HRO Today Forum

The Ritz-Carlton

10 Avenue of The Arts

Philadelphia, Pa.


As the structure of work and HR continues to change, organizations must become more agile to drive decisions that lead to optimized business results. Today's HR leaders have adapted to changing conditions by building and engaging effective workforces, relying on essential talent and outsourcing the rest to world-class partners that deliver innovation, technology and best practices to support informed decisions and enable success.

As a gold sponsor of the HRO Today Forum, Randstad Sourceright supports the event's goal of providing senior HR practitioners with access to the practices and partners that can improve their organizations' performance. Conference attendees can visit Randstad Sourceright's global talent solutions experts who will be in attendance at the show to learn more about how RPO, contingent workforce strategies, blended workforce solutions and managed services (MSP) can help their organizations connect with the right talent while remaining flexible to changing market conditions. In addition, the company's executives will be featured in two sessions:

"HRO Today Institute Research Showcase"

During this panel, Rebecca Callahan, president, Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO), for Randstad Sourceright joins Peter Cappelli, Director of the Center for Human Resources at The Wharton School, to share exclusive highlights from Randstad Sourceright's "Workforce Challenge" research. Nearly all organizations capture data on various aspects of their recruitment programs, such as cost per hire, time to fill, source of hire and quality of hire. However, these measures indicate the effectiveness of their recruitment program, but not the impact on the business. Callahan will discuss the extent to which organizations are moving beyond the measurement of recruiting effectiveness to analyze the true effect recruiting has on business outcomes.

"Managing Contingent Suppliers – Is It Time to Change Our Thinking?"

In this panel discussion, Randstad Sourceright's Mary Kristynik, senior director, Supplier Strategy, and Jennifer Klehr, strategic account director, will discuss the changing dynamic between contingent workforce suppliers and their customers. As companies depend on suppliers to deliver great talent, while driving returns in cost and efficiency, many organizations realize that simply dictating supplier performance demands is not enough. Kristynik and Klehr, along with Tim McPherson, president and COO of Nesco Resource, and Tracy Whitmeyer, program manager II of The Siemens Flex-Force Program, will share best practices in supplier management, including the growing collaborative focus on customer review, score-carding, managing portals, governance and keeping the supply chain warm during low activity and ramping it up quickly in times of high demand.

Senior HR professionals attending the HRO Today Forum who would like to learn more about how they can measure the impact of recruiting on their business strategy and how they can improve their relationship with contingent workforce suppliers are encouraged to attend these informative sessions.
