Purely Vendor-Neutral Contingent Workforce Management

PRO Unlimited is a pioneer in contingent workforce management, laying the foundation with the launch of independent contractor misclassification and co-employment risk management services in 1991. PRO followed this with industry-first managed service provider (MSP) and vendor management system (VMS) offerings. And the innovation has continued throughout the years.

In a solutions space that has become increasingly crowded over the past few years, PRO’s unique contingent workforce management approach stands out.  These include:

  • First, our purely vendor-neutral, global model enables clients to manage international contingent labor spend underneath one consolidated umbrella.
  • Second, our integrated MSP and VMS approach gives clients a single point of contact that delivers better business outcomes than disaggregated contingent workforce management solutions where the MSP and VMS are two separate vendors.
  • Third, as our contingent workforce management solution includes self-sourcing, clients can leverage their brands to attract top contingent talent.
  • Finally, PRO’s executive management team is the most tenured in the industry, with decades of experience in how to gain optimal business outcomes from contingent labor programs while managing risks.

Vendor Management System Innovations In the article titled,  “Contingent Workforce Management Technology,” Brad discusses a number of innovations that both HR managers and contingent workers can leverage in the era of the consumerized VMS. Like in any other industry, the objective is to develop an environment that promotes efficiency.  The mindset is to create a synergy between enterprise processes and the ease-of-use that these VMS deliver to stakeholders. VMS providers should be designing and/or redesigning their technology solutions to more closely resemble consumer applications.

The Evolution of Vendor Management Systems

November 15, 2016
HRO Today magazine tapped PRO’s Senior Director of Product Marketing Brad Martin to share his expert industry perspectives about the evolution of Vendor Management Systems (VMS). In the article titled, “The Consumerization of Contingent Workforce Management Technology,” Brad discusses the top issue facing the VMS landscape – a lack of consumerization. He says that the technology has historically suffered from a robotic and cumbersome approach to user interaction. However, a dramatic change is taking place in the contingent workforce management space. The “consumerized enterprise” solutions found in some of today’s leading consumer applications are now crossing over to the business domain. There needs to be a synergy between enterprise processes and the ease of use that these VMS deliver to both HR managers and contingent workers. Brad goes on to highlight a number of consumerized VMS features including: Mobility Contextual interface design Vendor profiles containing a “Yelp!-like” review system Enhanced UI To learn about these innovations and the impact they have on efficiency and business outcomes, read the full article here.

Expand the Talent Pool with Self-Sourcing

November 8, 2016
Providing a pipeline to quality talent is a critical component to any successful self-sourcing program. Organizations must anticipate the types of workers they will need to source in preparation for the next project. Sometimes managers know whom they want to bring onboard for a particular job or project and do not need to use a staffing agency to fill the position. In other instances, an organization wants to leverage its brand and stature to source talent directly. These individuals might be retirees, former full-time employees, independent contractors, freelancers, or referrals. Unlike traditional staffing suppliers and recruiters, PRO Unlimited takes a unique approach to sourcing talent and building networks with YourSource. As the talent exchange and online work platform, PRO offers companies the ability to search, negotiate, and engage directly with non-employee talent. The goal is to provide companies with direct access to those qualified and talented professionals as they are needed. YourSource enables organizations to realize the benefits of self-sourced talent while managing it underneath the umbrella of their centralized contingent labor program. This ensures the cost and risk management and talent quality controls that are use for third-party talent sourcing are extended to the worker. Self-Sourcing Requirements There are a variety of different components that an organization needs to have in place to succeed with a self-sourcing strategy including: Technology platform that is fully integrated into a company’s Vendor Management System (VMS) Data analytics and business intelligence that leverage reporting and visualizations Expert Managed Service Program (MSP) consultants who possess a breadth of experience across different industry segments Applicant portal that allows organizations to leverage their brands to attract new talent If you or a member of your team would benefit from further discussion on how PRO is helping companies implement winning contingent workforce management programs globally, please contact a PRO representative at 800.291.1099 or email at info@prounlimited.com.   Disclaimer: The content in this blog post is for informational purposes only and cannot be construed as specific legal advice or as a substitute for legal advice.

Consumerizing the Vendor Management System

October 30, 2016
We asked you to stay tuned for Part 2 of our Huffington Post feature on Vendor Management Systems (VMS). Well, Part 2 is here and we can thank PRO’s Senior Director of Product Marketing, Brad Martin, for sharing his expert insights in an article titled, “Consumerizing the Vendor Management System – Part 2.” Brad looks at the importance of consumerizing VMS. VMS within the contingent workforce have been plagued by this lack of consumerization. Like many industries, the technology has historically suffered from a robotic and cumbersome approach to user interaction. More than ever, there needs to be a synergy between enterprise processes and the ease-of-use that these systems deliver to both managers and contingent workers. Additionally, another critical component that cannot be ignored is that VMS access is available on any device – meeting users wherever they are in their day. The goal is to create an environment of efficiency and to empower both the worker and the manager. Read the full article to learn what other VMS features will result in delivering greater business outcomes across the enterprise like never before.
