Hanover, MD (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
Allegis Group Services announced its partnership with Staffing Industry Analysts on its Certified Contingent Workforce Professional (CCWP) program, the first certification course available to HR, procurement and staffing professionals who manage contingent labor. The certification program was announced at Staffing Industry Analysts’ Contingent Workforce Strategies Summit held September 20 -21 in San Diego.
Certified Contingent Workforce Professional is an accreditation program that assesses knowledge of contingent workforce program management best practices and concepts. It validates mastery in a broad body of knowledge related to managing a contingent workforce. The first CCWP course will be held December 5 – 6, 2012 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Burlingame, CA.
“We are pleased to align ourselves with a company that has been dedicated to the contingent workforce for over 20 years,” said Chad Lane, President at Allegis Group Services. “We share a common goal with Staffing Industry Analysts – the importance of not only establishing standards, but providing an avenue for managers who oversee contingent workforce programs to validate their expertise and enhance their careers. Together we’ll deliver a compelling new program.”
The course consists of 12 modules presented over a period of two days. Each module focuses on a specific subject that addresses real-world scenarios and instructors will use a variety of lectures, training exercises and quizzes. Instructors are industry-leading contingent workforce professionals with a deep knowledge of the course content. Attendees will be required to attend the two-day course and pass the online exam in order to become certified.
”Staffing Industry Analysts is thrilled to be working with Allegis Group Services and our partnership is creating something totally new and unique,” said Bryan Peña, Staffing Industry Analysts’ VP of Contingent Workforce Strategies and Research. “We are both focused on building a program that elevates and legitimizes the role of the contingent workforce manager and establishes new standards for the industry.”
Over the next 12 months, Staffing Industry Analysts will continue to develop and expand the Certified Contingent Workforce Professional program to span all areas of contingent workforce program management.
