A Business Case for Outsourcing the Management of Your Contingent Workforce (MSP Outsourcing Study/Report)

The objective of this report is to build a case for outsourcing the management of the contingent workforce to a third party Managed Services Provider (MSP). This report will discuss why and when it makes sense to outsource, when you know it is right for your organization and how to initiate the transformation. This report will serve as a guide for buyers who realize they need a centrally managed solution. If the organization already has a centrally managed solution, this can serve as a benchmarking tool that buyers can use to measure their program’s scope and quality of service and evaluate their model against the best in class Managed Services Provider Programs.
