Global HR leader outlines how the established managed service provider (MSP) model helps mid-sized companies manage contingent workers, contractors and permanent hires

ATLANTA – February 22, 2017 – Mid-sized companies are adopting comprehensive workforce management strategies that have typically been reserved for large corporations to help source, hire and manage external labor, according to a white paper published today by Randstad Sourceright, a global talent solutions leader.

“As talent demands begin to outstrip supply, small and mid-sized companies are turning to a contingent workforce to secure the staff they need to drive growth,” said the white paper’s author Shirley Jones, president of Randstad Corporate Services, a division of Randstad Sourceright. “This shift has caused companies to change the way they hire and manage contractors, freelancers and permanent employees—leading many to implement a total talent strategy that an MSP can deliver.”

An MSP model can help an organization streamline their employee recruitment process to quickly acquire the best candidate for contract or permanent jobs, while further improving compliance and employee engagement.

The white paper, entitled “Total Talent MSP: Delivering Large Enterprise Advantages to Mid-Size Companies” explores the benefits, best practices and unique value that an MSP can deliver for mid-sized and single-location companies. A key to the success of a total talent approach is a dedicated talent advisor team that works onsite or virtually as an extension of the client organization. This person is responsible for improving and expediting the hiring process, while often substantially cutting costs.

“Mid-sized organizations often have high growth expectations, so they must be nimble to compete for talent,” said Rebecca Henderson, CEO of Randstad Sourceright. “The processes and strategies that once served a small company well can begin to hinder efficiency and agility in a larger environment. A total talent MSP approach can quickly align and scale growth expectations for organizations of all sizes.”

A complimentary version of the “Total Talent MSP” white paper can be downloaded on Randstad Sourceright’s website.
