An upcoming webinar will offer case studies and best practices to those who manage a contingent workforce. "Optimizing High Volume Contract Labor in a Light Industrial Environment" will take place 11 a.m. Eastern/ 8 a.m. Pacific on June 20, 2006. Interested parties can register at http://www.iqnavigator.com/june20webinarmain.html at no cost.

Rob Quadracci of Quad/Graphics will describe the key elements and concepts to successfully run a contingent workforce program for light industrial operations. Rebecca Rogers, Executive Officer from Staff Management and John Martin, Senior Vice President Strategy and Technology, from IQNavigator will also review best practices for automating and operating a full managed service program.

Contingent labor systems use technology to control spending and ensure compliance with contracts, budgets, and other requirements. Experts in the staffing industry anticipate a nine percent growth in the $100 billion industry as more organizations seek solutions to constrained budgets and staffing difficulties.

As the Human Resources Manager for Quad/Graphics, Quadracci wanted to have more control over contract labor orders and improve data management, especially in areas such as billing and supplier performance. Quad/Graphics implemented software from IQNavigator upon the recommendation of Staff Management, one of its suppliers. This resulted in significant cost savings and peace of mind.

"We renegotiated contracts [with suppliers], which allows us to reduce our rates overall," said Rob Quadracci. "Most important, we streamlined so many processes that it had a definite financial impact and made things easier for our managers."
