More often than not, organizations will utilize traditional methods of acquiring talent through greater usage of staffing firms. However, many HR and Procurement executives are recognizing a major paradigm shift that is underway. A new best practice has emerged: A purely vendor-neutral and integrated Managed Services Provider (MSP) and Vendor Management System (VMS) model.

This paper includes practitioner perspectives from executives at large, global companies such as Novartis, a healthcare company that provides solutions to address the evolving needs of patients. 

Novartis executives describe their positive experience with a purely vendor-neutral model: "Prior to our current vendor-neutral model, we used a staffing agency model in the capacity of a MSP to source and acquire contingent workers across many of our US locations. However, it was difficult to convince our managers that a staffing firm was equipped to address their complex sourcing needs. We found a significant amount of contingent labor spend circumvented the managed services program, and it was very difficult to control rogue spending. Therefore, we conducted an assessment of our contingent workforce program and determined that the best solution for us was a purely vendor-neutral and combined MSP and VMS model."

The research also captured insights from suppliers including Zenith Talent. Sunil Bagai, CEO, Zenith Talent Corporation says this about the purely vendor-neutral model: "A vendor neutral program is a staffing supplier's dream. It allows us to focus on finding amazing talent instead of worrying about internal competition from an MSP. The benefits of a fully integrated solution deliver greater value to its ecosystem of clients, suppliers and workers."

PRO will also touch on a number of key strategies including how a purely vendor-neutral, integrated MSP and VMS model can successfully identify, source, track and manage professional contingent workers around the globe.

"The contingent workforce management space has been going under a radical transformation in the past several years. We have witnessed Fortune 1000 companies migrating from a MSP staffing model to a purely vendor-neutral approach," said Carmen Malatino, Senior Director Sales Operations and Corporate Marketing. "I am looking forward to sharing the highlights of the research paper with HRO Today's conference delegates and demonstrating how this model will optimize their contingent labor programs. I am especially grateful to have been invited to take part in what should be a very insightful presentation with the industry's leading HR and procurement executives."
