The Co-operative Bank will outline its approach to employing temporary and interim labour in a Supply Management webinar this week.
Richard Beaumont, director of commercial operations, and Carl Du Plessis, head of talent and resourcing, will explain the bank's approach as it continues the process of separating from the wider Co-operative Group. The two will address a Supply Management webinar on Thursday 23 October on the need for organisations to effectively plan their contingent labour needs.
They will be joined by Jon Milton, business development director at Comensura, which is also supporting the webinar. He argues understanding the needs of internal customers is key to effectively managing temporary labour.
All three will take part in a Q&A with registrants.
The webinar will address the topical issue of the unpredictability of organisations’ temporary and interim labour needs and how procurement professionals need to understand and meet the needs of managers that use temporary labour and departments such as finance and HR which have a non-hiring interest in recruitment but are affected by the processes involved.
The effects of using temporary and interim labour came under the spotlight this week with a reported shortage of HGV drivers across the UK and the consequent effect on the UK supply chain. Both the British International Freight Association and the Recruitment and Employment Confederation have recorded skills shortages among drivers in the logistics sector.
