Just because your MSP offers a wide range of benefits and tech offerings for your organisation, it doesn’t necessarily mean your business is seeing the real benefits of a true MSP partnership. In fact, most companies are unaware that they are wasting huge amounts of time and money due to inefficient contingent workforce management strategies.
If we use the example of Tesla, where Elon Musk was planning to cut contractors from the business. However, upon digging deeper into the contingent workforce within Tesla. Elon Musk made the following statement…
“I have been disappointed to discover how many contractor companies are interwoven throughout Tesla. Often, it is like a Russian nesting doll of contractor, subcontractor, sub-subcontractor, etc. before you finally find someone doing actual work. This means a lot of middle-managers adding cost but not doing anything obviously useful.”
We often find that companies with ambitious strategic contingent labour plans, often run before they can walk. Driving additional technology and cost saving initiatives to a contingent labour program which has leakage in other areas, doesn’t make much sense at all.
We also see spiralling supply chains further hindering contingent labour transparency, as well as losing focus on brand. Typical midsize organisations engage an average of over 40 staffing vendors across the organisation. Operating with such many vendors, as well as poor management strategies, fragments your organisation’s entire contingent workforce program. Organisations lose the value of true vendor partnership and performance, by soliciting so many vendors. Furthermore, a lack of oversight and control over all these relationships, creates billing and payment mayhem. In many instances, time-sheet accuracy is questionable, and the result is over-payments by employers who have lost control of the management of their contingent resources.
Before many businesses look to mature their MSP partnership, it’s important that contingent labour sponsors have a tangible benchmark to review the maturity of their contingent labour program. As a leading independent contingent workforce solution provider, we pride ourselves on not offering a one size fits all service model and tech offering. Instead, through our contingent workforce audit and contingent labour maturity matrix, we work closely with organisations to audit contingent labour programs and to identify leakage and risk. Our contingent workforce audits and maturity reviews then enable us to provide contingent workforce solutions, which meet the needs of your progressive contingent labour program.
