Human Capital Supply Chain Strategies - How Has an Iconic Brand (Nike) Leveraged All Classifications of Talent Resources?

Join us Wednesday, March 4th for an informative discussion featuring a top Pacific Northwest brand, Nike. When Daniel Pink wrote the book Free Agent Nation he was envisioning talented job candidates would become more transient and market driven. Well he was partially correct. As labor demographics change and global mobility impacts the Supply Chain, forward-thinking companies are utilizing Independent Contractors, Freelancers and/or Contingent Labor to strategically supplement their core workforce. Nike looks to leverage these and other channels of talent to keep its brand competitive and win the “war for talent”.

  • Learn how a temp to perm proposition can not only make sense but become strategic to your sourcing strategy.
  • Learn how to look at large populations of talent that might be better represented by an outsourced solution. Why? So you can leverage your valued Talent Acquisition resources to focus on more specialized and critical hires.
  • See how Nike is establishing an insourcing solution (a business within a business) that is based on a cost per unit pricing approach, not wage base.
  • Investigate how Nike has built a bridge to convert highly skilled labor through its Contingent Labor Managed Program, and more.
