  • Welcome Staffing & Recruiting Agency Professionals to Jobscience & Menemsha Group's 3-Part, Sales Productivity Series --- "The Road to Winning More Business."

    Part 2: Accelerate Past Your Competition By Improving How You Qualify Job Orders.

    What if there was a way to shorten your sales cycle from 25 days to 20 days? And imagine if instead of closing two or three job orders out of ten you could close five or even six or seven out of ten job orders? Combined, that would be a significant boost to your sales results, without having to exert additional prospecting time and energy. That is what we call working smart!

    Proven sales coach to staffing agencies, Dan Fisher of Menemsha Group will highlight the most important and often most overlooked qualification elements of taking a client requirement.

    Key learning experiences include:
    •How to establish yourself as an equal peer with your client (& why this is so critical)?
    •How you can change the playing field (change the client requirement)?
    •How to eliminate latency and avoid a stalled sales cycle?
    •How to leverage recruitment agency CRM software to drive consistent practices of taking a job order?
  • While most parents would be delighted if their offspring wanted to become an accountant, lawyer or even an actuary, they may be less encouraging if their son or daughter said they wanted to be a hacker. This is the negative manifestation of working in the cyber security industry that is often portrayed in the media. The reality is very different, with careers in cyber security providing fantastic opportunities that are hugely varied, really challenging and help to do good for society.

    Structured career paths provide an opportunity to progress quickly with jobs in large audit and accountancy firms through to small specialist boutique start-ups, as well as the chance for international work and creating new businesses. In addition, the whole industry is very diverse and is looking for people with a very wide range of talents.

    The problem is how do we communicate this to people who may be interested in the industry? Just as important for young people, how do we get to the influencers; their parents and their careers advisors to understand what an exciting place the cyber security industry is to work in and what they can expect in terms of the types of company they could work for and their salary expectations.

    The problem can be partially solved through education, information and support from businesses working together with a consistent message designed to encourage the very best people into the industry.

    In this presentation, Ian Glover from CREST will look at the challenges of attracting the brightest young people into careers that traditionally have an image problem and providing a strong career path once they are in. In particular, he will focus on the importance of properly-run internships and Government funded initiatives to educate and inform.

  • In times of increasing employee choice and the ‘portfolio career’, does HR think about the talent in our organisations as consumers just as our marketing teams would view our customers and clients? Recent research by the Henley Business School suggests not. Professor Nick Kemsley, non-exec Director of Head Light and Co-director at Henley Business School Centre for HR Excellence will share the findings from research from Henley Business School. He’ll explain why he thinks many talent management models are based on out-dated assumptions and that a real shift of HR thinking and action needs to be taking place now. He will highlight the implications for how we talk to, work with and develop our people – and suggest how talent management software plays a role.

  • We are approaching a time when your business will have to manage the needs and behaviours of four different generations all at once. And make no mistake, each generation behaves very differently.

    A multi-generational workplace is inevitably a complicated one. People of different ages typically have different perspectives on the world. They disagree on the most fundamental issues. They dress differently, eat differently and travel differently. And more pertinently, they work differently.

    Using the latest research, insights and opinions available, Russell Beck, Impellam’s Head of Consulting, examines the challenges inherent within a multi-generational workforce.

    He’ll be focusing on the three generations that are currently the most abundant at work; Baby Boomers, Generation X and Generation Y.

  • Get the Most Out of Your Flexible Workforce with Services Procurement Recorded: Jul 25 2012 57 mins
    Amy Woodham, Product Manager – Beeline
    As a company’s employee landscape shifts to include more flexible workers, including project-based workers, it becomes increasingly more important and apparent that gaining visibility into this portion of a company’s workforce is not only necessary but vital to the future operation of the business. Companies have recognized the need to manage their temporary and professional staff (or contingent staff) through a Vendor Management System (VMS) but what about the projects and the consultants or workers associated with those projects obtained through a Statement-of-Work (SOW)? This category is managed through a process known as Services Procurement.

