In the fast-paced and competitive business landscape, mastering the management of a contingent workforce is essential for any organization aiming to maintain flexibility and a strategic edge. Here’s how you can enhance your approach to managing this vital component of your workforce.

5 Items That Help You Better Manage Your Contingent Workforce:

Comprehensive Solutions for Diverse Needs

Today’s businesses require a diverse range of workforce solutions that cater to varying project demands and employment types—from temporary and contract workers to independent contractors and professional services for Statement of Work (SOW) engagements. Effective management of these components includes handling vendor relationships, compliance, analytics, risk management, talent pooling, and streamlined payroll and invoicing processes.

Leveraging Cost Efficiencies Through Competitive Sourcing

By engaging with a diverse and competitive supply chain that includes minority-owned, women-owned, and veteran-owned firms, your organization can drive down costs significantly. This approach not only reduces overall contingent workforce expenses but also secures top-tier talent by fostering a competitive environment among suppliers, ensuring that you receive the best value for your investment.

Enhanced Decision-Making with Advanced Technology

Utilizing leading technology in Vendor Management Systems (VMS) like Fieldglass and others like it simplifies the submission, screening, and selection of candidates, making the management of contingent labor both effective and efficient. These systems offer powerful analytics and reporting tools, empowering your organization with the data needed to make informed decisions and adjust strategies dynamically.

Supporting Diversity and Meeting Compliance Goals

Emphasizing diversity within your workforce is not just a moral imperative or just a box to check, but also a strategic advantage. Engaging with a supply chain that prioritizes diversity helps in meeting both federal and state diversity spending goals and enriches your talent pool, ultimately aiding in achieving broader corporate diversity and inclusion objectives.

Secure and Compliant Workforce Management

Effective management of a contingent workforce also involves stringent adherence to compliance and risk management protocols. It’s crucial to ensure that all labor practices meet legal standards and that risks associated with security and non-compliance are minimized, thereby protecting your organization and its workforce from potential legal and operational repercussions.
