It’s a love hate thing…

After 18 Year in the recruitment industry (I know, I had a very easy paper round!) My mind sometimes wanders to the “What if” section of my grey matter.

Tesla’s Elon Musk has stirred controversy over the last month by announcing that all contractors must be vouched for by a permanent member of staff, or see their contracts terminated the following Monday. A general focus on efficiency at the company has led to specific concerns regarding the use of contractors and sub-contractors – Musk refers to the problem as a “Russian nesting doll of contractor, subcontractor, sub-subcontractor etc before you finally find someone doing actual work”. This is not an uncommon issue for large firms, particularly hi-tech and high-end engineering companies, but is Musk’s hard-line approach a little too harsh?

How To Get Rogue Spend Under Control

What is ‘rogue spend’? Rogue, maverick and tail spend are common terms in the procurement business, and they all mean roughly the same thing – unexpected, unpredictable or unorthodox spending.  This sort of spending can happen when purchases are made outside of agreed supplier contracts, often ignoring defined procurement processes.
