Fieldglass solution

I have very few information about how the Fieldglass solution is working but found some basic statements on their site. Fieldglass seems to be a marketplace where companies can have access to contingent workers and reverse. Recruiters can manage the selection process and define a Statement of Work (SoW) and source candidates for new projects.

This is the high level process suggested by Fieldglass and visible here:

Vendor Management System (VMS) Fieldglass is also providing some best practices to define whether or not a worker is an independent contractors. You can find the link to the original page here.

 Why Fieldglass?

Obviously contingent workers are very important for companies as they need temporary resources for new project and very specific skills for a short period of time.

Fieldglass allows to get in contact with contingent workers and reduce risk by selecting the right skills with relevant work experiences.

Fielglass is also providing information about hourly / daily rates.
