Most successful companies have a long-term vision and an expectation of where they want to be and how they will get there. As a result, each new business year inevitably brings with it corporate resolutions and company goals that will pave the way for the months ahead.
Such goals often include increasing sales, opening new locations, and offering new and improved products and services. To manage costs and streamline operations, many organizations are turning to contractors to supply them with goods and services that previously were kept in-house. Hiring contractors presents companies with both benefits and areas of potential risk that must be addressed throughout the process.
This presentation will examine best practice methods in contractor management, outlined by the Campbell Institute, a division of the National Safety Council, and review the steps that companies should be taking now and throughout the year to establish a safe and conscientious plan for managing the contractors they work with.
