“To compete in the future, organizations will need to push talent management beyond the confines of the enterprise wall to include the new extended workforce: a global network of outside contractors, outsourcing partners, vendors, strategic partners and other nontraditional workers.”

Success in the MSP - Contingent Workforce Staffing

Over 70% of HireTalent’s revenue is generated from clients that have outsourced the management of their contingent staffing programs to a managed service provider (MSP) or vendor management system (VMS).  HireTalent appreciates and embraces the value an MSP brings to the table.  We have diligently worked to align our recruitment model with the MSP/VMS solution environment and have built a metric-based approach that complements this model, ultimately resulting in improved overall performance for our clients.

While many staffing firms are either distancing themselves from MSP programs or attempting to circumvent the established rules around the system, we seek to support our clients while maintaining a collaborative partnership with their MSP.  Viewing the MSP as an extension of our sales organization, we let the programs sell our services on our behalf.  We pride ourselves in our ability to build strong relationships with our MSP program managers, and continuously provide them with market data to help guide them and their client on industry trends and the competitive landscape.  We excel in recruiting and delivery by promptly providing high-quality passive and active candidates to our clients.  As such, HireTalent has achieved continued success through the quality of service we are able to maintain.

Many firms look to create efficiencies and cost savings by offshoring recruiting and hiring lower skilled labor to source talent.  Unfortunately, what generally results from this strategy is a high number of unqualified resumes, and ultimately more work for the program manager.  Instead, we believe organizations create efficiency and cost savings by:

  • Investing in quality recruiters located in geographically-depressed locations.
  • Promoting education and training, resulting in higher productivity per recruiter.
  • Investing only in high-quality candidates who ultimately generate value and cost savings for clients.

This approach is essential for both program managers and end clients because they can truly rely on receiving high-quality submissions 100% of the time.

Our dedicated account teams deploy a proactively built candidate pool matched to specific client needs.  We leverage the strength of our job profile repository, which reinforces a thorough understanding of resource needs across clients and geographies.  By coupling the cost advantages of our Distributed Delivery Model with the incorporation of MSP fees into our pricing model, we are able to optimize our clients’ spend on contingent staffing.

We are actively working with all major MSP providers including Pontoon, Allegis, Kelly Services, Guidant Group, Tapfin, ProUnlimited, and Agile-1.  Additionally, we have extensive experience working with leading VMS tools such as FieldGlass, IQNavigator, Beeline, PeopleClick and Taleo, among others.  Our experience and understanding of their nuances allows us to provide an unparalleled level of service and support to our clients that engage these solutions.

Quite simply, HireTalent’s goal is to support our clients by quickly and efficiently providing the highest caliber talent while fostering a collaborative and lasting partnership.  HireTalent is by far the easiest staffing provider you will work with and we are proud to call our model the Staffing Supplier Simplified!
