Think you're ready to present your business case to outsource your organization's contingent workforce program? Think again.
What is Managed Staffing?
Organization that decide to self-manage their contingent labor management program understand the nuisances that comes with this responsibility.
Depending on who within the organization bares the burden, one or more departments are tasked with all or some of the following items:
- Sourcing and hiring of contingent candidates
- Tracking start and end hire dates of a fluctuating workforce
- Negotiating supplier rates
- On-boarding and off-boarding employees
- Managing and reporting on contingent labor spend
- Compliance and payment of the contingent labor program
Often after self-managing a program directly, some HR and procurement professionals ultimately decide it is more cost-effective to outsource this function to a Managed Services Provider (MSP). This is essentially when a third-party enters the equation and takes over the contingent labor program for the hiring organization.
