Contingent Workforce Solutions

The key to an agile business? Flexible talent

In rapidly changing industries and marketplaces, managing talent flexibly keeps companies lean and competitive. For many organisations, this means that a robust contingent workforce strategy is key to agility.

Hudson RPO’s Managed Service Provider (MSP) solution helps companies make the smartest, most effective use of their contingent workforce spend.

Contingent workers at your fingertips

To optimise your organisation’s talent supply, our MSP specialists can directly source contingent workers and vet and manage contingent workforce agencies. You’ll gain rapid access to the skills you need to run your business.

We can also help you with urgent requirements for gig workers and freelancers, putting you in contact with extra support when it's needed most, or on a casual basis.

Our MSP solution controls vendor costs and mitigates contingent talent risks. It also helps ensure labour law compliance at local and global levels.

A managed service provider (MSP) helps organisations manage their regional or global contingent workforce. An MSP partner provides:

  • Flexible talent vendor and budget oversight.
  • Flexible talent compliance expertise.
  • Contingent workforce recruitment, onboarding, off-boarding, tracking, and engagement.
  • Flexible talent process improvements.

A managed service provider is the right choice for recruitment when you lack a cohesive contingent workforce strategy. Common flexible talent issues that benefit from an MSP:

  • Lack of talent vendor oversight.
  • Rising flexible workforce costs regionally or globally.
  • Labour law and regulatory compliance.
  • Changeable contingent talent needs.

The difference between a recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) solution and a managed service provider (MSP) solution is that MSP falls under the umbrella of RPO. You may partner with an RPO for an exclusive contingent workforce solution, or an MSP engagement may be one of several solutions your RPO partner provides.

Our MSP solution offers:

  • Access to a robust talent pipeline
  • Contingent workforce optimisation
  • A dedicated onsite or virtual MSP team
  • Evaluation of flexible talent engagement
  • Streamlined onboarding and off-boarding
  • Flexible talent tracking across your organisation
  • Rigorous flexible talent vendor selection and oversight
  • Customised contingent workforce strategies based on industry insights
  • Labour law compliance for single-location companies and multinationals

Consider an MSP talent solution if you want:

  • Lower flexible workforce costs
  • Contingent workforce intelligence
  • Improved access to contingent talent
  • Efficient contingent workforce onboarding and management
  • Continuous compliance with fast-changing labour laws and regulations
  • Workforce agility and scalability to meet business, industry, and market variables
