Our supplier insight and third-party risk platform makes procurement easy for the whole business by reducing risk and friction. 

It’s never been more important to stay on top of your supply chain and manage it strategically. Contingent helps put your team on the front foot with real-time supplier insights that inspire transparency, help you meet regulatory requirements, unlock opportunities and build resilience.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options Contingent provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Contingent is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
