  • Regardless of our intentions, values and beliefs, we often automatically jump to conclusions. In talent management, this can cause more damage than simply a prolonged hiring process.

    Without mitigating our automatic biases, they can easily make it more difficult for us to find, attract, engage and retain talent. This quick-hitting webinar will unpack the what, why and how of unconscious bias.

  • Participate in Jobscience's panel conversation!

    When compensation -- or a consumer brand -- is not the main attraction of your offer, how does your organization find, engage, and hire top talent?

    Recruiting leaders from non-profit sectors of government and education discuss attracting talent for their social causes, cost effective strategies when budgets are limiting and the role of technology.

    Panelists include::
    Catherine Pajic, Global Recruiter, National Democratic Institute
    Ian McLellan, National Director of Recruitment and Selection, Educational Enterprises
    Ted Elliott, CEO, Jobscience
  • As organizations continue to battle for top talent, distinguishing your company from the competition has never been more crucial to attracting the best candidates. A strong employer brand enables companies to stand above the crowd, to source higher quality applicants, and ultimately, to drive business growth.

    The reality is that to be successful your employer brand and your talent acquisition strategy must be in lockstep. As such, organizations are increasingly looking to external experts, including RPO providers, to ensure this critical alignment of strategy and brand.

    Join us as we take a look at the current employer brand landscape, how a strong talent acquisition strategy impacts the brand, and the role providers are playing in the space.

    Speakers:
    Gary Bragar – HR Outsourcing Research Director, NelsonHall
    Mitzi Jordan – Global Practice Leader, Talent Acquisition Advisory, Futurestep

  • Get the Most Out of Your Flexible Workforce with Services Procurement Recorded: Jul 25 2012 57 mins
    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
    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
    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
    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
    Typically companies rely quite heavily on contract labour, especially in IT.

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
