Streamlining Contingent Workforce Management, Outsource or Manage In- House?
The permanent recruitment market is changing and more Australian businesses are embracing contingent workforces. With this growth it is essential that recruiters adapt and seek to improve processes and operations to manage this workforce effectively.
More and more agencies are investing in technology to improve efficiencies and streamline every day processes, and if you already haven’t done so it’s about time you did. At SDP Solutions we offer recruitment agencies the choice of managing an automated, streamlined process in house through TemPay or alternatively outsourcing the management of their contractor and temp desk to SDP directly where a tailored solution can be built especially for your agency’s requirements.
