039: How to Select the Right Temporary Workforce Management Solution, with Terri Gallagher

This week, I am joined once again by Terri Gallagher. You may recall I invited Terri on the show previously, back in Episode 20, to talk about the role that procurement can play in the management of the temporary labor category.

Terri is an expert in the field of Human Capital Management, and specifically contingent labor.  Before starting her own practice, she has experience as an executive of a number of leading services providers in this space such as Adecco, Manpower and Tapfin.
