CHICAGO, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Supply & Demand Chain Executive, the executive's user manual for successful supply and demand chain transformation, has selected Navistar, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Navistar International Corporation (NYSE: NAV), as a recipient of an SDCE 100 Award for 2016. Navistar, Inc. partnered with SAP Fieldglass, the global cloud technology leader in services procurement and contingent workforce management, and Bartech, a professional services firm that delivers global workforce management and staff augmentation solutions, on a highlighted project that focused on an integrated and innovative approach to talent acquisition.
In 2014 Navistar engaged SAP Fieldglass as its Vendor Management System (VMS) and Bartech as its Managed Services Provider (MSP) on an effort to gain enterprise visibility into its contingent workforce. Leveraging the resources and capabilities of its in-house recruiting team and expanding its focus beyond permanent hiring to include recruiting contingent workers, Navistar reduced its cost per hire by nearly 50 percent without sacrificing worker quality or speed to hire — and also produced a significant bottom-line impact.
"A holistic view of the entire workforce is needed to gain an advantage in hiring," Doug Elston, Vice President of HR Operations, Navistar. "Navistar has been able to achieve this through bridging the traditional divide between the employed workforce and the contingent workforce. Through our partnership with SAP Fieldglass and Bartech, we've found a way to leverage our resident recruiting muscle to take advantage of the evolving and growing pool of contingent talent – giving Navistar a competitive advantage in our space."
The SDCE 100 is an annual list of 100 great supply chain projects. These projects can serve as a guide for supply chain executives who are looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. These projects show how supply chain solution and service providers help their customers and clients achieve supply chain excellence and prepare their supply chains for success.
"Our goal with 2016's SDCE 100 is to shine the spotlight on successful and innovative transformation projects that deliver bottom-line value to small, medium and large enterprises across the supply chain," says Ronnie Garrett, editor of Supply & Demand Chain Executive. "The selected projects can serve as a roadmap for supply chain executives looking for new opportunities to drive improvement in their own operations. We congratulate all of our winners for a job well done!"
