Workforce acquisition has gained increased recognition as a critical business process that ultimately determines an organization’s success. Yet, until recently, there have been few integrated systems that enable organizations to unify the workforce acquisition process across the enterprise. Most organizations treat the various aspects of workforce management as separate silos. Hiring salaried and hourly workers remains the domain of human resources, while a procurement department often manages contingent staffing. Diversity initiatives and affirmative action planning may reside with HR, the legal department, or an outsourced organization.
