5 Ways to Make a Contingent Workforce Program More Strategic & Compliant

Contingent workers provide great flexibility to companies looking for specialist skills on an as-needed basis.

Given the advantages, it’s no wonder that the use of contingent workforces continues to grow at a rapid pace. However, that growth also brings challenges as contingent workers are often managed piecemeal by separate departments using different vendors and various processes. The result can be a fragmented system that opens a company up to inefficiencies and compliance risks.

Third party vendors have developed solutions aimed at helping companies streamline and manage the growing contingent workforce but with all the options available, how can you determine which one will work best for your company?

The webinar will cover why companies turn to third parties and provide an overview of Contingent Workforce Models, including Vendor Management Systems (VMS), Managed Service Providers (MSP) and Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO). We’ll examine five (5) key areas that you can focus on when deciding on the right program for your circumstances:

  • Program structure;
  • Supplier management;
  • Cost, value & quality;
  • Compliance and risk;
  •  Data & analytics.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, April 2 to learn more about Contingent Workforce Models and how to work effectively with third-party suppliers.

Our speaker, Julia Levy, will share best practices around VMS, MSP and RPO and how her company, Assurant is using their programs to drive efficiencies and meet business growth demands. She’ll also dispel some of the myths associated with supplying talent through a third-party talent model.

You’ll leave the session with tips on how to work with third party suppliers and metrics that go beyond time and cost.

Who should attend?

If you’re weighing Contingent Workforce Models or want to get more out of an existing system, join us on Thursday April 2.

Ban-the-Box and Other Pre-Employment Dilemmas

Finding qualified applicants for jobs is a constant challenge for reasons that go beyond simply finding individuals with the necessary skills, experience, training and education.

Employers must also identify candidates who fit with a company’s culture, who will work well with others, and who will be trustworthy and help solve, rather than create, employment-related issues.

As a result, many employers have adopted processes designed to identify latent issues with applicants, such as criminal history inquiries and background checks.

While employers took these steps with relatively limited legal restriction or government oversight for many years, trends such as “ban-the-box” are now sweeping the country. Agencies like the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission are taking aggressive action to combat perceived areas for potential discrimination and unfairness in pre-employment inquiries.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, March 25 to learn more about the current trends and how your can continue to recruit the right candidates while protecting your company from potential litigation.

Talent Management, Webinars

Building the Case for Talent Management

The right talent management approach is integral to business success, but it’s not always easy to quantify results and identify what that approach should be.

HR teams could make good use of the budget, but leadership often struggle to understand where to make investments in talent management, especially when the return may not be immediately measurable or apparent.

Although the struggle can be frustrating, it’s also an area where HR and Talent Management professionals can have a big impact and bolster their credibility as true strategic business partners. The key is to present a meaningful business case for talent management projects. HR leaders need to   provide business intelligence that makes a clear and concise case for these investments, and that is firmly aligned to strategic objectives.

That sounds daunting, but there are proven steps you can take to build a compelling business case, and metrics and tools that will help you compile the necessary business intelligence to convince your executive team.

The Art of Making Job Descriptions Work for You

Is writing a job description just one more task that has to be checked off? Do you find yourself reduced to just putting down the basic bullets and pressing send before forgetting all about it?

You’re not alone – but you could be missing out on a great opportunity to attract better qualified talent.

A job description doesn’t need to be a list of clichés and impossible requirements. Instead, it can provide your ideal candidate with a snapshot of life inside your company and the exiting possibilities for the right hire. It can leverage and enhance your brand, building up interest even from candidates who aren’t considering a job move…yet.

In fact, a well written job description is the ultimate sourcing tool. Learning how to polish up your prose to create an attractive picture for candidates will help you stand out from the crowd and attract the talent your company wants to hire.

Join our free webinar on Thursday March 12 for a practical session on polishing up your job descriptions and attracting great talent.

This webinar, led by Jessica Max, of Mighty Max Sourcing, will cover the bigger and more nuanced aspects of writing an excellent job description, including:

  • Where the job description writing process starts;

  • Having consistent messaging without taking a “one size fits all” approach;
  • Why the process of job description writing is just as much for the recruiter as it is for the candidate;
  • Serving the HR function of describing performance duties, expectations, BQs & PQs, while also engaging your candidates
  • Using job descriptions for corporate branding.

TLNT Webinar: Influencing Behavior and Getting to “Yes”

You’ve come up with a great new approach to a problem, or a new process that will make your team so much more efficient. The problem? You need to get buy in from different people who may not share your priorities.

Ever wished there were steps you could take or words you could say that would increase the chances of someone saying “Yes” to your suggestions?

In the last 30 years, psychologists and researchers have started to come up with some answers, and taken an interest in the subject of how people make decisions, and what impacts the decision-making process, too. They’ve discovered that there are specific behaviors and approaches that we can use to have more influence on the behavior of  people around us.

The secret you need to know

The secret is understanding all of factors, external and internal, that impact the way people make decisions.

Learning more about the psychology of influence and how decision biases work can help us communicate more effectively, influence behavior and persuade our audiences. It can also help us recognize when these tools are being deployed to influence our own decision making and give us greater insight into the factors that affect the decisions we make for ourselves.

Join our free webinar on Thursday, Feb. 26 for a practical session on proven tools and techniques to influence people’s behavior and increase the chances they’ll say “Yes” when you need them to.

During the webinar, our expert speaker, Paul Herbert, will address:

  • Social Psychology principles including reciprocity, commitment and consistency, social proof, and consensus;
  • Decision biases like the Decoy Effect and the Endowment Effect;
  • Ways you can leverage these principles and biases to be more successful when you’re presenting ideas;
  • How to know when the tools are being used on you to nudge your decision making.

Who should attend?

This webinar will be valuable for any professional who needs to sell an idea, get buy in or plans, or simply increase the chance of getting to “Yes.” If that’s you,  join us on Thursday Feb. 26.
