How our advisory services can optimize your contingent workforce

The on-demand, flexible workforce that contingent workers represent is a growing part of most organizations – as high as 35% by some estimates, and growing year-after-year. That being said, most organizations can be better prepared to deal with the complexities and intricacies of managing this often disparate workforce, spread across multiple departments, divisions and locations throughout organizations.

The challenges are compounded by a fundamental lack of visibility of headcount and spend, leading to process inefficiencies, waste and excessive time to fill key positions.

HCMWorks Contingent Workforce Advisory Services help you determine how to better access, retain and manage a fully optimized contingent workforce, as well as protect your business against the inherent risks of misclassification and co-employment that are part and parcel of working with contingent workers.

“The HCMWorks team was the foundation in the implementation of a contingent workforce managed solution which extends from the hiring process to the payment of consultants.  For more than 5 years, our partnership with HCMWorks enables us to effectively meet our objectives in accessing a large talent pool, all while controlling our costs.”
