting qualified applicants.

Attendees will learn the key issues they need to consider before implementing total talent acquisition; how to get HR and Procurement on the same page; how to attain better visibility into the entire talent supply and more transparency across all processes; and how to gain insight into one of the biggest trends in today's talent landscape.

This session is part of the HR Technology Conference's new Outsourcing track. The annual event gathers thousands of HR professionals from more than 25 nations and the industry's leading experts for three days to discuss emerging and continuing trends and the technology and best practices that help enhance, streamline and power HR processes.

Randstad Sourceright's global talent experts will also be available to help organizations understand how an effective talent strategy can help position their companies for growth and build the workforces that will help them achieve organizational goals while maintaining flexibility. Attendees can visit Randstad Sourceright to learn more at Booth No. 755 during the conference's expo hours.
