We collaborated with HRO Today and their research team to write a paper titled, “Win the war for talent in the 21st century with a purely vendor-neutral and integrated contingent workforce Managed Services Program (MSP) and Vendor Management System (VMS) model.” The paper includes some great practitioner perspectives from executives at large, global companies such as Novartis, a healthcare company that provides solutions to address the evolving needs of patients. It also includes insights from suppliers including Zenith Talent about the purely vendor-neutral model. Here is a snapshot of the paper: U.S. businesses are using greater percentages of contingent workers to meet their staffing needs. More importantly, organizations that manage contingent labor effectively will find themselves in a better position to win the war for talent. The traditional best practice is a Managed Service Provider (MSP) using a Vendor Management System (VMS). Historically, companies have picked a staffing firm to manage the contingent labor program. However, a new best practice has emerged: a purely vendor-neutral and integrated MSP/VMS program model for managing the contingent workforce. This white paper highlights how a purely vendor-neutral, integrated MSP and VMS model helps companies successfully identify, source, track and manage professional contingent workers across the enterprise and around the world.
