Field Nation brings skilled staffing solutions to the United Kingdom and 13 countries in Europe
Minneapolis / London –16 July, 2013 – As companies strive for agility in order to compete in international markets, the need grows for just-in-time expertise and local talent. To assist in meeting these global staffing needs, Field Nation, a leading provider of independent field service technicians to the information technology (IT) industry, today announced its expansion into the United Kingdom and 13 metropolitan areas in Europe.
Temporary staffing and independent field service work has continued to grow globally. A recent study from the European Forum of Independent Professionals shows that across all industries independent contracting in Europe has risen 82% since the year 2000.
“With the fast-paced growth of the contract and independent workforce in Europe, the time is now for Field Nation’s service to connect businesses with the right contractors,” said Mynul Khan, CEO of Field Nation. “Our platform empowers businesses to coordinate multiple projects with skilled professionals across locations on the continent.”
Established in the United States in 2008, Field Nation supports more than 35,000 active users. Now the Field Nation business management platform gives IT contractors and businesses in Europe the ability to source work and find talent based on specific needs. The Field Nation platform will also enable businesses to coordinate projects across multiple European locations.
Field Nation has helped global companies like Merchandising Technologies, Inc., with its international IT sourcing strategy.
“Field Nation has been an excellent source to secure field service technicians throughout Canada,” said David Ginn, Global Field Operations Manager, Merchandising Technologies, Inc. “The level of transparency and client support is exemplary, and in turn, has dramatically increased our ability to provide strong execution and SLA performance for our customers. We look forward to our launch in the UK!”
Through its web portal, FieldNation.com, organisations in Europe can find the skilled person needed who meets the exact demands of the assignment. In addition, skilled European professionals searching for independent contract opportunities can use Field Nation to manage the process – from work order to payment.
Field Nation is initially launching in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom effective 15 July, 2013.
