MANAGE YOUR CONTINGENT WORKFORCE WITH A SPECIALIZED MSP

Finding the right resources to fill the growing talent gaps in your changing workforce is becoming an increasing difficult challenge. Leveraging the contingent workforce provides access to a vital source of quality talent, but it also comes with a number of operational, financial and legal challenges and risks that must be carefully managed.

Why do organizations partner with a Managed Services Provider (MSP) to support their contingent workforce management objectives?

The complete contingent workforce lifecycle impacts many stakeholders within one organization, both internally and externally. It has strong implications for Finance, IT, Talent Acquisition, HR, Procurement, Risk and general lines of Business. Furthermore, vendor management technology is necessary to enable your organization to manage this workforce effectively. Organizations quickly realize how helpful an expert advisor like HCMWorks can be in successfully supporting them through this transformation.

So what is a Managed Services Provider (MSP) Program?

A contingent workforce MSP program is an outsourced solution managed by an external firm such as HCMWorks, that combines process, practice and technology. It allows you to centralize and consolidate all your non-permanent worker spend under one program, so you can optimize the entire workforce, for increased visibility and control.

The benefit of using an MSP

The HCMWorks MSP program enables you to easily streamline, simplify and manage the contingent workforce supply chain from requisition to payment and every process in between. The outcome is increased visibility on contingent headcount and spend, reduced costs, greater and timelier access to talent, as well as greater compliance with federal, provincial and state regulations.