    Services Procurement is a process for buying and managing complex service categories. Unlike procuring physical goods, buying services is usually less centralized within a corporation and relies on a completely different supply chain than physical goods. The management of SOW engagements is dramatically different than that of contingent staffing. Beeline’s Services Procurement tool provides more than just insight into the workers and projects. This webcast will educate you on the benefits of managing this work group, over and above the cost savings it can provide.
  • Outsourced Workers: Building a Case for Managing Your Non-Strategic Workforce Recorded: Jul 24 2012 62 mins
    Cynthia Moore, Senior Manager – Discover Financial Services
    Outsourced Workers are service workers contracted through a supplier who have been hired to perform a specific function outside of your organization’s core business. A few examples include facilities management, janitorial services, food services, and security services. Companies have found that they have measures in place to track and manage their full-time and contingent or temporary staff, but due to various and inconsistent tracking methods of their Outsourced Workers, it has created inaccurate headcounts and ultimate security risks across their organizations.

    Learn how you can build a business case for managing your Outsourced Workers. We’ll provide tips on how to manage internal relationships to ultimately get buy-in to alleviate risk to your organization today.
  • Outsourced Workers: Why Managing Your Non-Strategic Workforce Should Matter Recorded: Jul 19 2012 48 mins
    Teresa Moore, Product Manager – Beeline
    Outsourced Workers provide services outside of the core competencies of an organization that are generally not time constrained. These services are usually bound by Master Service Agreements (MSAs) between the client and the supplier, and may include lawn maintenance, janitors, security guards, dining services, and more. Does your organization have a simple and streamlined way of tracking its service workers? If asked today to provide a list of all non-FTE workers who have access to your intellectual and physical property, could you provide that? Does your organization have a consistent onboarding and offboarding process for service workers?

    Companies have found that they have measures in place to track and manage their full-time and contingent or temporary staff, but due to various and inconsistent tracking methods of their Outsourced Workers, it has created inaccurate headcounts and security risks across their organizations. Because companies are working with more service workers than ever before, Beeline’s Outsourced Workers solution can ensure those service workers are being properly on- and offboarded. This webcast will educate you on Outsourced Workers and what your organization can do to gain visibility while minimizing risk.

  • VMS 101: A Current Perspective Recorded: Dec 20 2011 59 mins
    Colleen Tiner – VP Product Management, Beeline
    More and more organizations are relying on the use of contingent and project-based labor to complement their permanent workforce. The increased use has stemmed from a variety of factors including economic uncertainty, skill shortages, and individuals choosing to enter the workforce through alternative methods. With the upward trend of contingent and project-based labor usage and regulatory changes across the globe, it is imperative that organizations have full visibility into all classifications of their workforce.

    This webcast will explore the evolution of Vendor Management Systems (VMS) and current trends associated with the Vendor Management System. Simply put, VMS is the software that automates the hiring process of contract workers. It is often an Internet-enabled, Web-based application that helps to manage and procure staffing services from requisition to billing and reviewing. Most VMS tools are delivered through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. VMS tools provide significant improvements in reporting and analytics capabilities that far outperform manual systems and processes. VMS tools are typically operated externally by an MSP (managed service provider), by the VOP (vendor on premise) or internally within an organization by a VMO (vendor management office).

    A VMS is implemented to reduce costs, enforce policy and improve the quality of contingent and project based labor programs. You will discover how the workforce is changing across the board in terms of demographics, headcount, strategy, and cost management. Learn how your contingent labor can be divided into four key areas to better help manage your workforce. In this webcast, you will review the different improvement models and discuss how to begin building a business case.

  • A Better Way Of Buying Contract Labour? Recorded: Mar 21 2011 62 mins
    Alastair Dobson, Managing Director Beeline Europe
    Typically companies rely quite heavily on contract labour, especially in IT. The traditional commercial model utilised by buyers is to streamline the supply base in return for reduced margins from the agencies. But does this model give you access to the best candidates and how do you know if you are paying the right rate? This presentation will discuss an alternative way of managing contract labour using a combination of technology and service that allows greater access to candidates and better information on market rates.

    The speakers will discuss in further detail:

    - Vendor Neutral Managed Service Programs
    - Vendor Management Software (VMS)
    - Rate Card Benchmarking
