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.

The Difference Maker: Contingent Workforce Analytics

August 19, 2016
The Sourcing Industry Group (SIG) asked PRO’s SVP of Strategic Planning Ben Barstow to share his views on the importance of contingent workforce data analytics. Ben emphasizes that in order for organizations to tap into the full power of contingent workforce data and analytics they need to start with the right foundation. So what does that really mean? It is critical to examine the organizational attributes that foster and drive success in applying analytics to better serve customers, provide market differentiation, and fuel sustainable growth. Managed companies don’t need to be convinced of the value and need for analytics. Experienced leaders know what it’s like to make critical decisions with incomplete information. It is these managers who appreciate having fact-based data and analysis as the basis for their decisions. Business moves too fast to have every decision researched and supported with a full analysis. Managers are often forced to make decisions based on an incomplete picture of the world. A desire for a better understanding of their business, and the world in which it operates, is the catalyst for the development of strong analytics capabilities. Those companies that have successfully developed analytics as a core competency have created a culture which fosters the development of this strength. See what Ben says about contingent workforce analytics next by clicking on the full article here.

The Omni-channel Experience for the Contingent Workforce

August 8, 2016
PRO has led the way in creating the optimal omni-channel experience for the contingent workforce. In a recent article with CIO Review Magazine, PRO’s senior director of product marketing Brad Martin outlines the importance of implementing a complete omni-channel and mobile environment for contingent workforce management programs. The Mobile Contingent Workforce Brad emphasizes that one primary way organizations are changing the contingent workforce landscape and optimizing their operations is through cloud technology; specifically creating an omni-channel experience. The “mobile workforce” is growing at a rapid rate and relies on the power and flexibility of cloud technology to deliver a robust and comprehensive omni-channel experience. And like many other industries, mobility is penetrating the contingent workforce management space; specifically, Vendor Management Systems (VMS). More than ever, it is critical that VMS software is designed for an omni-channel experience. The concept of this experience is simple, effective, and required for the workforce.  Users need to access major functions of the VMS from the web, mobile, tablet, and/or wearable.  For example, workers can quickly review and approve timecards, expenses, statement-of-work (SOW) billing, among various other notifications and requests. Providing users with the capability to access their account remotely is more than just a convenience. It is the opportunity for users to access information that drives the right behaviors and efficiencies, and contributes to the overall effectiveness of the program. Additionally, managers are increasingly mobile. Binding management to one channel— including their laptop often creates disruption. For example, consider a vice president of procurement who requires a unique position to fill. However, while in a meeting, he receives a notification for a candidate interview. Rather than wait until he returns to his desk to review the candidate’s resume, he can schedule the interview with merely a swipe, tap, and click, all in a matter of seconds.

The Power of Contingent Workforce Data Analytics

August 1, 2016
PRO Unlimited’s VP of Strategy, Analytics and Metrics Dustin Burgess shares his expertise and views with HRO Today magazine on the contingent workforce industry; specifically around data analytics and metrics. He highlights how three organizations gained insight—and a competitive advantage—by executing a comprehensive analytics program. Contingent Workforce Data Analytics In the article titled, “The Power of Data,” Dustin references that in the world of human resources and talent acquisition, companies are using data to help drive decisions about where, when, who, and how to employ their temporary workers. However, even though organizations have access to more data than ever before, their ability to extract meaningful business insights is not keeping pace with its availability. Now more than ever before, it is critical for organizations to identify individuals and key business partners within their organizations that have the ability and expertise to extract meaningful insights. An organization’s willingness and ability to do so could make the difference in the global war for talent.
