To envision what the typical contingent workforce manager is up against, consider “Company A,” a retail business that employs 500 contingent workers. In addition, it’s pulling in several times that many prospective contingent workers from various sources. Now toss in multiple tasks each manager must complete, and it’s easy to see how overseeing a contingent workforce could prove overwhelming, sucking valuable time and resources away from other important tasks.
Let’s take a look at this scenario and how a cutting-edge vendor management system (VMS) solution such as PRO Unlimited’s Wand VMS could help solve the business challenge.
The Challenge: Businesses have numerous contingent workers at different stages in their lifecycles, and it can be difficult to manage them efficiently.
Why is this an issue? Many managers have a ton of their plates and see contingent workforce management tasks as mundane, lower-priority items. When the processes and technology required to perform these action items are clumsy and cumbersome, these tasks get pushed even further to the back burner.
This type of fragmented, siloed and haphazard approach to managing contingent workers can result in loss of talent, project delays and inefficient spend.
