Buying or implementing a contingent labor management program, or managed staffing program, is not easy. But it’s well worth it because as most contingent labor studies and analysts have shown, it can save you both time and money.
According to Staffing Industry Analysts, approximately 66% of companies they surveyed have a managed staffing program in place. And according to Aberdeen, companies who focus on contingent labor management and use an MSP, save more than 16% on their contingent labor spend, and realize 31% more savings than companies that do not.
So, there’s probably only one reason as to why you have not already engaged a Managed Service Provider (MSP) or started to manage the program by yourself: it feels like a big, “corporate” undertaking. Just identifying and managing your staffing suppliers can be like herding cats, but your real reason for a lack of MSP may be around gaining buy-in and getting your company to embrace a managed staffing program.
