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.

Best Practices for Building a Private Contract Talent Network

December 7, 2016
The Sourcing Industry Group (SIG) has invited PRO Unlimited to host an information session titled, “Leverage Your Contract Talent Network to Generate Cost-savings.” Many companies have successfully tapped into their employees’ networks to directly source professional contingent (temporary/freelance) talent. This approach has a significant impact on cost and engages workers who are pre-vetted or known. If you are interested in learning more, check out the webinar taking place on December 13th at 11:00 AM EST / 8:00 AM PST. Register here. How to Build a Private Contract Talent Network As organizations continue to expand the use of contingent talent to supplement their full-time workforce, they are also seeking ways to optimize their contingent workforce programs to generate additional cost-savings. Historically, this is done through the process of supplier rate rationalization, improvements in workflow and cycle time, and engaging a MSP and Vendor Management System (VMS) to drive efficiencies. While these measures generate cost-savings (particularly in first generation and early stage programs), more mature programs require the identification of other strategies like self-sourcing. When it’s built and managed correctly, a private talent network can be one of the primary drivers for generating savings in a company’s contingent workforce program. Understanding what is required to populate and roll out the network can be the difference in fully utilizing this forward-thinking, cost-saving strategy or failing to realize the benefits of self-sourcing. During the session, Brad plans to highlight how to build a private contract talent network, leverage technology to curate and manage it, and ways to incorporate it into an organization’s sourcing workflow. Attendees will learn how to: Understand how self-sourcing talent can lead to significant cost-savings Successfully implement your private talent network technology platform and drive adoption Learn how self-sourcing will improve the overall quality of your temp/freelance talent If you or a member of your team would benefit from a further discussion on how PRO is helping companies self-source, 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.

Why Your Vendor Management System Matters

November 28, 2016
Leading industry magazines continue to ask PRO Unlimited’s Brad Martin to share his expert insights into what is taking place in the Vendor Management System (VMS) space. HR.com happens to be the latest publication to tap Brad for his thought leadership expertise. 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. Additionally, they should be looking to remove friction points and barriers, making the user experience both seamless and highly intuitive. Read the full article here to see what consumerized features need to be designed into a VMS.

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.
