Is it Time for a Change?
Do you have the right workforce strategy to execute your business strategy?

Achieving the optimal mix of core vs. flexible resourcing is central to defining the right workforce strategy for your business. The options are varied and complex. Which positions should be staffed with full-time employees? Where should we utilize contingent resources to maintain flexibility? Where do Independent Contractors fit? How do we ensure our full-time staff are working  at the "top of license"?

Defining your workforce strategy is essential to determining the optimal talent strategy. The answers to these questions have a direct bearing  on the right talent acquisition structure and the optimal contingent workforce model from a completely holistic view.

Our experts have the depth and breadth of workforce strategy, planning and execution experience to help you get it right.

Companies often discover Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) and Managed Service Provider (MSP) programs are delivering diminished business value as they have matured. This can happen for a variety of reasons:

  • Business circumstances have changed and are now out of phase with the original rationale for outsourcing 

  • The model has achieved the goals of centralization, visibility and spend management but the service provider isn't innovating their solution model so the program has plateaued

  • New options are now available that change the landscape

If you find yourself in this situation, we can help. Our experienced consultants conduct a program assessment and work with your team to determine what changes are needed - ranging from implementing a new strategy to replace or augment the existing program to "insourcing" and bringing the function back in-house.

Do you have an integrated talent acquisition strategy? 

According to Staffing Industry Analysts, contingent labor as a % of total workforce has almost doubled from 2009 to 2016 and the trend is expected to continue:

  • 42% of companies expect to increase the use of contingent workers in the next 3-5 years

  • Contingent workers already exceed 40% of the workforce for many companies

Full-time and contingent talent acquisition have traditionally been managed as separate or loosely-coupled functions.  However, as companies are increasingly moving to a "blended" workforce structure, having an integrated talent acquisition strategy is essential to getting the right talent at the right time.

Strategic Sources can help you leverage your talent acquisition resources to deliver talent how and when the business needs to engage it across all labor categories.
