Our Integrated Solution

Our unique approach seamlessly integrates our managed services solutions and vendor management system to create a comprehensive workforce management solution.

Managed Service Provider

We pioneered the purely vendor-neutral managed service provider model and continue to innovate the space today.

Vendor Management System

Our award-winning SaaS-based Wand VMS platform provides clients with the first true native mobile VMS.

Transforming Contingent Workforce Management

PRO Unlimited is a pioneer in contingent workforce management, laying the foundation with the launch of contract 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.

Indeed, 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.

Contingent Workforce Management: Be Ready

February 7, 2016
2016 promises to be a year that is impacted by regulatory requirements and emerging technologies; specifically affecting the contingent workforce. These latest guidelines should not come as a surprise to anyone – they have been heavily touted. However, organizations need to take notice and implement processes to address them. Below are three reasons why 2016 will be a very important year in contingent labor: Affordable Care Act (ACA) 2.0: Phase 2 of the ACA took effect on 1/1/16. As a result, there is a new set of cost/compliance considerations that require staffing suppliers and SOW/Project firms with 50-99 employees to address. Mobile Disruption and Contingent Labor:  By the end of 2016, over 90% of all internet connections will be on a mobile device. Contingent labor users are increasingly demanding mobile apps for execution/management of their contingent workforce programs. Mobile apps will be the driving force behind user adoption, and those companies who implement a mobile first philosophy will be able to capitalize on this trend while realizing a competitive advantage. 1099 Contractor Compliance: This is the year of enforcement. Every year there are new bills being proposed, threats of increased audit notices, and legal experts writing white papers urging action to be 1099 compliant. In 2015, we saw more legal activity and laws being passed; and large, prominent corporations’ practices being challenged via suit. We are predicting that 2016 will actually be a year where the threats become reality. There are a number of services and technology solutions that can help support organizations in the light of these regulatory and changing environments. Here are three key recommendations that executives can take to address ACA 2.0 and 1099 contractor compliance along with the shift to mobile technology. Identify and partner with a provider that has an in-depth understanding of not only the ACA 2.0, but also, all of the worker classification guidelines including the Fair Labor and Standards Act (FLSA) and the IRS’ Categories of Evidence. Organizations need to rely on the expertise and guidance of their Managed Services Provider (MSP) to know what is required when it comes to classifying exempt and non-exempt professionals. Leverage a Vendor Management System (VMS) with a comprehensive mobile platform; specifically a technology solution that can be executed from a smart phone, tablet, or wearable. Today, more than ever, we live in a mobile world where we are always on. Organizations require solutions that workers can easily use and access and ultimately, make the company and contingent workforce more effective. Collaborate with a provider that has a rich history in architecting 1099 compliance management (history matters with the IRS). Companies that have completed hundreds of thousands of 1099 screenings without any being overturned are the type of providers human resources and procurement professionals need to partner with.  They should also look for providers who employ former IRS lead auditors because at the end of the day, it is all about protecting a company’s reputation, workforce, and bottom line. With the complexity of today’s regulatory and technology driven landscape, organizations constantly
