The temporary workforce – widely regarded as the most disruptive segment in terms of growth and innovation – offers so many benefits in terms of flexibility, availability and, above all, talent. But to maximise those benefits, that work force needs to be visualised and managed in a robust and cost-effective way.
The Consultancy sector is a beneficiary of this flexible talent, but there are also significant risks:
- Reputational risk – using contract workforce that may not be embedded into the consultancies or end customers’ culture
- Operational risk – sometime relying on the flexible nature of the contract market without having great ‘talent visibility’ or reassurance on talent availability
- Commercial risk – Intellectual Property and Commercially Sensitive Projects need to be properly protested
- Financial risk – it is harder to benchmark consistent cost profiles in flexible market; niche skills are more sensitive to supply shortages or sudden spikes in demand. Flexible workers may also be less well aligned to ‘land and expand’ or account growth incentives.
If these are risks you are looking to mitigate, then it is the sort of challenge Marshall Wolfe can help with.
Associates at Marshall Wolfe have designed a Software Application that focuses on ‘Talent Visibility’ and Quality Assurance rather than automating elements of the recruitment cycle that should, in our opinion, remain relationship focussed.
Virtual Bench gives clear visibility of your known and trusted resources (‘Associates’) (from the past as well as the recent past).
Virtual Bench is designed to work in conjunction with a comprehensive package of processes and templates that we use to radically improve the efficiency of the use of flexible workers whilst reducing the cost and project risk.
Depending on the type of operation, we also have a number of strategies to drive up revenues. Furthermore, we support the transition of Consultancies and Service organisations to a new Operating Model where the interaction with their temporary work force forms a robust part of successful project delivery.
Virtual Bench is designed to fit into the new requirements of GDPR. It also helps to allow companies to work more effectively within a ‘Work Package’ or ‘Statement of Work’ framework rather than just traditional ‘Time and Materials’ engagements (more detail on that towards the end of the Summer).
